Review & Giveaway: SmartLab Toys- Snap Jewelry

I love doing arts and crafts with my kids but I'm really not that creative of a mom. That's why I'm happy there are companies out there like SmartLab toys that make it so much easier!

SmartLab Toys manufactures books plus products for children ages 4 - 12. They believe that kids learn best through hands-on exploration, so they offer that experience wrapped up in a fun toy and a cool book. (Also making it easier for parents to keep up with directions and toys...hehehe). Their goal is to entertain and educate and let me tell you, they have a great variety of educational toys!


Check out a few of my favorites:
Bath Fizzy Lab $7.99

Blast Off Rocket- $7.99

All Natural Spa Day- $29.99



My Take: I was excited to get the awesome Snap Fashion  kit to use with my kids. Now I must say I am a DIY person myself but I must have directions. Without directions I am lost. That's why I was so excited to see the bright and colorful book that was attached to the kit box that was full of easy to understand directions. 



So I sat the kids down and we decided to make some jewelry. First I want to point out the cute little snap maker. I love how it has a place to store your materials:

It's also really simple to use. you just put in your fabric circle, a snap dome then you press down. When you pull the lever back up you tuck in the remaining material, place a back on the handle of the tool (yes on the handle! this is very important, I kept putting it on the fabric and dome in the base and it won't work if you do it that way) and press down until you hear a click! Here's a pic of my kids doing it:

Then you just use the accessory attachments that come with the kit and make your own rings, necklaces, or bracelets.  You can see my daughter is wearing my first creation. Now you must remember that I'm no pro when it comes to crafts but this was fun and I think the more you use it the better you will get. =)


Buy it: The Snap Fashion Jewelry Kit can be purchased online for $24.99 at www.smartlabtoys.com, Amazon.com and select retailers. The kit comes with: A book bedazzled with ideas, Custom customizable snap maker, 25 domes and backs snaps to cover with fabric, 5 necklace and bracelet snaps, 2 snap rings, Necklace with hook and clasp, Charm attachment, 16 - 1.5" precut fabric circles (8 styles, 2 each), 12" ribbon, 12 birthstone gems, and 5ml bottle of glue. Currently there isn't a refill kit for this particular item. However if you contact customer service they can fulfill orders for whatever extras you might need.
