Fashion Plates are still around?
I remember when I was a little girl and had the original plates set. Did you have one of these, too?
How I loved "designing" various outfits using the mix and match templates the kit came with. Boy, I remember when the crayon it came with wore out and my parents did not know where to get me a replacement (was mail order not a thing for them back then, I wonder?). So I took out one of my old box of school crayons, peeled off the wrapper from my black crayon, and used it as a replacement tool for my fashion plates kit.
The crayon was not the perfect replacement. I had to learn not to rub it too hard against the paper because it was too soft and tended to smear across the paper. Once I mastered just the right amount of pressure to use, I was back to creating and coloring more fashions. It was heaven!
