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.
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.
