My 8 year old daughter loved the Gel-a-Peel Sparkle Bead Craft Kit Station! Opening the box was definitely the hardest part of using this kit but it is certainly no worse than other toy packaging. Once we had all of the pieces out we read through the instructions, set everything up and my daughter was up and running. It only took a few minutes to figure out what we were doing. The kit came with the bead station, one pencil rod (for making pencil decorations), 5 bead rods, one ring tool (which came stored on the station and is a small white bead shape that can be seen on the right side of the station in the main photo), 3 gel tubes (pink, purple and turquoise), 2 colors of plastic cording for making necklaces and other jewelry, 3 round tips and 1 rake tip attachment, 1 cleaning tool, 2 jump rings, 2 earring hooks and the instructions. I helped her do the first few but only because I wanted to see how it worked too! She easily handled the station and while I worried that squeezing the tube with 1 hand while rotating the rods with the other hand would be difficult, she had very little trouble. The gel is thick but not overly difficult to use and cleaned up easily with a paper towel and water. We kept paper towels nearby to help wipe off mistakes or clean off the tips of the tubes. The tips are easy to put on but each tube has a plug that must be removed and it was a little difficult the first time we took them out. We discovered you do have to wait a little while before layering colors and that might be a little off putting to kiddos who prefer to start and finish all at once. We allowed our beads and decorations to dry over night before we removed them from their rods. Once dry, the beads just slide off of the rods and my daughter had no problem doing this without my help. We allowed the gel to dry in the tips and it was easy to use the cleaning tool to just pop the gel out. I loved that the kit came with an inspiration sheet that gave you sample ideas!

My daughters - ages 8 and 4 - were excited to use this bead craft station. We opened the box up, and instantly the pieces were everywhere. There's the bead maker with the various rods, and also the three tubes of gel, the tips to squeeze the gel out, the cords and bits to make jewelry (I almost threw out the little baggie with the earring hooks because I didn't realize there was something in it) and a little plastic cutting tool. My first thought was - I really wish this came with some type of storage box to keep everything from getting lost. The bead making took a bit of trial and error. I didn't feel like the instructions that came along with the kit made it seem all that easy to make the beads. The girls made a few and then, being somewhat impatient, kept checking to see if they were dry and getting gel all over. When they finally got the hang of it, and learned to just leave the beads alone to dry, they enjoyed it a bit more. We have not gotten around to actually making jewelry with what has been made so far, but they are looking forward to doing this and making gifts for their friends as well as things for themselves. All in all, I think it is a fun but somewhat messy craft for kids.

    This product was so much fun to do with my 10 year old daughter. It was very easy for her to read the instructions and make jewelry. She loves this kit! She's taking it to a sleepover tonight to share with the other girls in her class! We love this gel a peel kit and would highly recommend it to anyone that likes to be a little creative.

    Cute crafting kit. Kids made beads and my older daughter made the pencil grip. I would recommend this for a gift for a crafting girl. It was easy to use. I did give 4 stars because my kiddos were in charge of the clean up and when they pulled the kit out a few hours later to make more beads because my son wanted in on the fun, some of the gel had already dried beyond use. Make sure you double check them to make them last.

    Comments about MGA Entertainment 1001165 Gel-A-Peel Sparkle Bead Station:

    My little girl was very excited to try the Gel-A-Peel-Sparkle Bead Station. She is 9 and loves doing crafts but this was a bit complex for her. She had a hard time getting the correct amount of gel needed and it seemed to take much longer for the beads to dry than what was instructed. A lot of the beads ended up cracking/breaking when we went to remove them which was very upsetting after putting so much time into making them. Overall the kit is a neat concept with wonderfully bright colors but the gel needs to hold up better and drying times really need adjusted. This kit would be best used by older children(tweens) or with constant parental supervision.

      Comments about MGA Entertainment 1001165 Gel-A-Peel Sparkle Bead Station:

      I was really excited to give this to my girls. It is unlike any other craft or toy that they have had. What I really like about this is that its different and it is fun. It does take a tiny bit of practice to get your beads round and smooth, though. The same with the ring and pencil cozy. But what is great about this is that your creations do not have to be perfect. Each one will turn out unique. :)
      Overall, it isn't super easy when just starting, but as you continue to make your creations {especially for the younger kids}, then it gets easier. The colors of the gels are really nice, too!
      We have been enjoying making lots of beads, rings, and especially pencil cozies. It's pretty fun!

        Viewpoints sent this kit to us for honest review and my 10 year old was super into it. When it arrived, we opened it immediately (I have to say the packaging was very difficult to open and cut out all of the plastic ties and strings). The set itself was very easy to assemble and the instructions were clear. My daughter seemed to really enjoy it. It kept her happily busy for a good hour and I even sat down and made a few beads myself. It does take a bit of practice to get the finished product to look good, but the process is fun. You also get enough gel that you are able to practice and still have enough to make better ones once you get the hang of it. I did have a bit of trouble getting the bigger "beads" off of the rod without breaking them, but most of them came right off. This was a fun activity that my child and I were able to enjoy together and I would recommend for any older child interested in crafting.

          I used this product to make beads so that I could let my patients make brackets or necklaces. They really enjoyed this because it helped them to use their hands and also they got something to show for what they did. They loved and I love it. I have no negative reaction to this product.
