Project Runway Fashion Design Light Box Set

Project Runway Fashion Design Light Box Set

Fall 2010 Toys
Ages: 8 & Up
Price: $24.99

This is a fun tie-in to the "Project Runway" TV show, giving wannabe fashion designers the full runway experience. Spin the wheel and find out your fashion challenge, then use the included pencils, stencils, pattern rubs, sequins, glitter and light box to create your look. When it's done, put your creation on the paper dolls to showcase it to the judges (or to Mom, friends or siblings if you can't find Michael Kors and Heidi Klum around). Fabric isn't included with this kit, which is a bit of a disappointment, especially when you're unable to find the print of your young designer's dreams (or the ones demonstrated in the design guides) in any fabric store. The light box isn't very bright, but it is strong enough to enable tracing onto the included sketch sheets, which are very, very thin. They're also easily replaced by other paper when they've all been used. The kit also includes heat transfer sheets, allowing kids to iron their favorite design creations onto a tee shirt or bag. This is a great option for those who want to transfer their own style from the game world into real life.
