Groovy Girls Cali Candy Cane doll from Manhattan Toy: Review and Giveaway {2011 Holiday Gift Guide}

When it comes to purchasing holiday toys for girls, you really can’t go wrong with a doll!

This is no different with my daughter, who often has a doll of some sort on her gift wishlist each birthday and Christmas!  Big or small, soft or hard, talking or crying, eyes open or closed…she loves them all.

You can imagine her joy when she saw the Groovy Girls Cali Candy Cane doll from Manhattan Toy!

Cali Candy Cane is as sweet as they come. Her velvet red dress and green and white striped stockings reveal her tasteful holiday personality. Her hair is full of candy cane colors with a mixture of light blonde and red highlights. Cali Candy Cane is as festive as they come, from her stocking cap to her cute green handbag.

Brooke loves this doll! Cali Candy Cane is beautiful with her bright green eyes and warm smile, and exudes holiday spirit!  She is soft and squishy from the top of her head down to her feet, making her the perfect travel and sleeping buddy.  Brooke especially loves Cali Candy Cane’s soft, velvety holiday dress and wishes she had one just like it for herself!

I love that the outfit can be removed, making it interchangeable with other Groovy Girl dolls and outfits.  As a mom I appreciate when the toys my kids have can be interchangeable; This means more, longer lasting play for my kids who-like most kids- tend to get tired of the same old boring thing.  As this toy is able to be “changed” it’s made it even more exciting for my daughter, who is already anxious to get another Groovy Girl doll.  She has looked on the Manhattan Toy site and already has a few more picked out that she wants!

You can get this adorable doll, as well as tons of other great toys from Manhattan Toy!
