Product Review - Friends Forever Girls Giveaway



I am so happy to have been part of this product review and ecstatic to be able to host a giveaway from Friends Forever Girls.
When Mom Blog Marketing sent the notice out for reviewers, I couldn't respond quick enough. My daughter loves dolls.

When the box arrived I was like a little kid myself. I couldn't wait to open the colorful box to reveal the doll inside. I spread open the tissue paper and actually gasped. She was more beautiful than I had expected. Her name is Natalie and she is one of the Friends Forever Girls.

My daughter was sleeping after a traumatic bout with a medicine filled oral syringe, mommy when she arrived and I couldn't wait for her to see her. The kids are always so happy when I get to review a toy.

Even with a fever of 102 she was very happy to receive this doll. The exciting part for my daughter was that she isn't a baby doll. She is a big girl doll and very different from the rest of her dolls.


At 18 inches Natalie like the rest of the Friends Forever Girls comes with The First Day of Forever Book (introductory offer), Butterfly Promises bookmark, a cool clothing accessory (in this case a blue vest) and a duffel bag.


Lifted from the Friends Forever Girls Site:
Who are the Friends Forever Girls®? The Friends Forever Girls® are six characters with unique personalities that come to life through books and contemporary, age appropriate dolls for girls ages six and up. The dolls are 18 inches tall, have an all vinyl body, movable arms and legs and are able to stand on their own. The Friends Forever Girls® combine beautiful real looking dolls with content that delivers a much-needed positive message and image to the girls that play with them.

What are the Butterfly Promises? The Butterfly Promises are used as a tool to guide The Friends Forever Girls® when making decisions. They can also be used by you and your daughter! The Promises spell out “Butterfly” to make it easy to remember.

  • Be the best I can be
  • Use kindness and be fair
  • Tell the truth
  • Treat others the way I want to be treated
  • Encourage my friends
  • Respect myself and others
  • Find the courage to do what’s right
  • Listen to others, and remember…
  • You can do it!
In A Nutshell: There are a total of 4 dolls right now with 2 more being added this year. At a reasonable price of $59.00 a piece they are much more reasonable and practical than some other dolls. The dolls are beautiful and each one has a unique story. I love that they talk about friendship because, as we all can attest, female friendship are important to our psyche!

Also, Friends Forever Girls has also been very generous and issued a code to customers who order a doll. Enter the code Spring to receive a free Girl Friends Forever T-shirt. The code will expire on April 20th.

  3. I asked my daughter to let me know which one she likes and why. She told me "I like Reina because she loves animals like me and I want to be a doctor like her." How cute is that. My daughter will LOVE this doll.

  81. I think I would go with Marlee....my girls are Hailey and Riley and this seems to go. Plus, I prefer the brunette dolls (even though the girls are blondies!)

    I like that these dolls are bigger and more able to "play" with the toddler set. I can see my girls twirling and dancing and interacting with a big doll like this....they don't really care for the little ones.

    What a great contest...thanks for offering one of them up!
