Our GenerationWith baseball season in full-swing, our girls have been getting back into the spirit of things by making their own fun here at Rock Father HQ. For us, the baseball bug really set in last year when I coached Addie's Pee-Wee Baseball Team, and while she's not playing ball in an organized league this year, the game is still all around us. Taking that vibe into the world of her 18" dolls is the new Our Generation "Hit A Homerun" Fashion Set from Battat, available exclusively at Target as part of their extensive Our Generation collection of dolls and accessories. This well-crafted uniform (call it "baseball" or "softball") looks and feels like the real thing, with a button-down jersey, pants, socks, a pair of cleats, a bat and ball. 

Hit A Homerun!

Since the "Hit A Homerun" Fashion Set is shipped to stores as part of an assortment, it may be hard to find, so the best thing to do is grab it online from TARGET.com (it's been in-and-out of stock recently), or keep checking your local Target store. With a suggested price of just $12.99, it's really a great deal that is in-step with the Our Generation mission of keeping their dolls and fashions affordable for all. There are some third-party sellers popping up with this elsewhere in the $30 range, so beware of that. And, when you buy Our Generation products directly from Target, you're helping support Free the Children...

"For every Our Generation doll, outfit or accessory you buy, a portion of sales goes to Free The Children's Power of a Girl Initiative to help provide girls in developing countries an education––the most powerful tool in the world for escaping poverty."

Approved by The Rock Daughters and The Rock Father, and highly-recommended.
