Why do all Barbie dolls have girls wanting to look perfect? And who is to say that the Barbie look is the “perfect” look? As a Mom I am tired of Barbie dolls and the stereotypes they reinforce. The problem is, girls like to play with dolls, so what is a Mom to do?
OOTW Dolls from Blip Toys to The Rescue
I did some searching online for dolls for girls that celebrate being different and care about more than just good lucks. My search led me to the O.O.T.W. Dolls from Blip Toys. The OOTW Girls look really funky, fun and different.
I found a very good review of OOTW Dolls and also an excellent video that shows two of the dolls in action. Check out this video –
The two dolls in the video are Techno and Vizi. I really like how different looking they are. This will teach our girls that there is no one perfect way to look. Everyone can look different and be different and still be beautiful. I have not checked out the online world yet – called Girlaxy, but it has a great name.
I will be buying the OOTW Dolls and see if my girls love it as much as I do!
It may be 95 degrees outside, but that doesn’t stop toy companies from thinking about Christmas. It is right around now that the toy companies will start to release their holiday toys. Every company is hoping to have the hot holiday toys for the 2012 season.
Air Hogs Ups the R/C Ante
Air Hogs is looking to make waves this year by offering some R/C toys with very advanced technology. Recently we saw this video for the Air Hogs Battle Tracker –
It looks very cool from the video. A helicopter that fires discs and a robotic battle turret that fights back. I could see any boy over 10 loving the Air Hogs Battle Tracker. I am just a little beyond 10 🙂 and I loved playing the Air Hogs Batte Tracker
Next up from Air Hogs is the Hover Assault call/helicopter. Another really fun toy from Air Hogs. The Hoover Assault can drive like a car, hop like a rabbit and fly like an eagle. It is a little hard to expain how it all works, so let’s role the video
The Hover Assault is great fun to play with, but it does take some time to master the controls.
Please check back soon as we hope to have our own pre-release reviews done as quickly as possible.
