I was sent this item to review and waited until my eldest Grandson K was coming to stay for the weekend.
K was really pleased as he loves this Disney Film – Finding Dory. This is for children aged 4 upwards but I would veer towards a little older as the designs are quite complex. K is 9. The time for allowing these to dry is an hour so a little patience is needed to get the finished product.
The box on the rear, gives full details of contents inside. There are the templates to make 4 characters. a bead palette, design table, bead pen, sprayer, layout tray and 11 colours of beads. Full instructions are also given.
Due to his age K was able to open the bead bags and put into the palette independently
K placed the template under the layout tray and began his design. He found the bead pen really awkward to use so I gave him a pair of normal tweezers. K was fine then. This may not be the case with other children but worked in our instance.
Once K had completed his design he sprayed lightly and left to dry.
It was brilliant once it had dried completely and peeled from the frame. We then left on the windowsill to finish drying and harden off a little more.
This was his finished result. K then went on to make the other characters in this kit. There is enough beads to make one of each design. You can also buy refill packs so you can make them again.
This playset kept my grandson busy for hours and he thoroughly enjoyed it. There was no mess and it tidied up neatly into the palette when he had finished.
Aquabeads Finding Dory Playset retails at a price of £19.99.
