Harumika Love – Giveaway Too!

Published by on

Winner is: One Scrappy Gal — email me please Aileen, to claim your prize.

To say I’m dragging my blogging butt these days, is a wee bit of an understatement. Ack! Way back in July my girls were lucky enough to receive a Harumika, to try out.


As soon as she saw the dress form Lizzy was in LOVE. We watch Project Runway together and I know she has fashion designing dreams. Like all the products that come in for review, I like to get photos before they’re devoured by the troops. It means the kids don’t get to rip open the toy the moment it arrives. The agony of all those, “please mommy, please can you take the pictures now” — I didn’t stand a chance.


Georgia was in there like a dirty shirt (like always).


How Does it Work? (the doll) Choose a swatch of exclusive Harumika fabric and wrap it around the dress form.


Secure it using the Style Lock Systemâ„¢ and stylus tool.


Style it your way with accessories!


Did I mention the dirty shirt little sister waiting in the wings for her turn? Notice I didn’t say waiting ‘patiently’ in the wings. She was busy loving up the red tartan fabric which she claimed for herself.


Seriously, Georgie, give us the red tartan! She wasn’t having any of it.


Lizzy had to hand over the dress form and with some help Georgia came up with a pretty stylin’ outfit of her own. After a few days of play, Georgia was (and is) able to style her dress form all on her own.


Just in case, you’re wondering … yep, she enjoyed this!

From a mom’s point of view –> With no cutting, gluing or sewing required it’s a great activity on the go or at home. I love that it is quiet and creative!

As an added bonus: They can share their styles with pride online at www.harumika.com.


Harumika.com is a safe place to upload photos of their favorite designs, display designs in their own virtual ‘fashion boutique’ and show off hottest looks in online fashion runway shows.

Harumika sets start at $10.99 – In the USA find a retailer near you –> Where to buy. The toy will be available at Toys-R-Us in Canada later this fall.

The folks at Harumika have generously offered a Harumika set for me to giveaway to one of you. To be eligible to win, you need to leave a comment on this post. I’ll pick a winner sometime on Friday, August 18th, 2009.

Cool, that looks like such a fun activity for girls! And boys who want to be fashion designers, I guess.
LOVE the photos of your girls, they are SO cute and SO photogenic! I love what they did with the doll and the fabric, they have great style! :-)

So cute! While one of my sisters, 12 years old today, would most likely scoff at it (yay for the not-quite-woman but not-a-girl-anymore phase), my 6 year old sister would love something like that. I’m really liking the no gluing or cutting necessary part. We seem to always have scraps of fabric and bits of paper dolls lying around the floor. And of course, who doesn’t love Japanese fashion?

My girls have a woodkin doll (lift a flap, place material and bring down flap and the doll is dressed in the material) that they share. My oldest (6) is starting the toy, it is for little ones, but I just know she would love this. It would be great for that hour she has to wait during her sister’s ballet class

How wonderful!! My 6 year old has been using our speaker stand for years to create her *ahem* design masterpieces. Then proclaiming “tada!” just before her brothers charge at it and knock it over. As you can imagine, this vexes my husband so. Not the outfits she creates, but the fact that they keep messing with the precious surround sound speakers. This might just be the thing to save his sanity AND encourage the little samster’s creativity. It’s so cute!!

My daughter would love this. She has gotten into a fashion game online and loves doing creative things.

Nikki · September 15, 2009 at 6:59 pm

Love it MK! A fashion-forward little girl’s dream. I love that you are blogging a bit more regularly. I seriously laugh my a@# off every time I read them. Missin you on the WC!!!

Madeline · September 15, 2009 at 9:24 pm

I would have given my eye teeth for one of those as a kiddo. Who am I kidding? I’d love one now. I also know a couple of little girls who would go gaga over this.

Looks like a pretty cool set for a young girl! I also love Project Runway.

Tricia Z · September 16, 2009 at 8:16 am

My daughter would love this- she is always dressing up he stuffed animals and dolls with little scraps of fabric! Thank you ;-)

Jodi Renshaw · September 16, 2009 at 11:17 pm

Love the pics of the girls engaged in their fashion work/play!

Believe it or not – my 4-year old son would be absolutely in love with this. He is so into creating various styles for his barbies (my barbies from childhood) as well as creating his own fashions on himself (this is a struggle for Daddy – especially when Isaac wants to go out to eat in a lite blue dress and a tiara).

Anyway — here is hoping he wins this super cool kit. Thanks for hosting the giveaway :)

My Granddaughter would love this!

Wow! future fashion designers in the making! :D
It’s a pretty good product, too since there’s no sewing or anything. You won’t have to worry about your daughters pricking their fingers from a needle. :)

I know my daughter wants to make all kinds of fashion when she grows up and the way all of her pictures she made look online and on paper she might just be able to.
