Girls Will Be Girls…
But, don’t always have to be.
Well, as many of you know, I am blessed to have two special little girls in my life. In this house, we are the majority and well–we ARE girly! Kinder Canada has invited me to share with you guys how girls will be girls and boys will be boys and how it fits our life at home.
My girls are girly girls and while they love spa days, tea parties and all that is pink and fluffy, they sure do love their Hot Wheels and toys that are generally for boys!
In this house we think that the gender role and attachment to toys is silly and if my girls loved playing with Hot Wheels AND Barbies, why not?
Growing up myself, I was a tomboy. But, if this doesn’t sound strange or out of this world–a girly tomboy. Meaning, I liked wearing pink and carrying purses and doing my hair–just as much as I enjoyed picking worms and playing kick the can in my tutu!
I’d like to think that my girls both exemplify that and have carried it on. When the girls are being their girliest, you can find them dressed up having a tea party and then building forts.
So, Guess What?
They Are Here!
Barbie and Hot Wheels that is and 1 in 3 eggs has a Limited Edition toy!
To kick off this amazing launch, our friends at KINDER® Canada will be giving away 40 KINDER® Barbie™ Hot Wheels™ Prize Packs (exclusive to Facebook) including Barbie™ and Hot Wheels™ toys as well as a pack of 24 KINDER® SURPRISE® eggs.
Starting on January 10th, for four weeks, you will be able to participate in our KINDER® Barbie™ Hot Wheels™ contest simply by becoming a fan of Kinder Canada and by following the instructions on Facebook.
If you have little princesses in the house, they will be tickled pink to discover new KINDER® SURPRISE® eggs for girls AND to find out about the glam-tastic fashionista helping to introduce this exciting launch in January.

While Kinder Canada celebrating the girls don’t fret: the boys won’t feel left out. They will be thrilled to find limited edition Hot Wheels™ toys inside KINDER® SURPRISE® classic eggs (the traditional KINDER® SURPRISE® eggs we’ve all enjoyed for years).
Something tells us that your living room may soon become a race track!
How Did My Girls Like Them?
They Loved Them!
Of course, they were super excited when our package arrived and quite frankly, anxious to find those limited edition. Gabby loved collecting the Barbies and in this case alone, she got all but one in the set. She loved how fashionable they were! Mimi loved the cars, she likes using her little fingers to put the stickers on the Hot Wheels.
There is something magical when you crack open a Kinder Egg and when they have classic toys like Barbie and Hot Wheels, boys and girls alike will love them.
Whether you have a girly girl, a manly little man or girly tomboys like mine–you are bound to have endless hours of fun with these toys!
Do you think your kiddies would love these Kinder Eggs?
Let me know and head on over to their FB page to win!
Til then, cheers m’deres!
