PomPom Wow is a pom-pom maker toy that taps into the rise of maker culture to empower young girls to personalize everything from jackets to pens and bedroom decor.

Everything that's included in the PomPom Wow can be neatly packed away into a plastic box, which doubles as a carrying case for the kit. The low-tech toy includes just about everything a child needs to create fun pom-pom accessories of all shapes and sizes.

While pom-pom toys have been around for decades, this kit made a stunning debut at this year's New York Toy Fair by emphasizing its all-new approach to teaching girls artisanal craftsmanship through customization. Like this pom-pom maker handicraft toy, there other playsets are emerging to teach kids useful life skills like weaving and knitting.
