Empower Children in Their Uniqueness With These Toys
What a breath of fresh air to see dolls that are made to empower children in their uniqueness – dolls that are free of unrealistic body structure and makeup, each doll is designed based on the average nine years old’s body shape and wears modest clothing.
Whimpers and whines coming from my four-year-old often lead to me commenting, “It is so tough being four, isn’t it?”. I usually say it pretty sarcastically but really, it IS tough being four… and five… and six… and thirty-six! Regardless of your age, the pressures of life are real to you. Although my daughter isn’t dealing with “big” stressors like financial decisions, medical treatments, or parenting issues…. for her, sleeping in a dark room all by herself or getting picked on by kids at school are HUGE stressors! Life IS hard… even for a four year old!
You walk in your daughter’s bedroom to find her playing with her dolls. A flood of memories thinking back to being a little girl yourself brings back happy memories. That is until you notice the high heels, makeup, jewelry, skimpy clothing on their dolls. The story line your daughter is acting out is more of a teenage sounding story line. The warm fuzzies have now just turned to a burning feeling deep in your soul.
