I've discovered a secret; having kids in our home makes the holidays so much more exciting. Kids' anticipation for Christmas morning is contagious and it's fun to create family traditions that will make memories that kids will remember for years to come. It's no surprise that we are just now creating holiday traditions after almost 8 years of marriage, primarily for our young children. My oldest knows all about Christmas and looks forward to celebrating Baby Jesus' birthday. We also enjoy gift giving, and my 4-year-old daughter has no problem letting us know what gifts are on her wish list. Both my girls (ages 2 & 4) love glitter, dress up, and accessories; my own daughters are the inspiration behind this fun wish list of Christmas gift ideas for girls who love sparkle. Looking for gift ideas? You've come to the right place! The little girl in your life is guaranteed to love one of these fabulous gift ideas for kids!
Just this fall (2016) American Girl released a fun new doll collection, the WellieWishers. This timeless doll collection includes five friends; Ashlyn, Camille, Emerson, Kendall, and Willa, each wearing a darling outfit and coordinating matching Wellie boots.
Emerson loves the spotlight and the spotlight loves her right back. She loves to make her friends smile with funny jokes, original dance routines, and show-stopping songs. This darling American Girl doll measures 14.5 inches, sized just right for younger girls. She has dark-brown eyes and black hair in curly pigtails. Her cute outfit includes a pink and purple striped top that ties on the side, a pink sparkle skirt with purple stars, and pink Wellie boots detailed with a ballet slipper design. WellieWishers are designed to be enjoyed by younger girls, one of my favorite things about these dolls. Their plastic and vinyl bodies are easy to dress and the clothes easily slip on and off. My four year old can dress her own WellieWisher doll. Emerson's Wellie boots are also easy to pop on and off.
WellieWishers Camille and Emerson are such cute dolls!

VTech is known for their interactive and imagination inspiring kids' toys. So it's no surprise that their latest toy release, Twinkle the Magical Unicorn, is fun, flashy, sparkly, musical, and even trots and makes unicorn sounds. The Fairy Prisma MagicPoint character sits on Twinkle's back and interacts with you and the unicorn. Two MagicPoint locations bring Twinkle and the Go! Go! Smart Friends characters to life with fun phrases, lights and more; Twinkle's light-up horn even changes color.
Twinkle the Magical Unicorn is a very interactive toy for kids who love color! Twinkle is a perfect interactive toy for my three kids under the age of 5. My baby can crawl after Twinkle as it "trots" along and my 2 year old is enamored with the sparkling lights and fun musical sounds. Twinkle the Magical Unicorn can walk, play music, and "eat" her golden carrot while she flaps her wings. The princess character Fairy Prisma can ride along on the unicorn's back and interact with other VTech Smart Friends play sets too. Overall I love this toy and appreciate the fun and interactive sibling play time it encourages as all my kids play together.
Twinkle the Magical Unicorn's glittery light-up horn changes color, from orange, to green, to pink, to blue!
