American Girl's New App: WellieWishers: Garden Fun Game

Growing up I loved American Girl dolls.  I obsessed over Samantha and Molly. I loved their clothes and accessories and when the catalog would come in the mail, I would spend hours pouring over it, dreaming of owning one. Now that I have my own daughter, she is also in love with American Girl dolls.

Her first doll was bought by my mother, with a full trip to the Natick American Girl store.  A second was added with her second hand Emily doll. Then a Bitty Baby joined the party. Then American Girl introduced their new line of Wellie Wishers and Emma and I both fell in love. Instead of 18" soft body dolls, the Wellie Wishers are 14" hard body dolls. Their smaller bodies are a bit easier for Emma to play with.   Emma already has 3 of the dolls, and is asking for another from Santa so we were especially excited when we were contacted to try out the new WellieWishers: Garden Fun Game.

WellieWishers are a sweet and silly group of girls who each have the same big, bright wish: to be a good friend. And now with the WellieWishers: Garden Fun app, little ones can learn how to be a good friend as they play. From hidden object and tea-party planning minigames to nurturing their own garden and customizing the backyard garden with stickers, little kids are invited to join the WellieWishers to discover what makes friendships grow.

The content is tailored to kids ages 5-7, offering good-quality entertainment from a well-loved, trusted brand partner in American Girl. And, with school back in session, it’s a great opportunity to reinforce the values young ones are learning in class, so they can practice their caring and empathy skills while outside of preschool or elementary school.  

Even though American Girl is often marketed towards girls (even though they added a boy doll!) I love that both my boy and girl love the games. When we're at dance and waiting for Emmalee, Tyler often grabs my phone and starts to play. When we're in the grocery store, Tyler will take my phone from my bag and start to play.  Thankfully, even though it's a game full of content, it doesn't destroy my battery!

Each of the little games inside of the app offer creative content for kids.  The app is free but some of the extra content does cost money (no more than $3 from Google Play!)  My kids especially love finding the hidden objects game!

In a world full of technology and "scary things" on the internet, I love that American Girl has created an app that the kids love to play with that also encourages creative and empathy, just like the rest of the American Girl line does! Grab the app on iOS and Android today!
