I love everything about it and am so happy I happened upon this site. I recently opened a children’s museum in New Market, MD and am eager for spring so my family and I can get started on a play space in our back yard. It’s inspiring to see what you’ve created and I hope to employ a lot of the same concepts. Thank you! Sincerely, Ellen

Comment on Does Monster High make you nostalgic for Bratz? by Raygirl http://www.empoweredbyplay.org/2011/03/1566/comment-page-1/#comment-6276 Thu, 14 Nov 2013 22:45:44 +0000 http://www.empoweredbyplay.org/?p=1566#comment-6276 People don’t realize this but MH was just a way for the arrogant company Mattel to compete with the Bratz return in 2010. But people want to talk about how MH has “morals”. Right, but the people behind the doll line are money making giants that don’t respect other companies work of art. They could not help but hate on MGAE’s originality. They were the ones who turned Carter Bryant’s idea of having the dolls away and now people want to say MH is good for kids? So sad how Mattel can easily manipulate idiotic people into feeding into their arrogance. Way to go morons of the world. :/

MGAE are the ones who REALLY had good intentions. They wanted to give girls dolls they could really relate to. Mattel’s purpose in making MH was not originally to relate to girls but to beat MGAE’s success back in 2010 when Bratz was making a return. So really who are the better dolls? Bratz was made for us. MH was made for Mattel’s success.In fact Bratz line was inspired by Isaac Larian’s daughter and her friends. MH was an obvious way to keep up with the growing “emo-gothic” subculture that is popular today. Its sad people are gullible and can’t see through all of that.

Comment on Playful learning is more than just Sight Word BINGO by Mark http://www.empoweredbyplay.org/2010/01/playful-learning-is-more-than-just-sight-word-bingo/comment-page-1/#comment-6232 Mon, 26 Aug 2013 13:25:13 +0000 http://www.empoweredbyplay.org/?p=294#comment-6232 I believe in learning by playing and especially for really young kids.

Really hope the day will NOT come when our kids are completely robbed of the joy of playing in schools. At least I still have great memories of how fun school was.

Bratz look…..so stupid and dead.moxie girlz look like kids.not teens who dress weirdly and try to be sexy..I think barbie a are fine but their company supports abortion and other Evil (yes I mean that) stuff.i must say though, some of the bratz clothes are so cool.i was inspired by bratz(btw they are made after real ppl who have the last name brat)to dress cooler.oh,and my parents don’t let me wear pants unless is under a skirt and I can’t wear skirts above my knee unless I have pants under..
I dress like:
A short denim skirt
Jean leggings under
Tank with sweater over
Almost to the knee socks over leggings
Uggs
One arm warmer
5 gold bangles
She’ll bracelet
BFF bracelet
Watch

IS THAT SLUTTY PEOPLE?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

I actually managed to do a full two weeks of 0 TV for the family and my daughters earlier this year in March. Was aiming for the whole month but just didn’t make it.
