Orb Factory Binglets: Review & Giveaway

Have you heard of The Orb Factory?  The Orb Factory is a provider of many craft and activity products.  They have been around for 21 years!  Their products are sold in over 50 countries and they have become a recognized and trusted name in the toy market. 

Check out the Binglet box I received.
There are 48 Binglets (fancy bracelets)!  4 different Binglets for 12 girls

 Each kind of Binglet
Some are thinner and some are thicker

 Peeling off the jewels

My Thoughts:  The girls had so much fun making these bracelets with their friends.  It is an easy and fun activity.  You simply unpeel the jewel stickers and place them on the bracelets in the pattern you desire.  Sometimes the sticky part remains on the plastic and the jewel will not stick to the bracelet so you need to make sure that the adhesive comes off with the jewel.  I love that the sticker sheets contain plenty of jewels for the bracelets with extras!!  This allows for multiple patterns, and helps if some of them come off incorrectly!  Also, you want to apply some pressure when you put the jewels on the bracelets as well.  One of our bracelets was dropped right after assembly and many of the jewels popped off so I do not think enough pressure was used.  No worries though, we simply put it back together - pressed hard, and it stayed put. 

All in all this was a really fun activity and the girls and I would recommend it.  It would be a fun craft to have at a birthday party, craft party, or just to do with friends like we did!  They can encompass a large age range as well.  C and his buddy had fun making a few Binglets together for their mommies, so don't rule boys out completely.

I thought that this was such a super sweet idea - boys can make them for their mommies or sisters if applicable.  We still have a few more Binglets to share with more of our friends!  We just weren't able to get together will all of them at the same time.  Would you like to try out Binglets for yourself?  Then, keep reading...
