Crayola My Virtual Fashion Show
( Crayola $19.99 Score: )

Wow! Young fashion designers can create fabulous fashions in their 20-page Fashion Sketch Book by coloring the front and back images of clothes in the book. The kit comes with 12 colored pencils. Next, they take a photo of their designs with their "device" (meaning smart phones or i-pad) and use the My Virtual Fashion Show app to customize the modelís look and accessories. Got it all set? Now kids can watch their original fashions on the runway as the 3-D model walks and spins to show front and back of their high style creations. Their creations can be saved on the device to view again and again. Instead of giving over your device, most of the designing is done on paper and then viewed on the device. Now, this is technology they gotta love, if they are into fashion! We discovered that other markers work just fine and you can print new templates directly from the app (no charge) so you always have more options and don't have to buy new notebooks in order to continue to create. There is a more elaborate version of this toy with more markers, but this less expensive version has a nice carry case for the book to fit into.  They say 6 & up. We'd say slightly older girls will be using this as more than just a coloring book. Older girls will be able to add more design elements for impressive results. Our ten year old tester said this was the most exciting new electronic art toy of the year. We have to agree.
