“ Brand: ELC / Type: Craft Supplies „
My daughter is at a lovely age right now (4) where she loves to make and create things and making jewellery is one of the things she loves to do. She received quite a few bead kits over Christmas and her birthday and this has been one of our favourite ones.
I think what my little girl liked, (I say liked because we have now used all the beads and made all jewellery) is the box this set comes in. It's a gorgeous little pink patterned box with a bead handle and a clasp that allows you to carry it around as a little bag so although we have finished the kit my little girl still gets use out of it. We all know how much girls love their bags and my little girl is no exception and carries this case around all the time acting like a grown up which she loves.
The beads are wonderful and colourful in this kit. They are made up of just small round beads and then heart shaped beads and some quite large flower shaped beads. I like the fact that they are quite large as my little girl was easily able to thread the string through to make the bracelets which is good because it meant she could make this with only a little help from me needed when we had to tie up the ends. This gave her a wonderful sense of achievement and she wears these bracelets with pride knowing she made them. Most of the beads are made from a very hard wearing plastic but the flowers are made of a bendable foam/rubber type material so they bend when they are in her wrist which is good because the hole is in the middle of the flowers so they lay quite large on the bracelet.
It's quite a small kit and you can only really make two nice looking bracelets with it so you do get a limited amount of time and fun from actually making the items but the fact that you can still carry the case around is great. There are so many different uses and my little girl initially used it as her new jewellery box and now like I've said above uses it as her handbag.
The set costs in the £5 which I think is a very fair price and is available from a Mothercare or on Amazon.
A pretty case containing everything you need to make heart and flower bracelets.Not suitable for children under 36 months due to small parts. Age range: From 3 years.
