Sometimes I come across some really cool gift ideas for kids that are older than mine currently are. Unique gifts that I haven’t seen before, but that I think kids might just go crazy over…Poofin is one of those gifts.
Poofin was created with the understanding that it is often difficult for young children to express who they are. The Poofin stars are developmental toys that can help ease shy children out of their shells by providing a friendly tool to help them express themselves.
Here’s how it works: the soft, plush star comes in several colors/combinations. Each star is like a pillow and has a zippered compartment that can be filled with personalized charms (they’re like mini-pillows), which creates a unique collection that represents its owner. It’s like a soft, cuddly treasure chest!
There is also quite a selection of charms to choose from: ballerina, pirate, kittens, baseball, ice cream…whatever your child loves and feels defines him or her. And if you have a creative child, he can even create his own charms at the Poofin Factory! He simply finds fun pictures of friends & family, pets or other things he really likes. Because the charms are small, it’s best to choose images that are simple, graphic and have sharp details. Pictures with no more than 3 people work best. You can also scan in small artwork.
The charms, whether you purchase pre-made ones or create your own, are $3.50 each. The stars start at $17.99 for just a star and up to $24.99 for a gift set.
Cute idea, do you think your child would like a Poofin?
