Do you have a little girl who loves all things sparkle and bling? If you do, I highly suggest that you check out Blingles, the popular arts and crafts line from Moose Toys. We were able to review Blingles Glimmer Glam Styler and Blinges Bling It Beauty Case and oh my goodness did we have fun.
We started by inviting a couple of girl friends to our house for a Blingles Play Date! The girls arrived and were excited to get started. I had set everything up in our dining room, including a plastic sheet on the table. Then the Mom’s went to work setting each set up.
My girlfriend Mrs. S helped set up the Blingles Bling It Beauty Case and assisted each child in making a special jeweled sticker. The way it works is that each child was given a template topped with a clear sticker mat. Then, using a gem pen the child carefully places each gem on the sticker mat, following the template. The girls really liked the heart and lipstick template, as well as the letters template.
Next Mrs. H. helped with the Blingles Glimmer Glam Styler. Now, just to let you know, this is a a GLITTER craft and the GLITTER will get everywhere, so take my advice and make sure to do it on a plastic tablecloth that can be cleaned or thrown away, ha, ha, ha!
This craft seems a bit complicated, but it is very simple… The way it works is that there small little jars filled with colored glitter with rolling pins built into the tops You place the sticker template that you want in the area in the middle. Each sticker template is made up of different pieces so that you can remove one piece at a time to roll each part with a different colored glitter.
We decided to start with this kitty cat… so we removed the top piece of the top of the head…
Next we rolled the gold glitter over that top piece, which is now sticky, so that the glitter will stick to it.
Next, we removed the big face piece, leaving stickiness for the glitter to stick to…
This is when we removed the top part of the collar…
We rolled the collar with silver and moved onto the body piece… by now you should get the idea… When we were finished we peeled off the sticker and here is our finished piece…
The girls absolutely loved doing both of these craft. Both were a bit time-consuming, but once the girls understood what to do, they had hardly any issues and really enjoyed their creations. One thing that they did struggle with a bit was the GEM PEN on both items… the Moms had no issues as our dexterity is a bit more precise so the girls did get a bit frustrated, but stuck to it.
In the end there WAS glitter everywhere, but that is just par for the course… both arts and crafts items were a huge hit and the girls asked to come back for another Blingles Play Date!
