Makeover Littlest Pet Shop Toys

Updated on April 19, 2011

It's time to play Littlest Pet Shop Beauty Shop (for real!).

Pull Out the Littlest Pet Shop Pets, Paint Pens, Nail Polish, Nail Polish Remover and Jewels!

Littlest Pet Shops are easy to customize with your own decorations, and if you mess up just use some more fingernail polish remover and start over again! At my house we customize all our doubles and triples (sometimes hundreds of time as they all go back to the beauty shop).

Just one word of caution: real Littlest Pet Shop Beauty Salon should be played with an adult (since fingernail polish remover and paint are being used).

Preteens LOVE Customizing LPS too!

It's a great activity to do with your preteen - not too childish and great for creativity!

First You'll Need a Beauty Parlor

Unfortunately, Hasboro no longer makes the salon for Littlest Pet Shop. But no worries - since we're customizing anyway, we can use our imagination to change the daycare play set into a makeover station!

This Littlest Pet Shop set comes with a salon chair, brushes, combs, a blow drier and a magazine to read while in the witing area.

 

Have a Preteen LPS Makeover Party

Show them how to remove the paint, and create their own works of art! They'll love it, and you'll know they're having good creative fun!

Bling Your Littlest Pet Shop Pet

After you've repainted, and the pet has dried bling her with some 3D stickers!

Now for the REAL LPS Makeover supplies!

Adults should be around to use these supplies.

Easy Make Overs with Acrylic Paint Pens

I usually purchase mine at the craft store, because you can get all sorts of colors, but you can also order them from Amazon. Just make sure to get fine tipped paint pens. The big ones don't work very well except for doing the white of the eyes,

If you don't like the makeover

just erase and try, try again!

Remove Paint from a Littlest Pet Shop Toy

Careful with this stuff - it's very strong and will remove ALL the paint on your Littlest Pet Sop Pets! You have to use 100% Acetone to get the job done. It could be messy though - I'd recommend putting some plastic down, and rubber gloves too.

Use a Sponge/Brush to Remove Paint from a Littlest Pet Shop

I use several tools to remove Littlest Pet Shop paint. I use a toothbrush for hard to reach areas (between creases) and to clean off dirt. I use an old rag sometimes too (one that I don't care that gets stained with the paint I'm removing). But by far, my favorite tool is these cheap throw away sponge brushes.

These sponge brushes work great with 100% acetone nail polish remover. They easily take off the paint that comes on a Littlest Pet Shop toy, and are inexpensive enough that you can just throw them away when you're done.
