The Benefits of Exercise During Pregnancy

Experts agree – regular exercise can go a long way during pregnancy. Why, you ask? Here are a few great reasons to stay active in the coming months.

Giveaway & Review: The Beatrix Girls

The Beatrix Girls

The Beatrix Girls are dolls, but so much more than that. Each of the four girl are styled in fashionable clothing and are musicians in the fictional Beatrix Girls band.  They have distinct personality traits and styles that separate them from one another.

I was lucky enough to receive the Chantal doll through an online Twitter giveaway. The doll is coincidentally from Canada (French Canadian) and is the keyboard player of The Beatrix Girls. Her unique personality is described as mellow and level headed but every now and then she gets bent out of shape. She loves marzipan, french onion soup, scented candles and snails.

Ava - The Beatrix GirlsThe unique design of The Beatrix Girls is what really sets them apart from other dolls. The dolls are styled nicely with an emphasis on the head area which is bigger than most dolls. I love how the joints on the arms and legs can be moved in different directions, unlike most dolls.

The Beatrix Girls become real pop stars to the little girls that love them. From singing, instrument playing and writing of music these girls do it all. The Beatrix Girls produce real music. Their official website adds new videos, photo shoots and songs of the group regularly. The songs can be downloaded along with the lyrics.

Ava seems to love her doll, despite the cranky look above that is caused by TEETHING. She just started to take an interest in  dolls, so the Chantal doll is now a part of her  small doll collection.
