Metro Mama & Metro Baby

By Patricia Wersinger

Tweens come in all shapes these days. Some are still sweet and innocent little girls who love their dolly while others seem already ripe for the teen years. What can you get the girls in your family this holiday? Here’s a list of possibilities for Tween girls, ages 7 and older. Look carefully: some of these items might suit you too!

Dollie & Me is a new collection of dolls coming with clothing that can be purchased in girls’ real sizes too. This new collection aims at helping girls feel secure through bonding with their doll and develop their identity by picking clothes for their dolls and themselves. The choices are infinite and varied from classical, trendy, sporty and glam and so reasonably priced you will be tempted to get more than one set.

The MyWallaby Dolly Carrier can be converted from a pretty purse to a doll carrier and can accommodate dolls and stuffed animals for easy transportation like a real Wallaby pouch. Made from the finest materials, it is available in Cotton Candy pink and Isle of Capri blue.

How fast can you think up three names when you are limited to 5 seconds? The 5 Second Rule will challenge Tweens to think quickly to “name three” whether it is 3 breeds of dogs, 3 Harry Potter books or 3 nineteenth century US presidents. For 3 or More Players. Ages 10 to Adults. Let the fun begin!

Every little girl will love the Sweetpea Beauty dvd, a lesson about true beauty, in the popular Veggie Tales series. Sweet Pea knows that what matters is what is on the inside and will try to save the Queen from the lies of the tricky mirror. Includes a score of silly and heart-warming songs.

This classic Plaid Jumper from The Children’s Place is perfect for any special time this holiday season. Worn with a turtleneck or a blouse, it will brighten any winter day after the holidays too. Available in girls sizes up to 14 at The Childrens’ Place Stores everywhere.

These Flat Ankle Boots made out of slouchy organic cotton, flexible rubber and a lightly padded insole for comfort create an arresting look with skinny jeans or a skirt. Your hip Tween or young Teen will keep this boot at hand all year round. Available in women sizes 6 and up in Payless stores everywhere.

This Chain Spike Necklace with hanging chains and spikes by PNK Elephant gives instant drama to any look fishing for the Trend. All the chic yet unexpensive pieces in the collection are essential for Glam Fashionistas who know that strong contemporary accessories is what gives a limited wardrobe’s its clout.

City Slips were created by a pair of NYU graduates to help Fashionistas get relief from high heel pumps at the end of the night. Just keep the neatly fashioned little bag tight in your purse with your pair of city slips and when pain shows its ugly face just slip into them and switch the high heel pumps into the little black bag. City slips sets include a pair of slip – in shoes and slip – in flats. Essential for young girls who are just debuting into high pumps.

It is no mystery that girls of all ages love make up. Nothing will rejoice your little Tween more than her own Eye Shadow Palette like the one Elf has put together for the holidays. She can share it with her friends at parties and sleepovers and create great looks that won’t break anyone’s bank. Also available by Elf are Holiday Nail Polish Sets that add instant pizzazz and make a super stocking stuffer. Available at Target stores and http://www.elf.com

Jordin Sparks, the American Idol winner that every Tween girl adores has created her own line of fragrance named Because Of You, that expresses her vibrant personality through scents such as Clementine, Orange Blossom, Nectarine, Sheer Musk, Vanilla Bean and Baltic Amber. A gift every Jordin Sparks fan will cherish.

A unique idea for a Tween who has everything, Canvas Pop allows you to transfer her favourite photo of herself, her pet, her family, her friends or her artwork on a canvas. You can give any photo a new dimension and an effect such as pop art, hand – drawn sketch, vintage color or traditional oil painting. It can make a great decorative addition to her bedroom and be a memorable keepsake. All you need is to upload the picture and pick your effects.
Check http://www.canvaspop.com for more information.

From boots and games, fragrances and make up sets, I hope this list will help you find something to the fancy of your Tween this holiday and help her have the best of all times.
