On the shelves in our stores, we see dolls that are barely dressed with fish net stockings and way too much make-up being marketed to our little girls! Girls as young as 5 wanting to be part of a "hot chick" club in Kindergarten. As a parent of two girls, this has been a very big concern of mine. It is difficult to see little girls acting like teenagers instead of children. I've been trying to find resources and other toys for my own girls that send more positive messages. Today, I came across a website that shares some of the same values that I hope to instill in my own children. You may be familiar with Precious Moment Products. They are the creators of the Precious Girls Club. On the PGC website, members "create their own characters (or "avatars"), decorate their rooms, explore our town, socialize, play games and even shop "virtually" using the points they earn on the site. PGC games reinforce such virtues as helpfulness, kindness, responsibility, loving and caring. In addition to points, many activities award "virtual" virtue charms. And, it's all fun!" This sounds like something my little "techie" girls would love! I'm looking forward to sharing it with them.
"Precious Girls Club is more than a club - it's a way of thinking, acting and living. We are dedicated to helping young girls discover how wonderful and fun it is to be precious."
