Very imaginative and creative toy that will bring out the same in your child.
The Bottom Line
Children's imaginations grow from the simplest things. Wood, fabric, and their own creativity. I recommend these childrens products for any young child to broaden imagination, creativity, and motor skills.
At Thanksgiving time I had the pleasure of seeing my neices for the first time in months and I saw that they had these flat-board figurines that they were busy with as I tried to get their attention.
The only way I could get any attention was to join in and get imaginative along with them, otherwise they were too busy for me!
Let me tell you about the woodkins products:
Woodkins are the invention of Pamela Drakes award-winning toys that are as fun as they are simple to play with.
Acclaimed for their unique sandwich-board design, Pamela Drake's collection of wooden "dressable" dolls will give your child endless times of imaginative play. With a closet full of colorful fabrics and interchangeable magnetic faces, these kids let their imagination explore by creating new looks, new moods and new stories for their dolls every time they play.
Each set comes packaged in a vinyl tote, perfect for aspiring young fashion designers. This toy is recommended for ages 4 and up.
Here is just some of the different types of sets available.
Single Pal Sets:
Each of ten single pal sets includes four magnetic faces, eight pieces of fabric, and one sandwich-board doll in a carry tote. "Our Favorites," the original Woodkins pals, include Kirsty, Emily, Lizzy, Kimmy, Cody, Jenny, Kelly, Tiffany, Jeffrey and Ricky.
Single Deluxe Sets:
Making storytelling even more fun, each single set comes with a sandwich board painted with one of ten scenic top panels: Beach, Party, Sports, Travel, Ballerina, Mermaid, Fairy, Hawaiian Girl, Princess and Get Well. Each set's closet of fabrics goes along with its scene, with summery cotton swatches for the "Beach" set, glitzy fabric for the "Party" set, and so on.
Double Deluxe Sets:
Two sets in one, each double deluxe set includes two sandwich-board dolls, two separate sets of fabric and eight interchangeable magnetic faces carried in a backpack tote. Six themes round out the line, including: Cinderella, Princess & The Frog, Fairy Tales, two Bride & Bridesmaid variations, and Bride & Groom.
Enhancing the play value of Woodkins Pals and Cousins, accessory packs in four themes-Sports, Ballet, Party and Beach-include 10 different fabrics and a themed scenery for the Single Pal sandwich-boards. A bundle of 30 fabrics is provided.
Children's imaginations grow from the simplest things. Wood, fabric, and their own creativity.
All that a junior designer could require to dress a wooden model — four outfits, patterns, fabric, sequins, buttons, rhinestones, and more — comes in this fashionable kit. Just lift the lid and rearrange the ensembles for a brand-new look. Male and African-American dolls are also available.
Suggested age: 8 - 14 years.
I recommend this product for any young child to broaden imagination, creativity, and motor skills.
