Holiday Gift Guide | StinkyKids Plush Dolls & Children’s Book Series Review

Are you looking for a fun, creative gift idea for kids for the holidays or an upcoming special occasion? StinkyKids has an adorable line of plush dolls and is currently featuring the first book in the StinkyKids adventure series, “StinkyKids and the Runaway Scissors”.

I love the concept behind the award winning StinkyKids toy line since each doll is specifically designed to teach life lessons in an interesting way that is sure to engage and capture the child’s attention. These sweet “little stinkers” are not always perfect and get into mischief (just like my three little ones) but during their adventures they learn about the value of making good choices.

My daughter Hannah, age 5 was delighted to meet her new StinkyKids doll friend, also named “Hannah” (SRP $16.50). This character likes to teach children “right from wrong” and in doing so the two “friends” have been having a lot of fun on their adventures together. The 12” plush doll is soft and begging to be cuddled and loved. I appreciate the attention to detail i.e. embroidered faces, removable clothes and even the personalized tush.

You can purchase all of the characters in the StinkyKids collection including boy dolls like “Billy”, “Max” and “Johnny” as well as additional girl dolls that are featured in the book, “StinkyKids and the Runaway Scissors.”

My kids (even my boys) enjoyed this adventure story that focuses on teaching children life lessons and each character is a “leader of good”. As a mom, I like that this book is not only entertaining but educational as well. It opened up a lively and fun discussion with my kids about the benefits of their striving for good behavior and the fact that they are still loveable and well loved even when there are occasionally naughty. The interesting text and vivid illustrations are age appropriate and engaging and we can’t wait to read the latest stories in the StinkyKids book series.

You are invited to visit the StinkyKids website to learn more about the toy and book line. A favorite doll and the book, “StinkyKids and the Runaway Scissors” would make a wonderful gift set for the holidays!
