You know that a product is going to be a hit when your child ignores you saying wait until I'm ready and starts cracking on with it! These are a traditional Japanese kokeshi dolls which are hand painted to give to friends. The set comes with 3 dolls, paints, brush and decorations. There are clear instructions (which my daughter as usual failed to take out of box and read!). The most important instruction is to wait 15 minutes between coats which it recommends doing by rotating through the 3 dolls in turn.
You then attach a message to the doll and insert a secret message into the space underneath.
