Dylan’s Candy Bar With Crayola Fashion

There’s nothing quite like surprising my best girl with an after school adventure.  We recently hopped on the train to the Upper East Side to celebrate Crayola’s new creative product, My Virtual Fashion Show at Dylan’s Candy Bar.

With a mama who sews, Lucia has been playing budding designer for quite some time now.  Naturally, the design kit and app were right up her six-year-old ally.  Lucia eagerly adorned her sketchbook dolls with feathers, glitter, bold colors and gems galore.  With assistance, she photographed her designs into the free app and watched her original creations come to life in a virtual fashion show on the iPad.  Lucia was smitten with her designs and her distinguished pink hair selection.

New York fashion week ready, indeed!

With quite the slushy mess outside, the colorful candy bar was certainly an exciting respite.  And someone was bursting out of her skin when she discovered that there was a special jar of candy tucked into a thoughtful gift bag.

Special thanks to Vera and Audrey for a memorable mother/daughter date and creative experience!

My daughter received the above product and gift bag.  As always, opinions are my own.



  1. Hey, when Lucia becomes really famous designing outfits for the rich and famous, please remember me. 🙂

    I love your posts about your family. This looks like a fabulous mother daughter date indeed…a candy store is like every kid’s dream.
