I can’t tell you enough how much fun this was – sitting with the girls, watching them create jewelry and cakes, and then eating all the goodies afterwards – YUM!!
I was given the wonderfully fun opportunity to try – not one, but two Girl Gourmet products from JAKKS PACIFIC. Every moment the girls and I spent creating these delicious yummies were priceless. They thanked me for being a “reviewer” and then sent out a huge THANK YOU to Janis (JAKKS PACIFIC) and Kate (Life Love Beauty) for the wonderful products the girls were able to take part in reviewing.
The girls, for years, have been asking me to get them the typical “kid bakery” kit that you can normally buy at the local super store, but unfortunately it never happened. So needless to say, when they received the Girl Gourmet Cake Bakery and the Girl Gourmet Sweets Candy Bead Studio in the mail, it was all they could do to stay calm and “grown up” about it. I literally had to tell them to stop screaming a time or two because their voices were SO LOUD. I was honestly afraid the neighbors would think I was beating my kids or something.
Yes, they were filled with tears of joy, screams, and laughs. I swear it took me forever to set everything out. I even think the most agonizing moment of the “review”, for the girls, was sitting there waiting for me to set out the kits and take the pictures – I couldn’t help but laugh inside a few times.
So, without further adieu…
Let me begin by sharing my thoughts on the Girl Gourmet Sweets Candy Bead Studio, since this was the kit we tried first.
Where to begin… candy, candy, and more candy, that’s where! This kit is filled to the brim with candy galore. From the necklace string (candy) to the beads (candy) and the glitter & markers (candy) to the “glue” (candy) – everything is completely edible and considered a must-see! I should know, my girls made tons of great jewelry pieces and there was still a ton left over for my son and friend to make something special, not to mention all the candy that was eaten in between.
Girl Gourmet Sweets Candy Bead Studio comes complete with every candy imaginable (for making the perfect bracelet or necklace… 24 uniquely created ones at that), as well as the licorice rope, frosting glue tube, edible-ink markers, sprinkles, gummies, the instructional booklet (to help give ideas on what to create) and more. The suggested retail price is $19.99 and is recommended for kids ages 8 and up.
The Candy Bead Studio was a blast and a huge hit in my home, and I’m not just talking about the little ones. My sixteen-year-old son made his girlfriend a necklace filled, from one end to the other, with candy and a dear friend of mine (30 years old) made a beautiful “I love you” necklace for her hubby. Everyone agreed that this was a must have, as a gift, for anyone at all, even grownups! So, if you’re having a problem trying to find that perfect gift for your kids, a sweet Valentine gift, a secret Santa Party, or just because… this is the product you need. It will bring tons of laughs and unimaginable fun to any party.
I can’t stress how much fun this kit is for the whole family – no matter what your age, you’re going to LOVE the Girl Gourmet Sweets Candy Bead Studio!
