Chocolate Emoji Maker – Review

Chocolate Emoji Maker from Zimpli Kids is exactly what it says on the box.  You get to make two emoji shaped chocolate bars using 100% Belgian chocolate.  The set is simple to use and gives kids something to make, then something to enjoy eating after!

In the box you will find:

  • 2 trays to use as moulds
  • stencil sheet
  • 2 sachets milk chocolate
  • 2 sachets dark chocolate
  • 2 sachets white chocolate

The instructions are clear to follow and there is a really good size sheet with 6 emoji stencils on to follow when drawing with the chocolate. They sit underneath the clear trays so you can follow the design.

It’s then a case of melting the bags of chocolate in a bowl of hot (not boiling) water for a few minutes, cutting a very small corner off of each bag and use them like a piping bag to cover the design.

You can pipe each colour on top of the others so there is no waiting around between the different chocolates.  Although bear in mind that you need to work fairy quickly to ensure the chocolate stays runny enough for a good design.  Once finished just leave in the fridge for half an hour or so before simply popping out of the plastic mould.

We are really pleased with the results of the Chocolate Emoji Maker, in fact the children were thrilled with the finished piece.  The size reminded me of one of those giant chocolate coins you get at Christmas time and was around half a centimetre in depth.

The verdict from the kids upon eating them – utterly delicious – which I guess comes from the set using 100%  Belgian chocolate.  This would make a great little present over the festive time or even for birthdays.  A definite extra to add to Santa’s sack this year!

Zimpli Kids also have lots of products to add fun to the bath tub or alternatively you could just do them in a bucket or large plastic storage box in the house.

First up is Gelli Baff – a firm favourite of my two who have been using it since 2013!  Even though they are getting quite big for bathing together, they insisted on putting on their swimmers and getting into a bath full of Gelli Baff to play together.

It’s so simple to use, you just run a bath as normal and then sprinkle over the contents of the Gelli Baff sachet and stir with your arm to allow the water to turn into a bright coloured jelly like substance.

There are various colours available such as blue, green, purple etc to give you a variety of options, this time we used the blue.  As you can see it’s a smooth but textured substance that the children just love.

My children have so much fun with this and after they’ve played with it for a while and it goes cold, we do add some warmer water which does make the Gelli Baff thinner but still fun to play in. In fact my children stayed in this bath for 1 hour and 20 mins this time!!!  Which to me says they clearly thought it was fun and thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

Just to add then when you are done, it’s best to add lots of water to thin it out even more and add the included sachet off salt which helps to break down the particles.  We have used this multiple times over the years and never had any issues with it passing through the drain.

Next up is Crackle Baff Colours which is a simple little sachet of crystals that literally turns the bath a different colour, but also upon sprinkling the crystals on top of the water they crackle away for a minute or so which is quite fun.  You don’t know what colour you will get in the packet and we got yellow which is my boy’s favourite colour so he was happy although it wasn’t the best to take pictures with – it was a very vibrant yellow in the bath though.

He’s a short clip so you can listen to the crackles:

Lastly is the SnoBall Play which again is activated by simply adding water.  We like to do this in a bucket and the children love a snow ball fight.  With the wet dull weather and dark evenings we haven’t really been able to have any garden play but check out my SnoBall Play post from earlier in the year when they had lots of fun outside.

All in all my children love Zimpli Kids products and we think they’d make perfect stocking fillers or great for small presents for friends.  They certainly get kids smiling and keep them entertained – go check them out now!

All reviews are my own and my family’s opinions. We are not paid for reviews although we do receive the product to try out and enable us to write the review.
