Cracker Barrel’s New “Interactive” Butterflies Dolls and Giveaway

Batteries are not included, or necessary, for Cracker Barrel Old Country Store’s new interactive dolls. These new rag dolls, called Butterflies, rely on something even more powerful than positive or negative ions to be interactive; they need to be hugged, tucked into bed and will keep all of a child’s sweet secrets. Reminiscent of days gone by with an updated twist, these soft, cuddly 15-inch dolls are powered by a child’s imagination.

I received “Maria” (seen above) from the new doll collection for review.  Maria reminded me of the dolls I owned growing up which were super soft, huggable and cute!  You know, the type of doll little girls want to snuggle up with at night and carry around everywhere she goes.  Maria came with a flash drive around her neck (on a ribbon, like a necklace) that included pictures of herself and friends, which was a neat feature.

I really appreciate the “interactive” concept that Cracker Barrel is going for with this collection, especially during a time when most toys on the market are computerized or battery-operated. The Butterflies Dolls rely on imagination only, which is something that our children have lost over the years. I am grateful for the simplicity.

The Butterflies Dolls will be available November 1, 2011 exclusively in over 600 Cracker Barrel Old Country Store locations. Eight different huggable dolls will come complete with their own story, a unique outfit and an embroidered butterfly on the heart. The launch of the eight dolls includes a ballerina, a princess, a cheerleader, schoolgirl, slumber party friend, horse lover, farm girl, and mother’s helper. Each comes in a uniquely-designed box with the doll’s personal story on it. The 15-inch huggable doll weighs approximately six ounces and is surface washable. Dolls are priced at an affordable $19.99. Additional clothes and accessories for both the dolls and girls age two to six will be available for purchase at all Cracker Barrel Old Country Store locations as well.
