imgres-4Kids love to play pretend and dress-up so don’t forget the makeup! This kid-sized beauty kit was magic in a preschooler’s hands. I couldn’t believe how realistic and fun a beauty kit could be made out of wood. My little friend continually put on much lipstick, sprayed the perfume, dabbed on her nail polish (cleverly depicted as a pink loop of string at the end of the applicator), dabbed on powder, used the hair bands for earrings, drew on eye makeup and primped in the mirror. After quite a makeover, everything went back into the soft kid-sized suitcase for travel to the next customer. Engaging toys that excite pretend play are great partners with language learning as kids use these fun props to imitate life and start their own little stories. Hape’s high¬†quality toys do just that.
