Mixy - "Fashion's A Snap" Bead Jewellery Kit Review

This week, we were sent to review two bead jewellery kits from Mixy by Wooky Entertainment.  These kits are aimed at children aged 5 years and older so even my son joined in!  We spent a lovely afternoon creating, un-creating and re-creating many different designs - some practical and some slightly wacky!

The beads easily but securely clip together with a satisfying "click" and can be made to any length (number of beads permitting of course!).  The bonus for me which makes these kit great is that there is no fiddly threading but the beads look as if they have been threaded so you can create jewellery that does not look "pre-school" if you know what I mean!  Older children would be happy using these beads and another advantage is that your creations can be dismantled and new designs created!

There are a generous amount of beads in each set and, of course, additional packs all work together so there can be no end to the amount you create!

Each pack also has it's own special shiny themed beads and one mystery bead(!) - these add a lovely touch as pendants on necklaces or charms on bracelets.

Both of my children (8 & 5) were thrilled with these kits and may daughter has asked "Santa" for them as part of her Christmas present!  Already, I hear you say(!) but she was sooo impressed that this is the first thing on her list!  So a definite thumbs up from us.

Mixy "Fashion's A Snap" kits can be bought at various toy shops, including Armadillo Toys, priced from just £3.50!
