CharMinis Deluxe Jewelry Studio

Enter disclaimer text Arianna was extremely excited to give CharMinis Deluxe Jewelry Studio a try while the kids had some snow days this week. She is our creative kid, so giving her the opportunity to make her own jewelry was pretty cool.

CharMinis Deluxe Jewelry Studio

If your child loves creating their own jewelry pieces, the CharMinis Deluxe Jewelry Studio is a great set for them. The one we got to test out was “Sweet Treats” but there are other themes (like “Fashion Icons”). Each kit has over 100 pieces for making colorful sparkling charms.

The set is recommended for 6+. Arianna worked on her set far from the twins because these pieces are definitely tiny. Dad supervised, but the charms were easy enough for her to put together with some patience. (When you put the charms together, there is water-activated fusing materials on the charms that requires one-minute+ holding the charm together, then it must dry for about 20 minutes.)

Once the charms are created, they can be added to bracelets or necklaces (in the kit) or displayed on the drying stand.

Arianna did a quick video to show what you do with this set. She has made a few charms so far, but is very cautious to keep this away from her little sisters.

Doesn’t it seem like a fun toy? Definitely brings out the creative side.

The CharMinis are available on Amazon with an MSRP of $24.99. Add-on packs are also available.

What is your child creating? What do you think of the CharMinis?

Amidst the rocking boat of Blogger Bash NYC, I found a toy that I knew would soon become a favorite in my house. Just like my four kids, these are adorable ‘lil beings that have their own emotions and wants.

Magic MeeMees

I’m pretty sure that these toys from Future of Play are going to top wish lists this holiday season. While not available until August 1, the ‘lil Burghers (and I, duh!) got a chance to play with these fun characters who will be available in play sets, characters, and blind bags. Each character has a mind of their own. A push on the head brings them to life so they can interact with you, other MagicMeeMees, their play lands, and food.


Check out what Evan and Arianna had to say about them, then come back here for more information.

You can follow MagicMeeMees on their social channels to find out more as they become available at retailers: Facebook | Twitter | Instagram. These toys were a HIT at Blogger Bash’s Sweet Suite and I’m sure they’ll be a hit in your home, too!

Psst! If you don’t want your magicmeemees to be red (angry) all the time, make sure you either buy the matching play set or the foods that go along with their land. There are currently 24 characters and 8 play sets (lands). Also, if you have babies like we do, you can take the arms off and store them somewhere safe so that they can check out these fun characters (with supervision, of course).
