Comments about Product: I got the fashion design studio for my 8 yr old daughter for Christmas and she loves it!! She loves drawing fashions and the kit helps her get really creative in the colors and textures. She even had me designing some fashions and I am not artistic at all but was fun!
Comments about Product: I got this kit for my older daughter about 5 or 6 years ago (she's now 15). She loved it then and still enjoys it today. We have gotten every add-on kit available. The possiblities are endless. The quality superior. We did go through the vellum that came with it rather quickly. I now order packs of vellum on-line from an art supplier. Countless hours of quiet creative play.
Comments about Product: I have seen this product in use with great success at a Brownie girl scout meeting, and in our own home setting. With 10 girls or 1, it captivated the participants. My 9 year-old daughter pulls out her set when friends come over and they create fashion plates. She has fashion shows and puts the pictures on the wall for us to "vote" on. A great set overall.
Comments about Product: The Fashion Design Studio is a great product! I bought it for my daughter when she was ten, and she spent hours designing outfits. Her younger sister (age seven at the time) also enjoyed it, along with any of their friends who visited.
This was a product that they came back to often over several years. Another nice thing about the Fashion Design Studio is that you can add to it later for birthdays or Christmas, buying the hobby or costume sets or the pencil sets. By now, we have them all, and the pencils are of very good quality. The tracing paper that comes with it is thicker than ordinary tracing paper, but when we ran out, we just used store-bought, thinner paper.
It would be hard to find any toy or product that was the source of as much enjoyment as this one was for my girls.
Comments about Product: I was looking for a good quality inexpensive light box for my quilting and needle work projects and, based on past experience with other products, I knew I could count on Hearth Song to have what I needed. I got exactly what I wanted; and the light box is perfect - portable, easy to use, right size. It makes the tedious job of copying and transferring patterns almost fun.
Comments about Product: The Design Studio Kit was a gift for a grandniece. She loved it! It gave her hours of creative fun that she could do alone or share with a friend. Kit was well made and interesting.
Comments about Product: My daughters enjoy this product, but as a mother I tend to prefer when they concentrate on home design versus fashion design simply given how society tends to pressure girls to concentrate on their appearance more than their personalities.
