We adopted a new doll into our family, last week! Her name is DeeDee and she’s part of the new Gund Girls collection.
Gund Girls are 17-inches of soft, plushy adorable! They are recommended for ages 3 and up and come with one removable outfit for playing dress-up. The dolls in this collection are “best friends in fashion”. Each of the seven Gund Girls has her own fashion flair and personality. Our DeeDee, for example, loves to travel and have adventures with her friends. Her favorite color is lavender, which matches her eyes. The cool part is that their outfits are interchangeable, so if you own more than one, you KNOW they will be trading clothes! A girl’s gotta do, what a girl’s gotta do.
What do I love about the Gund Girls? Though they are “plushies” they are durable, and seem very well-made. And then, there’s that “plushy” part. They’re soft — perfect for hugging and for taking a nap with. They have big, adorable, over-stuffed feet with bright-colored shoes. Who doesn’t love some pretty shoes, right? Everything about the dolls is colorful and appealing. When my granddaughters are here, they want to take DeeDee everywhere they go.
Any toy that encourages imagination the way a doll does, is a favorite on my list. No batteries to replace, no advanced technological degrees required — just good, old-fashioned fun and brain-power. You never have to tell a child how to play with a doll. Their creativity just automatically goes into high gear, and before long, you hear little snippets of “conversation” and witness all kinds of wonderful imaginative play. That’s exactly what’s been happening at our house. DeeDee is always swinging on the arm of one granddaughter or the other. And once in a while, their little brother hauls out the Rescue Heroes police car or high-jacks the Barbie jeep and takes her for a spin. I found her like this after the kids left, last evening.
