Cute craft set
Easily Storable/Totable Set
The Horizon Group Made by Me Create Your Own Bead Pets Kit is such a cute little set. It is not just fun for little kids. My sixteen year old couldn’t wait to dive in and try his hand at a project! The kit comes with plenty of beads, several roles of cord, and keychain loops and hooks. The best part of this kit is, hands down, the carrying case. This big boxed set becomes a very small, easily storable and/or totable fun activity for kids. It has a larger compartment for beads and four smaller compartments for cords and fasteners. The lid easily fits on and stays on. The lid is the most useful tool in the entire kit. It doubles as a helpful and fun to use building guide for your project! The included patterns are easy to follow and adorable. One recommendation when putting together a project is to pull the cord as tight as possible, as it loosens up a little later. If your child is looking to make gifts for family and friends, these projects would make great little gifts! This whole kit would also be a great birthday or Christmas gift for a child.

Great gift idea!
This build your own pet key chain kit is great! Sometimes is hard to find gifts for the 10-14 age but this kit is a great gift for that age group. It has kept both my daughter occupied for hours. It’s fun and the direction cards are easy to follow. Put this on you Christmas list!
Love these! Used to make when I was kid
I was so excited for this Horizon Group Made by Me Bead Pets & Keychain Kit. Talk about a throwback to my school days. I used to make these all the time when I was a kid and would carry them around and have them on my backpack. I still have a few. My kids wanted to make some and this is a perfect starter kit. It comes with string, clasps, key rings, lots of beads in different colors like orange, yellow, green and black and more. Plus it comes with a little plastic case to carry the stuff in. We had so much fun going through it. The best part is it has little diagrams to show you how to string the beads and make the different animals which is very helpful as I couldn't remember how to make them since it has been so long. My girls 4 and 8 years, had a blast but I had to help them a bit. Now they just want to make more and we still have some left to make. It makes up to 10 sets. Which is pretty nice. Definitely a lot of fun.
I did get to try this for free through the Spark review program but the opinions here are my own experiences.
So much fun
I really like this Bead Pets, it comes with everything you need for your creations, has different colors that are very vibrant colors, it comes with a guide to help you make the different creations. It comes with a box to store the beads which is great for organization.
I recieved this product for my honest rating and review.
I recieved 1 Horizon Group made by me bead pets and keychai kit. This set Includes 437 po y bead, 10 paper templates, 6 keyrings, 4 lanyard clips, 20 yards of wax cord and 1 storage case.
This kit is fun for all ages. I along with 2 children had a great time making keychains and I definitely reccomend you buy this kit and rate it 4 out of 5.
Perfect for cold rainy days!
This kit kept my son and his friend busy and quiet for hours when the couldn’t go outside and play because it was too cold and wet. They were bored watching tv so I gave them this to entertain them and they had so much fun. Each animal had instructions with numbers to indicate which color bead to use. Some were difficult for them to follow but once they got one done it was much easier to do though.
Not for beginners!
I had high hopes for these since my almost 8 year old son is obsessed with keychains. He was so excited about these. The age recommendations started at 6 so this was a double score EXCEPT even at 8 he could definitely NOT make these by himself. Let’s start with the kit & container that holds the beads; it did not have enough compartments for each major color. Next the lid is the part where you set the beads while you’re building your design. It does not keep the beads up right & this frustrated my son. Next you have to weave the string one way & then the other until you get to the bottom & then tie it off except once you get to the bottom & try pulling it a bit tight to make it look nice the bottom beads start flipping & not staying where they are suppose to be. We ended up taking off a bead to make it look okay. In the end our keychain didn’t look much like the picture. It looks okay but when you lift it it’s really saggy. I probably wouldn’t recommend these to anyone unless they’re an avid bearer who could make it better if that’s even possible.
“Busy Activity” for Kids, Could Look Better
My kids love trying new activities and this one was no different. The day this arrived, they were already asking to make key chains for their book bags to show off at school. My daughter made a unicorn, while my son chose to make a fox. A few of the designs can be a little tricky, mostly with how to thread the string through, so just know they may come to you asking for your help. They had their key chains made in a matter of about 20-30 minutes and I think they turned out okay. They look amazing when they are laid down on a tabletop, but whenever they are hung up or dangling off their book bags, they do not look the greatest. I honestly feel like they would benefit better with some different string perhaps. I love how this kit includes everything you need to make 10 different key chains (437 beads, 10 templates, 6 keyrings, 4 lanyard clips, 10 yards of wax cord, storage case with built-in guide and instructions on how to make these adorable key chains). Overall, I think this is a neat idea, but don't hold out hope of these turning out looking the best. I honestly believe if there was a different type string/cord, these would turn out better.
