Is there a mom out there who doesn't have childhood memories involving Barbie?
I remember receiving one doll each Christmas, and some of my favourites were the bride doll with brown hair (a big deal for me), an office Barbie (her pink suit skirt reversed to something sparkly to take her from work to play in a flash) and a figure skating Barbie (to remind me of my months-long experience as a figure skater!)
My daughters now have a huge bin filled with my aunt's dolls from the 70's, mine from the 80's, and now all of theirs...with several decades worth of furniture, outfits and accessories (including a very retro car!) A few years ago, Santa brought a Barbie house, which is definitely one of the most played-in areas of our family room.
When I heard about the new Barbie My Dreams site (and the Barbie the Princess Pearl promotion) I couldn't wait to share it with all of you.
The e-mail I received sums it up best:
"Mom and daughter have been playing Barbie together for over 50 years. With Barbie my Dreams now there's a new way for mom and daughter to play together in an online safe environment. Barbie my Dreams is an online hub of all things Barbie, exclusive to Canadian Barbie fans. Girls can collect their favourite things and showcase their personal style for chances to win great monthly prizes, all in a safe, user-friendly environment."
If you want extra motivation to try out the new site, try this: sign up for an account at Barbie My Dreams and have your child create a board of their favourite Barbie things (moms: this will remind you very much of another site where we like to create boards of our favourites) and then they're eligible to download FREE tickets for the Barbie The Pearl Princess movie screening in one of the following cities (while supplies last):
Mississauga, Etobicoke, Scarborough, Stoney Creek, Ottawa, Edmonton, Calgary, Langley and Halifax.
In addition to that great opportunity, there's a prize pack up for grabs here at This Mom Loves for one Canadian winner which includes a Barbie the Pearl Princess Barbie, and a Barbie the Pearl Princess DVD.
To enter, simply fill out the form below. The only information that is required is your e-mail address, and the rest is all optional for bonus entries. The contest will end on Tuesday, March 4th at 11:59 p.m. Eastern, after which time a winner will be chosen by random number generation.Good luck!
