Holiday Outfits from Zubels

It's the time of year when you are running from even to event with your little ones in tow. You want them to look cute, but they want to be comfortable. And who can blame them?

Playing Dress Up with Great Pretenders

My daughter is a huge fan of playing pretend, dressing up, and using her imagination. For the past few years her "dress up wardrobe" has expended. In fact, when we organized the play room, I decided to buy a child's size clothing rack for all of her play clothes. I have worked with Great Pretenders for the past two years on my Holiday Gift Guide. And each when they contact me, I am so excited to see their new quality, products at great prices.

Great Pretenders Dress Up Costumes

The Great Pretenders story is one that starts like many. Once upon a time, there was a mom troubled by the lack fun and imaginative toys for her children. Baffled by this, she set out on her ambitious journey to come up with creative, pretend-play toys that would light up any child's imagination. Fast forward; her endeavors transcended into a vastly successful dress-up and costume business which manufactures award-winning toys – an innovative leader in the pretend-play market for children.

I received free products in order to host the Bright Starts sponsored Play Date. The opinions expressed here are my own.

Baby and toddler play dates are so much fun. Not only do the little ones get to play together, but the moms get some socialization too. ;) I had the opportunity to host a Bright Starts Little League of Laughers play date for my children and their little friends. Bright Starts, a toy brand committed to smiles, giggles and happy babies, provided me with these fun toys below for our play date.

Our group consists mostly of my kids and my sister-in-law's kiddos, but we do have a few mutual friends and we all like to get together whenever we can. Which was harder this time of year, but it was nice that we were able to make it work. I love the items we received from Bright Starts.
