Holiday Gift Guide - Best Pals Review and Giveaway


Back in 1949 two little girls were given handmade dolls that were created with love by their mom and nana. These dolls became their "best pals" and made such an impact on their childhood that these two little girls, Kathy and Janet Lennon, grew up and wanted to share them with children everywhere!

I was fortunate enough to receive the Kathy and Janet dolls for review. These dolls are exact replicas of the Lennon sisters dolls. Each one comes dressed in a vintage dress and wears a beaded bracelet that says "Best Pals." Along with the dolls came a CD titled Best Pals Sing Together. This CD features several classic children's songs along with two brand new original songs!

The dolls also came with a very cool tea set. This tea set is made of tin and has a complete setting for 4. It comes in an adorable carrying case and is perfect to take on picnics in the park or backyard.

I love the style of all the products offered through Best Pals. Everything is made to look vintage. There are no bells and whistles, no sounds or flashing lights. Just good old fashioned fun that leaves tons of room for imagination.

Along with the original dolls, you can also find a few other dolls including Danny, who is named after the Lennon sisters' first brother. You can also find accessories, paper dolls, other cd's and more on their official website. You can purchase everything through the website or check the store locator to see what stores near you carry these create dolls!

Check it out! These dolls and accessories would make great holiday gifts!
