How shall I start this post? I’m not actually entirely sure. I must be having a moment.

Okay, let me have this moment.

Moment.

Done.

Alright, moving along then.

Take a look at this little creation.

Thoughts?

Creativity for Kids Tiny Terrarium Necklaces by the folks at Faber-Castell comes with little tiny pieces for children to make their own necklaces. The kits are simple to use and easy to complete. My big kid completed this little deer necklace quickly and independently. She read the instructions which were a little cumbersome and could probably be updated. The images were decent though.

To make your own terrarium necklace, all you really have to do is stick a chunk of the green putty-like material on the bottom surface (think thin bottle cap with bendable prongs). Simply pick what you want and jab it into the green stuff and cover it all with the clear dome. Bend up the prongs and you’re done.

Voila.

Can you hear the ‘but’ coming?

Well, truth be told, the giant box seemed to hold a lot of promise but the contents were a little underwhelming. This is what you get in the box:

There was just enough materials to make 3 necklaces, no more, no less. What you’re given is decent quality and the mini figures are incredibly cute. Although you have some freedom to design the necklaces any way you want to, the lack of materials really does limit your options. My big kid enjoyed making the first necklace but lost interest shortly thereafter and hasn’t gone back to this kit at all.

The kit is identified for children ages 8 years and up and for safety purposes with all the mini pieces I would definitely stick to that age bracket. I’m sure many children would love this kit. It is a novel idea, making your own terrarium necklace with these adorable mini figures. It sounds so intriguing to build your own little world and to wear it as a necklace. Do I think children would like this necklace kit? Sure. I just wish there were more materials to spark those creative designs.
