Call Me Chloe Interactive Doll

|
As children learn and develop they will begin to show a preference to certain types of play and expression. My little girl loves building towers, designing villages for her fairies as well as taking her dolls on adventures outside and baking lots of cakes for her tea parties. So we know what she likes and always provide specific to encourage play and her imagination. 


Most parents will know that children are curious and this often leads to many opportunities to learn more about the world around them. There are so many wonderfully creative toys available that will aid a child in their development from improving problem solving and cognitive skills to boosting self expression and critical thinking. Through play, children are gaining confidence, learning and acquiring skills that will prepare them further as they develop. 

And while there are many toys that will enhance their developmental skills, certain toys tend to lose their novelty quickly. The best kind of toys are the ones that encourage role play and language development, but also be toys that a child will choose again and again. 


Dolls and prams have always been my daughter first choice when it comes to play time. While traditional gender roles dictate that dolls are a toy mainly for girls, playing with dolls can provide important growth for children regardless of their gender. Children can use their imagination to practice talking as they have one-sided conversations with their dolls, and also learning the names of body parts, clothing items and more complicated concepts such as feelings.

We got our daughter her very first dolly when she was small and five years on and she still carries that same dolly everywhere with her. When given the opportunity she loves to dress her up to pop in her prams for a walk or dragged her along on our adventures in the care. So when there was an opportunity for her to play with a brand new Call Me Chloe doll I knew she would jump at the chance. 

Meet Call Me Chloe

Most children today are great with technology and pretty accustomed to seeing mobile phones. They are more familiar with technology than with any other generation and often know how to use tablets and mobiles better than their parents and grandparents! So it comes to no surprises that children love to imitate everything we do and play with our mobile phones.


While toy mobile phones are not a new thing as technology moves on, toy makers adapt to offer items that reflect the world around us. Call Me Chloe is a life-like interactive doll that comes with her very own phone as well a matching smartphone for a little one. It not something that we have ever seen before but it's a great way to encourage and engage a child's imagination as well as helping to develop and encourage communication, and language skills.


Call Me Chloe comes with true to life expressions and movements designed to encourage your child to continue playing without boredom. With over 30 different phrases about different topics, she provides the right amount of interaction to encourage interest and curiosity. Chloe can also move her arm to her eat and move her mouth for a realistic effect making her a doll that any child would love and treasure. 

Super Cool and Stylish

Chole comes with a complete with a super cool denim style pinafore dress covered in three patches, featuring an emoji symbol with heart eyes, a rainbow and a love heart. Underneath she wears a plain white t-shirt with a pink trim and she comes with removeable pink and blue mouse design shoes. So inspired by Chloe and her outfit choice my daughter thought that it would be a great idea to go and change into a similar outfit so that they could twin it together. It's the cutest, right?


Chloe also had long blonde hair that is swept up to the side by a bright rainbow hair bow. At the moment my daughter has become fascinated by styling hair so Chloe and her long blonde hair will give her the opportunity to enhance those hairdressing skills. Inside the box there are a host of accessories but this doll stands at 18" so you will be able to use compatible doll clothes and accessories to play around with her style. 


Chloe Loves to Talk

Chloe just loves to talk, so she really is the perfect doll for my little chatterbox as they can talk for hours and hours. With a press of a button you can actually give Chloe a call where her phone will ring and she will move her arm to put it to her ear and really talk to you. As Chloe has life-like features her mouth and lips move as she talks to really add to the effect making it ever more realistic. 


Amazing Interactive Features

Call Me Chole comes with her own mobile but inside the box you will find an exact replica for your little one. My daughter was so excited to see that there was an interactive mobile phone for her too. There are nine different icons on the phone so you can choose a topic to talk about. You can choose from topics like the weather, shopping, friendship, birthdays, music, travel to sleep, games and food. 


There are over 30 different phrases that Chloe can say across the different topics. Once you have finished talking with Chloe she will then prompt you to choose another topic to talk about. If you don't press another button and engage with Chloe, she will politely hang up. If you accidentally leave her on, she will politely remind you that she is still there and wants to talk. 



What Mimi Rose Thought of Chloe

My daughter loves Chloe! She has the ultimate best friend and can take her anywhere for endless talking time about their favourite topic of shopping and music. Chloe has been for rides in the car, walks in the pram and explored adventures to the beach already. My daughter loves Chloe and all her amazing interactive features. It's not like any other toy and she loves the fact that she can REALLY talk to Chloe about anything - they could talk for hours. 


Call Me Chloe is a beautifully made doll that has lots of attention to detail with her realistic lips and mouth and her super cool outfit to her choice in accessories and long blonde hair. There are a host of different outfits and accessories that you can choose from, all sold separately. Call Me Chloe is an ideal birthday or Christmas present for girls and boys aged 5 years and over who love interactive dolls, mobile phones and role playing games.

Mess Free Fun with Little Brian Paint Sticks and Face Paints

|
The best way to keep my little one occupied and engaged with anything is to always make it fun. The more creative the better. Like most families, we have been spending more time together at home and it has been so much fun and this adventure will become some of the most cherished memories we will have. But as we are coming towards the end of it all it seems to be getting harder and harder to think of creative ideas that are going to keep her occupied.


We love getting the craft box out and it has been amazing throughout this strange time, well apart from the clean up. But let's be honest most of us don't have the time or energy to go full on paint, glue sticks, sequins and glitter every single day. But that doesn't mean that we don't want to be creative.  So we are only too happy to welcome new ways to capture her interests and have as much fun as possible. 


We were so grateful to be kindly sent some really cool products from Little Brian to help keep us occupied. We first came across Little Brian Paint Sticks a few years ago, and I can honestly say they are amazing and such a great way to little one to have so much fun without all the mess. But we have recently discovered that Little Brian have added a few more products to their already impressive range and we couldn't wait to try them. Have you ever tried of Little Brian?


Little Brian Paint Sticks are a convenient, quick and easy way to involve children in painting without the mess and preparation of usual paints. Even though these paint sticks may lack the experience of using squishy liquid, they can be just as much fun with all the different ways you can unleash a little creativity. 

These paint sticks come in a great variety of beautifully vibrant colours and packages that most parents will want to have a stash at the ready for their little ones. They are water soluble and feel almost like a glue stick where you need to twist at the bottom to reveal the colour, the paint has no odour and dries really fast, so much faster than conventional paints. The sticks are really chunky in size meaning that they are perfect for little hands that want to show off their art skills, but without all the mess!!!

As well as conventional places for artwork, you can actually use these on windows! Whether your little ones take their artistic skills to windows around the house or in the car, they can get creative without getting into trouble and more importantly you can be safe in the knowledge that it will come off! But that's entirely up to you if you tell them.  

Little Brian Giant Paint Sticks

Brand new to the paint stick range is the biggest paint stick you will ever see, but this isn't just any paint stick. The Little Brian Giant Paint Stick is crammed with 30 colours from the paint stick range; 12 classic colours, 6 day glow colours and 12 metallic colours. My little girl absolutely loves this as it provides a handy places to keep and store all her paint sticks. Do you want to get your hands on one? Then don't forget to keep your eyes peeled for a giveaway over on our Insta page?



Not only does it seems pretty appealing to little ones, it will also bring hours of fun for all the family. The only thing I did find with this tub was that you had to empty out the whole tub to get the colours you wanted, so a little window or perhaps an opening on the side would make this user friendly, especially little ones. 


Little Brian Paint Sticks Bucket

For adventures on the go this Little Brian Paint Sticks Bucket is perfect. There are 20 super silky paints in strong vibrant classic, metallic and fluorescent colours in a handy bucket with a carry handle. Inside there are 12 classic colours, 6 day glow colours and 2 metallic colours that you can easily take away on travels. With a chunky feel the paint sticks are ideal for little hands, and great for use on a variety of materials – paper, wood, canvas glass windows. They also can be used for other art techniques like: stamping, overlaying, dotting and etching. As the paint dries so quickly there is literally no mess, no need for hand washing.


Little Brian Face Paints

I'm sure you can tell already, that we both LOVED these. It has been a little while since my little girl had her face painted, but she could tell straight away what they were for. The Little Brain Face Paints come in a set with 12 colours and a booklet of different designs to help get you started. We did really well as we made our way through the booklet. 

















The face paints were really chunky in size so trying to get intricate detailing on the designs was really hard to do, buy we made our sticks into a pencil shape that really helped. The face paints were so easy to use and glided smoothly over the skin, and washed away without leaving any stains or irritation. 

























As you can probably see we both had lots of fun with these face paints. Everyday she would want a different creation and over time my face painting skills improved. Our favourite designs were unicorn, tiger, ladybird and a bee. However I was allowed to get away with not getting my face painted, so even my daughter has a go at making me into  Dalmatian. It felt so odd on my skin and nothing compared to makeup but washed away so easily. What do you think of her design? It was such much fun, well until I had to answer the door to the postman. My daughter thought it was hilarious, while I was completely mortified.

We LOVED the Little Brian Paint Paint Sticks and Face Paints and we had some much fun without all the faffing of a clean up. These paint sticks are one of the best inventions and something that every parent needs for their little ones.
