GO-GETTER GIRLS
It's My Biz from Fashion Angels is a set of activity kits that help tween girls blend their passion and creativity with smart business skills. The kits have business plans, materials to keep stock, create business cards, etc., so tweens can start their own mini-businesses like cupcake bakeries, t-shirt shops, nail salons and jewelry stores. This product is different from traditional tween toys as it helps them learn fundamental business skills early-on, that can also be used later in life. Available in mass retailers like Barnes & Noble - as well as many specialty toy shops.
