2014-2015 Fashion Toys That Your Little Fashionista Would Love
Most of the following three fashion toys are perfect as go-to travel sets, as the portfolios allow kiddos to take their designing ideas anywhere. The only limits to these toys are your cutie’s own imagination and creative flow.
My picks among the best fashion toys this year are:
Fashion Angels Sticker Stylist
There is so much color in this set!
Fashion Angels are known for their fashion-fantastic trends and unique, vivacious styles. This is a portfolio of fabric samples, style boards, and garment swatches, and there are over 700 stickers that can go toward accessorizing, patterning, and designing fashionable artwork.
There are several pre-drawn models per page, making it easy to model fashions after the creative process is completed. Furthermore, because there are so many stickers and design options, kiddos can draw their own models and accessorize on separate sheets of paper when they have exhausted their options for existing models in their portfolio.
Monster High Draculaura Doll
As the daughter of Dracula – Draculaura has a fashionable, trendy, ghoulish image to uphold and a creepy reputation to protect.
Her beautiful hair is lengthy in black with striped streaks of neon pink, and she dons a super-cute ensemble of a mini-skirt, Victorian blouse, and knee-high, lace-up boots.
This ghoul is a fashion-fabulous icon for her peers at Monster High – and she knows it! She comes with several awesome accessories, including a personal journal, pet bat, hairbrush, and petite umbrella/parasol.
Melissa and Doug Fashion Design Activity Kit
Sketch-rubbing is an old-school method of transferring an image onto paper, and the concept of this set has been around for at least 3 decades. However, the new, revamped version from Melissa and Doug is overflowing with brand-new templates for brand-new styles.
Kids can mix and match their favorite trends, place a sheet of tracing paper over the transfer station, and rub the new image onto the paper with a few colored pencils. The process takes less than 2 minutes, and youngsters can color or pattern their designs when they’re done.
