It’s amazing what can be had with loads of creativity, splashes of colour and imaginative minds. And having said that I am so excited to share with you the lovely experience Lil’ Girl had at the Barbie Design-A-Tote Workshop held at Da Vinci Kids in Taman Tun recently. For those of you with lil’ girls of your own this is undoubtedly an activity worth exploring. A collaboration between Mattel and Da Vinci Creative Kids, the Barbie Design-A-Tote Workshop follows the huge success of the Design & Dress Studio held last year.
To be held over the duration of a month and a half beginning, the series of workshops will be held at different Da Vinci outlets every weekend until November the 3rd and give a chance to 400 young aspiring designers to explore their creative abilities as they design their own personal Tote.
Now I personally like how Barbie is evolving to meet the needs of developing young minds. Gone are the days when playing with Barbie’s were all about combing her long lustrous hair and dressing her up in the finest of frocks. Today’s Barbie challenges young girls to put their own ideas and creativity in practice whilst at play,something I as a mother I am positively delighted with.
Playing host to 20 young girls all ready to unleash their creative genius were the exuberant staff at Da Vinci Kids Taman Tun. Headed by Teacher Kelly, the team at Da Vinci Taman Tun were raring start the creative process and had nothing but smiles as they welcomed the little participants and their eager parents.
Up for grabs were the Barbie Design Plates Doll which are priced at RM 99.90 each. Designed to encourage young girls to build on their imagination and creativity whilst becoming Barbie’s personal fashion designer, this set allows young girls to mix and match ideas to create unique looks and styles in 3 simple steps – Design, Swipe and Decorate.
I’m sure after the participants saw what they could do with the Design Plates Barbie they were itching to start all in hopes of creatively winning their way to one:)
After the excitement of designing their own tote, all the participants were treated to snack by Kenny Rogers ROASTERS. KRR also pitched in to participate in the workshop in line with their KRR’s ” I Love I Care” campaign. So whilst the kids munched away, the judges deliberated on the winning Tote’s.
For those of you who would like for your lil’ princess to participate in these Design-A-Tote Workshop, you can still do so. As mentioned earlier they are on every weekend until the 5th of November. All information on dates and venues can be found at the Da Vinci website. Registration is priced at RM 20 which includes Tote bag and accessories, snacks and Goodie Bag with Barbie products worth over RM 40. In it’s initiative to give back to society, all proceeds generated from the workshop’s this year will be channeled towards Shelter Home for Children.
On that note I bid you adieu… I hope you’ve had as much fun looking at the pictures and reading this post as much as fun as both myself and Lil’Girl had at the Design-A-Tote Workshop. Until later 🙂
