Beados seems like a nice craft that can keep the kids busy for some time. It could help to develop their motor skills, creativity and imagination. And, most parents like me will love the fact that it's not messy.
What is Beados?
Only one spray of water from the provided spray bottle is enough to join the beads together and make them adhere. There are only 3 simple steps in creating the designs: design, spray and then display.
Most sets come with 500-600 beads or gems, templates for creating designs, trays for display, a spray bottle, a tweezer pen and an instruction booklet.
Is Beados worth buying as a gift?
But there are a few negative comments from buyers, too. One said that the beads do not dry as fast. I guess that is why Beados has a Quick Dry Design Station kit, which allows the kids to dry their creations faster than just air drying them.
Another commenter said that the beads do not stick together as expected. Well, one Q and A I read did mention that users have to wait for the Beados to completely dry so that they will stick together. Perhaps, touching or moving it before it completely dries will create the non-sticking problem.
Choosing the Beados Quick Dry Design Station may be a good idea after all. Aside from the quick dryer, it comes with templates for a butterfly, ice cream cone, fish and fire truck – and more. Bead colors in the set include red, pink, yellow, purple, orange, black and white.
It’s the perfect combination for your child to create all sorts of designs for the template and many of his own creations. If your child loves crafts, you may want to check out the Beados S2 Glitter Quick Dry Design Station, which takes regular Beados and adds the shimmering of sparkly glitter.
Since there are more positive comments about the Beados beading kits, I think it is a good buy. It will provide your children with many hours of creativity and imagination.
Now, I would just have to see which one I will buy for my little girl. If you have bought this product, let me know how your kids like them in the comments below.
