Fashion Plates

Poppy, James and I went to stay with my parents for the weekend, and Poppy pulled out my old ‘Fashion Plates’.  Do you remember the classic ’80’s game for all those budding young designers out there?

Fashion Plates was first introduced by Tomy Corp. in 1978 as the kit that helps young designers, 6 and up, create fashions.  Hundreds, thousands, even millions of fashionable combinations can be created.

Seeing Poppy play with it brought back so many memories of the hours I would spend deciding upon the complementary combinations and to seek tracing perfection with the provided crayon.  Smudge marks were taboo in ‘Fashion Plate’ land!  Poppy didn’t appear too concerned with perfection, but she did enjoy her ‘Fashion Plate’ experience none-the-less!
