We featured The Beatrix Girls in our 2014 Holiday Gift Guide because my daughter absolutely loves these dolls. They're not only stylish with great hair, unusually large heads, and fun features. But they are also a rock band with their own music that AK (Attic Kid) will listen to over and over again.
In case you're not familiar with them, here's a little info. about The Beatrix Girls:
Who are The Beatrix Girls?
The Beatrix Girls are an accomplished pop-star band with real music that young girls are sure to
adore, and they just happen to be beautiful 12” dolls. They’re young, they’re real, they’re spunky, and they are relatable to young girls. These 12” dolls not only interact in the real life-sized human world, but they produce real music, real hits, and real sales!
The Beatrix Girls dolls are very highly stylized and uniquely designed to break the mold of 50 years of “me too” dolls. They are masterfully sculpted in a unique angular design style. Their proportions are very differentiated with huge heads, LOTS of beautiful flowing hair, and very large expressive eyes, adding up to dolls that are not only original but also very beautiful.
Lark was AK's favorite until we were recently sent Chantal. Now it's a toss-up between the two as to who is her favorite.
Chantal is from Montreal Canada and speaks French and English. She plays the keyboard, sings, is a hard-worker and likes the classic styles from the 1950's.
The deluxe doll comes with a doll stand and her keyboard. Chantal has pretty brown eyes, a fun up-do, and a cute sparkly dress paired with a necklace and heels.
I highly recommend getting the deluxe version of the doll. They are rock stars after all, so it's important for them to have their instrument. If you can't find the deluxe doll in stores, you can find the instruments on Amazon and purchase them separately. Plus the doll stand is handy to pose the doll behind the instrument while role-playing with the other members of the band. It's been a lot of fun for AK to crank up the Beatrix Girls music and pretending that Chantal is playing and singing along!
Your girls are sure to adore these dolls that teach about the values of empowerment, friendship, hard work and determination. And moms will like them too because of their positive message encouraging girls to have big dreams, reach for success, and believe in yourself.
