Precious Girls Club Giveaway

Recent research shows that 78% of moms feel that the majority of dolls, games, shows and websites targeted at little girls are too sexy or inappropriate for their daughters. The majority of moms surveyed are also turned off by apparel and accessories that imitate adult clothing and popular culture, with 79% stating that they wouldn't buy such items for their kids. According to the survey*, 93% of moms wish there were more positive role models and play options for young girls today.

Precious Moments®, the gift company known for their inspirational figurines and products, is launching a new product line and an interactive virtual world website for girls 4-8 years old. This new concept is called the Precious Girls Club and is a virtual world that inspires, enriches and encourages that all too brief moment in a girl's life journey: being a precious little girl. The Precious Girls Club will feature wholesome age-appropriate characters. The website, http://www.preciousgirlsclub.com/, will launch on September 1st. Screenshots of the virtual world are included with this packet. Images of associated charms and charm bracelets are available upon request.

The virtual world website will offer games, quests, and virtual charms that reward good behavior in the virtual world, as well as in the external world. Parents will be able to go online and reward their girls with an online helpful charm, for example, when they have helped with household chores. These charms will unlock extra points online, thus providing a fun reward to reinforce positive offline behavior. The site will also provide tools to help girls form their own Precious Girls Clubs in the offline world. To visit the Precious Girls Club site, go to http://www.preciousgirlsclub.com/ beginning September 1.

There is also a chapter book series that goes along with the Precious Girls Club featuring the wholesome, age-appropriate characters in a variety of scenarios. A sample of the book is included in this packet. The book will be available in select gift & specialty stores beginning September 1.

Precious Moments has also created a website designed to connect mothers of like-minded beliefs and morals. The website is live now at http://www.preciousmoms.com/ and features celebration planning tools, inspirational messages and advice from real world like-minded moms. Visitors to the site will be able to download invitations and recipes, send blessings to their loved ones and interact with mothers across the globe. Many well-known "mom bloggers" have teamed up with Precious Moments® to help mothers chronicle the precious moments in their own lives. These contributors are the authorities on subjects from expanding children's dietary horizons to keeping a positive outlook while juggling work and family. *According to research conducted by BSM Media, a marketing firm in Ft. Lauderdale that specializes in marketing to moms, in May 2008.

Hi, I love the whole concept behind
the "Precious Girls Club!" Girls of a younger age do need to know that being and looking wholesome is okay!
The site has fun games and learning activities. Please enter me in your drawing. I have a niece that could benefit from this idea. Many thanks, Cindi

I am really crafty myself, so loved all of the craft section, but the best was the summer butterflies.

I like the craft section and that the characters look nothing like the Bratz dolls.

What a cute site! I've always liked the Precious Moments line, and it's no surprise they came up with something like this. It's great to see a girl site filled with age-appropriate and non-sexualized material!

I want to introduce this site to my granddaughter. What a great site for a young girl. She loves crafts so will probably want grandma to do them also. And of course everyone loves game areas.
