The winner is comment #81: Denyse.

And what is Dot Girl?

From the site: “Our goal at Dot Girl First Period Products is that every girl has a positive first period experience and an empowered first step to womanhood. Terri and Kathy’s goal for the kit is to provide parents with the tools you need to explain the basics of menstruation to your daughters. And for the girls, they hope that having the kit will lessen their anxiety about their first period and instead turn it into a positive experience.”

My daughters are still too young to be thinking about their first periods but I do have a niece who had her very first period last month. Her Mom is a flight attendant who was away on a trip at the time and I think it would have been great if my niece had a Dot Girl kit at home for this very special occasion. Thankfully, Grandma was available to help but she’s now ready for next month with her cute little pink First Period Kit.

She really likes it because it looks just like a small pretty bag and no one would even guess what was in there. She can keep it in her school bag or locker and know that she’ll be prepared for the next time. The $23.99 kit contains:

  • The Dot Girl’s First Period Guide™, a 12-page booklet with answers to common questions
  • The Dot Girl’s Period Calendar™, a simple way for a girl to track her periods
  • One Ultra Thin Kotex® Pad With Wings upgraded item
  • Two Kotex® Lightdays® Panty Liners upgraded item
  • Kotex® product brochure (product claims only valid within the U.S.) new item
  • One store coupon for FREE Kotex® products (valid only within the U.S.) new item
  • Reusable Dot Girl™ Warm Pad, a heating pad handy for soothing cramps upgraded item
  • Scensibles™ Petite Pak (3 disposal bags inside) new item
  • Hand Wipes

This is a special and sometimes scary time in a girl’s life. Why not make things a little easier for her with a Dot Girl’s First Period Kit. They’ll thank you for it!

    We’ll be needing something like this in our house soon. I liked the book Period: A Girl’s Guide from Dot Girl. Thanks!

  3. Desert Songbird says:

    My soon-to-be 13yo hasn’t started yet, but she will any day now I’m sure. I thought the disposable panties were a good idea, especially with the unpredictability of those early months.

  4. Stacie says:

    I was just thinking that I need to talk to my daughter about getting her period ASAP and wanted to find a book to explain it better than I could. I love the book Period. A Girl’s Guide. Awesome giveaway thank you!

    We’ve talked about her period already and she thinks she ready for it. While I’m hoping we have a long wait for this, I keep seeing signs that make me think otherwise. YIKES!
    I liked the CC Girl Seamless Pull-Over Day Bra.

  9. Tanya Moyer says:

    Great kit idea! I have an 11 yo and this would be perfect for her! I love the books featured on the site: “Before She Gets Her Period” and “Period: A Girl’s Guide”. Both books sound very informational! Great giveaway - thanks for offering!

  11. cathy b says:

    wow, this is incredible… wish something like this was around when i grew up, or when my children were. But to have it available now for my granddaughters is such a blessing. I have a granddaughter who has been prementrual and moody for a year now and we expect her to get it any day. It would be great to win this for her. I am really really impressed also with what else I saw on the site. That $1 form every sale will go to help educate girls form central asia, and pakistan and afghanistan. You have no idea how hard it is for the girls there. I have friends who travel in that region and bring back photos and stories all the time. What a great way to practically give back, and to help educate and comfort girls all over the world…. Kudos to you Dot Girl!… I love the whole kit… but remembering what it was like myself and also hearing my granddaughter complain already of pre-cramps, I like the warming pad added to the kit and the little bags for the disposables.
