Horizon Made By Me Ultimate Bead Pets
(Horizon Group $21.99)Here's a great big box with a whole lot of beads and supplies for making a menagerie of animal pet charms that can decorate zipper pulls, bracelets, hats, whatever. The kit contains 1600 beads, 103 are alphabet squares, other are done in bold translucent, metallic and opaque colors. There's a good supply of wax cording, keys rings, clips and storage boxes. To assemble the creatures there are easy to follow instructions. Marked for 6 and up, we think sixes will need a good deal of adult help. Depends on their dexterity and patience level, too. That said, it's one of those craft kits that helps develop both fine motor skills and stickability. We think older 7s, 8s and even 9s will enjoy this even more.
