Growing up with a very young mom with little money, I wasn’t exactly rocking the latest technology like my kids do now. Well, that and it was the 80s, so cassette tapes were all the rage – not exactly iPad exciting, but I digress… What I am trying to say is, one of my favorite things to play with as a little girl was my collection of paper dolls. I keep them steadfastly in a large manila envelope when I wasn’t playing with them so that they would be safe and loved when my Highlights magazine would come and would sometimes have new clothes for my dolls. That is why I was so excited to get the Penny Paperheart Deluxe paper doll house and Kindness Kit for review.
What did I think of the Penny Paperheart Paper Doll set?
I was somewhat nervous to bring the paper doll set to the girls – I’m not going to lie, I was worried what they would think considering they love their electronics so much. But once I pulled out set and read Penny’s book to them that comes with it – those worries were gone! The girls got into the fun and imagination of creating a combo 2D-3D world with their new paper doll set up!
This deluxe set up is so much fun because not only does it come with a Penny Paperheart paper doll, but also a page of clothes for her and a page of accessories, too! The box is shaped like a house and has a little storage drawer to put everything away when they kids are done playing which just adds to the fun! This set also comes with an adorable Penny Paperheart plush, which the girls loved and I find that she is a daily reminder to be kind and good like Penny!
Which leads me to the Kindness Kit! Penny Paperheart is a paper doll on a mission to be kind! She encourages those around her to share daily kindness and love to those around you – may that be friends, family or even strangers. In this Kindness Kit, you receive an assortment of cards that are perfect for spreading kindness to everyone. Some even have holes punched in so you can add something fun – a lollipop, a pencil or anything else that you can think to include! The girls have been jazzed up to complete their Random Acts of Kindness and have even talked about making more Kindness Cards once these are all used up!
If you are looking for a low-key but fun (and non-electronic!) toy that will not only encourage imagination play, but also promote kindness and goodness – I highly recommend you pop into a Hallmark store and pick up a Penny Paperheart set!
