I bought this for my 11yr old daughter. She loves making things so took to it straight away. My only criticism is that the actual crochet needle is large and chunky. It is quite difficult to manipulate and get back into the wool and when you do it leaves you with a large and loose stitch. Good directions, easy for my daughter to understand and get on with. Just means a trip down to the shop to buy a crochet hook that she can use.

A Christmas present for my(9-year old) niece who was itching to crotchet with her Mum, this kit provided hours of fun and has developed her crochet skills sufficiently to move to more adult patterns. Highly recommended and great value.

Bought this to teach myself and grand daughter to crotchet, instructions very easy to understand and you get everything you need to make items, I am still teaching myself and found it great value for money

This toy was a gift for a pupil. She was in year 3, so she really liked it, but she found it really hard at first to crochet. It is a skill she is persevering with and she's getting there.

This kit is alright, it provides a decent selection of basic materials. It would be good for a child who knew someone who could already crochet.
However, the instructions are poor and I found myself having to look online to find out how to do the majority of stitches. The book suggests having someone who knows what they are doing start for you and then you can finish off; not very helpful if you don't know anyone who can crochet! The hook is not bad to start with however it becomes a little chunky when you want to move on. Wool is a nice selection of colours. I'm still using the large, plastic needle however, possible the most useful item!
Overall, would make a nice gift as it looks well but probably not the greatest teaching aid.

This little kit is an excellent buy for the beginner and child. It has clear instructions with diagrams for both right and left handed learners. It explains the basic stitches, step by step and theres enough wool inside to make a few decent items.
The only fault it has is the hook. It was a little bulky and clumsy to use. But nothing a trip down the shop to get a decent size 4mm/5mm hook wont cure!
And at this price, this kit is a steal, you wont be disapointed!

Crochet Art is really good. It's alot of fun. It teaches you crochet and you can make alot of crocheted items. It's incredibly good fun and satisfying. I would definitely tell people to try it - you'll love it too.

As soon as my step daughter got this gift she was delighted. She sat down trying to teach her younger brother how to crochet as she had already learnt the basic steps with me and i thought it best that she have her own kit.

I agree with one of the other reviewers that the needle provided is a little to chunky for a beginner - i would have thought a 3.5 or 4 sized needle best, so we went out on a crochet shopping trip and got some more needles for her to have in her set.

It's the perfect toy for starting out or improving skills and would recommend it to any child with a creative streak for needlecraft/fashion.

Brought this for my friend who had a craze on knitting, she was chuffed too bits and pleased with all the things you can make. I would look at the age reccomendation as she said its really difficult to learn and has not, as yet, made the bag that is pictured because of this. Maybe for more expierenced crochet folk!

I bought this set as I thought it would be good enough to teach my granddaughter to crochet. Unfortunately the instructions in the set were for left handed users only, and it was difficult to follow them. The contents of the kit were good, but I have had to get instructions on how to crochet from a friend.
