I’m a mom to three girls and my girls have their very own unique dynamic as sisters. Growing up my sister and I would spend hours and hours playing with or Barbie’s. It snowed a lot during winter so we’d find ourselves playing Barbie’s indoors. Some of my favorite memories growing up are playing with my sister and I want to encourage that same bond with my own daughters.
My girls are big fans of Barbie their dolls have inspired my girls to be anything they can be. They’re imaginative and playful when they play with Barbie and I just want my girls to have those same joys of childhood that I did. With two girls so close in age and liking the same things sometimes it’s also navigating getting along.
4 Simple Tips for Raising Sisters Who Get Along
- They Can Be Anything – I like to teach my girls that they can do anything. Whatever it is they want to try I make it possible from art class, swim, or dance and gymnastics. I encourage each of my girls to have their own passions and extra circular activities.
- Don’t Compare Achievements – Each of my girls is strong at something the other is not. I teach them not to compare their achievements and remind them often that everyone is unique.
- Spend Time Alone – You have to spend time alone with each child. It’s important that they do feel like an individual. They can’t always be with their siblings and need that time with you alone.
- Promote Activities Together – We spend our weekends together as a family and we being active outdoors. I also try to promote other activities they like to do together like baking or playing with Barbies. It’s all about encouraging play that helps them develop as sisters and friends.
I like that Barbie has encouraged my girls to come together. It’s something they can do together and so this Christmas I’m looking for more gifts form Barbie that encourage them to be anything they can be, together! When I was little I got the original version of the Barbie Flip & Reveal Deluxe Styling Head and I remember how much I played with it with my sister. It’s fun to see my girls doing the same with a Styling Head that has many more features like coloring changing hair and makeup. One of the things I have learned about parenting daughters is how different each of my children really is. The one thing they have in common is the toys that they like to play with. Shopping at Walmart this Christmas I can give them the gifts they’re excited about like the Barbie Flip & Reveal Deluxe Styling Head. It’s something that brings my girls together to play and encourages their bond as sisters.
Another fun one for my girls that encourages imaginative play and social skills is the the Barbie 28″ Doll. It comes with a necklace and purse accessory to add a fashionable touch. This kids’ doll’s outfit, including the shoes, is removable. It stands 2″ feet tall so it’s like that life sized Barbie we always dreamt of. My kiddo treats her like just another one of her sisters and loves to do her hair and take her along on car rides. She even reads to her!
You can shop now at Walmart for the Barbie 28″ Doll and the Barbie Flip & Reveal Deluxe Styling Head. This Christmas Walmart is the one-stop-shop for all these great Mattel toys and more – Barbie, Hot Wheels, Thomas the Train and Fisher Price.
