Rated 2 out of 5Â by Ravi's Mom I can't buy this for my son!
I think this product looks great for a little girl. Unfortunately, my little artist is a boy. He loves all art play. Sadly, there are so many great products that would be wonderful for developing fine motor skills that are soley marketed towards little girls! Melissa and Doug usually does such a great job carrying gender neutal or gender equal options. Where are the cool boy plates? There are princess fashion plates, why not super heros? I hope a developer will consider all the mothers with crafty little boys that would just love to buy a version of this product that isn't available.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by mom only super girly sets?
what about car designs, monsters, super heros,animals, etc?? My son loves the idea of these design plates, but QUICKLY tires of the super girly fashion theme. My daughter loves monsters and such too. But as usual...princesses for girls and everything in pink/purple , and nothing for boys....and if at all...only "boy colors" and "boy themes". I'm sooo tired of the toys being so limiting. Both my son and daughter get soooo upset that the toy stores are set up for girl and boy....instead of toys being for KIDS....not gender specific.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Grandma Susie So much fun/need for boys
This item is like my little girl had 20 plus yrs ago and she loved it. This is easy to use, fun, imaginative and what little girl does not like to be a dress designer. My sons had one too for cars and I cannot find them now. I hope you make one with one with cars, trucks, even animals that are more boy appealing. Even the option of extra plates would be nice. The girls love this and would very much like to buy some for the boys.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by sabowen Love the overall product
I purchased 2 of these - one for my 5 yr old and one for our 4 yr old niece. While the overall quality is good, the opening cover does not stay on. This is the closest I have found to the fashion plates of my childhood, I just wish the the opening cover was better quality. My daughter has already spent hours designing new styles and loves it...it just takes a few minutes for every plate change for me to put the cover back on.
