Shining Light Dolls: GIVEAWAY!

Shining Light Dolls

So, the Holy Father is consecrating the WORLD to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on Sunday October 13, promoting devotion to our Lady. I thought that this was as good a time as any to host my Shining Light Dolls Giveaway, graciously made possible by my new friend Chantal!

FOUR winners are going to win TWO Shining Light Dolls!!


Aren’t these Shining Light Dolls  awesome?

They are 3.5″ tall and made of rotocast vinyl: safe, durable, unbreakable and no removable parts!

They are perfect for inspiring devotion to Our Lady in our kids with their little praying faces and posture and contemporary styling that still manages to reflect the traditional images of the Blessed Mother.

“I wanted the dolls to be in line with contemporary graphic art styles, so that kids (and adults) could look at them and feel like they “fit” into the current world.  It was really important to me to keep the dolls true to the traditional images (same outfits, same symbols, same colors) but make them modern, colorful and fresh so they’d be appealing to kid’s taste. “

shining light dolls giveaway at equipping catholic familiesThey are safe for babies, but really appropriate for all ages. Chantal keeps discovering new ways that the dolls are enjoyed as wonderful tools for evangelization:

“People are putting their favorite doll on their desk at work as a cheerful reminder of their faith and a great non-threatening way to evangelize coworkers; giving them to children to help them learn about the different Marian apparitions; and sending them to people in hospitals as an easy (small, unbreakable and easy to clean) and affordable way to let them know they are in their prayers.   And because the dolls are part of a series, we also have people from all age groups who are simply collecting them and keeping them in their homes.”

There are currently 11 Shining Light Dolls in the Virgin Mary Around the World Series

“… it was really important to me to emphasize the global nature of Catholicism- that Christ came for the world, and so Our Lady and the Saints come from every corner of the earth.”


GuadalupeEach Shining Light Doll comes in a clear plastic box with a nicely printed card with a prayer and biography and Feastday and Patroness information.

The Hail Mary and the Memorare are printed on the back for easy reference.

I know that my kids and Godchildren and many of my friends and family will enjoy collecting these little figures.  I suspect that they will hang out in our dollhouse, overlook my kids’ bedrooms, visit our family prayer altar, and decorate our dinner table on special Feastdays. They may even find themselves sitting on a chocolate cake from time to time….good thing they are safe and easy to  lick clean.

The SAINTS are coming as Shining Light Dolls too! Check out this awesome Mary and the Saints Printable!

Contest closes at midnight on Saturday October 18 at midnight!

  2. I love ALL of them!!

    • Me too! They are all adorable. I just purchased Our Lady Of Czestochowa and Our Lady of Guadalupe for a gift for our goddaughter, but when my girls saw them, now they want them too! I can’t wait to find Our Lady of Kibeho as I just finished reading about her.

  3. Our Lady of Fatima.

  4. Our Lady of Knock

  5. Our Lady of Guadalupe. These dolls are really sweet. My two year old is in love with the ones she has and cries anytime she can’t find her favorite “Mary baby.” She takes her everywhere and even sleeps with her.

  16. So adorable!

  23. I would love to win the Our Lady of Czestochowa, as my family I are were privileged to visit her shrine when we were living in Europe, and she is also shown holding the baby Jesus, and I am five weeks along with our newest little blessing (#6, plus two in Heaven). Being an older mom with two pregnancy losses already, I am dearly hoping to hold this little one in my arms as well as my heart!

  24. My favorite is Our Lady of Fatima. I love these dolls, they’re so cute! My daughter would love any of them. I can’t wait for the saints to come out!

  25. My favorite is Our Lady of Lourdes. I loved reading the story of Bernadette when I was a little girl.

  27. Robin High says:

    My favorite is definitely Our Lady of Guadalupe. Mexican missionary here. 🙂

  28. These are adorable! I love the Virgen of Guadalupe.

  29. Our Lady of Lourdes

    Thank you for entering me in this contest!

    God bless!

  31. My favorite Marian devotion is the rosary! I love all the Shining light dolls but I’m particularly like Our Lady of Lourdes ( my confirmation saint is St. Bernadette) and Our Lady of Fatima (my wedding anniversary is Oct 13th).

  32. Robin Blose says:

  35. I am a person that has trouble picking favorites, but I must say I have become most amazed with the Our Lady of Guadalupe apparition and the scapular sacramental from Our Lady in recent years.

    The Shining Light dolls are all so beautiful and I am thrilled to see the coming saint dolls. Out of the ones out already, I would like Our Lady of Guadalupe, Our Lady of Lourdes and Our Lady of Knock best.

  61. I would love to win Our Lady of Knock!

  62. While our Lady of Lourdes and Guadeloupe are favorites, OL Knock would be great for our St. Brigid’s Academy homeschool.
