Call me crazy, but I think that having all the toys I loved as a kid available to our little ones now is a lot of fun. I loved Strawberry Shortcake, My Little Pony and the rest, and I get to share the fun with my girls!
The newest throwback to the 80s is Rainbow Brite, and were my girls excited to get a CD with games and songs to introduce the colorful character. I was given a CD for my girls to enjoy, and a bunch more to share with my friends and readers.
"Rainbow Brite has blasted back onto the doll scene with a vibrant makeover, continuing to delight children with her empowering and imaginative adventures as she spreads her positive messages of courage, kindness, and hope." Georgia (5.5) and Sydney (2.5) loved the Rainbow Brite games on the CD and are still asking to play it. I think Audrey (7.5) is a little old for it, but for ages about 3-6 it is fun.
Rainbow Brite dolls are coming back to stores, as well. I saw one in Target last week, and they should be available in other stores soon. There is also a website featuring Rainbow Brite, where kids can go to get even more of their new friend.
If you would like to win a Rainbow Brite CD for your little princess, leave me a comment about what your favorite toy was as a kid. US addresses only, please. If you are a local, leave me a comment and I will give you a CD when I see you. One non-local commenter will win a CD, and I have 7 more I can give away to local buddies.
Disclosure: I was given a Rainbow Brite CD for free to review, and a pack of CDs to share with my friends and readers. I was not compensated in any other way for this post.
