Several weeks ago I received an email from a mother named Julie who told me about her daughter Ally, who at the age of 8, drew a line of very diverse and adorable guardian angels. 3 years later, Ally and her parents launched Custard ‘N Jelly, a play on “custodi angeli” which is how you say guardian angel in Italian. Custard ‘N Jelly is a line of 7 guardian angel buddies. The angels are a part of GARD, Guardian Angel Rainbow Division, a special task force of guardian angels. Each angel has training and a special skill. Each angel also has an emotional strength and pledges to watch over it’s young owner. Even more, they are affiliated with 3 A+ rated children’s charities. With every purchase, a donation is made to one of the 3 and the child gets to choose which one! Time.com named Custard ‘N Jelly one of the “15 smartest toys for young geniuses of 2011,″ and they were just awarded ‘Top Toy” in the soft toy category by Creative Child Magazine.
I thought it was a great story and since my daughter, Alexandra’s nickname is Allie, I chose Ally as my Guardian Angel to review. The doll is very colorful and cute and comes with a carabiner that will allow a child to attach it to a backpack so their Guardian Angel is always close. The Website also has a creative doll outfitter interface where kids can choose one of the dolls and design outfits for them. They also have a link to a free app of the doll outfitter that you can download to your iPad, iPad 2, iPhone, and iPod Touch.
If you are looking for a cute doll, created by a child to remind us of our Guardian Angels who are watching over us, that also gives back to kids in need, then you need to check out Custard ‘N Jelly. What a great way to tell that someone special we love them and for them to always have a special friend to remind them of that love and protection from above.
