SmartLab Toys Product Review #Giveaway and #Discount

Crafts have been a integral part of our household all of my life, so when the opportunity came to try out SmartLab Snap Fashion Jewelry Studio, I knew that it would be something that Robyn and I could enjoy doing together!

The Snap Fashion Jewelry kit is a fun way to personalize your look and I really like that the snaps are interchangeable so you can keep creating without having to spend a lot more money!  I also really like that this art kit lets you take fabric and other finds from around your house to personalize the jewelry.  This kit would be great for a sleep over or summer activity with your child.  The step by step directions were easy to follow and the kit itself was easy to set up.

The kit contained:
  • A book bedazzled with ideas
  • Custom customizable snap maker
  • 25 domes and backs snaps to cover with fabric
  • 5 necklace and bracelet snaps
  • 2 snap rings
  • Necklace with hook and clasp
  • Charm attachment
  • 16 - 1.5" precut fabric circles (8 styles, 2 each)
  • 12" ribbon
  • 12 birthstone gems
  • 5ml bottle of glue

I worried that Robyn might be too old at 13 for a kit like this, but that's the beauty of it... she was able to create things that suited her mood and personality - and she recycled pieces of old favorite clothing so that her buttons had special meaning and wearability for her!  Robyn's only complaint was that the rings were very juvenile looking - but that's to be expected from a kit like this.  SmartLab recommends this kit for ages 7 and up, and I agree.
The SmartLab Snap Fashion Jewelry Studio retails for $24.99.

SmartLab Toys offers educational and creative toys/kits as well as books for kids ages 4 and  up. Your kids will be learning without even knowing it - with everything from dinosaurs to spa treatments, and prices starting as low as $7, this is the place to stock up for summer 
fun!  Robyn wants to try out the All Natural Spa Day kit - and I have to say that it sounds intriguing, even to me.
