We got sent some awesome Hama beads sets to try and review. Even though they are jewellery sets, it's ok for boys to have a try too and they make pretty unique presents. Raiden loves making jewellery for he's sister, nan and me.
We have used Hama beads before so we set up the first box which was the hama beads Gift Box
The sets come with everything yo need ( apart from the iron) beads, pegboards, cord, double sided tape, instructions, ironing paper & a colour printed design sheet.
The instructions are really easy to follow, adding the coloured beads on to the pegboards.
When the design is finished all you do is iron over the design with the ironing paper & leave to cool down.
The second set was the metallic jewellery kit it was slightly different as the beads are metallic and they ave some pretty cool flower beads too. This set contained some pretty groovy pegboards butterfly, heart & Hexagon.
Hama beads are recommend from 5 years, as children at this age have control of their own motor skills. Children and adults can have fun with the plastic beads, whether they string them, press them or iron them. They are completely safe should they be swallowed, and through the nature of the raw materials (PE) no harm will come to the child.
