"Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were but without it we go nowhere"~ Carl Sagan
My mother opened up my daughters' worlds to a time of simplicity and imagination. My mother bought my daughters their first set of paper dolls when my youngest was around 2 and they fell in love with them. There is nothing more innocent than watching your child play with their full potential of their imagination except when that imagination is bigger than their tiny hands. When the tiny hands can't dress the paper dolls in their cute cut out clothing this makes it double duty for Mommy which is not as much fun as just observing. While I loved the dolls it was a constant interruption for me throughout my day every time they needed an outfit changed. This as you can imagine was not ideal and when you add on the amount of time it took to clean up after these dolls the effort was exhausting!
I began to feel guilty that every time I cleaned up their mess I would dispose of some of the clothes or when they would ask to play with them I would change the subject to another less invasive toy of choice. Then I came across Betty Lukens Felt sets and I fell in love with the whole concept of these activity mats! Everything is right there- convenient to use and accessible for tiny hands. The felt keeps everything in place and it allows the imagination to run wild! My youngest daughter played for almost an hour dressing up the princessand getting her ready for the ball! My oldest had fun playing dress up with the Panda but lost interest rather quickly as she is 7 but then I caught her playing with the princess one the next day!
There is nothing that would deter me from recommending this product to others! Even my 2 year old nephew had a good time playing with them. My daughter and him were as good as gold playing on my living room floor and they even cleaned up everything themselves! I recommend after purchase that you do keep the case that they come in for easy clean up!
