We all got stuck in The kit has coloured cords/ charms / shells / metal beads and sequins more then enough for the 12 projects plus more , All of the children did need help with the knots and treading the smaller beads onto the cord. The step by step guide is really clear and easy to follow only problem we found as doing this as a group was we had to keep passing the leaflet around.
After around an hour of making ( and snacking & playing ) all of the children had made at least one item of jewellery , the kit recommends that you start at the beginning and work through the projects. We didn't do this as all of the children had a grown up helper but i do this would be best if it was a solo use. The kit is for ages 8+ i would say this is around the right age marking if the child was to be making alone but Bodhi who is 4 1/2 and he really enjoyed the kit and could do maybe 75% of the tasks ?
I was worried that the older boys wouldn't want to make anything as i feared they might have seen it as a girl thing to do but they seemed to enjoy it more then the 14 year old girl ! Bodhi even made a matching shell bracelet to give to his little girl friend at school.
Over all we found the kit easy to use and a lovely way to spend the afternoon out in the sunshine, you can buy the kits and many others from interplay.co.uk direct, amazon , toys r us and many more online and in stores the RRP is £9.99 ad seeing as your get everything you need in the kit and could easily make 15-20 items i think this is a great products, and prefect for the older harder to buy for child. Thank you to interplay for sending us the kit to review.
