Fiddly, but daughters loves it.,
This review is from: Aqua Beads Art Deluxe Set (Toy)
We've had an Aqua Beads set for just over a year, and my 5yo daughter LOVES creating with them in spite of the fact that placing the beads can be quite fiddly (even my 3yo will join her, although she doesn't have enough patience to complete a creation). Often I am called upon to rescue a design gone awry (and this is a challenge for my larger fingers), but the girls seem to love the whole process. Unfortunately the bonding procedure does not always produce a firm bond for all beads, and I have been unsuccessful at repairing fractured designs, or bonding beads that have few "neighbours"!
Aquabeads would be better if the "beads" were slightly larger, AND if they were more cubical in shape. More contact with the surrounding beads would not only make for stronger creations, they would allow for more creative designs. I would also like to see design templates on their web page!!! I'm scouring the web today for Hama and other bead patterns I can use for our set!!
