National Sister Day
7th of August is National Sister Day. It’s a day to celebrate the special bond between sisters. I am lucky enough to have two wonderful sisters. We did have plenty of arguments when we were younger, but we always have loved each other. I think it is having this special bond with them, that meant that once we had had Freyja, there was no question that we should try and give her a sibling. Obviously, we didn’t care if we had a boy or a girl, but for me, having Emily, meant that like me, she would also have a sister. Just like me and mine, they argue and occasional say that they don’t love each other, but for the majority of the time, they do adore each other.
Like any sisters, Freyja and Emily have their similarities and differences. One thing that they do have in common is that the love playing with dolls. Emily has many “babies”. They get cuddled, fed, carried around and put to bed. Freyja has just received a new BABY born “Sister” doll. It’s very apt that she has it, because BABY born Sister is the big sister to BABY born, and like Freyja she has beautiful long blonde hair. The doll comes with accessories to style her hair with.
BABY born Sister is fully moveable and can also go in the bath. Because she is a big sister she is also able to stand upright on her own. Her cute outfit will also fit her little sister – and just like a lot of “real” sisters, clothes swapping can take place between the two of them.
BABY born Sister also comes with two friendship bracelets – one for herself and another for Freyja to wear, making it perfect for an older child to have.
Freyja likes the fact that BABY born Sister is more grown up than the other babies. She can still be cuddled, put to be and be given a drink, but being able to style her hair makes her a bit more special (and possibly the envy of her little sister).
Not only is BABY born Sister a great toy for Freyja, she is, just like Freyja, a lovely big sister to all the other baby dolls.
