American Girl and KidsShoes Footwear Launch
Disclosure: I attended a press preview of the new American Girl and KidsShoes footwear line. All opinions are mine alone.
Time to get back to the day to day reality of school, packing lunches, getting up and ready for the clock, and all the activities. It was a nice week off with the kids to fly by the seat of our pants. A well needed stay-cation for us all! Wish the weather would have been a bit warmer but we did end the week with some really beautiful Spring days.
Last Wednesday I took the train into New York City with the girls and their Godmother for a girls day! We saw our first Broadway show (more on that later this week) had a little lunch, shopped a bit and ended the day at American Girl’s new Times Square store. We had visited the old store a few times before and it was kinda small and busy. This new store is HUGE and beautiful and didn’t make us feel like we couldn’t get around or see anything because SO MANY PEOPLE. You know this store is a hot spot for the little girls and every single time we’ve been – chuck full of people! When we first went to the American Girl store as a family for Valentina’s third birthday I had made lunch reservations at their cafe in February! For a June birthday. Yep!
We were visiting the store for the exclusive first preview of the new American Girl and KidsShoes Footwear Launch for the WellieWisher™ Doll line. WellieWishers™ from American Girl shoes exclusive to KidsShoes.com and Nordstrom! Each pair of shoes in the line is uniquely made to reflect the individual personality of each WellieWisher™ doll.
You may be familiar with the WellieWisher™ line for girls ages 5-7. There are five fun-loving characters – Willa, Kendall, Ashlyn, Emerson, and Camille – who imagine and play in a whimsical backyard garden while learning timeless life lessons on empathy, kindness, and the importance of being a good friend. My girls have four of the WellieWisher dolls in their collection and they are simply adorable!
My girls have been loving their Camille and Willa dolls for a few years now. They are adorable and a smaller size doll with a lower price point than the traditional American Girl doll. My seven year old really enjoys the series of books that go along with the dolls too.
When the girls discovered we were there at the store to see shoes FOR THEM to pair up with their dolls they couldn’t even believe it! So many different styles to choose from which would they pick first?! Valentina kept repeating, “I’m so lucky”.
You can see my girls’ shoe picks here. They both loved the MULTI PATCH SNEAKER which they can customize any which way with the removable velcro “stickers”. Valentina is obsesses with flip flops so she picked the KENDAL FLOWER FLIP FLOP to show off her summer pedicures. Gabriella like the CAMILLE SHELL SANDAL which is perfectly adorable with the starfish and seashell decorations.
The shoes run true to size and don’t come in half sizes. Sizes start at a toddler size 5 and go up to a youth size 13. I’d suggest if your child is in-between sizes go up to the next full size. Prices range from $15.00-49.00.
