I was super excited that Peyton and I were invited to celebrate the launch of the new Kenya Doll with Family Dollar! The first Kenya dolls debuted in 1992. I am about to tell on myself but I never got to enjoy Kenya because I was a teen at that time : ). Now she is Bizzack with mad style and a crew! Now available at Family Dollar Stores!
Peyton and I were chauffeured to a mini concert with Kenya and her band! Yes the new Kenya is in a band called Rock Star Madness! Kenya has come alive and is played by by "Hannah Montana" star Shanica Knowles
Kenya (left) and her band-mates brought the kids on stage. So cute! Peyton started acting shy and wanted me to go with her... no maam!
Kenya Doll collection and had a fun shopping experience!
Bob Giles, Divisional VP of Family Dollar talking about the history of the Kenya Doll and why they are bringing them back.
Kenya Doll, I love the message behind it, "Grow Up Proud, Just Like Me!" So many young girls grow up with self hate issues. It's really tough when they don't see themselves in any of the toys they play with. I am happy that the Kenya Doll is back and Peyton can have this experience! Head over to Kenya's World to check out the full catalog of dolls. They have the Classic Kenya, Fashion Madness Kenya and My First Kenya for babies!
Check out the official Kenya and the Rock Star Madness band video!
Big thanks for to Family Dollar for giving Peyton and I the Super Star treatment! Did you have a Kenya Doll when you were younger? Or are you old like me? LOL! Kenya will make a great Christmas gift!!!
