Manhattan Toy Groovy Girls Cali Candy Cane Review and Giveaway

-Part of our Holiday Gift Guide 2012-
Are toys on your children's holiday list this year? Of course they are! Why rush to the big box stores and buy the same toy as everyone else, when you can head to a speciality or fine department store and find something unique.

Manhattan Toy was founded in 1979 as a company who would use new concepts in toy design. They strive for all of their products to be original, have developmental value, be safe, and be durable. All of their products, from the newest to the oldest, are designed to inspire and delight both children and adults. Manhattan Toy includes a variety of brands including-Whoozit, Dr. Seuss, Parents, Automoblox, and Groovy Girls. Manhattan Toy products can be found in fine department and specialty stores and also through their website. They continue to introduce hundreds of new toys each year while offering many original toys as well.
I worked with Amanda from Manhattan Toy for our Holiday Gift Guide review of one of their products. Amanda provided me plenty of information about Manhattan Toy and the item we would be reviewing. She was very friendly, helpful, and offered great customer service.
Our package from Manhattan Toy has arrived!
 "What is in this thing?"
 "A Christmas Baby!"
This Christmas baby is actually a Groovy Girl named Cali Candy Cane.
 What are Groovy Girls?
Groovy Girls are a family of soft fashion dolls and accessories, first introduced in 1998, that were created to inspire girls to celebrate style, diversity, and friendship. Priced around $20, Groovy Girls have over 20 dolls with unique outfits, hairstyles, and skin tone.
Who is Cali Candy Cane?
Cali Candy Cane is a holiday themed Groovy Girl who is as sweet as they come. She is for ages 3+, retails for $20, and measures 3"L x 2"W x 13"H. She is wearing a red velvet dress with a green bow and layered over green and white striped leggings with silver and red shoes. Her hair is a mix of blonde and red, perfect for a candy cane, and topped with a red Santa hat. She is also carrying a festive green handbag.

Scarlett's Interview about her Groovy Girl-Cali Candy Cane:

Cali Candy Cane has been a new favorite doll for Scarlett. She is a great size for carrying around, riding in the car, or snuggling in the bed. She is soft and comfortable for Scarlett to love on. Cali is colorful and bright and perfect for the holidays.
Beckett has a few of the Automoblox Cars but he would love this:
Both kids love taking shower and would stay in one all day, they are needing some new bath toys, these would be really fun:
