I first saw the Pom pom wow set at this years blog on conference at the end of last month. It involves decorating cute little Pom poms which can then be stuck to many surfaces. I knew my 8 year old daughter would love this and o wasn’t wrong either. Needless to say I was quite happy when we got sent the set.
” Pom Pom WOW! Is the new way to beautify your world by placing pom-poms on anything and everything! Create scenes, imagery, unique and complex shapes, messages and even custom pom-poms.”
The large box it comes in is actually quite deceptive as the unit itself is fairly small in comparison.
This comes almost assembled as per photograph above. What we needed to do was attach the tape roll which consists of glue dots, attach the ink stamper, mixer tray and the Pom Pom trays. Then you can begin.
There are 75 Pom poms per kit. They come in small sealed tubes. To start they get placed in the pink Pom Pom trays. The tray is then attached to the colour station purple clamp and dipped in either ink or paint, add a glue dot, stick and open up the Pom poms, fairly easy.
We did come across slight problems,getting the Pom Pom pink tray into the clamp is tricky. It sits above the paint and ink pads meaning there isn’t much room to put it in, tho smaller fingers will find it easier.
Once made the Pom poms will look a little like this.
Once the Pom poms are made extra colour can be added with included markers and a glue stick.
The Pom poms can even be stuck together to give a bigger and more original Pom Pom.
If you get bored of the included paints then the pipette and empty water trays enable the user to make their own colours. This new colour is then added in the smaller unit and colour squirted onto a single Pom Pom with the pipette.
It’s lots of fun for young girls to get creative, Jordanna loves it and enjoys making them for her friends and sister.
