Project MC2 The Doll Who Knows Smart Is The New Cool - Christmas Present Giveaway (age 6+)

The Project MC2 doll isn't your usual children's fashion doll. She may have long hair and a hairbrush and care about her appearance, but she uses her brain too. The winner of this giveaway will win a Camryn doll, who comes complete with her own science experiment.


It's not a science experiment you might remember from school - it's way more cool. Camryn is a girl who skates, and what's more, she can put together her own board using her special blueprints.



You might not think of this as science, but it totally is, it'll help youngsters appreciate friction, speed, balance, how weight affects movement, how fastenings work, and much more. The blueprints themselves are also special - the writing and plans only appear when you wet the blueprints.

We reviewed the McKeyla Doll who comes complete with a lava lamp that you can make over and over again, and although we thought she was a bit too skinny and out-of-proportion, she is definitely the sort of doll my 15 year old would have loved when she was younger, and a great way to introduce something a bit clever and different to youngsters who might not usually try anything like that.


Project MC2 is also a fairly new TV show available on Netflix. Aimed mainly at young girls aged around 6-11 it aims to show that 'smart is the new cool', and the girls in the show use their brains and scientific knowledge to solve their cases.

The show and dolls are backed up by the Project MC2 website, where you can find out loads more information and take part in quizzes and activites, including some more science!

Project MC2 dolls are available now priced around £19.99 - £24.99. Each doll has a different experiment - Camryn has her skateboard, McKayla her lava lamp, Bryden has a glow stick, and Adrienne a volcano.

For your chance to win a Camryn Doll with Skateboard please enter using the Gleam form below. UK entries only, please see the terms and conditions at the bottom of the Gleam form. The giveaway will end at midnight November 30th in good time for Christmas delivery.
