Over the weekend I took my granddaughter to the mall to go shopping at the toy store. She's at the age where searching through the shoppes is really fun, and she definitely knows what she likes. We also decided to go pick out a new dress for Spring/Easter. To accompany her purchase, I brought along a Stretch Butterfly Necklace, Ring and Bracelet set from SmitCo LLC., which she absolutely loved!
The necklace has different colored butterflies and beads on it. They are made of super lightweight wood. I love that these pieces of jewelry do not have a clasp for little ones to have to fumble with...you simply stretch them over your head, arm or finger.
The necklace alone would have delighted my grandbaby, but add the matching bracelet and she was tickled pink (or orange, as the case may be here).
The jewelry stayed on through an activity and fun-filled day, and did not cut off her circulation in any way, shape or form (always what I think of as a mom/grandma when it comes to things that stretch). It also proved to be very durable, getting wet multiple times (a girl's gotta wash her hands) and drying quickly with the colors and shape remaining intact 100% (no fading, color bleeding or shrinking).
I personally thought the ring would be an aside. My bad. Turns out the ring was every bit as important to her as the other two pieces. How do I know? Because I took her ring and bracelet off when she was sleeping, and it was the ring she instantly missed when she woke up.
Here she is in her new dress that she picked out all by herself. This was the one she was adamant that she liked the best, and so of course, that's the one we got (grandma, that would be me, definitely loved that it was a $32 dress marked down to just $12). :) She's already a great shopper! I think the Smit Co. butterfly necklace looks just darling paired with it.
On our way out of the mall, we stopped at the quarter machines stationed in the aisles (though they are called dollar machines these days, I suppose). That's where little Ms. Butterfly (punny, right?) made pretend ice cream for me and one of her uncles. ;) The best part of the day? We got to go BACK to the mall later that day with both of her uncles, and walk around the mall yet again. Life is good when you're 4...that's all I have to say. :)
