Fun doesn’t have to be flashy, but the ensembles your budding fashion designer creates with the Mudpuppy Cat Fashion Magnetic Dress-up set just might be. Played solo or with a pal, the set comes with two pretty kitties to dress using 40-plus interchangeable magnets—from shirts to skirts and hats to bags—to assemble the cutest outfits from ears to paws. The four illustrated backgrounds included provide a chic backdrop for their mix-and-match creations. While kids will enjoy having the control to choose what they want their models to wear, we love that this quiet time activity doesn’t require any batteries, just imagination. If that wasn’t enough, the sturdy tin package, which doubles as a play surface, allows nascent style stars to take their show on the road, out to dinner, or on a plane, with easy cleanup and storage all in one spot so they can dress their feline friends again and again.
