Just Pretend Kids! #Giveaway

We received the tutu and wings below to facilitate the review.



We were pretty excited when we got a fun package in the mail a few weeks ago! The kids always love packages, and Annabelle was absolutely thrilled with this one!

I had picked out the Pansy Tutu and Wings from the Flower Collection for Annabelle, and she loved it.
  


The set is adorable, and she really has enjoyed it. I do think the colors are much bolder on my computer screen. The yellow was much more muted, as was the dark purple, when actually in our hands. Unfortunately, the wings didn't last long with the boys around, either. They are wire with panty-hose-like fabric stretched across to make the wings. 

The tutu has held up well to lots of use.... LOTS of twirling! 

There are a lot of other girly dress up tutus and outfits, as well as some great costumes from Just Pretend Kids, so be sure to check them out if you are looking for costumes or fun dress up clothes for your kids! Just Pretend Kids also has boxed party kits with a special gift for the guest of honor!
