Fun and easy!

This was a fun, easy way to tie dye! The dyed string is way neater than traditional methods. They give you so much string! My 10 year old daughter and her friend were able to dye the included bag and headband. They are working on shirts next. And they did it all on their own without staining clothes or my carpet! There are so many possibilities for designs too! I recommend watching YouTube videos for ideas and how-tos before you start. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Great gift for a crafty kid

My 8 year old daughter was so excited to try this tie dye kit. We've done traditional tie dye but it was messy and required a lot of supervision. I decided to test this one out by letting her do it herself. She read all the instructions and got the kit set up without any help. She did the tote bag. She needed help from me when she was applying the string to the bag. She had trouble turning the Color Pod Track knob while moving the pod up and down the track. This was a coordination issue not an issue with the actual product, but figured it was worth mentioning since the product is for ages 8+. I helped her make sure the string was tight against the fabric and we actually added more water to the string after it was on because I was concerned the fabric wasn't wet enough. We waited a day for the results and it turned out great. The colors were vivid and the design was really cool. She can't wait to do more projects with the leftover string. I would definitely recommend this as a gift because you don't have to feel guilty about giving a messy craft that requires a lot of parental supervision like so many other crafts.

Cool Tie Dye Fun

Cool Maker Tidy Dye Station would make a great gift for anyone who loves to do arts and crafts. The directions were simple and I love the fact that you can use this more than once because there are refills that you can purchase so it's not a One-Shot deal. The only drawback that I saw was that it is imperative to make sure that you follow the directions correctly because in order for the tie dyed to get fully finished you need to let it sit overnight. So if there is a child who wants it done right away, they're going to have to be a little patient. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Makes Tye Dying Fun!

I really enjoyed using the Cool Maker-Tidy Dye Station with my daughters. They have asked on other occasions so try and make tye dyed shirts or other things and honestly I knew that it was going to be a huge mess that I didn't want to deal with. Using the Tidy Dye Station made this activity fun and less stressful than traditional tye dying. It was super easy to use and the headband and tote bag (which was included with the set) came out adorable! My daughters asked to make shirts sometime soon and I'm actually looking forward to making them. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Makes Tie Dye cooler than ever before!

Tie dye is still in? Oh YES it is! This cool maker is so easy to use, clean up is a breeze and it doesn't take much time either. We have tried making tie dye shirts and items in the past. However, the mess and huge list of supplies, not to mention the process of it isn't worth it. It is about time that a solution was found! The kit comes with everything you need to make all kinds of projects. It includes a cute bag and headband to start. My daughter was able to do it herself with little supervision which is a win for parents! The dye string looks much like dental floss and works the same way. One tip make sure that you wrap the colored string tightly around the item. One half of our headband was too loosed. The positive is that item still turned out looking great. The four color options are great ones and we were able to reuse the same string dyeing the bag. So you can get more than one project done with the same string. Refills for the string are about $10 for all four, not a bad price when you can reuse on more than one project. The one thing that would make things easier is having a second roller. You leave your project overnight to set and dry. So unless you are creative you can't do a second project until the first one is dry. Other than that this is a great gift and is perfect for a birthday party activity. I would suggest grabbing plan white t-shirts or tank tops at your local craft store. Only negative is the size of the headband we could tie it in a small knot, but when it came to wearing it runs small. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

A Unique and Mess-Free Way to Tie Dye

I remember creating tie dye shirts as a kid at summer camp. It was fun, but boy was it messy! Years later I am now an adult (and a mom) who tries to mitigate mess when I can. I was excited to try out the Cool Maker – Tidy Dye Station to see if it was really as "tidy" as it claimed. Right off the bat I was encouraged by the simple instructions. Included in the box was everything I needed to create a tie dye mini tote and headband. It also appears to have more than enough colored string for at least a few more shirts! The process seemed simple enough although I did struggle a bit getting the string to wrap tight enough around the roller. Essentially you are using the dye from the string to color the shirt. I think with a bit of practice on the roller, I would become an expert in no time. The end result didn't look exactly like the tote on the box, and in hindsight I probably should have wrapped more string to get a more dramatic effect. But it did work! It was as mess-free as it claimed to be, which was great. Overall I would recommend this as a unique and fun way to tie dye. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Great for older kids!

My 12-year old daughter doesn't get excited over much, but the day the Tidy Dye Station arrived she wanted to take everything out and get started right away (which we didn't do, since it was a week night). Day 1: This is a great, mess free project to do on a rainy Sunday afternoon - my husband was skeptical when I told him we were going to do this in the kitchen - he wanted us to go out to the garage because he feared the mess it would make. The directions for set up are really clear ....my daughter could have done this all by herself. She chose 3 colors for the headband project. It was easy enough to put the headband on the barrel, but when it came time to wrap the string around the barrel, that's where we had to make this into a team effort. We found that it's hard to keep the string taut while rolling the barrel. Because of this we decided to wing it instead of following the pattern. She guided the string and I rolled the barrel. After this we put the barrel in a bag, as suggested, took the machine apart and put it back in the box. Day 1 was simple and there was no mess to clean up. Day 2: Since we did day one on a Sunday afternoon, the color did sit for more than 24-hours before being rinsed, since I had to wait for her to get out of school. That whole day all she wanted to do was to get home to see what the headband looked like. Rinsing the headband on the barrel is the easy part, having one person unwrap the string from the headband without making a small mess is another. A second person having a pair of gloves would be ideal to reduce the dye from splattering. We laid the headband on the plastic and left it out overnight to dry. We wiped off any of the excess dye that splattered around the sink with a paper towel. Day 2 was a success, while a bit messy, it was still easier and cleaner than traditional tie dye. Day 3: She woke up bright and early and the first thing she did was check on her headband, which she thinks turned out AWESOME! Thoughts: Since my daughter is 12, this would be a great project to do with a friend because there is enough dye in the pods to do multiple projects. I would be comfortable letting them do this without adult supervision since you can't really make a big mess because the color is contained in the strings. Unlike traditional tie dye, there is more white space on the final project. In my opinion, the colors spread, but that could be because we left the dye on the project longer than overnight. But what matters most is my daughter's opinion. As I said earlier, she doesn't get excited about much (she doesn't look excited in the picture because she doesn't like to have her picture taken), but with the Tidy Dye station she had a great time from start to finish!

MAKE IT MONDAY - TIDY DYE STATION

Traditionally, tie dying is messy messy messy! However, this craft was not! This was a fun, clean activity for the girls this weekend! Here are the pros in our opinion, easy directions, no mess and a quick craft Here are the cons: the purple string would not come out of the cartridge so it's not usable as is. The girls wish it came with more projects, but you can use what is left of the strings to make your own Tidy Die creations. Great for ages 8 and up and if you buy it, I would suggest reusing the great box it came it for storage. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Didn't exactly look like picture on box

The Tye dye station comes with a tote, headband, plastic gloves, plastic sheet and the tye dye machine. We decided to buy a white t-shirt for our first project. It's easy to set up but we did find that the shirt was a little bulky to put on the machine. Easy to place the ribbons around the machine. We used a scissor cause it was too hard for my daughter to cut the ribbon with the attached cutter. The completed shirt looked nothing like the cover of the box. Since it was the first time following the instructions, I think I will try different ways like adding water to the fabric after the project is ready to put in a bag till the next day to get more of a bleed to the colors. Nice project but the end result doesn't match the photos on the box. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Fun to use

I'm a little torn on the Cool Maker – Tidy Dye Station. My first impression was unimpressedcomes from the packaging. It sets this product up to be a girl's toy... And I found my boys love to do this kind of thing. Set up was quick and easy. The kids were able to create shirts all on their own. Unlike most tie-dye, it was a quick process. But that is also a downside to me. Part of the fun of creating this type of artwork is the wrapping the bands and mixing of the dye. The strings make applying the dye fun and fast, but then it is done. The results are great, but the process is a little too quick. Wet, wrap and set... As a parent, having something to occupy the kids. All that said, it is something my kids rather enjoyed. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
