I’m really excited about this month’s Kids’ Pick because it’s all about imagination. Kids who love to doodle can give their own stamps of approval to their drawings with Stamps & Doodles. Girls can customize models’ out;ts, design a dream bedroom and create a celebrity magazine. Boys can construct a pirate ship, add style to a skateboard and explore the depths of outer space. Each Stamps & Doodles title comes with an activity book, a washable- ink stamp pad and eight foam stamps, making them perfect for every budding artist.
