My niece and I had a great time reviewing the My Friendship Bracelet Maker available at MyFBM.com. It brought back a lot of great memories of making friendship bracelets with my friends; If only I had something like this it would probably have been a lot easier! The My Friendship Bracelet Maker is an innovative toy that makes the confusing and time consuming art of friendship bracelet making fun and easy; The way it should be!
It’s as simple as this: Take 2-5 threads, fold them in half, tie a knot in the top to make a loop. Take that loop and use the cute, but functional, butterfly clip to hold the threads in place.
The butterfly also slides up and down so you can create a bracelet in the size you need!
The knobs along the bottom make it easy to keep all your colors in order. There are 10 knobs to accommodate up to 10 threads (5 colors). You can customize your bracelet by creating patterns with different colored thread. Place each piece of thread into your desired slot. This is when your pattern is created.
There are instructions but I have to admit I had a hard time figuring them out…That may be due to the fact that I haven’t made a friendship bracelet in about 15 years! But once we figured it out we discovered it was SUPER easy! Basically you use thread #1 and make double knots with all the other threads…then keep going down the line! There is no wrong way!
The My Friendship Bracelet Maker comes with 56 pre cut 60-inch threads in it’s own self contained storage compartment. This makes it a perfect companion for long car rides, sleepovers and rainy days!
The bottom has little rubber feet to keep it in its place!
Overall I think this is a really great product! It’s fun and creative! It’s perfect for kids just starting out or kids at heart getting back into it!
The suggested ages are 6+ but I think maybe 8+ would be more appropriate.
