Daisy Chains: Cool Create

Jordanna was recently sent the Daisy Chain maker which is part of the Cool Create toys from Flair Toys
Girls are able to create daisy bracelets and it does not require batteries. The set consists of a plastic base, flower petals, stems and clips.

Each daisy can be made up of 3 petals and then you put a green stem through and add beads.

Once the daisies are all made you join them together to make bracelets or chains.

Unfortunately we found the set a little difficult to use. The base itself is quite flimsy and often moves whilst trying to put the daisies together. You are provided with a slider to lift the made daisies off the stems but we found this a little useless and was easier to just use our fingers instead. Thirdly joining the daisies on the base was also a little difficult and it was easier to just manually connect them ourselves. However apart from a few hitches with this set Jordanna did manage to make a pretty bracelet in the end.

There are probably enough parts to make about 5 bracelets in total.
The set is aimed at girls 4+ but I think most younger girls would struggle and need lots of help with this. Daisy chains set is priced at Β£9.99 and if you have a lot of patience you will probably enjoy making these with your little girl.
There are many other sets in the Cool Create range. There is also a Cool Create Club online which children can go on for cool activities.
