Hey guys, the sun in shining, the kids are finally on summer break and I’m still working, oh well two out of three ain’t bad! Here at Lamb & Bear we were so excited to receive our newest review to keep our little ones busy. I didn’t tell little lady that we had this on the way, so it was a complete surprise for her to open her brand new Shimmer and Sparkle Instaglam dolls.
For those of you that aren’t aware of the brand, think creative fun makeup for little ones to mess with… gone are the days of hiding my viva glam lipstick from child fingers! Now my little one is super creative and I don’t want to hinder that. So, especially during the past few months, we’ve encouraged her to dress how she wants, hair how she wants and makeup how she wants. If that means she’s modelling a princess costume, hair unbrushed with cat ears and barbie pink lipstick and punk eyes so be it. It’s what she likes and there are only so many years where you can get away with that.
Arabella was luckily gifted two – Evie and Luna, both rocking a cute outfit, funky hair and sassy pose. Each of these are sporting a big head- full of secrets (any mean girls fans out there?). Arabella actually fainted, (pretend fainted as she is a true drama queen) when she unlocked them to find makeup, two eyeshadow, two lip glosses, vanity mirror and lipstick! Perfect for kiddos to take around whenever they may have a creative moment.
We did search for the applicator brushes as we were a tad too eagar and ignored the paper guide, but how cute is this- it’s the hair clips! You pull them out and they are lip and eye shadow applicator ends- so cool. They also have a little stand for them for when not in use, though right now that isn’t likely to be in use.
As a plus, the dolls sparkle when using the applicator on them- Evie and Luna looking on fleek! Now these retail for £9.99 and I think that is perfectly acceptable, we will definitely be choosing to buy these for anyone her age and beyond! Honestly how cute would it be to hold a slumber party and each guest receive one of these instead of a party bag – fingers crossed this can become a reality in the not too distant future!
These fab dolls are available from Argos, Smyths and Amazon.
