Constructive Playthings Todays Girl Doll Giveaway

Constructive Playthings sent me two Todays Gir’s Dolls and a super cool Horse With Western Saddle and Outfit to check out and giveaway to a lucky reader just in time for the holidays.  As you can see the horse was a hit with my son. The dolls… not so much but that has more to do with my son than the dolls.

What we loved :

The horse who has been named ” Giddy-O” is amazingly sturdy,  he flies down cliffs ( the stairs)  over and over as my cowboy rescues him and he looks as good as new.  What I liked about the dolls was the diversity of ethnicities, I know this is pretty standard but the subtleties of the differences is what got me.  With only a few dolls to choose from I really feel like most girls could get a doll that reflected themselves without having to get a costly custom doll. I also liked that the dolls come with 3 outfits , you aren’t forced to spend more when times are tough enough.

What we didn’t like:

They aren’t terribly cuddly. I don’t think they are meant to be but as a girl I slept with ALL my dolls , my son sleeps with his one and only doll and these are too hard to even try.  I am sure this won’t bug most kids who are looking to dress them up and play pretend but for snugglers like us it was a bummer.

Want one? I am giving one Todays Girl Doll away !  But that’s not all , I am also giving away a Horse With Western Saddle & Outfit too.

    Just got the catalog last week and we’ve been eyeing “Katie”. Thanks for the helpful review!

    We like Emma; my daughter chose it because it looks like her.
    Thanks for information about this great site! I love that their toys and products appear sturdy and are affordable.

    I Like the Sophie doll, but any of the dolls are welcome at my house and where I work at a Head Start Center!

    My 2 little girls look totally different — the older one has brown hair/brown eyes and the younger has blonde hair/blue eyes. So….I guess that means I like BOTH the Katie and Emma dolls equally! ;)

    I think I would have to go with the Katie doll. It’s the doll that looks the most like my daughter and I think she would like it the most.
    Thanks!

    My blond hair, blue eyed, horse loving daughter would take great care of the horse and would love to have any of the dolls ride the horse!!!

    All the dolls are great in my eyes, but in my DD eyes she feels Katie or Emma are a Favorite. What another AWESOME giveaway…Thanks
