I bought this kit for a friend's nine-year old, since she likes making the regular knotted bracelets so much. She couldn't wait to tear into it! The measurements at the side of the directions page are handy- the only thing you need that's not in the kit is a scissor. The only problem we really had was starting the pattern, physically. It's very clear-cut and the color-coding is very easy to follow, but holding the wheel, the knot, and still having a free hand to separate the strands nicely while keeping the knot in the center of the wheel is a bit of a trick- I ended up holding the wheel and the knot for her the first time so she could move the strands. After that, it is a breeze- just a few simple steps, repeated. Overall, I'm giving it four stars since I can't vouch for how well it holds up, I don't know how "educational" it would be past developing coordination skills, and the fumbling it took to start, which I'm sure gets easier with time. Otherwise, it's great- she gets to create friendship bracelets that are very different from the ones her friends make!

Our 11 year old loves this. At first, it was a little hard for her to understand but next thing you know, she was on u-tube watching video on how to work it and just makes more and more and more. She now wants different wheels for her birthday. excellent product!

I really like this friendship bracelet wheel. The amazon website says for ages 6 and up and the manufacturer says 8 years and up. I definitely think the 8 years and up is more accurate. Getting the wheel strung and ready to go is the hard part. A six year old could probably do the rest once they understand the pattern, which is quite simple. I found the process therapeutic.

I got this for my daughter for her 8th bday. She had a little trouble at first remembering where to begin and end each move of the string, but by the end of the first bracelet she had it down perfect.
The bracelets are formed by moving a string from one side to the other side and they are held by the slots in the foam ring. The design forms by starting with the colors placed in certain "petals" when you begin. If you mess up the order as you work your design will not come out correctly (as with my daughter's first bracelet) but it still looks very cool. Good keep busy craft!

I made a few of the bracelets before realizing that the bracelets risked my losing a hard won reputation as being a respected, mature, and wise professional. Weekend use, yes. Business meetings with clients, no.

This kit is very cute! Making bracelets is fun and easy and a great project for kids on a trip, on a rainy day or passing the time while waiting. It's amazing how nicely they come out and how creative you can be with the colors!

instructions are very clear, there is a good amount of material to make braceletes. I really perfer alex toys over some of them. The wheel was made with qualtiy to ensure it does not break easy. The colors are great. My daughter really enjoys this. I would recommend this for children over 8 it may be difficult for a younger child to do. But you know your child.
