Creativity for Kids Review and Giveaway...

ABCD Diaries
2010 Holiday Gift Guide:
Creative Kids


We recently had the chance to review the Recycled Cardboard Dollhouse from Creativity For Kids. About Faber-Castell/Creativity For Kids:
"Faber-Castell is committed to providing children with quality, innovative and thoughtful products that offer opportunities to express their uniqueness through creative play. Drawing, painting, crafting and pretending are all an integral part of a healthy childhood. ALL Faber-Castell Children’s Brand Products are non-toxic and safe for children.

Our number one priority is ensuring the safety of your children, as well as our own children. Creativity for Kids products are designed in the USA by a team of real people who are parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles themselves. Before our products ever hit the shelf, they are subjected to rigorous testing and they must conform to all US toy safety standards. In addition, because we sell our products overseas, many of our products are subjected to, and conform to, even stricter European safety standards. Safety is not an after-thought; it is ingrained in our product development process.
In our 31+ year history, we’ve never experienced a recall. This is a result of holding ourselves to a higher standard to ensure that children will have premium quality creative experiences and parents can rest easy knowing their children will be safe using our products.
We hope that you enjoy our wide variety of safe and fun products that will inspire your child's natural curiosity and encourage self expression as they grow."

What we thought: Creativity For Kids is like heaven for 4 year old A! She has always loved anything to do with arts and crafts and these kits are perfect for kids with crafty interests:) They have a huge variety of kits ranging from toddler age to adult and they really cover a broad range of topics for both boy and girl audiences. The Recycled Cardboard Dollhouse was awesome! It was easy-to-assemble and sturdier than I expected. The color pages and pop-outs really let A express her creativity and she loved decorating each piece of furniture and every room. There are a lot of pieces, but that just means putting the kit together will last longer and she will get to enjoy it even more:) These kits would be perfect gifts for crafty kids, especially those home on winter break who need a "break" from the TV:) ABCD Diaries gives Creativity For Kids an A+!
