The doll and book were launched earlier this year and we get to review it on the #MelAndNikkiReview.
Let’s just recap a little about the concept behind this amazing toy and book.
Summer is the World’s First Healthy Eating Doll and she is adorable! She is a magnetic doll that can easily tell which foods are good for her. Summer comes with a set of 20 colorful, wooden toy foods and a cute shopping bag. Healthy foods like apples, carrots, tomatoes, blueberries and broccoli, stick to her mouth so she can “eat” them. If the doll is offered a lollipop however, she will not take it. The effect of tasting and touching the foods is accomplished through the use of hidden magnets, that are safely and inconspicuously embedded in the mouth and the hands of the doll. Summer can easily pick up healthy foods with her hands and bring them to her mouth. She really knows what’s good for her!
This children’s picture book is filled with bouncy rhymes and gorgeous illustrations made entirely of fruits and veggies. It features food art created by over 10 talented artists from all around the world!
This book teaches children about healthy eating and you can combine the book with the doll in the learning experience.
We already fell in love with this product during their Kickstarter Campaign as we thought the concept was genius! Now we get to actually try it out for ourselves and our love for it has grown tremendously. It is such a great way to promote and encourage healthy eating. Nikki really got a kick out of the doll only picking up and “eating” the healthy foods. Nikki is still trying to figure out how Summer does it but we will keep that secret from her a little while longer. At the present time, we tell her that Summer is very smart and knows what’s good for her body and it works! 😉
The combination of Summer with the Healthy Foods Are Fun To Eat Book is fantastic! This children’s book is unique as it uses fruits and veggies to create the illustrations. Each page is breathtaking and it simply amazes me to see the art created with fruits and veggies. I think I need to up my mom game! 😉 You can use both the doll and book in teaching about healthy and unhealthy foods. Plus, the doll is so adorable that it is hard not to enjoy learning about different foods through her.
Therefore, for this #MelAndNikkiReview, we give this delightful duo of Summer and The Healthy Foods Are Fun To Eat, 10 strawberries out of 5! It promotes healthy eating in the most fun way and we love the combination of doll and book. We recommend this for children ages three and up. This would be great for schools to use with young children as it can be a great tool in teaching.
