Manhatten Toy Company is celebrating the Groovy Girls “Sweet 16” and in honor of this milestone, I wanted to tell you more about this wonderful collection of dolls! The Groovy Girls Princesses are not just any ordinary dolls, they represent so much more than that. Since 1998 the Groovy girls have been sharing a message with girls all around the world, letting them know that they are important. Each and every doll represents her very own style in clothes and hair and most importantly… skin color. Because no matter what you wear or how light or dark your skin may be, girls need to know that they are important! With an eight year old daughter that is quickly becoming more self conscious about what she wears and how she looks before heading to school in the morning, I think it’s important for her to know that she is special in her own way. She need not worry so much about what others think and should let her unique style shine.
The beautiful and funky Princess Dahlia has a head full of crazy strands and a dress that will make you instantly love her. I was so delighted that we received this adventurous Groovy Girl because her personality and traits are incredibly similar to my daughter’s! Just like Dahlia, my daughter enjoys all outdoor adventures and is the first one in the garden looking to discover new things. Just because her adventurous entail getting her dress dirty and her hair crazy, that doesn’t mean she doesn’t enjoy being pretty and extravagant. In fact she loves to have me style her hair and she adores bright and colorful outfits. My hope is that she will always be the outdoor princess that isn’t afraid to get dirty… and that no one takes that away from her. Groovy Girls message is a wonderful one and this is a brand of dolls that I fully support and love!
The overall quality of the doll and bed is very nice, something that is going to withstand many years of playtime. My daughter enjoys tucking her doll into the Royally Ritzy Bed at night, right beside her own. As she is slowly beginning to outgrow many of her dolls, it’s so great to find a collection that is more geared towards her age.
My daughter has been so pleased with her new Groovy Doll and bed and I am so grateful to have discovered a collection of toys that encourage my daughter’s individuality. There is a huge selection of dolls and accessories from the Groovy Girl collection and I guarantee you will find one that the special girl in your life would love to have.
