Miss M couldn’t wait to get started and began by separating the pre designed strips and picking out her favourites. You can then add any of the stickers and gems to decorate them further. Some even have a space to write on and she did one with her name, one for Mister B and one for Mummy!
Once you have decorated the strip, you place it in the laminator. You can then easily pull the strip through and it gets cleverly covered by the roll of tape giving it a shiny, more durable finish. You then pop each end in the little hole punch slot and press down on the purple button to make a hole in each end. The ends then simply clip together with one of the plastic clips that just snap together.
Once Miss M had made the first band with my guidance, she was off making all different designs for each of us. Mister B eagerly watched picking the strips and stickers he wanted Miss M to use for his band. Miss M at 6 yrs old is the perfect age for this, she could create them independently and sat happily engrossed making bracelets with her little Cool Bandz machine for much of the morning.
This is a fun creative toy that young girls will love. There are plenty of patterned strips to keep them occupied although I would have liked to have seen a few more clips and gems included in the kit. You can also use any paper strips of your choice, so if you have some pretty paper, or fancy drawing your own design, you can and then place it in the sticky tape laminator to strengthen it and turn it into a bracelet.
All reviews are my own and my family’s opinions and the Cool Bandz was sent to us in order to write the review.
