Barbie Hug n' Heal Pet Doctor


With Christmas coming up, I'm definitely on the hunt for fun gifts for my daughters.  We have three sets of grandparents (and one set of great grandparents).  My girls are the ONLY grandchildren at the moment!  Needless to say... they have a well stocked playroom.  This can create a challenge for me when it comes to gift ideas.  What's new...  What are they going to LOVE and actually play with, something they are not going to just put in their playroom and forget about.

It's no secret that I have always been a Barbie Girl.  Growing up, Barbie was my favorite.  I was beyond excited to have not one, but two daughters, and it was like fate because I'd managed to save most of my old Barbie toys from when I was a little girl (and I even had some, that I'd bought second hand from the previous generation, like a super cool vinyl airplane and some awesome furniture and clothes).  My girls are lucky because they have some really neat Barbie stuff... and I'm lucky because they LOVE it and I get to play with it too.  ;)  Girls are so much fun!

When I heard about the Barbie Hug n' Heal Pet Doctor playset, I knew it would be something my girls would enjoy.  We have a cat and a dog ourselves, and they love interactive animal toys.  That this was a Barbie toy as well, was just icing on the cake.



This sweet little pup is so cute and cuddly!  When you pet her head or press her paws she makes puppy sounds, as well as when you use the interactive vet instruments to help her feel better.  Her nose even lights up red when she's not feeling well!  We love her sweet little pink bow, collar, and Barbie tag.


She comes nestled in a pink bag that you can use to carry her and/or the instruments that are included.  You receive a thermometer, a stethoscope, a prescription pad, a syringe, a tissue, and a bottle to feed her with, as well as a bone.  Her paw is bandaged.



There are several different puppies to choose from, but we received the white lab.  Which is great, because we happen to have a real lab too!  My kiddos were in a "don't take my picture!" kind of mood when I pulled this out, so we took a picture with our real puppy.  :)  It's funny, we have a couple of the little pets that move and make sounds, and our dog loves them too.  If she was allowed, she'd claim them for herself to carry around and love on, but I'm always afraid she might chew them.



There is also a Beagle, Maltese, Cocker Spaniel and Retriever that are just as cute!!  

If you'd like to give your aspiring veterinarian a Barbie Hug n' Heal Pet Doctor Kit, you can find them at KidDesigns.com for $29.99!  Free shipping on orders over $50.

New Fragrance - #MariahCareyDreams

Mariah Carey's new fragrance, Mariah Carey Dreams, is available exclusively at Kohl’s in April and Kohls.com today!  I have long been a fan of Mariah and I very much enjoy her fragrances, I can't wait to try this one.

 
In Mariah Carey’s debut number one single, “Vision of Love,” she sang and wrote the lyrics “I’ve realized a dream…” and she has continued to realize and fulfill many dreams in her life and career – she’s the best selling female artist of all time with 18 number one hits (17 are self-penned) and over 200 million records sold worldwide. She is a multiple Grammy award winning artist, successful writer and producer, an acclaimed actress, an empowered business entrepreneur, and loving mother and wife.
 
This spring, Mariah unveils Mariah Carey Dreams, a feminine fragrance that celebrates the many stages of life and evokes the most intimate memories.
 
Mariah Carey Dreams is a sensual feminine fragrance that celebrates the many stages of Mariah’s life. This inviting scent is a blend of floral and gourmand notes symbolic of Mariah’s lifelong journey.

“The process of developing a fragrance is exhilarating and it takes me to another place within my creative self, which is why I enjoyed creating Mariah Carey Dreams. I humbly call myself a ‘perfumer in training’ because I love it so much – almost as much as I love making music. I have the utmost respect for the perfumers because they have the ability to combine a few simple scents into a classic and exciting fragrance.” --Mariah Carey 


Fragrance Notes

· Top: salted caramel apple, star anise, bergamot and toasted almonds

· Mid: honeysuckle, freesia and lily of the valley

· Base: patchouli, Tonka bean and Madagascar vanilla

 
The Mariah Carey Dreams bottle is designed to mirror the curves of a champagne flute, and is a beautiful tribute to Mariah’s festive nature. The butterflies entwined around the champagne flute hold a special meaning for Mariah and her fans. They are a representation of what matters most to her.
