If you want your kid to do something other than stare at a monitor all day, Alice Melvin's 'Cut out and dress Mr and Mrs Peg' paper dolls could be the answer. They are also a slice of pure nostalgia for the adult involved, two dolls for you (or your child) to cut out and dress in one of the two old fashioned outfits that is included for each doll in the set.
Melvin is an illustrator, book designer and artist and both the dolls and the outfits, including the bathing suits pictured above, are charming. If you like the style of her work, she's due to have her second children's book published by the Tate in September this year.
The set costs £5 from her online store
