4. Melissa & Doug Fashion Design Activity Kit ($15.99)
(Ages 4 and up)
Kids who grew up in the 80’s (like me) will no doubt remember this innovative gem of a toy—a series of plates featuring fashion designs that you could put together to create a look, place under a sheet of paper, and then use a crayon, rubbing your way to high fashion. Once rubbed onto paper, the designs could then be colored or otherwise embellished. Luckily, Melissa & Doug have brought this treasure back and made it available to a new generation of little fashionistas.
