The holidays are here and while the kiddos are ecstatic I think I’m even more so. But when you have 2 weeks on your hand and not a trip planned ..it’s always good to come up with some creative ideas for the kids so as to keep telly-time to an absolute minimum.
Finding a host of creative outlets can sometimes be a challenge… I’ve found over the years that I need to plan well in advance and stock up on supplies so the kiddos have a creative outlet to channel their energies. This holiday was no different and whilst we set out to make puppets and paint, my daughter was yearning for something more-girly to do with her time.
She definitely got her wish for not a week into the holidays, she received the Barbie™ Color Stylin’ Hair Doll to experiment and get creative with. I’m sure every little girl vouches to be Barbie’s No.1 fan and my daughter is no different. She loves them so much, she’s collected umpteen over the years.
So you’re like thinking what is our (mother & daughter) obsession with Barbie…. actually the answer is quite simple. Barbie is produced by Mattel and if you’ve ever had a toy from Mattel, I’m sure your pretty much still have it till today. Mattel has always produced toys of outstanding quality…all of the Mattel toys that my husband and I bought from when our lil’ girl was a baby still remains in the family toy-boxes and that 3 kiddo’s later too.
Ok, so back to the topic at hand…how did my Lil’ Girl like her latest addition, Barbie™ Color Stylin’ Hair Doll. Lets take a pictorial walk through, shall we….. But first catch Lil’ Girl in her first ever vlog debut on You Tube 🙂
Now I must say I had equally as much fun doing this with my lil’ girl. It was definitely a great way to bond with her and we both had a great time trying out new hairstyles and mixing colors to create different styles. She loves the idea of being a Hairdresser so much, she’s already lined up her other Barbie’s for a Hair Styling treat.
Mattel has once again done a great job of coming up with a range in the“See What Happens When You Play with BarbieTM” campaign that encourages more than just dressing up Barbie is different outfits. It’s a chance for your lil’ girl to try on a new career, a new fantasy and even come up with a new story.
In fact so lovely are the wonderful folks at Mattel that they’ll be giving away 3..Yes!! Three sets of Barbie™ Color Stylin’ Hair Doll worth RM 99.90 each to three creative parent daughter duo’s who are readers of my blog.
The gist of this contest will be to encourage your lil’ girl to to showcase her hairdressing talents by doing up Barbie’s hair in creative, funky, fun or fashionable hairstyles. Be creative, create a party look, a work or shopping look and maybe a hairstyle for a day out at the beach.
Having said that let me just briefly outline the Terms of this contest.
