My Tape Town by ALEX TOYS is an interesting set. Inside there are punch out shapes for cars and buildings, trees and more. There are also stickers paper cups and six rolls of tape. Andrew has been more and more interested in using tape. He got into his sister’s tape a few weeks back and that was a disaster that made everyone upset.
