Friends Forever Girls Doll Giveaway

Friends Forever Girls DollWhen Lillian's Friends Forever Girl came in the mail not only was she in heaven I myself was wowed. While she was lovingly stroking the doll's beautiful hair and dressing and undressing her I was taking pictures of the wrapping.

You know how toys usually have those horrible twisty ties to keep them in place in their packages? The stupid ties that could withstand a nuclear blast? Well Marlee--which you see at the right here--comes lovingly tied in her box with beautiful white ribbons in bows.

That's right, no steel cables, no rubber bands of doom, no duct tape, just pretty little bows you pull to release. Wow. It's about time somebody came up with that idea because I've been griping about it for years.

Friends Forever GirlsBut besides my ecstasy over the packaging the doll itself is just the sweetest thing. The Friends Forever Girls--Marlee, Nika, Reina and Natalie--each come in the latest fashions with their own cute little accessories and a copy of the Friends Forever Girls books. The dolls are dressable, movable and in all ways lovable (and much more reasonably priced than those other dolls-that-come-with-books-that-shall-not-be-named).

Friends Forever GirlsAs a special offer if you browse through the Friends Forever Girls site and purchase one of their products you'll get free shipping by entering the coupon code "springsale" at checkout.

But thanks to Friends Forever Girls and Mom Blog Marketing I have a doll to offer to a random winner this weekend. Any of the four lovely dolls of your choice so you can test out their cuteness for yourself. Thanks Friends Forever Girls!

Here's how to win:

Before 12 am Monday morning click here to reach the giveaway entry form then enter your name and email. I will pick one of the names at random, contact the winner via their email and publish the winner's first name and home town in next Tuesday's post.

This giveaway is open to readers with a U.S. address, good luck!

The Friends Forever people deserve an award for innovation in packaging! I hope they start a new trend...thanks for the contest!

Do you think these, if handled carefully, could be heirloom quality?

Veggie Mom said...

Love this little dolly! My girls are almost grown, so you should gift a gal with youngin's, but I just wanted to let you know that this post is EXACTLY the reason I shouted you out today. Have a Happy Easter!

Flea said...

That's genius, tying the doll down with ribbons!

I make heirloom quality smocked doll clothing. You know. If anyone's interested. These dolls are too pretty for regular clothes.

Daisy said...

Beautiful! The bows are a wonderful idea, too. so simple, and so beautiful -- classy all around.

Scribbit said...

Oh good to know Flea!

And Jennifer they feel very solid to me--they're thinner then the American Girls but feel as sturdy.

Thanks Veggie Mom!

Mandy said...

Don't want to be in the drawing as my daughter already has one; just want to go along with what you said, the dolls really are great! Great quality and the books are good stories for young girls too!

Jolanthe said...

Hairline Fracture said...

Lynn said...

Aw too bad...I'm about as close to Alaska as you can get and still be in Canada so can't enter. My daughter would love one of these, I'll have to check their site out. (I'm with you on those twist ties, I can't stand them!)

I actually use those annoying twist ties from toys for my food re-packaging. They are so much sturdier than the kind that come with bread or trash bags. Not sure why they need them to tie down toys, but I have found use for them.

Gianna said...

Aww they are so pretty, my daughter would love this :)

susan said...
