Beados Designer Gem Studio

Now its the school holidays I am pulling every available resource to keep the children busy during this awful weather we have been having. We love anything creative and the Beados Designer Gem Studio which retails at £19.99 and is right up our Lyla's street. It is suitable for children aged over 4 due to the small pieces in the set.
Beados are the magic beads that join together with a spray of water. No heat, no glue, no mess! Use your templates to make up your designs, spray with water and wow you've created Beados! Making precious Beados jewellery is easier than ever.
The gem studio requires only a little set up, you just need to clip the supporting frame onto the base and the bead loader and you're ready to go. The set contains
  • 1 Gem Studio
  • 500 Gem Beads
  • 1 Necklace with Clasp
  • 1 Additional Clasp
  • 2 Rubber Bands
  • 1 Necklace Pendant
  • 1 Ring
  • 6 Connector Plugs
  • 1 Bracelet
  • 5 Bracelet Discs
  • 2 Bead Trays
  • 6 Design Templates
  • 1 Bead Scoop
  • 1 Spray
We love the bead selector that allows you to sort all your beads into colour order, the bead selector is really easy to turn to. Once you have selected your gem colour you press the button on the bead pen and it loads your gems.
There are 6 design templates to chose from and make into whatever type of jewellery that you like. Its really simple to use and great for some hand eye coordination development. You match the colours of your beads to the colours in your design template. If you want to mix it up a bit and have some crazy designs then you can always just select what ever colours you like.
Once you have your completed design you simply spray it with water and leave it to set, you then connect it to whatever piece of jewellery you want to make. The set comes with 2 design trays so whilst one design is drying you can get busy making another piece. We made a few and found they held together really well and Lyla enjoyed making them. I think the fact you get 500 gems to start with is great as you can make lots of pieces. 
We think its a fab piece of kit for all these rainy days that we have been getting, its a great price for all the pieces you get in the kit. If you head over to the link above you can buy the Designer Studio as well as several add on kits.
