What perfect way to spend Mother’s Day than with the person (or people) who made you a mommy in the first place? When I was invited to attend the Little Mommy Party hosted by Mattel and featuring Little Mommy Dolls, I was actually a little disappointed that I wouldn’t be able to make it. Being 9 months pregnant limits my activities with my toddler, but as the date grew closer and I was still very pregnant, I decided to attend the event and crossed my fingers my water wouldn’t break while we were there!
As we walked into Dylan’s Candy Bar in NYC, I’m not too sure who was more excited at all the candy options – my toddler or myself! I confess, after spending some time there, I want to have my next birthday bash there! Candy Bar is the perfect name for this place, as they had aisles and bins overflowing with sweets. I was in heaven! We managed to peel our eyes off all the candy and make it upstairs to the Little Mommy Party where my toddler was greeted by the awesome people from Mattel. She was able to choose which baby she wanted to adopt and she already knew she wanted the “purple doll.” I was just a little disappointed that there was no brown eyed/ brunette doll, but that feeling quickly disappeared when my toddler immediately cradled her new baby and asked everyone to lower their voices because her baby was sleeping! How cute!
After she adopted her Baby So New doll, it was time to test out all the accessories in the Little Mommy line. Cradles, Bassinets, strollers, and more! She didn’t know where to start! There were even stations set up where she was able to “bathe” and “feed’ her baby. Absolutely adorable! My toddler had a great time pretending to be a Little Mommy and I had a great time watching her practice her big sister skills and take care of her baby. Her actions truly amazed me and I was so happy that we could both be a part of this very special event. At the end of the event a florist presented my toddler with a beautiful arrangement of flowers. She even got made her own goodie bag full of yummy treats from Dylan’s Candy Bar!
