As a Grama and a mom, I know how important pretend play is. My daughter loved to take her grandmother’s makeup and put it on her face, she was about 3 or 4 year old! LOL She also loved dressing up in play heals and a fur shawl and pretend she was on a date! LOL I was so excited to have found Great Pretenders Dress Up company, to get some dress up clothes for my granddaughter.
Great Pretenders was founded by a mom with a vision to come up with creative, pretend-play toys that would light up any child’s imagination. Fast forward; her endeavors transcended into a vastly successful dress-up and costume business which manufactures award-winning toys – an innovative leader in the pretend-play market for children.
At Great Pretenders, it is believed that “dress-up” is so much more than just putting on a costume, as Oppenheim Toy Portfolio says:
“Pretend play is not just great fun. It’s the way kids develop imagination and creative thinking skills and try out being big and powerful. Pretending also brings the world down to the child’s size and understanding. It’s a way to develop communication skills and an outlet for expressing feelings and fears.”
We were excited to have the opportunity to team up with the kind folks over at Great Pretenders, who sent a very special surprise for a special little girl, who is starting to love to play dress up. I can’t wait for her to unwrap these for Christmas. One is going home with her, and the other is staying at Grama’s so we can pretend play together when she spends the night 🙂
All of the Great Pretenders Dress up clothing are handmade. Available for Canada and US residents.
I received the Ice Crystal Queen Skirt. Looks like something Elsa from Frozen would wear and my daughter wanted something like that for her for dance class, well, I felt accomplished in getting that for her.
We also received the Crystal Ice Queen Reversible Apron and Mermaid!

I’m a Gramma to a beautiful, funny, smart little girl who was born in July of 2014. She’s the joy of my family and I’m so very proud to be a gramma (an alternate spelling for grandma)! I am a coffee, music, movie and outdoor lover! I love festivals and concerts. Spending time with my family is the best time in my life. I love my blogging job and all it has given me.
