See, this is why we love Project Runway. If any other reality show made toys for kids, they'd be action figures (and we do think a Tyra Banks doll with bendable arms would be a hit.) But Project Runway is about craft, not just wacky personalities, and so the Project Runway play set is so wholesome it's borderline geeky. Sold on Juvie ("Clothes and Gifts for Older Kids"), it comes with needles, thread, fabric, and a dress form. It's basically a Bravo-branded sewing kit, yet it seems like the sort of gift that would absolutely thrill all the 12-year-olds in your life. [Juvie via Style List]
