Of course Teddy is not the only sibling who refuses to sit still. My girls are always looking for a willing customer to attempt a pretty braid, do a fancy fishtail plait or try out a new look but it turns out that it’s a lot more fun to be the stylist than the bored customer who is not allowed to move or cries with every stroke of the brush. Keeping all of my budding hairdressers and make-up artists happy has turned out to be a breeze with this cute find from Little Bubba:

Measuring a generous 27cm tall this life-size My Big Sister ‘Styling Head’ (Ages 3+, 10,6″) is the ideal client for any hairdressing or beauty bar, she is always happy to receive a fresh makeover, doesn’t wiggle and never complains when things look a little wonky. With her long blonde hair, big blue eyes and perfect skin this lovely model is a clean canvas waiting for a dedicated artist to give her a brand new look, you can change her style as many times as you like!

To help you set up your own salon the Styling Head comes with a whole heap of beauty and hair accessories: 6 royal crown hair clips, a heart-shaped brush, a pink hair comb, four rollers for gorgeous curls, face stickers and a make-up palette with lip, cheek and eye make-up in different shades.  The set contains everything to get you started, just use your imagination.

Miss 11 is our resident hairdresser and miss 9 is our wannabe make-up artist, so together they have a ball getting this blonde model looking magazine worthy. In our house it is most definitely the older girls who adore this styling kit most, the younger girls like it too but the older two are a bit better at the delicate application of make-up and have patience for the step-by-step process of tricky hair styles. A quick rinse with a baby wipe removes all the makeup, there are no stains and it washes off easily from hands and clothing too.

One small note: While the box does list all the make-up ingredients on the bottom, it does clearly say ‘for external application on dolls only’ so I am not sure how suitable it is for human skin. I have specifically instructed my girls not to apply it to their own skin but I can imagine some children will be keen to give themselves a makeover which may cause an allergic reaction.

As a mum of three year old twins my days are often filled with role playing. A princess, a fireman, a doctor or a ladybug, I have seen them all and every week they come up with brand new characters. They take their new personalities very seriously, of course it helps when you wear a special princess dress and step around in shiny princess shoes with diamantes but it becomes even more real when mum gets out the Pure Poppet Play Makeup Kit

The Pure Poppet range is developed by Georga, an Australian mum with two little girls who love dressing up just as much as my two. Face paint or play make up can add lots of fun to a game of make believe but it is the invisible side of those brightly coloured pots and tubes that can really ruin the party. Many kids have sensitive skin that responds to the harsh ingredients used in ordinary make up sets. Georga decided to create a natural alternative that lets your little poppets enjoy their games the pure way.

Pure Poppet products are made right here in Australia using natural ingredients, so you don’t have to worry about nasties like ferric ferrocyanide, artificial dyes, FD&C colours, talc, carmine, bismuth oxychloride, mineral oil and paraben preservatives. The Pure Poppet range is perfect for use at home or a party, boys and girls, butterflies, princesses and clowns, just simple and pure dress up fun for little ones.

Within the range you will find Play Makeup Crayons, Powders, Lip Balm and Stencils as well as a complete Pure Poppet Play Makeup Kit with lots of different goodies. All you need is a few drops of water and you can start transforming your kids into a character of their choice. The Mineral Powder can be used dry or wet and is very easy to apply, the result is just fantastic! Pure Poppet Play Makeup looks (and smells) amazing, an ideal gift for little ones and with prices starting at just $4.95 the price tag is very sweet too.
