Every day is a good day for superhero pretend-play. So I couldn’t be more excited to discover these magnetic dress-up paper doll kits by a company that we already love, Petit Collage.

(Psst…did you catch their adorable mermaid playset in our list of the coolest holiday gifts for kids under $15?)

Basically we love everything she designs, and these are no exception. I just adore how a three year old can get into them the same as a ten year old.

In classic paper doll style, the kits are terrific for inspiring children’s creativity. Pick from themes like superheroes, fairy tales, and best friends, with enough pieces that allow for up to 200 different outfit possibilities. Since each kit comes with two dolls, your child can play with both, or invite a friend for more fun. We can never find enough ways to teach sharing, right?

And because they’re magnetic, they’re great for travel — or just for those of us who hate vacuuming after every single creative play period.

The kits come with a handy storage box, which is just as fun as the dolls themselves. And best of all, it’s a way of saying PUT THEM AWAY WHEN YOU’RE DONE, PLEASE.

And yes, those all caps are necessary, as you already know if you’ve got a kid who loves the paper style of paper dolls.
