Friend 2 Friend Friendship Bracelet Kit Review
Crafty kids and BFFs across the globe will find lots to love about the Friend 2 Friend Friendship Bracelet Kit (starting at $10, Amazon) by Alex Toys, according to Friend 2 Friend Friendship Bracelet Kit reviews we found online and in our own testing. A bracelet-weaving tutorial in a box, this arts-and-crafts kit comes with two color-coded foam looms, a rainbow of embroidery thread, and tools and beads for embellishment. The manufacturer recommends this toy for kids aged 7 to 16, although children on the young side of that spectrum will probably need help. In our Friendship Bracelet Kit reviews, our eight-year-old toy tester found it took some time to ramp up her bracelet-making skills, and she needed the guidance of her mom to get the hang of it. Once she got the pattern down, she said it was pretty easy and lots of fun to do.
Other users' experiences vary. One mom posting a Friend 2 Friend Friendship Bracelet Kit review on Amazon says her older teens found the kit challenging but another Friend 2 Friend Friendship Bracelet Kit review reports that a six-year-old was able to create her own jewelry with a little help from mom. Many adults found it a fun activity to do with or alongside their children, according to Friend 2 Friend Friendship Bracelet Kit reviews, and some note they even bought one for themselves. For those who find the directions unclear, one Friend 2 Friend Friendship Bracelet Kit reviewer commenting on Amazon recommends watching the instructional video available online.
Our child tester and several online commenters entertained themselves for hours with this kit, but there is a learning curve involved. The Friend 2 Friend Friendship Bracelet Kit scores points with crafty kids and makes an excellent travel activity, but can be frustrating for those without stick-to-itiveness.
