Delighted today to bring you something a bit different as well as a brilliant giveaway if you have kids.
Chloe and Lola were both lucky enough to receive one of the newest Bratz dolls from the Study Abroad range each. I’m going to do a review first and at the end of the post you can enter my rafflecopter giveaway to win for your own child, or even you if you want!
So we received Sasha who is visiting the UK and Yasmin who is visiting Brazil.
Firstly meet Yasmin.
I especially love the accessories with this one. She has a suitcase and stickers to decorate it and in addition she has a full outfit, a brush, a bangle, a necklace, red phone box earrings and most importantly for visiting the UK, she has a teacup and some lovely biscuits on a plate.’
It’s far to say Lola loves Sasha as much as Chloe loves Yasmin.
Firstly, I know that when I was little, if these were around I would have wanted them, no question, they are bright, fun and attractive. I also love the fact they come with loads of accessories. The accessories are such that they are prone to getting lost easily, but thats where the suitcases and bags come in handy, so you can keep all your bits close to your doll. I also like the fact that they come with a complete other outfit, its lovely for the kids to have that, you don’t often get that included with a doll unless you buy extra outfits. What I also loved was the easy opening to learning about other cultures, of course you can always do this with your children anyway, but I do love that it prompted the questions from my kids. We ended up looking up Brazil and what it looks like, where it is on the map, what things from Brazil are famous…. it was less the case with the Sasha visiting the UK as we live here already, but personally I loved her British outfit. It must also be said that the dolls seem to be really high quality. I will mention that Sasha’s hair has a greasy feel, I believe there is some product on her hair, and I’m all for that if it keeps it sleek and shiny. I am a mother who is tired of combing impossible tangles and knots and frizz out of dolls and toy ponies.
I know there are concerns about the unreal shapes and details of the Bratz dolls and while I do think this is an issue of wider concern, its not one that bothers me a huge amount in this instance because I think the positives outweigh that issue really, and I believe that if I’m teaching my daughters positive attitudes and being a good role model as well as surrounding them with good role models and messages then a doll won’t make a difference.
I am being honest when I say I really love these dolls and would recommend them as quality toys that won’t fall apart, and there is no doubt that there has been great attention to detail paid when they have been designed.
Bratz Study Abroad dolls are available now at all good retailers, including Argos, Asda, Debenhams, Smyths, Tesco, The Entertainer and Toys R Us and the RRP is £24.99.
And with that glowing review I’m delighted to be able to offer you a chance to win a Bratz Study Abroad doll of your own. It will be one of the following and it will be a random selection, so unfortunately if you are the winner you will not be able to choose which one you win, but don’t fear, they are all fabulous!
