My daughter is a huge fan of playing pretend, dressing up, and using her imagination. For the past few years her "dress up wardrobe" has expended. In fact, when we organized the play room, I decided to buy a child's size clothing rack for all of her play clothes. I have worked with Great Pretenders for the past two years on my Holiday Gift Guide. And each when they contact me, I am so excited to see their new quality, products at great prices.
The Great Pretenders story is one that starts like many. Once upon a time, there was a mom troubled by the lack fun and imaginative toys for her children. Baffled by this, she set out on her ambitious journey to come up with creative, pretend-play toys that would light up any child's imagination. Fast forward; her endeavors transcended into a vastly successful dress-up and costume business which manufactures award-winning toys – an innovative leader in the pretend-play market for children.
“Dress-up” is so much more than just putting on a costume, as Oppenheim Toy Portfolio says: “Pretend play is not just great fun. It’s the way kids develop imagination and creative thinking skills and try out being big and powerful. Pretending also brings the world down to the child’s size and understanding. It’s a way to develop communication skills and an outlet for expressing feelings and fears.”
At Great Pretenders, they are constantly on the hunt for great fabrics, trims and findings which can be transformed into inspiring pretend-play toys for children. Not only do they aim to provide the best value for your dollar, they strive to be as innovative as possible in what they make. For example, all of their products are easy-care and with maximum sizing flexibility. They also make great strides on the creative end – their popular reversible costumes & capes are fan-favorites and have won several acclaimed toy awards.
