Grace: Ever since I was little, I’ve always loved DIY kits. My favorite gifts were the ones where I could make things to stick on the windows or make my own stuffed animals. I love the idea of inspiring a child’s creativity and encouraging them to try new things, which is why I love this DIY Yoyo Doll Kit.
Most DIY kits I had were actually quite complicated, so although they were fun and I loved the end prodcut, sometimes they were a little frustrating too. However, this kit doesn’t seem to be too complicated, since all the hard parts (the hands, head, etc) come pre-made. In addition to being fun, this gift is also ecologically and socially conscious. Made from old sweaters, this is also a fair trade product , thereby helping developing countries and the environment at the same time. If you’re looking for a socially conscious gift that’s also fun and cute, I would definitely take a look at this one!
Dan: This is a great gift idea! Not only does it make a toy but you can learn along the way. I was never one for dolls. When I was in the 7th grade in home economics class, we had a school project in which we had to use sewing machines to make stuffed animal frogs. Let’s just say I did not have what it takes. Ended up borrowing a friend’s from a different class, got caught, and had to hand in my leaking bean bag that did not resemble a frog whatsoever. Therefore, I would also have to agree with you that some of these DIY projects are simply frustrating and not fun at all.
