My name is Lily-Sue, but my mummy calls me Munchkin (or 'Munch' for short!) I am 8 years old, and this is where my mummy will help me write all about all the fun things we do together. I hope you enjoy reading about the adventures of my mummy and me, Munchkin, with the occasional appearance from the siblings - Beastie and Plumlet.

The Summer of Steffi!

Introducing Steffi Love ... 
The Real Life Doll!

Anyone that knows Munchkin will know she is a girly girl through and through. From the inside out, she is pink, sparkly and soft, and when she falls and grazes her knees, she bleeds glitter! She loves dolls, she loves dancing and she loves wearing pretty clothes. So you can probably understand how excited she was when she heard about Steffi Love!

Most people know exactly who Steffi Love is. For those who don’t she is a fashion doll loved by millions of girls around the world. Now 21 years old Steffi has since sold more than 200 million dolls globally. First introduced to the UK in the 1990s millions of Steffi dolls have been loved by British children and she is currently in the top ten of the most popular dolls for girls. 

This year is a milestone for Steffi – for the first time ever she will become a real life girl. Former X-Factor contestant, pop singer, fashionista and lead vocalist of hit girl band The Dolly Rockers Sophie King has been chosen to play the role of Steffi Love. Sophie has the perfect mix of looks, personality and sparkle to bring to life one of the world’s best-loved dolls. She’s a natural! 

This summer will also see the launch of the first ever Steffi Love single! A perfect summer pop song ‘Real Good Time’ has been written and produced by non other than Ray Hedges – the creative talent behind 7 number one UK singles with acts such as Boyzone and B*Witched and more than 60 top 20 hits around the world. During his career Ray has worked with Take That, Tom Jones, Bryan Adams, Boy George, Liberty X and Dizzee Rascal to name but a few. Fancy a look? The first single is now available for public viewing and will be released tomorrow! Here's a snippet ...

Munch has been dancing around to this ... a lot! It's catchy, it's happy and it is quite clearly appealing to its young audience! I keep hearing,

"I'm going to dance to it again, mummy, but first I need my pink sparkly shoes ... my tutu ... my tiara ... my bracelets ... my PINK THINGS!!"

If you like the sound of it, you can see the whole video and listen to the full single over on You Tube - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=skEtWqUAENE

Ray has also crafted 4 more singles for Steffi that will be released every month to the end of the year and will be available to buy from iTunes. 

So sit back and watch this space. You’ll soon be seeing Steffi EVERYWHERE. It’s going to be the summer of Steffi Love!
