Best Pals Review and Giveaway


UPDATE (1/29): This giveaway has ended!! 
The winner, by using random number generator,  is comment #65 from DEBIJOT (Deb, please email me at marvelouslymessy at gmail.com with your information)  
Thanks so much for joining in the fun!! Be sure to look for other great giveaways on my blog coming soon!!

I was recently given the chance to review a product from the Lennon Sisters called Best Pals and I'm totally thrilled!! Here's the deal: in 1949 Kathy and Janet Lennon each received a handmade ragdoll.

They loved these ragdolls so much that they are now selling exact replicas of the dolls!!

Here is what the Kathy doll looks like:


An exact replica of Kathy Lennon’s original ragdoll from 1949; down to the vintage fabric pattern on her sashed dress and the yarn hair that is styled in two perfect braids! 16” H

• Each doll is part of a numbered and limited edition
• Embroidered facial features
• Clothes are removable and changeable for added play-value
• Yarn hair is easy to re-style
• Each doll has a “Best Pals” baby bead bracelet – just like in the 1950’s


And, here is Janet:


The Janet doll is an exact reproduction of the ragdoll given to Janet Lennon at just 3 years old. The nostalgic pink and blue bunny print on her pale yellow dress reminds us of a sweeter, simpler time.16” 

 
On top of the two dolls, I was given a tea set with it's own carrying case. Now what little kiddo doesn't love a tea set??


AND I was given a really great CD with the Lennon sisters and their grandchildren singing all sorts of old and new favorite songs. These are a real hit at playgroup!!

I am totally thrilled with my little gift set from the Lennon Sisters. These dolls are absolutely precious and very well made. Sturdy and soft....and made from fabric, not plastic, like so many other dolls out there today. The outfits are so adorable and old fashioned.

Thanks to the Lennon Sister, I'm going to give one of you the opportunity to win the same gift package that I was given:

2 Dolls (Kathy and Janet)
Tea Set and Case
Best Pals Sing Together CD

  16. When I was a young girl, I shared my name with Peggy Lennon of the Lennon sisters, until she eloped. I still have the newspaper clipping that states "Peggy Lennon Elopes", which I found to be amusing, since that was my name and I didn't know what "eloped" meant at the time. I think I was about 8 or 9 years old.
