Raggedy Ann Doll by Aurora World Review and #Giveaway

Share the classic Raggedy Ann doll with your children and teach them about how you cherished and played with yours. Aurora World has brought back both Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Ann dolls in various sizes.

I had a Raggedy Ann doll when I was a little girl and this was always my favorite doll!  I took her everywhere.  I wish I had my own to pass down, but Aurora came to the rescue! The remake of the classic Raggedy Ann is even better, but still has the same features such as the well-known vintage clothing, the adorable smile and that huggable feeling.

Raggedy Ann Smiles

I am thrilled that my girls will get a chance to experience how wonderful these little dolls are. Raggedy Ann is delicately handmade which makes her even extra special! She has a great big smile and the reddest yarn hair.  When we took her out of the box that was all my girls would talk about: how red her hair was and how she is going to be a playmate for years to come!

Instead of video games, dolls that talk, and electronic toys, Raggedy Ann teaches children to use their imagination. Girls will want to treat her as a friend or a baby, cuddle with her, and love on her.

Waterbabies by Playmates Toys Review and #Giveaway

The new Generation of Waterbabies has come out! It features dolls with the theme of “I Dream to Be”, Twins and Giggly Wiggly. The series from “I Dream to Be” includes a Ballerina, Soccer Player, Princess, Cheerleader, Fairy and Fabulous all with different eye and hair colors and different races.  The Giggly Wiggly Waterbabies doll giggles when you touch her and looks like shes really sucking on her bottle or pacifier and the Twins bring two times the enjoyment at playtime!

Dream To Be a Ballerina Doll

We were able to review the new Dream to Be a Ballerina from the 2012 WaterBabies Collection from Playmates Toys. This was the perfect doll for my 4 year old daughter, Leah who always “dreams to be” a Ballerina someday.  The Ballerina comes dressed in the cutest little pink tutu and pink headband and hair bow to match.  It has become one of my girls favorite bath toys as well a toy they can snuggle and treat as If they have a real baby. They all love how it comes to life after adding warm water to it and how they can nurture them and bond with them for hours.

My daughters push her around in a stroller, take her in the bath and play dance with her.  Waterbabies are for children 3 and up.  They are very easy to use because it comes with instructions and an easy fill funnel to fill the doll with warm water to give it its “life-like” feel.

Waterbabies Ballerina Doll

I highly recommend the Waterbabies not only for their unique features, but also for the great price of $10.99 (SRP).  Great entertainment and a great value are always high on my list!
