Go! Go! Sports Girls Review and Giveaway

One of my favorite aspects of Toy Fair 2013 was being introduced to mompreneur brands and one of those was Go! Go! Sports Girls created by Jodi Norgaard.

Jodi and I spoke about how she was inspired to create her business, Dream Big Toy Company to promote self-appreciation and the benefits of daily exercise, healthy eating and sleeping habits, self-esteem and overall healthy life-skills for girls ages 3-12. I shared how I come from an avid sports family as well as my all-female school heritage from 8th grade through college which inspired me to become a confident woman and excel not just in academics but sports as well. 

Here's what I like most about the award winning Go! Go! Sports Girls:

  • They represent a variety of sports - sports like basketball, volleyball and soccer are available as well others such as golf, swimming and dance (personally, I'd love to see a lacrosse girl too - one of the sports I played in school!) 
  • They come in various skin tones - one of the first things I noticed about the display at Toy Fair was all the wonderful shades that were available
  • They're not just pink - the uniforms are in several appealing colors 
  • The attention to detail - the girls come with appropriate and removable accessories which go in a mini-backpack and come with a towel and there is positive secret messaging on the dolls' tummies:

While my Lil Love Bird adores her share of princesses, I appreciate that there is an option for her to have an athletic doll that will help inspire confidence and self-esteem and the fact that Taye is chocolatey is awesome - it's great that Nia sees dolls that look her! I would've loved to have a Go! Go! Sports Girl growing up, and I was thrilled when Jodi gave me one to bring home to Nia!

Would you like a Go! Go! Sports Girl for the little budding athlete in your life? Well I'm giving one away to one reader!

The giveaway ends Thursday, April 11 with the winner announced Friday, April 12 (open to U.S. residents only).
