Win a Moxie Girlz doll

July 7, 2011

I love how dolls can inspire a child’s imagination. The new Moxie Girlzβ„’ Art-titudeβ„’ 3D range allows them to get creative by personalising their doll’s outfit using the coloured markers provided. They can then take a peak through the funky glasses and see the outfits turn 3D, then wash it off and start all over again for hours of creative play. They can also decorate the glasses to give them your own personal look.

Other dolls in the range include Sophina, who is warm, thoughtful and caring and dreams of being a famous songwriter; Lexa who is playful and silly and dreams of being a film director; and Avery who is strong, determined and energetic.

The good news is I have three Moxie Girlzβ„’ to give away. To be in with a chance of winning one, just answer the question below by next Thursday. Usual The Mum Blog competition rules apply.

Q: When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
