Great toy for boys and girls. Can be used with existing and alternative materials to create dolls. Nice alternative to plastic toys!
Our granddaughter found it difficult to color the wooden dolls with the pencils. Also, there were no instructions and/or examples of how to use the fabric, thread, etc. Think you should consider improving pencil quality and including instructions. Great idea, but not user friendly.

Gave this to our 5 year-old granddaughter. She loved it, but found it difficult to work with. I sat with her entire time and I too found that the pencils did not work well on the wooden pieces. It would have been good to have an instruction or idea booklet as to how to cut fabric.
Avoid until it comes down to $25.
It's a perfect birthday gift for a young girl. She loved it!
The product was pretty easy to use and you can use more than once. It also allows a kid to really represent their own family. My only suggestion would be to use darker shades of wood that vary for kids from biracial families (like my niece and nephew). But other than that, I like it.

My Granddaughter made them to resemble her family. Loved it!

My granddaughters love to put these dolls together...and then to play and use their imaginations to make up stories & use them in play. They loved the clothespin dolls, so I thought this would be a little more sophisticated and give them some variety in size & shape. They LOVE THEM!!!
I bought this to make Christmas ornaments of our family members. It was fun for my husband and I to watch our three children (13, 10 and 5)laugh so much while doing a craft together. We all had a blast creating and representing ourselves out of these perfect pieces of wood. They will be fun to look at and cherish in the years to come.
