Medieval Dress Up Crown or Tiara

Your child has the power to transport herself to medieval times, with a dash of inspiration from these fun head pieces. The pink princess tiara features jewel, flower and ribbon details. Or, go for the King Arthur look with the reversible crown: the rubied, red velvet side is for kingly duties, and the silver side is for knight business. Don't be fooled, make believe is serious business. It's crucial to the development of creativity, empathy, and problem-solving skills. If your child really falls for the royal trappings, you can turn an old sheet into a cape, or spring for one of these sparkly reversible ones for $34.98. (Hearthsong, $9.98)
