Cute Girl Stuff

My daughters have every little tiny girl toy known to the Universe. I’ve noticed that beyond an occasional Barbie boot or Polly Pocket accessory, most of their toys of choice are the non-human kind. If it’s not a Pretty Pony or Littlest Pet Shop, then it’s some sort of stuffed animal (beanie baby, Webkinz, whatevs. They’re not picky).

When I found out from The Parent Blogger Network that EA was coming out with the Littlest Pet Shop games for both the Nintendo Wii and the Nintendo DS Lite I was super-stoaked. That alone proves that I too am infatuated by all things Littlest Pet Shop. No, I’m not kidding. Those things are adorable! I would have LOVED this stuff as a kid just as I did all the little Hello Kitty loot I collected. Not much has changed. The tiny trinkets my girls love remind me of those days. It’s amazing that this many years later (I won’t give you specific years here) that this is still what many girls gravitate to. Now, toss in a little gaming action (the latest rage for girls) and you’ve got yourself a hit.

In other words, the girls love Littlest Pet Shop gone video game. We have both the DS Lite version for my 5 year old and the Wii for my 11 year old. You can never get enough, “Ah, look at how cuuuuuute!” delivered in high pitched squeal. I think it’s been really fun to see their furry little friends come to life and explore their happy little virtual homes. And I like kidding myself into thinking that maybe they won’t keep asking for a puppy for Christmas since they’ve got one on the TV. A mom can dream can’t she?

I think I would love those too. I still love playing video games and tend to borrow them from my nieces and nephew.

Thanks for the recommendation! My kiddos are getting DS for Christmas, so I added this game to the bag.

My 11 year old is still in love with all things Littlest Pet Shop and I agree, they are so darn cute! I've often wished I had had these toys when I was a kid, too! :D

I still stop and look at the toys and think, "Oh, I wish ..." and then I remember I'm 48.

I am new to blogging and discovered your Shutter Sisters and wanted to post your logo on my blog by grabbing the html but I don't know what to do with it after I get it. Can you direct me to a tutorial and exactly what is it? Is it a gadget? Do I need to get proficient with Open Social? Do you mind directing me to the best source to learn this copy and pasting of html

Hi Tracey,

Kristina here regarding the SSis giveaway. I emailed my address you to the other day; perhaps it went to your junk box? I will try again right now! Many thanks.

That sounds like something my girls would love too. Those Littlest pet guys are really cute, I agree. It was nice seeing you Friday...it was fun!

I have hoped to ban barbies from my house(lost battle). I had banned pink. I am not a huge supporter of the Disney princesses.
I love the Little Pet Shops! They are too cute. I always tell other moms, I just love these! It gives me another reason to PLAY!
