It’s the perfect gift….For you and your daughter! For your sister (sister-in-law) and your niece! For your mom and her granddaughter! The possibilities are endless and endlessly adorably fun!  We love the bright pink and gold combo for the little ones.  They’re not outrageously expensive and if the girl’s chain breaks or gets lost it’s definitely not tragic.
