Olivia – She Thinks Boldly and Follows Her Dreams

When I was sent samples of plush Ready to Play Olivia I’M A Star and Olivia 2-in-1 Transforming House/Pirate Ship Playset, I became curious. I soon learned Olivia is a 6 3/4 years old with boundless imagination who knows her own mind. She is a great example to confidence and self-esteem. Bossy, headstrong, sophisticated, mischievous, spunky, plucky, uncompromising, and charming–all describe her personality. Take that to mean her qualities are the same as those of most human kids.

Further research put me in the know that Olivia is the pig diva heroine of three Ian Falconer children’s books, calendars, Cd’s, DVDs, and an animated Nick Jr. television series. She even has her own website and a developing line of clothes. Busy pig. Live and learn.

Olivia Plush

Spin Master has just put four new 8″ plush Olivias on the market in time for holiday shopping. Personally, I bet these will be hot, hot, hot! The line includes Olivia Ready to Play (Red Outfit), Olivia Ready to Paint (Artist Outfit), Olivia Ready to Perform (Cow Costume), and Olivia Ready to Sing (Red Gown). With a SMRP of $10.99 each available at Toys R Us, Target, and K-mart, little girls of all ages will want to collect all four of these soft toys.

Olivia Transforming Playset

Also on the market from Spin Master is its Olivia 2-in-1 Transforming Playset. This store and carry three area dollhouse (complete with bedroom, living room, and kitchen furniture) converts to a pirate ship ready to sail the high seas. Isn’t adventurous something we want in a young girl’s role model?

I love dollhouses so this is one item I would definitely buy even though some of the 23 accessory pieces are small and stickers have to be applied. Too bad accessories include only Olivia no family, pets, or playmates. The Olivia 2-in-1 Transforming Playset is cute, easy to assemble, portable, and fun, fun, fun. With a SMRP of $29.99, it is a perfect pretend toy for girls four and up.
