Bratz Dolls *Holiday Gift Guide*

I received products for free in exchange for a review. All thoughts/opinions are my own!

As we approach the upcoming Holiday season, Mama's Baby Cupcakes has teamed up with several companies we think would be a great fit to purchase/wear/give to others in the upcoming months. Thanks to each and every sponsor showcased in our Holiday Gift Guide, and if you see the cute button above then you know its Holiday approved!

Founded in 2001, Bratz believe in thinking for themselves, creating the things they dream of, and making every day an absolute adventure. The Bratz love tackling problems creatively, living in the moment, thinking outside the box, and most of all HAVING FUN!

We were sent two Cloe dolls but with different themes and accessories for this review. I liked Cloe the most because she's similar to our girls with blonde hair and blue eyes, but the styles were random. I was surprised when I opened the box to find that each theme fit our two oldest girls' personalities because one is a tomboy and loves being outside and getting dirty, while the other would have sleep overs every day if she could with treats and fun friends. 

I think the accessories with this doll are all so cute. They're realistic just in a tiny version, and I can see lots of fun with a couple dolls together having a sleepover party. Standing about 10.5" tall, her sleepover essentials include toothpaste and brush, eye mask and nail polish, as well as goodies like cookies, popcorn, takeout and an ice cream sundae. It also comes with a overnight bag, a gorgeous second pair of pink and black nighttime fashions, her spirit animal and the iconic Bratz brush. All four dolls comes in this same Sleepover style with their own accessories and fun items. Retail through Walmart's website is $26.88. 

Cloe's hiking essentials include a translucent pink visor, camo-print canteen, backpack, wrist activity tracker and a camera, along with the iconic Bratz brush. There is 3 dolls in this fitness collection and Walmart retails this Cloe doll for $16.88. I like that they have a fitness theme since childhood obesity is a real issue in our world of sugars, pop, and junk food, and she's stylish at the same time so it's a really cute doll. I find it interesting that these two dolls are the same, but their makeup is done differently, perhaps to reflect their different styles depending on the doll's theme?

Bratz over all is a cute set of dolls. You can get online and interact with different videos and even apps you can put on your phone via Apple or Google Play. Most of their products are suggested for ages 5+ due to the small parts they come with, but I can see these going all the way to pre-teens since they're interactive with other the apps and such. You can purchase Bratz pretty much anywhere toys are sold (Walmart, Target, Toys R Us), and prices vary depending on what you're looking for. 

I'm putting these back for Christmas and if you'd like to learn more about Bratz and their products you can find them on their website, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, & Youtube
