Pottery Barn Kids is Kylie's favorite store in the mall. Last night, the ladies working in the store asked Kylie if she was looking for anything special. I replied "EVERYTHING is special here!" - we all got a good chuckle and shared a knowing grin.
In fact, my very first post on this blog was about Pottery Barn Kids.
Last night, Kylie went immediately to the jewelry boxes. They are her very favorite items in Pottery Barn Kids. She LOVES watching the ballerinas spin to the music.
She especially loves changing out the ballerinas (every box comes with 2 of the tulle beauties).
Kylie loves things that come in sets. She loves to line them up and change them out. So, I asked the sales lady if you could purchase extra (or replacement) ballerinas. She looked online and said she didn't see them available for purchase by themselves. (Bummer!! I was hoping I could order 2 or three extra to give her more to change out)
I would love for Kylie to have one of these beautiful boxes as she has been so consistent in her adoration of them for literally years. Last night, she played with the card-stock ones, but if I ever lay down the money to buy her one, it will be a beautiful wooden one (they are expensive, but sturdy)
As you can see, Kylie made herself right at home in the little girls bedroom display (even taking off her shoes). What I wouldn't give to be able to have a good size room for her so she could enjoy it like she enjoys the one in Pottery Barn Kids.
What was interesting about her play last night, was that she had both a pink jewelry box and a purple jewelry box that she was playing with.
There are two beds in the display and she kept going back and forth between the two.
She was trying to carry both boxes and I kept envisioning her dropping one and breaking the mirror inside, so I told her that she could only carry one. She chose the purple one and went over to the other bed.
I followed her over (ever hovering over the boxes to ensure they didn't get broken or damaged) and asked Kylie "Is purple your favorite one?" She replied "Yes" but then I noticed that the bedding was all in purple shades (on that bed, the other bed was in pinks) so I asked Kylie "Is it your favorite because the bed is purple?" and she replied "Yes"
... so, moral of the story is that purple is not necessarily her favorite, but matching the surface that she is on, is really important. (light bulb moment!)
After about 45 minutes of watching the ballerinas, we moved on to the books and Kylie became fascinated with "Fancy Nancy and the Mermaid Ballet"
Here she is reading the Fancy Nancy book on yet another Pottery Barn Bed!
(I think this book will go on the Santa wish list too)
