5 stars for Fancy Nancy

5 Good Christmas Presents for Girls Ages 4-8

This is one thing my daughter is getting this year. She loves everything "Fancy Nancy" and this book and doll allow my wife and I to purchase something for her that is "Fancy" and educational.

"Meet Nancy who believes that more is ALWAYS better when it comes to being fancy. From the top of her tiara down to her sparkly studded shoes, Nancy is determined to teach her family a thing or two about being fancy."

The original "Fancy Nancy" spent over 100 weeks on the New York Times Best Seller List. Fancy nancy is a young girl who loves anything that is fancy. She redecorates her bedroom often, and loves using big words like extraordinary or anything that is in French. She dresses in fancy slipper, tutus, and anything fancy she can find. Despite being "Fancy" there is a story behind each of Jane O'Connor's best selling books and Fancy Nancy always understands what truly counts in life.

*Buying Tip - Purchase this "Fancy Nancy" book with the Fancy Nancy Cloth 18 inch doll and the Briarpatch Fancy Nancy Positively Perfect Parfait Game.

A Throwback Gift from 2011 That's now on Sale

Here's that gift that you hate to love and love to hate. As seen on Ellen, it's the new Fisher-Price Sing-A-Ma-Jigs! These zany dolls are the newest singing craze. There are 3 different ways to play: Chatter, Sing a Song, and Harmonize.

You can easily change what mode they are in by squeezing their left hands, or their tummies to see their mouths open and hear them chatter and sing. In chatter mode, they speak to each other in their own language. In Harmonize mode they interact with other Sing-A-Ma-Jigs by harmonizing in perfect pitch. The more you add the more intricate the harmony becomes.
