Subscription boxes are all the rage these days. There is a subscription box for just about anything you can think of – books, coffee, cookies, memorabilia… They even have boxes for dogs.
I personally subscribe to a few subscription boxes. I have subscribed to others over the past few years.
I subscribe to boxes because I enjoy received surprise packages in the mail. Often you have no clue what will be in the box. You can often find “spoilers” on the Internet, but I chose not to know what is in the box until it’s opened.
When I was a child, getting mail was the highlight of my day – my week or month too for that matter. There is nothing more exciting as a child than to receive something in the mail. Usually it was a postcard from my father who travelled the world (or my grandparents). Other times it was an actual letter. Those were exciting to me, but the biggest excitement of it all was received a package in the mail.
When I was young, my mom subscribed to one of the monthly book clubs. I can’t remember the name of it, but I received books written by Dr. Seuss and Syd Hoff, to name a few. I couldn’t wait to open those boxes.
These days, children can received other fun things in the mail via subscription box services. One such service is called Club Emmie.
Club Emmie is a subscription service that delivers clothing, accessories and play sets right to your child’s (or grandchild’s) door each month. Club Eimmie clothing and accessories work with 18″ dolls.
Dolls are a great way to encourage a child’s imagination and creativity. Little girls like to mimic their moms, as well as taking care of their doll/baby. It teaches children responsibility (taking care of their doll). Dolls also act as a child’s special friend – one they can go on magical adventures with, as well as to keep them company on long trips and to snuggle with at night.
I still have a few of my dolls from when I was a little girl. They meant the world to me and I didn’t have the heart to throw them out. I doubt they are worth anything on Ebay. That doesn’t matter anyway. You can put a price tag on cherished items from your past.
There are 18″ dolls available for purchase on the Club Eimmie website, Eimmie.com. Eimmie dolls are avaialabel in fair skin, tan skin and dark skin. Each doll is beautiful too!
I was sent an Eimmie doll to review. I received the Playtime Eimmie 18″ Allie Doll.
The makers of Eimmie didn’t fail to impress. Their doll arrives not only in a box (for it’s protection during shipping), but the doll also comes with it’s own carrying/storage case.
The Eimmie Playtime Doll is very well made. I have seen many dolls of this size, some much more expensive than the Eimmie doll (I won’t mention the brand, but most people will know which one I am referring to), and this doll is made as well as that much more expensive doll.
The doll has BEUTIFUL hair. I love her hair! Brushing and styling a doll’s hair was always one of my favorite things to do. This doll’s hair can be easily braided, clipped back with a hair clip, or you can use a hairband with it. Anything your child/grandchild could do with their hair (aside from using a heat source), you can most likely do with the Eimmie doll’s hair.
The doll comes wearing a pretty outfit. She also comes with pajamas that your child can change the doll into at night before they snuggle together in bed. I like that that brand went above and beyond to include an extra outfit (pajamas) in with the doll.
Eimmie dolls can also fit into other clothing made for 18″ dolls.
The case the doll comes in is soft sided and has a handle, making it easy for a child to carry it around. I also like the that a child could pack the doll, some clothing and accessories in the case to take with them when they travel.
The doll’s eyes open and close, depending on her position.
The doll I received (Allie) even has freckles on her face. The brand truly paid attention to detail when creating these dolls.
Other outfits and play sets are available on the brand’s website. I especially like the Safari Set with plush animals. That is so cute!
The doll furniture sold on the website is AWESOME! I wish I was a young girl and still played with dolls. All of those sets would certainly be on my Christmas Wish List. I think she has better furniture than I do (ha ha).
I was also sent to review one of Club Eimmie’s subscription packages. I received THE CUTEST little gingerbread man apron for the doll, as well as one that would fit a child. Too bad my daughter is grown now. I did bring it to work with me for the kids to use with our kitchen set in our program.
The apron set for both a child and the doll also came with a really cute hat, but for health reasons we can’t let the kids at work share a hat.
I bet a child and their doll dressed in this adorable set would make a great Christmas photo. I also think it would be darling to see a child in this apron set, with their doll, in the kitchen baking cookies with grandma or mom. That would make for a lovely photo.
The Club Eimmie Subscription is available in different subscriptions. You can subscribe for just one month, or you can subscribe for six or twelve months.
Each subscription comes with apron and hat set (child and doll sets). You’ll also receive weekly emails with fun activities you and your child/grandchild can do together.
I think a subscription to Club Eimmie would be the ideal holiday gift for that special child in your life. It’s the gift that keeps on giving month after month (depending on how long you subscribe for). Combine this gift with a Club Eimmie doll, and you have the perfect gift.
Even if you don’t have time to purchase a Club Eimmie doll, the clothing and accessories still work with other 18″ dolls.
