*These companies were gracious enough to send us this product for free for our review. As always, all opinions are our own, and we really do think this will be a great gift to give your loved ones.
I had never heard of Orbeez before we were contacted to review them, but our 4-year old girl knew exactly what they were as soon as she peeked in the box and saw the letter "ORB". The box wasn't even open enough to reveal what these were, let alone the whole name,and yet she exclaimed with such excitement, "ORBEEZ!!"
Needless to say, these things are popular with the kids. Orbeez are these tiny "seeds" that when put into water, they grow into these squishy like beads. (Us adults have seen this type of idea for decorations in centerpieces, and such.)
But Orbeez has created a whole lot of fun with these little squishy beads. We received the Orbeez Sweet Treats Studio. In this specific kit, you grow your Orbeez, then you crush them, and use them to decorate pretend cakes, cupcakes and cookies. You get to choose the color you want, and can crush over 100 Orbeez at once, to get them ready to decorate your pretend treats! They're fun, squishy, and colorful.
You can check out all of the different products available from Orbeez HERE.
It's lots of fun to be had by all.
