The vinyl toy movement has been gaining momentum over the last several years and although the toys being produced look neat, because they are labeled as artwork (instead of toys), they don't have to abide by the same standards that traditional toy manufactures do. RoseArt has created a set of customizable DIY blank toys that are safe to have in your home and all sorts of extras that go with them. The best part, they're affordable!
Each box of figures will run you right around $9.99 (or a single dog for $4.99) and you have your choice of monsters, pets, and geo-shapes. There will be two per box and each package comes with stickers, markers and a little clay to modify your Color Blank into whatever your child has the imagination for.
Instead of playing with the same toys as all of their friends, encourage them to make something on their own. Something new, different and fun! It's a great way to get them involved in an art movement that might interest them a little more than a stuffy painting in a museum, many modern artists are heavily involved in customization shows and they're a great way to introduce them to art that they might think is fun and accessible to them!
