BreadCrumbz has a mission of teaching girls between the ages of 6 and 12 years old about the value of self-acceptance. Shannon created the BreadCrumbz brand, which follows the lives and interests of four Crumbz characters, after observing the negative undertones present in the interactions her girls and their friends had with each other at school. The four Crumbz characters – Samantha Sourdough, Rachel Rye, Whitney Wheat, and Penelope Pumpernickel – each have a unique personality and different interests. Despite their differences, however, the Crumbz all encourage girls to find out what it is they like to do and where their interests lie, and to stay true to themselves in all situations.
BreadCrumbz fans can follow each of the Crumbz characters through a series of Trail Tales posted to the company’s website. Each Trail Tail story focuses on one Crumbz character and her world, incorporating valuable messages like “Confidence is the best accessory” or “Sometimes friends are the best medicine”. New Trail Tales are posted to the BreadCrumbz site regularly, providing Crumbz fans with plenty of engaging and thoughtful content.
We received some Breadcrumbz products at no cost in exchange for an honest review
(Reviewed by co blogger Jenni and her beautiful daughter Alexandria!)
Being a girl growing up is hard. There are so many negative influences out there. I happy to see there is something positive that I can use as a teaching material for my young daughter and she can carry something with her to be reminded of that. We really enjoyed our order from breadcrumbz. It provided and teaching tool for my daughter and I myself to help remind her how strong, smart, beautiful, and caring she is.
With our order we got a wonderful bracelet that has multiple button attachments that my daughter can change out however she wishes. Each character has a theme, personality, and message to convey. My daughter especially likes the Penelope Pumpernickel. The buttons have a school theme and my daughters first year of kindergarten has begun so she can easily identify with her.
The quality of the product was very well made. The bracelet fit my daughter small wrist and was easy to snap on and off but not to the point where it might fall off while she is wearing it. The button easily snap on and off as well.
Included with our order we received a very cute sack with a heart shaped stone, a beautiful quote, a wood circle, and a little box of nerds candy to "sweeten" the trail mix. Also included was a activity book my daughter loves.
We are very pleased with our order. We are so happy to have a positive way to reinforce what we teach our daughter everyday. Thank you breadcrumbz.
