What fun! As well as nine big, nontoxic crayons in primary colors, this Giant Color-Me-In Poster Kit includes a large (45 x 30) poster featuring princesses outside their castle on a sunny day; two pages of big stickers; and a Play Guide. It comes in its own carrying kit.

Both poster and stickers are purple on white (all to be colored). Stickers include a horse (with a horn to make him into a unicorn, and a wing to make him fly), a swan, a frog, flowers, butterflies, dragonflies, and a princess reading a book. The Play Guide's suggestions range from hosting a coloring party, to ways to encourage kids' imaginations (at different ages), and all kinds of glittering art ideas.

The folk at Gymboree encourage parents and caregivers to follow children's creative lead and to celebrate their efforts. Little princesses (three and up) will have a blast coloring this castle scene together, and imagining being part of it. (Note that a similar On a Pirate Ship kit is available for boys.)
