Dolls With Makeup Removed And Clothes Changed Have Become Viral

Dolls With Makeup Removed And Clothes Changed Have Become Viral

Sonia, the creator of Tree Change Dolls from Tasmania, didn’t expect that she would cause such a change and make people rethink what kind of dolls they are buying for their children.

This woman likes crafting – she missed her childhood dolls and she decided to make them again. However, what is magnificent about this act is that she used popular Bratz dolls to bring her childhood back. By using alcohol, she took off the makeup and drew their faces again. This time, the dolls didn’t have a lot of makeup, they didn’t have those big eyes and lips, but they looked younger and more natural. Moreover, she changed their clothes and put them in a whole different surrounding.

A hobby that became a brand

When Bratz dolls emerged, everyone got crazy about them and Barbie dolls fell to second place. Bratz were different because of a lot of makeup, a thin body and a big head. However, it was only when one women who missed the nice dolls from her childhood transformed them into beautiful, natural dolls, that people noticed what real beauty is. Because of their natural look and influence on the toy market, Tree Change Dolls became viral.

Discarded dolls are again in demand

Sonia, the creator of the Tree Change Dolls, used the discarded dolls from the tip shops and transformed them into beautiful and down-to-earth dolls. At first, she didn’t want to make any statement, she just wanted to express her creativity through crafting and re-doing second hand dolls.

    Before you throw away something, think about whether you can reuse it and, with a little creativity, give it a brand new look. It will not only save you money, but also, you might create something magnificent and, who knows, maybe you go viral.

    How much do dolls influence our children?

    It seems like kids’ toys are promoting a kind of superficial beauty to little girls. Naturally, every girl thinks of her doll as a friend and wants to be like her. They start thinking that wearing makeup is the only way to look beautiful. Moreover, a lot of makeup is not enough for the “glam look”, they also need to be super thin in order to reach perfection. As girls start thinking this way, they lose their individuality and just blend in with other girls. They dress alike, act alike and even think alike. There is no uniqueness in any of them.

    The beauty of Tree Change Dolls lies in their simplicity and originality. They are all different, and special in their own way – just like all little girls around the world. These dolls teach girls not only to be unique and natural, but also to enjoy their childhood and to remain a child for as long as they can. These dolls unintentionally influence people to fight the beauty standards implemented by toy manufacturers.

    Clothes and surrounding suitable for children

    Today’s popular dolls usually wear clothes that are not suitable for children, such as tops and short skirts, and because of that, they look like they are really older. Some people even call them “trashy” and don’t allow their children to play with them. The Tree Change Dolls put a stop to the debate on the hypersexualization of dolls, because they show that the natural look is better and it positively influences young girls. However, don’t forget that the look of a doll depends on its manufacturers.

      Dolls with knitted clothes in natural surroundings present the beauty of childhood. Also, dolls playing in the garden show what kids should do – playing in natural surroundings. Knitted pieces of clothes are something that little girls could wear too, which really makes girls relate to them.

      Makeup doesn’t make us beautiful

      Girls like playing with makeup, however, they shouldn’t be presented with dolls that wear too much make up, and have unrealistic and unproportioned face features. This sends a wrong message to children on how they should look and what is considered as beautiful.

        Girls should know that they are beautiful just the way they are. The blonde doll which was transformed into a freckled ginger doll shows that one regular doll can become unique. This uniqueness comes from natural beauty, which we might end up forgetting how special it really is.

          Tree Change Dolls are surely making a statement and influencing the toy market.

          Are Bratz dolls to be forgotten?

          Bratz dolls are known for their look and that is something that makes them special among other dolls and, as much as some people don’t like them, we mustn’t forget that the beauty is in the eye of the beholder. They might present wrong standards when it comes to clothing and appearance, however, they are the product of someone’s creativity and there are people who like them. As tastes shouldn’t be discussed, I just want to state that the Tree Change Dolls are an alternative to the doll market and children should choose what they like. If there are more options to choose from, then it means that all styles are accepted.

          As girls relate to their dolls, toy manufacturers might want to consider making proportional and more down-to-earth dolls, which will positively influence young generations. Girls should feel free to express themselves without the fear of not satisfying the standards that are made up by our own society.

          Success In Reaching Goals Is Determined By Mindset

          Success In Reaching Goals Is Determined By Mindset

          What do you think it takes to achieve your goals? Hard work? Lots of actions? While these are paramount to becoming successful in reaching our goals, neither of these are possible without a positive mindset.

          As humans, we naturally tend to lean towards a negative outlook when it comes to our hopes and dreams. We are prone to believing that we have limitations either from within ourselves or from external forces keeping us from truly getting to where we want to be in life. Our tendency to think that we’ll “believe it when we see it” suggests that our mindsets are focused on our goals not really being attainable until they’ve been achieved. The problem with this is that this common mindset fuels our limiting beliefs and shows a lack of faith in ourselves.

          The Success Mindset

          Success in achieving our goals comes down to a ‘success mindset’. Successful mindsets are those focused on victory, based on positive mental attitudes, empowering inclinations and good habits. Acquiring a success mindset is the sure-fire way to dramatically increase your chance to achieve your goals.

          The idea that achieving our goals comes down to our habits and actions is actually a typical type of mindset that misses a crucial point; that our mindset is, in fact, the determiner of our energy and what actions we take. A negative mindset will tend to create negative actions and similarly if we have a mindset that will only set into action once we see ‘proof’ that our goals are achievable, then the road will be much longer and arduous. This is why, instead of thinking “I’ll believe it when I see it”, a success mindset will think “I’ll see it when I believe it.”

          The Placebo Effect and What It Shows Us About The Power of Mindset

          The placebo effect is a perfect example of how mindset really can be powerful. In scientific trials, a group of participants were told they received medication that will heal an ailment but were actually given a sugar pill that does nothing (the placebo). Yet after the trial the participants believed it’s had a positive effect – sometimes even cured their ailment even though nothing has changed. This is the power of mindset.

          How do we apply this to our goals? Well, when we set goals and dreams how often do we really believe they’ll come to fruition? Have absolute faith that they can be achieved? Have a complete unwavering expectation? Most of us don’t because we hold on to negative mindsets and limiting beliefs about ourselves that stop us from fully believing we are capable or that it’s at all possible. We tend to listen to the opinions of others despite them misaligning with our own or bow to societal pressures that make us believe we should think and act a certain way. There are many reasons why we possess these types of mindsets but a success mindset can be achieved.

          How To Create a Success Mindset

          People with success mindsets have a particular way of perceiving things. They have positive outlooks and are able to put faith fully in their ability to succeed. With that in mind, here are a few ways that can turn a negative mindset into a successful one.

          1. A Success Mindset Comes From a Growth Mindset

          How does a mindset even manifest itself? It comes from the way you talk to yourself in the privacy of your own head. Realising this will go a long way towards noticing how you speak to yourself and others around you. If it’s mainly negative language you use when you talk about your goals and aspirations then this is an example of a fixed mindset.

          A negative mindset brings with it a huge number of limiting beliefs. It creates a fixed mindset – one that can’t see beyond it’s own limitations. A growth mindset sees these limitations and looks beyond them – it finds ways to overcome obstacles and believes that this will result in success. When you think of your goal, a fixed mindset may think “what if I fail?” A growth mindset would look at the same goal and think “failures happen but that doesn’t mean I won’t be successful.”

          There’s a lot of power in changing your perspective.

          2. Look For The Successes

          It’s really important to get your mind focused on positive aspects of your goal. Finding inspiration through others can be really uplifting and keep you on track with developing your success mindset; reinforcing your belief that your dreams can be achieved. Find people that you can talk with about how they achieved their goals and seek out and surround yourself with positive people. This is crucial if you’re learning to develop a positive mindset.

          3. Eliminate Negativity

          You can come up against a lot of negativity sometimes either through other people or within yourself. Understanding that other people’s negative opinions are created through their own fears and limiting beliefs will go a long way in sustaining your success mindset. But for a lot of us, negative chatter can come from within and these usually manifest as negative words such as can’t, won’t, shouldn’t. Sometimes, when we think of how we’re going to achieve our goals, statements in our minds come out as negative absolutes: ‘It never works out for me’ or ‘I always fail.’

          Advertising

          When you notice these coming up you need to turn them around with ‘It always works out for me!’ and ‘I never fail!’ The trick is to believe it no matter what’s happened in the past. Remember that every new day is a clean slate and for you to adjust your mindset.

          4. Create a Vision

          Envisioning your end goal and seeing it in your mind is an important trait of a success mindset. Allowing ourselves to imagine our success creates a powerful excitement that shouldn’t be underestimated. When our brain becomes excited at the thought of achieving our goals, we become more committed, work harder towards achieving it and more likely to do whatever it takes to make it happen.

          If this involves creating a vision board that you can look at to remind yourself every day then go for it. Small techniques like this go a long way in sustaining your success mindset and shouldn’t be dismissed.

          An Inspirational Story…

          For centuries experts said that running a mile in under 4 minutes was humanly impossible. On the 6th May 1954, Rodger Bannister did just that. As part of his training, Bannister relentlessly visualised the achievement, believing he could accomplish what everyone said wasn’t possible…and he did it.

          What’s more amazing is that, as soon as Bannister achieved the 4-minute mile, more and more people also achieved it. How was this possible after so many years of no one achieving it? Because in people’s minds it was suddenly possible – once people knew that it was achievable it created a mindset of success and now, after over fifty years since Bannister did the ‘impossible’, his record has been lowered by 17 seconds – the power of the success mindset!
