The Make+Believe Shop will be launching soon! I just finished ordering all of our products and decided that that I'd share some interesting information. There are a lot of products out there to choose from and I wanted to make sure that I was picking high quality items that are also true to their advertising. If a paint says "washable," is it too much to expect it to actually be washable?? As a parent, I've experienced first hand what it's like when I let my daughter finger paint with "washable" paints, only to find out after doing the laundry that her yellow dress is now practically tie-died with blue and red stains. I'm all about getting messy and don't even mind stained clothes, but I do mind when a product boldly pronounces itself to be washable when it clearly isn't.
So here is a little research I did while choosing children's "washable" tempera paint to sell in my shop.
