School will be out for the summer soon and what a better way to start the summer than with new friends! GUND Girls
are the perfect pals for some fun in the sun! GUND Girls each have unique personalities and signature styles:
- Brooklyn is a shopper
- Emma loves to paint
- Deedee is adventurous
- Sloan is a California girl.
There's a friend for every little girl! I was lucky enough to receive the Sloan 17" GUND doll
for Sophia to check out.
Sloan is a surfer girl who loves hanging out with her friends at the beach. When it comes to fashion, Sloan has a "hippie chic" California style and she LOVES bright colors -- like her yellow dress with the bright floral accents, and her big orange sandals! Sloan`s outfit is removable, so it can be shared with all her GUND Girls friends!
So here`s my take: The doll had arrived well packaged to ensure safe delivery during the shipping process. When I took her out I noticed how soft the body was and the cheerful burst of personality the doll brings. The plush doll is suitable for ages 3 and up -- Sophia is 4. I chose to surprise her by sticking the doll in her car seat when I picked her up from school. When she saw the doll she was super excited and fell in love with it at once. She loves playing mommy so instead of her buckling herself into her seat she buckled her doll in instead! Oops! Don`t worry, we quickly resolved that problem and her doll simply sat in the seat next to her on the way back home. When we arrived back she was more than happy to tell everyone she talked to about her new doll. Just don`t ask her what the name is because she changes it every time you ask.
I personally think the doll is a great toy for any little girl. It`s safe for kids with no small parts detaching, everything is sewn into the material, no beaded eyes, etc.Â so no choking hazard there. They have a couple dolls to choose from also so you can find the one to fit your child`s personality best. I went with Sloan simply because the hair and clothes matched Sophia`s hair and clothing style. So when the doll arrived it`s no wonder why she fell in love so quick. Plus, the bottom of the doll is a bit more flat so it can easily sit on flat surfaces without needing anything to support it.
|Please excuse the mess, this is her place to store the toys rather than her toy box!
Needless to say I was quite happy with my experience with GUND Girls and I think you would be too. Besides, it`s not really my opinion that matters on this one, it`s Sophia`s and she is very happy! Perfect for Christmas which is a little less than 6 months away!
