Inkoos Plush DIY Toys for Kids
These cool and quirky characters from the town of Inkwell give your creative children the chance to draw and design – over and over again!
Kids like to draw – and they aren't always particular about where they do it. They'll draw on the walls, the carpet and even each other – three places that markers ideally don't belong. But c'mon mom: Paper can be boring sometimes! So give your little rascals Inkoos, a plush 3-D canvas where they can exercise their budding Picasso skills.
These silly plushy characters come from a town called Inkwell and "are drawn to life with a little Inkspiration" from your little one. Every inch of these plushies can be doodled on! And if you think this is on a one-time deal, think again. Once your child is done with her first creation, throw Inkoos in the washing machine for a quick rinse and spin, and start all over again.
Each character comes with an Inkspiration Wheel that gives kids some design ideas, like pirates and ballerinas, along with three washable markers. There are seven Inkoos to choose from, including an owl, bear and cat – they're all so sweet and squishy. Plus, they allow for hours of creative play for your kid without getting ink all over the rest of the house.
