Bottom lineWatch your kid's inner fashion designer emerge with the Kahootz Fashion Press Paper Fashion Maker, a simple craft kit that will have them mixing, matching and experimenting to assemble the perfect ensemble.
Paper dolls get the high-fashion treatment with the Kahoots Fashion Press Paper Fashion Maker. The innovative crafting toy includes plastic pressing plates, 50 sheets of pretty paper, a roller, a glue stick and doll designs. Fashionistas simply place a sheet of paper into the plates, then hand crank the plates in the roller device. Open the plates and perfect two-dimensional outfits such as pants and tops or a dress are ready to be gently punched from the paper and glued onto the paper doll drawings provided. Minimal help is required from grown-ups as no assembly is needed, though younger kids might need assistance working the roller or punching out the designs from delicate paper. Don’t worry if your junior designer runs out of paper or dolls. Doll designs can be downloaded from the manufacturer’s website, and any paper can be used in the presses, from magazine pages to wrapping paper to plain paper featuring your child’s own custom patterns.
