Friends 4Ever Bracelet Kit: Growing Tree Toys Review

I have only been a mom for three and a half years, but I have been a trained Early Childhood Educator for over 10 years and I know the value of play-based learning. If I find a toy that is high quality in make and design, is fun and teaches my children something, I know I have found a toy worth buying.

One company out there that provides fun, educational toys for children of all ages is Alex Toys. Through the Growing Tree Toys Blog Network Program, I was recently sent the Alex Friends 4Ever Bracelet Kit to review.

The Friends 4 Ever Bracelet Kit from Alex Toys allows kids to show the world that they are so important to each other that they share and wear their imaginative bracelet masterpieces everywhere they go! A super-stocked craft kit for best friends, the Friends 4 Ever Bracelet Kit includes 4 color-coded foam looms, which allow kids to make 2 distinct bracelet styles in 8 funky patterns; 22 colors of floss; funky beads for adding special accents; and a beading needle, making it easy for kids to create unique friendship bracelets in no time. Plus, this fabulous Friends 4 Ever Bracelet Kit is the friendship kit that features a convenient, take-me-anywhere storage suitcase with handle for on-the-go fun that friends will love. The newest and trendiest way to make bracelets, the Friends 4 Ever Bracelet Kit from Alex Toys is the ultimate jewelry kit for kids that have already decided that they are "BFF's!" Instructions included.

I have been getting quite a kick over the fact that all the toys and television shows that I watched as a child are coming back 20+ years later (okay, seriously I just scared myself!)...Smurfs, Strawberry Shortcake, My Little Pony, Care Bears, Stirrup Pants, and now Friendship Bracelets. 

Alex Toys has put out a great starter kit for young kids to make and trade these bracelets with all their friends.  Any child interested in crafts, and making things will be happy to receive this kit! The colors of the yarn are bright and fun, and the yarn itself is quite durable. I very much agree with the age recommendation of 8+ for the Alex Friends 4Ever Bracelet Kit, as it does take stronger fine motor skills to learn to make the bracelets. That said, once your child gets going, they will be begging to by more floss from your local craft store! 

This kit is a perfect summer craft idea that will keep your child busy for hours. It will also make a fantastic Christmas gift idea!

I highly recommend the Alex Friends 4Ever Bracelet Kit and give it a huge thumbs up!

BUY IT: You can purchase the Alex Friends 4Ever Bracelet Kit online, through Growing Tree Toys.
