Pretend play is so important for children, so when I heard about Wearables by Kid Constructions, I was anxious to have Quinn try out this fun product. Wearables take construction play to the next level by adding role playing. Children can now design their own fun eco-friendly cardboard vehicles, put them together, then step into the drivers seat, literally. It’s a unique and clever approach to craft play for children.
Quinn received the Wearables Stunt Plane, complete with shoulder straps and spinning propellers. This corrugated cardboard plane is preprinted and precut so we all worked together to color it right out of the box. We used markers and it took three of us about an hour to complete that step.
Next we put it together, which took maybe ten minutes and Quinn got to playing. He loves zooming around the house in “Blue Propeller”, the name he christened his plane with. This was a fun art project for us all and Quinn has had hours of imaginative play with his airplane. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the cardboard and was shocked that the fully assembled plane is a huge 40”x44”x11”. It is just the right size for my 5 year old and he’s really enjoyed playing with it.
You can learn more about Wearables on their website,www.kidconstructions.com. Wearables currently come in three fun vehicles: a Stunt Plane, a Princess Carriage, and Dozer (bulldozer) and each one retails for about $24.95 on Amazon.com and Toys R Us.
Thank you to Wearables for providing a complimentary product sample for us to base this review upon and for providing and additional product for our contest prize.
