Toy Fair ’09: Bandai’s Harumika For Designing Your Own Fashions

Bandai has released a unique fashion and design toy that will make any little girl or tween unleash their inner Project Runway. But these fashions as so simple to make, that stitching is not required. At Toy Fair we were introduced to Harumika, a simple design toy that is a lot of fun and only requires your imagination. The new dress-form fashion doll from Bandai is already a big hit in Japan. Kids can easily design attire with colorful fabrics and fashion accessories just by shoving the plastic design stylus tool in the back of the form to keep it in place. When you are done with your style, take a picture with the included mini digital camera and upload it to the Harumika Website to participate in a fashion show or add styles to a look book. Look for Bandai’s Harumika sometime in July.
