“ Brand: Avon / Type: Other Beauty Accessories „
I bought one of these sets a couple of years ago for my daughter, and recently bought a couple more off eBay. I think they were £5 a set when I bought them years ago but I picked them up for £3 each on eBay.
Sleepovers are pretty much an every weekend occurrence in our house. You generally cannot see my daughter's floor due to numerous children sleeping on it. Although young girls seem to bring with them every bit of makeup, music, clothes they own, they never manage to remember toothbrushes, brushes, or wash kits. I like to keep some of these to hand, so when they forget, we don't have a huge panic while they get their frantic parents to drop them off.
The kits themselves consist of a light pink soft polyester bag, a soft flannel, a small hair brush which is quite hard but practical. There is also a scrunchie and a toothbrush holder. They are all a strawberry milkshake shade of pink which is very pretty and all have red hearts dotted across them. The scrunchies are always welcomed and generally the first thing that goes missing from the kits. I have to replace them frequently. The only thing I think is missing from this kit, would be a cheap toothbrush, I have to admit buying a set from our local poundshop, 10 for £1 so each child has their own separate toothbrush to take home. For £3 this makes a nice gift for a young girl, it is also handy to have in case of a sleepover emergency. I have stocked up on these and think they are a godsend.
Avon are dropping some of their prices in the run up to Christmas the same as a lot of retailers are and this is one of their best bargains that I have spotted in the recent brochures. It is presently being sold for £5 and is only £3 for A List Bronze members on the website.
The pale pink toiletries bag is really soft and sweet as well as being good quality. Inside there is a flannel, a toothbrush holder, a miniature hairbrush and a scrunchie all in matching colours with the little red heart pattern on.
There are lots of cheap girls gift sets out in the shops every year but what makes this stand out is its quality. This is a nicely made item that incorporates good quality materials with a bold, even pattern.
I have bought up several of these for Christmas gifts and even bought an extra one to keep as a spare in case of an emergency. I have a lot of young female relatives and you never know when an emergency sleepover is going to happen. I only had to pay £2.50 each for my sets as a president's club member so at that price I do not mind if it never even gets used!
