Redefining Girly is about balance. It is the idea there are many ways to be a girl. It is also about letting girls show you who they want to be in the world.
The is the Original Pigtail Pal opening her birthday presents tonight. We tried to have her gifts focus on strong, curious, adventurous girls and balance out her obsession with mermaids. She received several books that showcase adventurous girls (Mermaid Tales, American Girl Josephina, Ivy & Bean, Madeline, Emily Windsnap), an American Girl science lab set, a shirt that says “Girls Love to Camp”, leg warmers, and Lego sets (Merida’s Highland Games, Ariel’s treasures, and one from the Lego Movie).
Redefining Girly is not about telling girls how to be a girl, it is about showing them everything that girlhood can be.
