Win a Forever Friend


What's not to like about Friends Forever Girls?

The site's founders are both Moms who wanted to create ethnically diverse (yay!) dolls that daughters could relate to. The dolls are age-appropriate, with realistic bodies (another huge yay!). And each dolls has her own unique personality, as told in her storybook (and yet another huge yay! for encouraging reading).

I can't think of anything I don't like about this company.

In addition to the Friends Forever Girls site, there is, of course, a store where you can purchase the Friends Forever Girls Dolls, which as I said come with their own storybooks, and also a jacket or backpack depending on the doll you choose. These dolls, btw, are not the standard 11" plastic deals, but a full 18" tall thanks to sculptor Phil Hauser.

I have, right now, a Natalee doll myself, and she's really cute. My favorite, though, is Marlee, who lives across the street from Natalee, because she likes, "to write in my journal and do art projects," which I can relate to!

There are four dolls available, with two more on the way (I love that one of them is very shy and the other is a klutz, because haven't we all had one of those problems?).

The dolls are bigger than the average, a full 18" tall, and they come with the Butterfly Promises, a series of affirmations girls can take, whose letters spell out the word "Butterfly":

  • 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
