Girls and their dolls go together like milk and cookies. With so many dolls on the market it can be hard to choose. When looking for dolls for my princess, I like a doll with a little thought and perhaps a little meaning behind it. And this spring, girls who are looking for a fun and groovy feeling can find inspiration in a toy line that exclaims girls are important in the world!!
Groovy Girls, whose parent company is the famous Manhattan Toy brand, is celebrating their Sweet 16 this year with three Special Edition Sweet 16 Dolls and four "Core" dolls that start with the letter "B" – all whom are too groovy to pass up. These dolls are not your typical plastic dolls. They each have a plush body, and inspiring unique look, shown in their hairstyle, skin tone, and style choice. Groovy Girls encourage developing a girl’s sense of self identity and individualism, and that is shown within their line.
As the only girl with four brothers, I guess it was only natural that my daughter really took seriously her role as the princess of the family. And although I like her to realize all girls are much more than princesses; they are each smart, unique, and can do and be whatever they dream. I know that there is still a bit of a princess in all girls, and that doesn’t have to be a bad thing. That’s why I knew, Groovy Girls Princess Dahlia and The Royal Ritzy Bed, where the perfect matches for my daughter. As the Groovy Girl Princesses hope to inspire girls to be themselves, to develop their own personality and let their unique beauty shine through.
Standing about 13 inches tall, Princess Dahlia features curly golden blonde locks with pink highlights, flowered tiara and multi-colored dress. And because she is plush, she is not only great for play, she is great for bedtime cuddles as well. But if your little one prefers the bed to herself, the Royal Ritzy Bed is also available for Princess Dahlia to rest comfortably in.
The Royal Ritzy bed, is, of course, fit for a princess. It features a quilt with satin lining, and tulle trim and a satin pillow with tassels. My daughter was thrilled with the bed, it really made Princess Dahlia come to life for her – she loves accessories! If you’re familiar with the Groovy Girl line then you know this bed would also compliment and fit nicely in the Groovy Girls Hip-Happenin’ Dollhouse.
This was our first experience with Groovy Girls and I wish I would have found the line early. The uniqueness to each doll, their composition, price, and accessory line makes them a must have. A gift any little girl is sure to love and a collection which they will surely want to grow!
