We made some Beautiful Beados Creations with our Beados Glitter Quick Dry Design Studio
Beados are the magic beads that join together with a simple spray of water! They're a whole new world that you can make one bead at a time! Choose a template and make up your design using the Beados beads. Spray it with water and wow - you've created Beados!
My girls saw Beados on the TV and have wanted them ever since so when the Beados Glitter Quick Dry Design Studio from Character Options arrived, they were over the moon. This set costs £19.99 and is aimed at children aged 4 and over due to the choking hazards of small parts. My youngest Ryan is 4 and loved having a go making his own Beados creation. My girls aged 7 and 12 also loved this set. It's a great set which is easy for all ages to use, everyone can have a go - even grown ups like me. Yes I did have a go too.
You pick a template from the selection provided and place it under your tray. You then pop the Beados into the tray, the pictures show you which colour to put where making it really easy to follow. If my 4 year old can do it, anyone can. There is a pair of tweezer type things which you can use to pick up the Beados or you can just use your fingers like Ryan did.
Ryan created his teddy bear all by himself and had lots of fun doing it. Once the Beados are all in place on your mat you spray them with water and pop them under the air dryer to dry. We left them for around 10 minutes to dry fully before removing them. 10 minutes to a child is quite a long time but it reality 10 minutes is hardly any time at all.
This set comes with 500 Beados which means that you can make lots of creations. We made a total of 6 creations between us and still have some Beados left over.
Overall I am happy to say that all of us really enjoyed having a go at making our very own Beados creation. It's easy to do and lots of fun. The glittery Beados made our creations extra pretty. We made a bunny, a teddy bear, an ice cream and a bird. We also made a horse and a pretty crown too. The possibilities of what you can create are endless.
We stuck to the design templates that were provided but if you're more creative than me you could go free hand and try your own designs. I'm not that brave but you might be.
We happily scored the Beados Glitter Quick Dry Design Studio a fun rating of 4/5.
Disclosure: We were sent our Beados sample in return for an honest review.
