Just so we’re clear, I did receive product from Go! Go! Sports Girls to facilitate this post, but all opinions, ideas, and photos are entirely my own and I’m a firm believer in the message behind this product.
Let’s just put this out there, I’m a girl, I have four girls of my own, and I know that girls are “pretty”. We’re supposed to be “pretty”. That’s all, right? Not in this house. Sure, pretty is a word we use, but we don’t base our existence on the fact that we’re pretty. Pretty isn’t the be all, end all of anything. Girls are strong. Girls are smart. Girls can and should be successful in life. But often that message is lost with our young girls because of the messaging out there these days. Even the toys just tell our daughters that pretty is enough. It’s not and that’s where Go! Go! Sports Girls come in.
Dream Big Toy Company™ created Go! Go! Sports Girls™ as a fun and educational way to promote self-appreciation and the benefits of daily exercise, healthy eating and sleeping habits, self-esteem, and overall healthy life-skills for girls ages 3-12. Go! Go! Sports Girls™ are age and size appropriate. They do not encourage an older or overly mature image. The image is innocent with a subtle yet strong message – appreciate and be true to yourself! The dolls are currently available at retailers nationwide as well as through their online store.
Since my Bug loves to swim, obviously we chose Swimming Suzi and Bug loves the story and the message. It empowers her to use her love of swimming to succeed in life. Yes, I said succeed in life. The books share how your daughter can use her love of swimming, or sports in general, to find strengths in themselves that they can take with them into adulthood to help them succeed. Pretty cool, right? So if your daughter loves soccer, gymnastics, dance, running, cheerleading, or obviously swimming, they’ve got a gift set for you too! There hasn’t been a better toy to empower girls since my older girls were little (in my humble opinion) than this fun doll and book gift set.
I listened to Bug read to Suzi earlier and I was impressed with her love of reading, the progress she’s made in the reading arena, and the message this book, this product, had to offer. If you want to encourage your daughters to read, to succeed in life, this is definitely a product you’ll want to check out. It’s Bug approved and that should mean something since my hot mess of a holy-jean-wearing baby doesn’t approve of much.
