Harumika is aimed at young girls and immensely popular with budding fashionistas. It’s simple design technique – hours of fun, easy to pick up. No sewing, no scissors, no glue! The secret lies in the silicon strip on the back of each mannequin which holds fabric in place. All the materials and accessories are reusable so possibilities are endless. The Harumika toy is suitable for children aged 4+.
To celebrate Kate & William’s wedding we have a Bridal collection currently available exclusively at Toys R Us until June 30th – £34.99. It’s always a young girls dream to plan and design their ideal wedding outfit! You can create what you think will be Kate’s dress on the Harumika mannequin.
The set includes 2 dress forms; stylus tools and an exclusive floral base stand to add elegance to your display, along with 12 chic formal length fabrics that come in the latest wedding colours and textures. Additional accessories of lace and ribbons, extra large veil fabric, rhinestone sheet and fashion stickers. As an added bonus, the packaging folds out into a mirrored dressing room.
The Harumika Bridal Set is currently available from Toys R Us or direct from www.bandai.co.uk
Girlie Gossip Reviews…
We recently reviewed one of the Harumika starter sets, here are our thoughts!
The premise of this toy is so simplistic that I must admit, I was pretty sceptical about it at first. I wasn’t sure if it would prove to be genuinely entertaining for kids but I guess I was proved well and truly wrong by my 8yr old who has spent the best part of a Saturay morning playing with it!
The whole idea is that you use the fabrics provided to create different styles of outfit on your manequin and the clever little fitting tool means you can eaily secure them to the back of the doll without it coming undone. This means no need for glue, scissors or any mess at all really! (can you see why I’m such a fan now?!)
You can purchase different sets, including a wedding set which is perfect given the upcoming royal wedding and there are a wide variety of matericals and accessories.
www.bandai.co.uk has the whole range but we have just been dragged to Toys R Us to buy additional sets to go with this and Argos and many more shops also stock them. You could even use your own fabric scraps to add to the designs if you’re into crafting like us. I was really taken with this and it makes great entertainment for those budding fashionistas out there!
