Me and my bff Sarah @glassandfur are both 20, and while other girls our age seem to want to HAVE children, we find ourselves wanting to BE children. We like to colour in, draw on the pavement with chalk, play with modelling clay, bake with Pingu cupcake kits, watch cartoons, blow bubbles, make forts, mess around with facepaints, etc etc etc... and why should this be frowned upon? IT'S FUN.

If you are also a big kid at heart, this swap is for you!

You will have one partner to whom you will send AN AWESOME PARCEL OF SUPERFUN, meaning KID STUFF. Use your imagination! What kid stuff do you love? Check your partner's profile and try to find kid things they'll enjoy.

Some ideas are... crayons, colouring books, paint-by-numbers, modelling clay, sweets and chocolate, chalk, bubble blowers, stickers, little toys/games/kits, figurines and models, collectable cards/stamps/stuff, character merchandise, craft items (feathers, pipe cleaners, googly eyes, foam and cardboard shapes, glitter...), miniature things, friendship bracelets, badges, temporary tattoos, edible cake decorations, plush animals, stationery...

Here's a giant list of 'things kids like' I just found via Google, if you need more inspiration: http://taralazar.wordpress.com/2007/11/04/199-things-that-kids-like/

The minimum spend for this swap is £5 (which at current exhange is $7.45) before postage. Remember that the name of the game is AN AWESOME PARCEL OF SUPERFUN - make your parcel live up to that title! You'll have two weeks from when partners are assigned to assemble and post your parcel.

This is now an international swap! You'll need at least 3 ratings of 5 for postal swaps to be able to play.
