Christmas is just around the corner and I’m counting down the days with my favorite gifts for the creative people in your life.
Day 4- Barbie
It’s no secret that I love Barbie and I love that Bean loves Barbie too. I have fond memories from childhood of playing with Barbies and dressing them in vintage Barbie clothes that had been my mom’s when she was a little girl. Playing with Barbie dolls is great imaginative play for little girls. In our house, Barbie is usually a vet, a zoologist, an animal trainer, or works at the Humane Society (notice a trend here… Bean is animal obsessed.) I love that she is using her imagination, acting out social and vocational situations and that she is playing with a brand of toys that has been loved for 3 generations in our family!
Some Barbie Holiday Faves
We headed to the toy store the other night to do some holiday window shopping. Bean was immediately drawn to the Barbie section and was very vocal about her holiday favorites.
This is Bean last year with her Christmas gift. I wonder if she will find any items from her wish list under the Christmas tree this year?
Barbie Gives Back
One of the things that I love about Barbie is that they give back to kids. This year, Barbie has Barbie My Dreams #BarbieWishes campaign. They are inviting Barbie fans to make a heartfelt wish for someone special and it may just come true! For every wish submitted, $1 will be donated to Make-A-Wish® Canada. Wish big, because Barbie will be making wishes come true! Spread the word using #BarbieWishes. Wishes can be submitted to Barbie.com/mydreams up until December 31st.
Once uploaded to Barbie my Dreams™, submissions will be sent to the user’s Barbie my Dreams™, registered email address. If the wish is not for the parents, they can then forward their daughter’s heartfelt wish to its intended recipient (for example, a teacher, an aunt, etc). After all, the Holiday season is really about kindness, selflessness and being together!
Share this video via Social Media from the Barbie™ YouTube Channel using the hashtag #BarbieWishes and $1 will be donated to Make-A-Wish® Canada!
