The Virtual Design Pro Collection lets young designers bring their fashion designs to a virtual runway and car designs to a stunt course. The Pro Fashion and Pro Car Collections allows children to create their own designs (clothing or cars), scan them into their iOS or Android device, and hold virtual fashion shows complete with models and backdrops or test drive their designs on a stunt course. The kit includes: a 20-page design book 36 colored pencils, 20 super tip markers, 4 stencils, a pencil sharpener, and a sturdy carrying case.

After completing the twenty blank templates included in the kit, designers can download additional templates from the app itself. Although some testers reported some frustration in lining up the QR codes to successfully photograph and upload the design, all agreed that the result was worth the wait. The physical materials alone are impressive, but the ability to watch 2D designs come to life adds a layer of fun.
