Let’s Go Camping

Posted on by Tori Hall

Who loves to go camping? We do!! With so many realistic and well-made accessories, our licensed Coleman® camping series provides endless opportunities for play all year long.

The boys are out and have already got their campfire started and lantern ready for the sing-along this evening. The Coleman® lantern is so very realistic and even lights up – how cool is that? The reversible playscene back drop helps create the campsite setting as well.

The iconic Coleman® cooler, complete with two doll-sized glasses of lemonade, is one of the most popular items in the camping category along with the camp stove. The camp stove is actually my favorite camping accessory! It measures approximately 6″ long and features a hinged lid with safety latch and 2 burners that actually illuminate to resemble a real Coleman® stove. Being outdoors can work up an appetite! The set also includes bacon, sunnyside up eggs, grilled cheese sandwich and a burger. A spatula is also included as are batteries for the lighted burners. Even grown ups will enjoy playing with these two accessories!

Don’t forget the tent and sleeping bag!!

Sleeping under the stars was never so much fun! The tent Continue Reading →

At the Doll Salon

Posted on by Tori Hall

 

One of the most popular doll play activities is doing your dolls’ hair. After all, how many of us learned how to create a ponytail or braid on our dolls before we ever tried creating the same style on our own hair. And if going to the salon is a treat for us, of course it is a treat for the dolls to go to the doll hair salon, too.

In order to recreate that perfect salon experience at home, we have everything your dolls will need! Let’s take a look at each of the items pictured above:

The Beauty Salon and Sweet Shop on Main Street Reversible Playscene is the perfect backdrop for doll play. Endless possibilities and plenty of inspiration in the artwork and when you are done playing, it folds flat for easy storage.

The Salon Chair will make it easy to give your doll the ultimate salon experience. Not only is it adjustable using the foot rest, but the hook and loop straps will help keep your doll seated while you work your hair styling magic.

Have fun with a little extra color in your hair style! Clip in hair extensions in bright blue, pink and purple Continue Reading →
