My daughter turned eight a few months ago, which means she’s now officially a tween. I’ll admit that buying her gifts is extremely difficult – she doesn’t like toys anymore, she prefers to pick out her own clothes, and her taste in books is difficult to predict. Last year, we visited FashionPlaytes headquarters in Massachusetts and it was the highlight of my fashion- and design-obsessed daughter’s year, but other than gift cards, it used to be difficult to buy gifts from FashionPlaytes. All of the clothes are personally designed by your child, so they can’t just be purchased off the shelf. That’s why I was thrilled to see that they recently came out with some accessories that make great gifts- especially paired with a gift card.
We received the brand-new Fashion Playtes 2Go Kit as well as a Hair Fling. My daughter absolutely loves the 2Go Kit – it comes with a set of colored pencils, an FPgirl Fashion Sketchbook, and a shoulder bag. She immediately opened it up and started designing clothes with the pencils and sketchbook. She’s also enjoying the zebra-print bag, and carries it around with her (it is large enough for an iPad – so it’s perfect for a road-trip). The Fashion Playtes 2Go Kit a great gift for the girl in your life – tuck a gift card into it for an even better gift. It’s available in pink, purple, zebra-striped, and black.
The Hair Fling, which is a great stocking stuffer, is a barrette with charms attached that dangle down. Charms are also available to purchase individually, and can be used as backpack zipper pulls, on a necklace, or on a hair fling. Bracelets, scarves, wristlets and other accessories are also available on the FashionPlaytes website, and are wonderful gifts paired with an FPgirl gift card.
