Name: Wedding Day Kits for Children
Company: PAPER POSIE
Age: All Ages
Price: $8.95
Category: Creative Activities

What Is It?
This wedding day kit contains an assortment of items that will keep your little one busy during your special day. The kit features wedding stickers, coloring postcards, memory card-photo frame, a temporary tattoo, non-toxic crayons, flavored lip balm, an unbreakable mirror, a photo frame, and a couple other fun activities. The wedding day kit comes in a fun plastic package with a handle for easy carrying purposes.

What We Thought
This was a fun and innovative activity kit that makes the children feel like they are a part of the wedding. All of the items are safe for children, which is one less thing that the bride and her party have to worry about. The “Wedding Scavenger Hunt” that is included in the kit allows the children to stay active. The items in the hunt can be found at every wedding. The plastic carrying case serves as a goodie bag that the children can tote around with them throughout the wedding. These kits are designed to keep the children busy with fun-filled activities but, more important, it makes the children feel more like they are a part of the wedding.

Why They’ll Want It
This is a great kit for brides and grooms that will have children attending the most important day of their lives. The children will particularly love the fact that there are so many activities included in the kit that can be done together with the other children. — Melvin Chua, 6/12/08

Name: Simplymini Fashion Stickers Variety Set
Company: AK TOY COMPANY INC.
Age: 5-10
Price: $15.99
Category: Creative Activities

What Is It?
These press-and-peel vinyl animé-styled stickers let little girls try out fashion and hairstyles in a big (mini) way. The reusable teeny-tiny clothing and shoes are dusted with glitter for extra pizzazz. The mini characters range from babies to big girls, and some even have their own pets. A charm, complete with an assortment of puffy stickers to decorate it, is also included. This collectible series of fashion books and stickers is produced in limited quantities.

What We Thought
Simplymini is a simple way to keep mini girls entertained for hours. Whether playing alone in the car or with friends during recess, kids will have fun swapping out hairstyles, skirts, shirts, dresses and boots just by peeling and sticking. The styles are fun, colorful and fancy enough for the pickiest fashionista.

Why They’ll Want It
This reviewer played with an included sample and had no good reason for opening and playing with the full-sized product, but nevertheless found it irresistible. Simplymini would make a great birthday gift, travel gift, get-well soon gift, stock stuffer, etc., etc. for just about any little (or big) girl who likes pretty clothes and lots of choices. — Alison Marek 2/4/08

Name: Playful Chef
Company: PLAYFUL LIFE
Age: 3 and up
Price: $39.99
Category: Creative Activities

What Is It?
The cooking set includes kid-sized versions of real chef utensils, including a mixing bowl, baking pan, whisk, measuring cups, measuring spoons and more — all packaged in a little backpack. A denim apron, a three-minute timer and bright orange, plastic safety scissors are also included.

What We Thought
The set is very well thought out, emphasizing parent-child bonding, safety, fun, healthy habits and cooking before children even learn to read! Color-coded measuring spoons and cups allow pre-readers to join the fun, while recipe cards detail preparation instructions on one side and ten steps to healthy eating on the other. The cards even include quotes that parents can repeat to their kids, such as “You want to take good care of your special tools, so we can use them again”!

Why They’ll Want It
Kids will love feeling like real chefs with these miniaturized, but fully functional utensils that fit perfectly in their little hands. The tool belt apron itself is absolutely amazing, with its adorable design and adjustable straps (which will allow kids to continue using the apron as they grow). After kids are done cooking and cleaning, they can neatly place the utensils and apron back into the backpack and take it with them anywhere. — Sivhour Sim, 11-1-07

Name: Face Painting Kit
Company: SNAZAROO
Age: 3 and up
Price: $14.99
Category: Creative Activities

What Is It?
Children are such clowns sometimes. With Snazaroo´s (ToyDirectory) Face Painting Kit, kids can become everything from a Dalmatian pup to a ferocious striped tiger. The kit comes with an 8-color palette, face painting brush and sponge, and a face-painting guide. For those who like the whole package, there is also Snazaroo Zoo ($12.95) by Janis Bullis that gives face-painting ideas along with costume designs.

What We Thought
This is a necessary kit to have for Halloween and all other costume parties. The paint is easy to apply and stays on until washed off with mild soap and water. The kit also comes with enough paint for 50 different faces so that young ones can explore all the animals, bugs and monsters that their imaginations create.

Why They´ll Want It
All children love to dress up, and Snazaroo´s Face Painting Kit makes any costume complete.
