Creativity For Kids / Faber-Castell Monster Trucks Custom Shop Review/Giveaway "Holiday Gift Guide 2011"

Wednesday, November 9, 2011

My kids love to be creative with arts and crafts. So, we try to take time a few times each week and spend time as a family doing arts and crafts. This allows us to be able to make happy memories together. Although, I am sure my kids would enjoy doing things other than that which include just paper, glue and glitter. This is where Creativity for Kids / Faber-Castell comes into play. They offer enjoyable arts and crafts for both boys and girls which allow them to have fun with while exercising the creative 'muscle' of their imagination. They have things from books, jewelry, cars, tattoos, dolls, animals, robots and more. I was delightfully surprised at the options Creativity for Kids / Faber-Castell offered.

About the company:**********In 1976 Phyllis Brody and Evelyn Greenwald, the founders of Creativity for Kids, had a dream that their unique concept of enriching, open-ended creative activities would inspire children all around the world.  With hard work, a dedicated mission and respected friendships along the way, their dream became reality.

Today the Creativity for Kids Brand has grown into a global manufacturing and distribution business reaching children in more than 35 countries. Our headquarters in Valley View, Ohio located just 20 minutes South East of Downtown Cleveland, remains true to its original roots.  Our family (A.K.A. employees) continues to grow and currently consists of 70 members in the US, each contributing their own unique spirit to the brand.**********

Faber-Castell is committed to providing children with the highest quality, innovative and thoughtful products that offer opportunities to express their uniqueness through creative play.  Drawing, painting, crafting and pretending are all an integral part of a healthy childhood.  Creativity for Kids products are designed in the USA and are non-toxic and safe for children. In their 31+ year history, they have never experienced a recall.

My little boy was so thrilled with the Monster Trucks Custom Shop, which let me know I made the right choice for the item to review. I was pleasantly surprised at the size of the Monster Trucks, which were a bit larger than other popular brands. The quality of the Monster Trucks was astonishing, the plastic seems quite durable and the wheels were rubber. You can also see the small suspension springs behind the tires. Most out-of-the box craft products look plain until decorated or painted. I found, and the picture below shows, that these trucks come with a paint job that looks better than if you had to paint the body before adding details. This saves time and will allow the children (some of which can be impatient) to jump straight into the trucks customization. It also allows them to get to the best part faster, which is admiring and enjoying their handy work.

My little boy loved the fact they he could detail the Monster Trucks whichever way he preferred. This allowed his imagination and creativity to run freely when painting and adding stickers. Once he was completed with his masterpieces, he was ready to go play with them. They were able to be played with alongside of his toughest Monster Trucks, and really were a hit with him. My little boy can be picky, but could not have been happier with the outcome of his Monster Trucks. This is an American made product that encourages art, the use of imagination through creativity, promotes spending time with family, and allows kids to get to know the feeling of pride for a job well done.

Where to purchase: You are able to purchase from the Creativity For Kids / Faber-Castell website. There is also a store locator tab, which allows you to see what stores in your area sell these products. Prices will vary depending on the products you purchase.
