Moxie Dolls! Giveaway – 3 Dolls!

Please Share

I'm going to come clean here:

When I first saw "Moxie Dolls", I shuddered. I think it was the use of "z" in "girlz", I think it was the bright packaging. I'm not sure. I think it was the "z".

 

But whatever it was, it was a classic case of prejudice – I hadn't even really looked at the dolls, nor had I visted their website. Check it out – walk over there for me a minute: MOXIE GIRLZ

 

Their slogans: be true * be you!

and

"Every girl has the strength to do something amazing. Anything is possible as long as you stay true to yourself and never give up on your dreams!"

 

These dolls are not Barbie. I like them, I like their message, I like pretty much everything about them.

Check this out:

Yes! A doll with CANCER! She is from the True Hope series – how awesome is that.

Rock on, Moxie.

*****

They sent 3 dolls to my own Moxie and they were a HUGE hit in this house. With my boy Micah, too: he calls them "action figures" and highly enjoys having the perform action stunts like jump out of his helicopter. His favorite is Sportz Doll Avery – because he uses her ribbons (from the gymnastics) as Wonder Woman lassos. Ha. Ha. Ha.

 

Moxie herself loves the bath time Sophina best. It's cute – she has this skirt thing that floats her in the water, with two little openings on each side of the skirt to place her water kitty and her soap bubbles (that you can pull out and blow real bubbles with). Moxie loves all that and she loves playing with her hair.

What is it anyway with little girls and doll hair? I remember being obsessed with that, too.

Were you?

The dolls all have flat feet – no Barbie high-heel arches. The bodies of the dolls are not twisted into some unnatural position, or have startling doll-boobs. With the exception of their big eyes and cosmetically-enhanced faces, they are about as real-life as a doll can get.

 

Which is another thing that I like about them.

  2. Adorable!  I'm always intrigued by them when I see them in the store.  What I look for in a doll these days is different than when Sammi was littler.  Now I want dolls that are *interesting* to look at and to play with.  She's got enough of the baby doll dolls, and a few Barbies as well, but I've been scouting other options for her lately.

    • I appreciate dolls that are a little more realistic than Barbie… and a doll with cancer could really resonate with sick children.

  5. I look for something colorful and fun looking. Clothes, what they come with. If they look like it's something my daughter would play with.

    I haven't purchased a doll since the 1980's cabbage patch craze.  I was entering this in hopes of winning one to send to one of my friends from High School who has just started battling cancer.  she whent ahead and shaved her head after her first chemo treatment.  I thought that sending her the Moxie doll would out a smile on her face.
