This is one of my favorite reviews to date! I absolutely love start up companies, especially family companies, and with the times that we are in right now this company gives a little ray of sunshine in all ways! Pen Pal Girls concept was formed in 2010 when Tina Pang Mayer, mother of two, realized her daughters were not fully aware of their cultural heritage and therefore could not fully appreciate their uniqueness. I think we all want our children to know who they are and where they come from.
It was something special for my sisters and I growing up and learning about our Grandmother’s Mexican/Mayan heritage. So I understand how it is important for girls like my daughter. Pen Pal Girls have a truly unique way of teaching heritage! The combination of Pen Pal Girl dolls and their interactive website offering letter writing, games and (my personal favorite) the interactive FlyPPG which has so much information it really brings to life the different countries and cultures! They are not just shapes on a map but real places with real people living real lives!
Pen Pal Girls offer high-end 18 inch dolls and doll products without the high-end cost. Each doll arrives with a letter telling a little about who they are and where they are from. We reviewed Emma who is from the UK, she is such a beautiful doll and she came with a Wedding Dress with matching shoes! My daughter was ecstatic.
My name is Emma, I’m a PenPalGirls doll. I reside in the suburbs of London, where my family lives quite pleasantly. From my bedroom window I can see the tops of numerous grand buildings that the city is famous for. Sometimes, when it does not rain too much, I stroll downtown with my puppy Crumpet and gaze at the Eye, the Big Ben, or the Westminster Abbey. Recently, I attended the glorious Royal Wedding with my family and dreamed to wear the bride’s royal gown.
I can’t remember the last time my daughter was this excited that she could not wait to have her new friend out of the box. She just had to change her into the wedding dress. The wedding dress really amazed me as it was inspired by Prince William and Kate’s wedding the dress! It is so beautiful! It has embroidered flowers and beautiful sparkly matching shoes.
Tina Pang Mayer did not want other families to have to start from scratch like she did so all of the Pen Pal Girls outfits fit your standard 18″ doll; likewise your Pen Pal Girl can fit in most 18″ clothes.
Pen Pal Girls products are high quality and most importantly, they are made with love. Everything about Pen Pal Girls – the concept, products, and the interactive website was all created with love. I am very excited for this company and to be able to share my affection for them with all of you.
