HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE – Day 17 : Strawberry Shortcake & Baby Alive Review + Day Planner Giveaway

Every little girl loves Strawberry Shortcake. I loved her when I was a little girl, and now my little girl loves her. Today I’m reviewing the Strawberry Shortcake Berry Bitty Market, which is an add-on for your Strawberry Shortcake doll and her friends. They all love to Take a trip to the BERRY BITTY MARKET for a sweet treat or something good to eat! Your child’s imagination will find there’s so much to do at the BERRY BITTY MARKET, and your STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE doll is ready to go! There’s “food” to shop for that you can put in the grocery bags, bills to pay, letters to mail, a dress and hat to wear and a “credit card” to pay for it all. When your little girl presses the button she’ll hear STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE and fun sounds. This item is on sale through Amazon for $29.99 (Reg. $39.99). Prices do change often, so if you see a good sale price, jump on it.

The Playset comes with doll with dress and hat and more than 30 accessories.


I’m also reviewing a new Baby Alive Crib Life Doll. MAKAYLA SONG is a Crib Life Crew Member and she was born awesome. She likes making a difference, singing, and playing the guitar. This sweet, caring girl comes dressed to play with a colorful outfit and adorable pigtails. A key chain with a charm is included and it has a unique code that gives you access to a CRIB LIFE character in her online world. You can watch videos, play games and even create your own “crib”. MAKAYLA SONG comes with a key chain, charm, online code, and mini book. MAKAYLA SONG comes ready to play in an adorable dress and bunchy pigtails. Even if you can’t bring her with you, a colorful doll charm in her likeness will help keep her close to your heart. Baby Alive Crib Life Dolls are recommended for ages 5+ because they do include small parts. Makayla can be purchased via Amazon on sale for $12.99 (Reg. $16.99)
