With half term upon us, I was grateful to have recently been sent this mermaid charm jewellery set to review. Available for £9.99 this super cute set includes everything your children will need to help them make some pretty cool mermaid jewellery.
There are plenty of beads and charms of all different shapes, sizes and colours. There’s enough thread for children to make a number of necklaces and bracelets, plus there are also 5 clasps.
Included in this set you’ll find:
• 75 Bicone Beads – blue, green and purple
• 45 Faceted Beads – pink, blue and turquoise
• 125 Round Beads – silver, fuchsia, purple and coral
• 20 Pearl Beads – pale gold and cream
• 10 Assorted Shell and Starfish Beads
• 5 Gold Colour Metal Charms
• 5 Silver Colour Metal Charms
• 10 Key Rings
• 5 Clasps
• 10 Clasp Beads
• 4m Stretch Cord
• 1 Instruction Booklet
Our girls are five years old so this set is perfect for them. The instruction booklet is really useful as it is full of ideas and tips on how to create your necklaces and bracelets.
Our girls loved threading the beads onto the cord. M usually gets bored very quickly when we do these kind of activities, but she actually sat and finished her necklace all by herself which I was very impressed by. I’m putting it down to the colourful beads and the mermaid charms, as M absolutely loved them!
All of the charms are well made and you can easily identify them, however one charm, the fish, didn’t have a hole punched into the loop so we were unable to use it which was a shame as R really wanted to use this one!
All in all the girls a bracelet and a necklace each. As well as being lots of fun to make, this set is great to help children develop their hand, eye co-ordination, plus M came up with her own pattern when making her bracelet which was to alternate the different shaped beads.
Overall, I have to say that the girls and I really did have lots of fun with this set. For £9.99, I think it’s great value for money.
For the purpose of this review we were sent the above kit. All views and opinions are 100% my own.
