Friendship wins at Argos
BFFs Aaliyah and Meredith brought to life in toy form with custom DesignaFriends dolls
Best friends Aaliyah and Meredith have beaten thousands of children throughout the country to be named DesignaFriend’s Best Friends of the Year 2017.
Aaliyah and Meredith both entered the competition hosted by DesignaFriend, the range of fashion dolls sold exclusively through Argos.
Writing in to explain what makes their friendship so special, they impressed the judges with their inspiring letters describing their nine-year long friendship, complete with drawings of each other. As part of their prize, Aaliyah and Meredith had dolls designed to look identical to them, which are now on sale exclusively at Argos as part of the DesignaFriend doll range.
Aaliyah said: “We loved meeting our dolls, they look so much like us! We loved going to London to have our photographs taken and still can’t believe we have had mini-me dolls made of us!”
Meredith said: “Aaliyah and I have been friends for forever, she means the whole world to me and knows me more than my mum! We always do stuff together as a team; she is the master at building dens, acting and dancing, and now with our DesignaFriend dolls we can have even better adventures. We’ll be best friends forever.”
DesignaFriend includes a whole range of dolls, each with her own individual look and style. There is an extensive range of outfits and accessories available that can be mixed and matched for hours of styling fun and all dolls are presented in beautiful gift boxes with child-size charm bracelets.
Jackie Donnelly, Brand Manager for DesignaFriend said: “Meredith and Aaliyah have such a fantastic friendship and their tight bond shines through in their wonderful letters. They are a team of two, supporting each other at every step of their lives so far; it was such a wonderful thing for the judges to see. DesignaFriend is thrilled to crown them the UK’s Best Friends of the Year, and we really enjoyed creating their identical dolls to accompany them on their future adventures”.
The brand new Aaliyah and Meredith BFF dolls are available online and from Argos stores.
