Design A Friend Doll Review And Giveaway

Still wondering what gifts to get for the festive season? Well look no further for the perfect gift for little fashionistas 🙂

The girls were recently sent a “Design a Friend” Doll and they are besotted, to say the least. She goes everywhere with them.

I never thought I would have “girly girls”, being a boy mom for so long, I hardly even know how to plait hair, let alone have daughters that love dolls, tea parties and all things pink. Funny how life works because my daughters ask to wear pretty dresses everyday, and their toys of choice? Any doll or baby.

We got “Candy” – she’s a gamer, just like my daughters brothers 🙂 As her name suggests she’s as sweet as can be but when it comes to gaming she’s as competitive as they come.  Each “Design a Friend” doll has their own special character, with a unique outfit and special charm bracelet.

Candy Girl measures 46cm tall, I love that she is so big, the girls “walk” with her and it really does make her feel like a “best friend”.

Candy wears the cutest pink ‘Gamer At Heart’ sweatshirt, a skater skirt, trainers with satin laces & super cute unicorn gamer headphones, can we make these in real life child sizes please?

She has blue eyes that close when lying down & super silky pink hair for styling in the latest trends. A super soft, huggable body for lots of cuddles, but can also raise her arms and legs in life like positions. Design A Friend dolls celebrate childhood, encourages imaginative play and inspires children to be themselves.

Designed for the love of fashion, every Design-a-Friend doll comes dressed in on-trend, fashion quality outfits so you can dress her, style her, change her outfits as you do every day. A little girl’s dream.

To celebrate the Festive Season, I’ll be giving away 1 x Design A Friend Doll (Candy) and 1 x Design A Friend Doughnut Time Pyjamas.

  15. This would be amazing as a gift for my niece, who is just such an amazing little girl. At her young age of 7, she’s been through so much. From being a premature baby and spending days and nights in hospital, it’s been tough on our little fighter. Last year, her mum was expecting her little sister and sadly she passed away just a month in NICU and my niece ? ? was devastated.

  21. My nephew lost his little sister , 7 months ago. Baby saajeda was only 5 months. He was so attached to her n a big brother he loved her so much. He would feed her n even dress her . Every morning before he left for school he would kiss n hug her n when back home first thing he would hug n greet saajeda . He misses her so much he is so small himself n my heart just pains to see him these days. A very sad n depressed child only 8 yrs old n he looks like he got lifes burdens on him ? would be amazing to win this doll for him n help him heal.

  22. Growing up I was beyond obsessed with dolls! Then I had my own real life doll who I get to dress and treasure every day. Now she loves her dolls even more than I do. She would love and cherish this beautiful doll so much! Good luck everyone x
