Toy Buzz: Dress-Up Dresses by Enchantimals

Our next installment of Toy Buzz highlights a really important aspect of childhood development – imagination development!

I have fond memories of dressing up as a little girl and my gran was always a big advocate for encouraging creativity and allowing us to dress up in all her many ‘hidden treasures’.

Enchantimals have released their own dress-up range in South Africa and girls can now enjoy these fun character dresses and enjoy being Patter Peacock or Felicity Fox and enjoy playing in their own imaginary world!
