Thank you to The Beatrix Girls for sending Lark to live with us. All words and opinions are my own.
Earlier this week I mentioned that I had the opportunity to attend Sweet Suite while in Chicago. There were tons of great toy companies, some well-known that have been around for years and others that are just being introduced for the first time. One of the new companies – a company that I expect you’ll be hearing a lot of in the next few months – was the PopStar Club.
PopStar Club is the maker of a new line of collectible 12″ pop star dolls called The Beatrix Girls. The girls – Lark, Ainsley, Brayden, and Chantal – are all members of the same band. What sets them apart from other similarly-themed dolls is that these gals create actual music that your kids can download. Each band member also has a full background story. You can visit the Beatrix Girls website and find out their favorite foods, colors, where they’re each from, and more.
While the back story bit is a little outside of Bubbles’ interest level at the moment, I knew everything else about the dolls would appeal to her. At two and a half, she’s already declared her first career: to be a rockstar. She actually has a little guitar that’s her size and she runs and gets it any time we’re listening to music or if we stumble across a music video on TV. It absolutely cracks me up because she intuitively learned a power stance and bobs back and forth, playing her little heart out while singing along. She has also been known to collect her piano and drums and have both Daddy or Mama and one of the Beatrix Girls join her band.
The dolls aren’t available in stores just yet – but that doesn’t mean you can’t have one! One lucky reader is going to be able to choose their favorite Beatrix Girl and have it delivered directly to them. Giveaway closed – congrats Carolyn C.!
