Like most little girls, E loves playing with dolls! She was thrilled when we received the invitation to attend an Italian themed Journey Girls event at the Toys“R”Us in Times Square where we celebrated the 5th anniversary of Journey Girls and the new Italy-inspired collection which will debut this September.
Journey Girls are a collection of 18-inch dolls with a collective backstory and are available exclusively at Toys“R”Us. What began as a collection of four dolls has expanded to a selection of seven dolls and hundreds of mix-and-match clothing options and accessories! In the last five years, Journey Girls characters have gone on worldwide adventures spanning 20,000 miles around the globe, from London to Paris and now Italy, adding to their individual and collective backstory!
E had the opportunity to choose her own Journey Girls doll out of Chavonne, the multi talented performer; Callie, an aspiring dancer; Dana, the animal lover; Kelsey, who seeks out exciting new adventures; Kyla, an amazing artist; Meredith, the energetic team athlete; and Mikaella, the latest addition to the collection who loves cooking and baking.
E chose with Chavonne! Her outfit features a black and white striped top under a vibrant pink petite coat and trendy floral pants that match her super cute navy slip-on shoes. All of the dolls clothing is age appropriate and items you might find when shopping for your own daughter (or even yourself)!
E was able to pick out out some pajamas for Chavonne and one of the lovely ladies helping out at the event assisted E in changing the doll into them!
During the Journey Girls Event, we ate Italian inspired food and the children in attendance had the opportunity to participate in different activities including topping their own cannolis with different toppings. This was clearly one of E’s favorite activities!
As a parent, I love how the dolls encourage and inspire children to take their own journey and Chavonne has been on many trips with our family including the train ride we took when we first brought her home!
Chavonne and her friends Kyla, Dana, Kelsey, Calie, Maredith and Mikaella will be available for $39.99 each, exclusively at Toys“R”Us stores nationwide and online at Toysrus.com/JourneyGirls starting this September! New Journey Girls accessories, including a Best in Class School Set, Birthday Celebration Set and Pet Grooming Set, which will debut this fall as well!
