Playful Pets Nesting Dolls
( Creativity for Kids $17 Score: )

Updated versions of Russian nesting dolls have been big lately in toyland. Last year there were several decidedly ugly versions (pirates, bikers, etc.).  This year Creativity for Kids introduced this lovely new kit- that we love. It comes with 5 nesting dolls (a dog, a cat, a bunny, a mouse and a little piece of cheese).  Each has  a pre-printed design- now some will find this cheating but it does lend a more finished product that kids can bring their own creativity to in terms of color selections. The set comes with eight little tubs of paint, two paint brushes and a black marker.  If you have a child that will be upset if they go outside of the lines, then you may want to give them permanent markers to work with instead. We found that medium Sharpies work well.  For other kids, they will enjoy adding paint without fretting over the lines.  In some cases this will depend on the age of your child or their temperament.   The kit is marked 6 & up, we found that you really need to be more like 8 & up to do the detail work.
