Friendship bracelets are a timeless token of friendship. They can often be found on the wrists of young girls desperate to have matching accessories. The KumiKreator Friendship Bracelet Maker makes creating beautiful friendship bracelets simple. It’s safe to say Mia was incredibly excited to put this nifty little contraption to the test. She has wanted to create a bracelet for all of her best friends, or bff’s as she likes to call them, for a while now.
The initial set up of the KumiKreator Friendship Bracelet Maker requires adult supervision. Once set up and ready to go, it’s easy to create pretty woven wristbands in minutes. The KumiKreator Friendship bracelet maker is suitable for children aged 8+. Mia is seven years old but was still able to use the machine with very little intervention from me. With each clockwise turn of the wheel, a braid is formed.
Every element of creating a friendship bracelet is child-friendly. There are no sharp edges or needles involved and little hands are kept well away from the spinning spools, however a little help may be required when attaching the end clasps.
Within the box there is a booklet full of different designs which details where to place each spool to achieve the desired pattern. Of course, you can throw caution to the wind and go for a random pattern if you wish. We are particularly fond of the BFF and sweetheart designs.
Each friendship bracelet maker kit contains enough thread and accessories to create 10 friendship bracelets – enough for the whole gang!
I hate to mention the c word in July, but this kit is the perfect Christmas gift for young ladies. This kit is proof that less is more, it’s a simple device that does the job perfectly. Mia loves everything about the KumiKreator Friendship Bracelet Maker, especially the bright and bold threads included. It’s a tween must-have!
