Review

Budding fashionistas will love creating their very own awesome accessories with the Shrinky Dinks Cool Foil Jewelry kit. Kids design wearable art by transferring cute metallic icons onto pre-cut shapes using a sponge and water, then put them in the oven and watch as they magically seal and shrink down to a third of their original size. Once cooled, kids can decide how they want to wear their masterpiece: as a pendant on a necklace, hooked onto earrings, or as a charm on a bracelet or keychain. The kit offers clear instructions and is simple enough for little ones ages five and up to do on their own, but adult assistance is required when it comes to using the oven. It’s a great activity for a playdate, and the kit allows you to create up to 20 charms, including unicorns, pineapples and flamingos.

This toy was unique—we’ve never done a craft like this before. I'm sure my six-year-old daughter would enjoy doing it again. Plus, it resulted in a product that my daughter was very happy with.” —Grace, mom of one
