Colorforms Magic Fashion Show


Colorforms 001

    Here is what the Toys R Us website has to say about the Colorforms Magic Fashion Show:
The Colorforms Magic Fashion Show is destined to be a hit with girls, bringing the classic imaginative play pattern of dressing paper dolls into today’s world. Magic Fashion Show makes every girl a Head Designer as she dresses standing runway models in different outfits and accessories “backstage” and sends them along a circular “catwalk” to show off each new ensemble. The product includes the Fashion Runway with spotlights that really work, 5 Standing Fashion Dolls, and 6 sheets of Colorforms Stick-Ons outfits and accessories to create nearly endless outfit combinations.

This review brings me back to my childhood.  I absolutely loved Colorforms as a kid & I was excited to see they are making a come-back!

For those unfamiliar with Colorforms, they are a cross between paper dolls and window clings.  You can dress up the dolls with an endless combination of outfits and with the new Fashion Show stage, they can “walk the catwalk”.  The stage has lights that you can turn on/off and you control how fast the girls “walk” by using a spin dial.  This is perfect for my 4 year old as it requires no reading.  She just uses her imagination!  The Magic Fashion Show is designed for ages 3-8, but I’m sure my 9 year old daughter (and probably my 11 1/2 year old son) will enjoy this as well.

Things I really love about this Colorforms set:

  • Under the stage, there is a storage drawer to hold the dolls and outfits.
  • You can dis-assemble the stage fairly easily to fit back into the original box if needed.
  • The clothing/accessories can be easily wiped down with a wet cloth if it loses it’s “sticky-ness”.
  • You don’t HAVE to use the batteries (3-AA) to play with it.  The only thing that uses batteries is the stage lights.  My kids can still play – even if we need to replace the batteries.
  • It’s quiet.  Enough said.  lol
  • There are 5 dolls with a variety of skin and hair colors.  I like my kids to have a variety of “people” to play with.  Not everyone is the same & dolls should be no different.  🙂I recommend this toy for any child ages 3+ that enjoys using their imagination, fashion design, and/or playing dress-up with their dolls.
