Colour Splasherz Carry Case product review

Over Easter we were lucky enough to receive a new product for both girls to try out - the Colour Splasherz Carry Case.

I'm not quite sure you can tell instantly from the name what it is, but the packaging certainly made it look exciting and both girls were keen to have a go. 

The case consists of several beads and 2 main pendant 'stones' which fit neatly into a holder/setting. This setting can then be threaded onto cord (which has a safety catch) to make a necklace. The beads can either be added to this or put onto separate cord to make a bracelet.

The exciting part of the product is the fact that you can make different designs on the beads and pendant stones by dipping them in water. The case itself opens up into two halves and has a fancy tray insert which can be used for placing the beads on. You then fill one side with very warm but not boiling)water and the other with freezing cold (note the ice cubes, they definitely helped), and lower the beads in. Or else just use your fingers to dip, which is mostly what my girls ended up doing!

The girls had great fun with this and spent a good long time dipping and changing the colours for different effects. They were then happy to show off their finished products:

This retails for around £12.99 and I'd say this is a great gift for the 5-8 age range. One thing to be aware of though, is that the patterns will disappear overnight and the beads return to their original colour... fortunately our youngest hasn't realised that yet! And as our older girl said, it means you can start having the fun all over again!

We were sent the above toy for the purpose of this review, but have not received payment. All the views expressed here are our own.
