My daughter was sent a Blingles Bling Studio for her to create from bling for her favourite things. It was a very neat little kit with everything going together in a special container:
The instructions were very clear as to how to set up everything to create your bling. A template is selected and put under the special rubber screen then a clever little tool is used to apply the right coloured sparkles on the template:
This required plenty of concentration but my daughter was totally absorbed:
Once the design is finished a cover is put on before it is applied to the glue paper. Once it is sticky the bling is applied to the item of choice. In this case her iPod:
At this point we were joined by our neighbour who is aged 30. She had a lovely time creating more bling with my daughter and would have been quite happy having a kit of her own!
The studio is available from retailers such as Argos for around £19.99. It would make a great birthday or Christmas present for the tween in your life. It is aimed at 6+ and my 8 year old certainly loves it.
