Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Story with Crafts All-In-One! The Once upon A Craft The Elves and The Shoemakers set would make a fun gift for a child with a love for listening or retelling stories, crafts, imaginative play, and reading! In this set, there's an illustrated full color book of the story, a lace-up shoe with shoe lace, decorative peel and stick foam stickers for the shoe, a double sided play-set stage to re-create the story , and characters to color. This set is something for a child to do on their own or with a friend, sibling, parent, sitter, family member, or caregiver. It's perfect for a rainy day, in my opinion! The future playability will clearly depend on the child. If for instance your child thrives on classical learning and a love for books and crafts this will certainly be an excellent gift choice. I like how mess free this set is. There's no glue or cutting paper. The only thing you'll need is some sort of coloring tool. My kids used markers to color the 7 ready-to-color characters. The stands these characters go on are very strong and durable! To be honest, my kids used this set once and haven't gone back to it. They did the craft but haven't gone back to read the story or retell it with the characters and stage. If I had this kit as a child, I would have been extremely happy with it and played with it over and over again. I would stress that parents/caregivers should use their best judgment in deciding if this kit would be right for the child in their life. Disclosure: I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample of the product for review and giveaway purposes. The opinions are my own or my immediate family members, based on our personal experience with the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect rainy day activity for toddlers We loved this craft kit. I have a 3 year old boy, about to turn 4. He loves playing with superheroes and play sets. It is hard to get him interested in much else. He was the one who brought the kit to me. We read the easy-to-understand story together, and he did not lose focus once. The pages were colorful and the story was short enough to keep him interested. He loved coloring his own characters after he finished and play acting the story out. He couldn't wait for his older sister to come home to read him the story again and take turns acting it out. And getting to decorate his own shoe was his favorite part! He's a little young to practice the lacing but he knows it's there when ready. Thanks to Educational Insights for the kit in exchange for an honest review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elves & The Shoemaker This is such a fun craft idea. You get both a cute story and crafts all in one package. This set tells the story of the elves who help a poor shoemaker find fame. It also includes several papers dolls that kids can decorate themselves. There is a big shoe with a real tie that will help kids learn how to tie their laces. This craft set makes for hours of entertainment and encourages storytelling.
