Why the Crayola Virtual Design Pro Fashion Collection Makes a Good Buy
This complete design kit for kids basically mimics the real world experience for fashion designers. Your child is able to use the included stencils and 20 page design book, colored pencils and Super Tip markers to brainstorm and create a unique design.
Then the compatibility with Apple and Android tablets and smartphones allows her to see her creations “worn” by virtual models. The included application also provides extra templates for male and female fashion designs which can be printed for free. Your child can even choose from different international fashion hub locations to stage a virtual fashion show.
This is the exact same process, from idea, to print form, to electronic interface, that professional designers use. And parents will be happy to that the price tag is attractive for all budget levels.
A really nice feature is the ability to instantly share creations with the rest of the world through e-mail access. Once your child designs a fashion or creation on paper and scans the result, accessorizing with shoes, jewelry, hairstyle and skin tone through the special fashion show application, the electronic version is available for sharing.
This is the perfect gift for fashion minded children and young adults as well. Crayola also made the Virtual Design Pro Fashion Collection portable. The entire package folds over and snaps together, and has a convenient carrying handle so young designers can join their friends for fashion design parties.
For young fans of the Project Runway TV show, or those who have displayed a penchant for fashion and design, this makes a practical and low-priced “perfect purchase”. Creativity, imagination and self-expression are promoted, and you may just be giving the world’s next top fashion designer their start with this smartly designed beginner’s set.
