Our Groovy Girls Sweet 16 Tea Party

Sponsored post Groovy Girls Sweet 16
We all want our daughters to grow up in a world where they are only limited by their own imaginations. Even in our fast-paced lifestyles, such a place still exists and it’s within the world of Groovy Girls. These colorful soft dolls are full of personality and spunk with a message to girls to be true to themselves.

This year the iconic Groovy Girls from Manhattan Toy Company are turning 16 and they are as big of a hit now as they were when they first arrived in toy stores all those years ago. In fact, Groovy Girls just won the prestigious Parents' Choice Award this year!


Groovy Girls in tentWhile I didn’t grow up playing with these adorable dolls myself, I must admit I’ve logged hours of playtime with Groovy Girls. Back when Groovy Girls were first introduced, I had two sweet nieces who were obsessed with the colorful and fun soft range of dolls and accessories. We spent tons of time setting up scenes and having tea parties as well as imagining elaborate scenarios for each of the individual dolls. So, when Groovy Girls caught my daughter’s eye a few years ago, I couldn’t have been happier.

With colorful and fun clothing, accessories, and even hairdos, Groovy Girls dolls each have a style all their own. Whether your little one bonds with a 70’s-loving free spirit or a pink-attired girly girl, they are sure to find a girl that is perfect for them. And, not only are the dolls fun to dress up and play with along with their various playsets and accessories, their soft bodies make them perfect snuggle friends when play time is over. Groovy Girls
Really, what more could a little girl want in a playmate? 

In honor of the Groovy Girls Sweet 16, we decided to throw a tea party for all my daughter’s little girlfriends at a local park. We had cookies, toys, dolls, crafts, and a whole lot of pink, which is just about every one of her favorite things. Happy 16th Groovy GirlsWe set up a few party stations for guests: the food table, the canopied tea party table, the craft table, and a rug for playing with the dolls set up with the Groovy Girls Royally Ritzy Bed, some clothing for the dolls, and the Totally Tentastic tent.

We chose the Groovy Girls Glam-It-Yourself Jewelry Box since we had such an age range and I knew the girls would be able to do the craft on their own if they would like. Plus, aren't they adorable? I have already heard from every single one of their moms letting me know how much the girls love their new personalized jewelry boxes. Groovy Girls arts and crafts

At the end of the party, the girls each got to take home their favorite Groovy Girls doll as well as a special Sweet 16 swag bag full of Groovy Girl accessories. It was also perfect for taking home their handmade jewelry boxes and new special friend.
