Let’s see what’s in the Toca Life Box “Hair Salon” box!
Everything was shipped in a fun tabloid-style box featuring some of the characters from the ever-popular Toca Boca games/apps.
A peek inside!
A postcard from “Leon” let the recipients of the box know that he and his friend Rita are having a major hair emergency and they need their styling skills to fix it!
All of the contents of the box were neatly wrapped in three separate bundles, making the unboxing even more exciting.
A handy guide listed the entire contents of the box, revealed how to get started, and the different ways to style & accessorize.
Here’s a peek at everything in our Toca Life Box “Hair Salon” box!
Head & Head Supports
A reversible “head” came with two supports that will allow it to stand on its own as you style its ‘do.
Speaking of ‘do… The paper “wigs” above were to serve as the actual hair needing your styling skills. There were 6 wigs in all, in various colors and “textures” (straight, wavy).
What’s a professional stylist without their all-important styling tools? The box included a functional crimper (for paper, of course), scissors, and a mini curling “iron”. Cute!
A sheet of colorful die-cut accessories was provided to add even more flair to your client’s look. Accessories included sunglasses, hair clips, beads, bows, and more.
Hairband Stickers & Reusable Face Stickers
There were also two different sets of stickers. — One full of colorful “hairbands” to attach to hair, and one with various reusable facial features to give the clients a little more character.
Toca Life Cord Charm
The final item in the box was an adorable sloth character cord charm. My girls immediately recognized this guy from the Toca Boca app they’ve been playing for a few months, Toca Life World. The sloth can be snapped onto your headphones/charging cord, or strung by its loop onto a zipper pull or backpack.
My kiddos were excited to get started and began by assembling the “head” by inserting the two supports at the bottom.
It’s a good thing the face stickers were reusable, because the features were changed a LOT before deciding which one looked best.
After the face was done, it was time to drape a wig over the client and tear off the perforated strips along the bottom.
Clearly, this poor girl desperately needed a trim!
Once the bangs were at the desired length, a little crimping was in order.
My kiddos were surprised at how easy it was to create the fun zig-zag design with the styling tool above.
Finishing the look with a cute heart-shaped hair clip.
Makeover, complete! 😀
Daughter #2’s turn! — She went with a wavy pink wig.
She’s clearly as skilled at trimming bangs as I am. 😉
Giving the curling iron a try… She wasn’t too fond of the curls, so she ended up switching to a yellow wig…
Again, the bangs were given an… edgy look and accessorized with a couple hair clips.
Another satisfied client! 😀
The Toca Life Box “Hair Salon” box was a definite hit with my girls! They were excited to point out the different characters they recognized from the Toca Boca apps and couldn’t wait to get stylin’. They love anything crafty, so getting to style and CUT “hair” was a fun activity for them. I also appreciated the fact that it required very little parent involvement… It was all on them. (Yay, mom time!) 😀 — Remember, for a limited time you can save 10% on your first Toca Life Box with coupon code “TLAFFILIATE10“!
