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!
“My daughter immediately loved this outfit. She was quickly transported into a world of imagination where she was the peacock and I was the Peacock mother! These outfits are really great for little ones to make up their own games and can also be used as special ‘dance’ and princess outfits too. ” – Mom of 3
“These dresses are a lovely addition to any dress-up corner. They are easy to put on and allow the children to stretch their imaginations” – Pre-school teacher
“This dress is really pretty and so I like it” – Ava*, age 5
