REVIEW/GIVEAWAY: My Friendship Bracelet Maker and My Ribbon Barette Maker (Christmas Gift Guide)

Spread the love

I have the COOLEST toy for the school age girl on your Christmas list!

What girl doesn’t like to make friendship bracelets or wear pretty barrettes? Well okay I’m sure there are some girls not interested in this but my girls sure are!

Now your child can make friendship bracelets with ease and without putting a hole in her pants by pinning the thread with a safety pin to her knee (how I made bracelets when I was younger.)

The Friendship Bracelet Maker has a clip to hold the bracelet in place, spaced out slots for each of the strings to keep them untangled and a slide out tray with multi coloured threads and instructions. The instructions tell you how to do a basic bracelet but you can check out the website for more patterns via video or pdf.

My girls are a bit young for friendship bracelets at 4 and (almost) 6 but they were able to do it with lots of help. I still want to try making one myself. Just by helping them though I was able to see how nice it was to have the strings all separated instead of all jumbled up! No more pinning it to your pants either.

My Ribbon Barrette Maker comes with 8 metal clips that you can turn in to a beautiful 2 colour hair decoration with beads that hang down. It comes with many different coloured ribbons and beads and the 8 clips. The top part has the spacers to hold your ribbons in place when they are not in use and a barrette holder for the barrette.

My girls loved the barrette maker and even at ages 4 and (almost) 6, they were able to make their own barrette with a bit of help. My only qualm is that the barrette don’t stay put in my girl’s hair but then they have very thick crazy hair and they roll all over the place when the play. I suppose if it was in their hair during an event where they would be sitting nice the whole time, it would stay in better.
