Last week I shared a Spotlight on Mom feature with Elizabeth Cross of Stork Babies with you. If you missed my interview with Elizabeth, please click here to read it now: http://www.inspiredbysavannah.com/2013/08/spotlight-on-mom-elizabeth-cross-of.html.
Due to Savannah getting injured playing with Arabella and needing glue adhesive to close up a laceration of her forehead, I had to push Elizabeth's Feature Friday/Product Review post to today. I have been eagerly waiting to share more about Stork Babies, as my daughter, Savannah and niece love playing with them. And, when Savannah and I spent 2 1/2 hours in the ER the other day, she had her purse filled with three of her favorite Stork Babies. They helped keep her calm, while the ER doctors cleaned up and added the glue to her head. They were also a talking point with the ER staff who saw them, as they, too, thought they were cute, and wished they had some to share with their daughters/granddaughters.
Like I shared back during my Spotlight Mom post, I was given miniature dolls like these when I was little by my great aunt, and still have them today. I packed them away in hopes to one day have a daughter of my own and be able to pass down these dolls to her, and share how I received them from my great aunt, and how much she had meant to me. Elizabeth graciously sent me an assortment of her current Italian Stork Babies for the girls to review. And, as soon as they saw me taking the dolls out of their boxes to look at them, the girls couldn't wait to also take a closer look and hold them. Here are some photos I took of Savannah and Arabella playing with their new Stork Babies:
So, what makes the Stork Babies so unique, besides being cute miniature dolls?
What makes Stork Babies Unique?
"Stork Babies all come with their own unique names, place of origin, fun facts and empowering sayings. Our hope is that parents take the time and talk to their children about the empowering and/or positive saying that comes with the doll. We know parents are busy, but it is so important that your little ones feel good about themselves. If you can, spend a few quality minutes and talk about how important it is to believe in yourself, your talents and dreams. Little ones are so impressionable at this age and significant images of themselves can be formed. This is the time we must share how important it is to love ourselves for who we are and those around us!!"
Even though my daughter Savannah is too young to understand the empowering saying and fun facts that are unique to each of the current Italian Collection Stork Babies, my niece found them interesting and loved learning more about each doll. While playing with Savannah, she would share these fun facts. For young girls, these Stork Babies are not only fun to play with, but are a great way to remind girls to believe in themselves, and let them know that they are unique, and all their personal qualities make them who they are and special.
I am happy I stumbled across the Stork Babies website and was able to interview and share a Spotlight on Mom feature with Elizabeth Cross with you all. And, with the holidays and fall birthdays right around the corner, these cute miniature dolls would make for a great gift to share with that special girl in your life. Make sure you keep an eye out, as Elizabeth is adding a new Spanish Stork Babies Collection to her current product offering, along with fun mini-accessories for the Stork Babies, like high chairs, cribs and strollers.
Personally, I can't wait to see the mini-accessories. And, I will be picking up the Spanish Collection Stork Babies to share with my girls, who are part Latina.
