I brought this set for my daughter who is 8 years old for christmas, she has been using before in her afterschool clubs and really love working with them. Since opening thm are home has been over run with this aqua bead models that she has created and not a day has goe by that a new one has not popped up. She has been so nuts about this craft toy that we have already gone and brought 4 more refill packets to keep her going and even there are now ruuning out lol. I have to admit that I have even had a few goes my self and loved how easy it is to join in with her.
Great art and craft for all.

I wouldn't buy any more of these! My daughter is 6yrs old and although she quite enjoyed putting the basic 2D shapes together she found the 3D ones difficult to get to stick together (sometimes having to spray them again and again). They also took hours to dry and the 3D ones especially had to each be done in stages which meant waiting 7 or 8 hours and even overnight, it must have taken nearly 2 days to create one flower alone! Not worth the money - Hama beads are far better!
