ID help - pink fashion tracing desk
« on: Thursday 19 January 2012, 02:34 am »
I'm hunting a light-up pink tracing desk. I don't know what brand it was, maybe crayola or rose-art. It came with people shaped stencils for the body outline and you would put your outline on top of pages of clothes, and trace them on top of the body outline. Some stickers were included as well as a blue plastic card with textured ridges to make your clothes textured. The "people" would almost have a Barbie look to them. The desk would open up and store all the papers and stencils. I think it ran on batteries and there was a light bulb inside where the storage space was. I think all the clothing items were in pink ink.

The closest thing I can find is the Crayola Light Up Tracing Desk - Fashion Designer but it looks too new age. This was a late 80s early 90s toy.

I know it wasn't Disney or Princess. It was a barbie-ish and/or real life looking.

Thanks so much, kimbojinks

I'll just start with the first things I could of think of, and we'll go from there.

None of these are light up, just wanted to make sure they weren't one of the ones with different plates that you used with crayons to make a rubbing.

I know you said no Disney, but I'll put one anyways. :-P

The plate/rubbing fashion designer isn't what I'm looking for, but I did have these too so thanks a million for the pictures.

I know for sure there was a light bulb on the inside, and the white plastic layer lifted up to store the supplies on the inside.

I had something like that it was purple and had pencil crayons in a little compartment in the handle. I remember mine was Beauty and the Beast but I don't remember the company or anything. I think it may have just been a knock-off to be honest. And it lit up too and there was special tracing paper too.

After seeing the picture I'm positive I had that Barbie Rub n' Color set. I love finding my old things that I forgot I even had through other people's posts :D

Was it like, a full-sized desk or a lap desk?

I had that Barbie Rub N' Color, too! I got super excited when I saw that picture.

No, everything was paper and you traced it layer by layer to create a picture. I want to say it was crayola or roseart, but the pictures looked lifelike and not cartoon like.
