Breadcrumbz…Teaching Girls about Self Acceptance Through Fun Characters #Review #Giveaway





I am always trying to teach my daughter about Self confidence and Self acceptance. She will be 8 years old in about  8 weeks…and sometimes it seems like she is a Teenager already. She is very laid back, is not a risk taker at all and she always thinks about the consequences first that could be of the actions she wants to take. Personally, I love that about her, but sometimes her peers don’t understand why she is like that, and she has a hard time understanding why her peers aren’t like her.

I have found a WONDERFUL website called that teaches Self acceptance through fun characters. My daughter loves spending time on this website and she is learning from it. Their are 4 different characters, each one is unique, just like your child. When you go to the website and click on each character, it will tell you about them and send you to their room where you can find out really cool facts about their pets and things in their room. There are games to play and coloring sheets to print.  My daughter loves to tell me about all the cool facts she learns from these characters!


 Penelope loves school and learning. She wants to be a Professor or Inventor one day!



Rachel loves sports. The most important thing is to get into the game, and find a sport you love. 



Samantha would love to work in fashion design one day. Hang out with her to learn all of the latest fashion trendz.



Whitney (my daughter’s favorite) loves things that are all natural. She likes collecting leaves and loves flowers.

After your child is done learning fun facts and exploring the character rooms, have them head over to Trail Tails. They are blog type pages for each character. They are updated frequently and have little stories about what is going on with the characters. I love reading them with my daughter because she is understanding friends help each other in tough times, and always do your best. also has really cool products for kids! I was sent a package to review what the have to offer. It included an Activity book, T-shirt,  a Pop Inz charm bracelet and character charms. Also a really cute little burlap bag filled with “trail mix” which is included as a gift in each purchase.


Your child can pick what character they want on their T-shirt. My daughter likes Samantha the best, so she was thrilled with the shirt. The shirts are $19.99 each, and are available in sizes 6X-12.


She is loving the charm bracelet and all of the cool character charms. They are easy to pop in and out, and she has been mixing and matching! The bracelet retails for $2.99 and each set of charms is $4.99.

This is such a great site for girls to learn about friendships, self confidence and self acceptance. The games and activities are lots of fun, and your child will love to learn all of the cool facts. Check it out!!!

About Shannon Addison

Shannon Addison is a “work-at-home” mom, military spouse, and mother of two amazing girls. Her mother (who was a teacher for 25 years) inspired her to create a product line that would positively impact the lives of children.

Her mom believed that everyone is given a voice to use for whatever purpose each person intends to pursue. The challenge, she said, was finding a way to use your voice for good. For Shannon, this is her voice.

 Shannon’s Philosophy

Raising girls has provided a lot of insight about what lessons are important during the most critical growth years. Today there are a lot of products on the market that promote self-esteem, but not many that really target self-acceptance.

Throughout this journey with each of the Breadcrumbz, girls are not only shown how to acknowledge who they are with their own shortcomings or flaws, but are guided through a process that suggests how to embrace them and to celebrate the difference they make in their lives.

“I believe that true beauty exists in those things that differentiate us from everyone else. Through the process of developing self-acceptance, we gain empowerment…using the strengths that make each of us unique.”


Which character do you think your child would like the best?

    This is awesome for little girls! I will tell my SIL about this for my nieces 🙂

  2. I LOVE this! There are too many images out there teaching girls these days that they need to be a certain way and encouraging them to try to be sexy at 10. Girls need to be girls, and they need to accept themselves for who they are.
