Our-Generation-Dolls-Review

There’s never been a generation of girls quite like us. We’re following family traditions while creating some really cool ones of our own. Like teaching our younger cousins to recycle and collect dresses for girls who would otherwise gone without. We play hopscotch and jump rope and jacks until we’re out of breath from laughing and just can’t hop, jump or jack one more time. We’re dreamers and doers. And we are here to do it all. What comes next…

Christmas is around the corner and in our home we like spoiling one another with a little surprise under the tree. I love seeing the girl’s eyes light up as they unwrap a special toy they’ve been asking for all year and nothing beats playing together on the carpet Christmas morning. It can however become a land of waste a few days later with items not living up to expectations or worse, breaking instantly. Quality over quantity always wins and we’ve…

There’s no denying it. We are massive Disney fans. Whether it’s princess parties or imaginative play. The girls can’t get enough, and if I’m totally honest, neither can we. What’s not to love about a brand that has been around longer than most of us? I remember growing up with Disney. In fact, after my parent’s divorce I had one particular Minnie Mouse dress that I always wore. Nothing fancy – It had a red and white polka dot skirt…
