MGA Entertainment. Whether parents are looking to engage their youngsters in different languages, highlight the importance of music to young girls, or to encourage creative play through magical worlds, this season, there is a toy for every child.
The variety of toys available from MGA Entertainment are pretty amazing and include two brands that my girls absolutely adore! When my 7 year old was only 3, she saw Bratz Dolls for the first time and was instantly enamoured by them! They have been one of her favourite dolls ever since so she was really excited when she saw “the girls” (as she calls her dolls) in the new Bratz Rock collection! I couldn’t open the dolls up fast enough for her! All 4 girls – Sasha, Jasmine, Chloe and Jade – each come with their own musical instruments, accessories (including jewelry, footwear and hair brushes) and amazingly hip wardrobe! She loved the fact that the dolls’ hair glows in the dark, that each girl has her own instrument and that she can switch some of the clothing to make each outfit unique. She was also impressed that each doll came with a pair of soft plastic bracelets because she was able to add them to her bracelet collection! Her favourites are Chloe (with her long blonde hair, she think she looks like Chloe!) and Jade (she likes Jade’s headset and her keyboard).

In contrast to the Bratz Rock dolls, my littlest girl was equally excited when she saw the Little Tikes DiscoverSounds Alarm Clock! She loves the fact that the Alarm Clock plays “London Bridge” as she likes to get up and dance to the music! The fact that the clock also counts in English, French and Spanish also intrigues her – she is intent on listening to the numbers in Spanish and repeating them back! She also likes the fact that she can she can move the hands on the clock and push the buttons (I find, that this age, she gets frustrated really easily if anything she wants to use includes small buttons because she wants to do things for herself). The Little Tikes DiscoverSounds Alarm Clock has obviously been carefully made for children her age and, as a result, she carries it around with her all the time!
Bratz Rock dolls are available at major retailers across Canada at a suggested retail price of $19.99. The Little Tikes DiscoverSounds Alarm Clock is available at Walmart and Zellers stores across Canada at a suggested retail price of $12.99.
