What It Is

The Groovy Pin Board from Alex is a piece of customizable cork board that girls can decorate and pin with all the things they love. The kit comes with 25 frames and shapes, 20 sheets of memo paper, 11 stickers, 20 sticky gems, ribbons, tacks, and more. Collect ticket stubs, photos, and/or notes and display them on the board. Add some pizzazz to the basic included thumb tacks by using the included stickers and bubble caps to create "groovy" tacks. Place your own photos in the included cardboard frames and pin them to the board. All the items in this craft kit feature a colorful, psychedelic theme.

Then with some parental assistance, kids can hang the framed corkboard on their bedroom wall using the frame's back hangers.

Is It Fun?

This pin board does a good job of tapping into the popular trends of customization and personalization. We like that it supplies kids with a lot of elements to get started designing but also allows them to bring in their own collectible photos and memories to make the board customized for them.

Who It’s For

The Groovy Pin Board is for ages 8 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

The corkboard isn't quite thick enough to push the tacks fully in and we also wish a few more tacks were included.

Nails for hanging the frame are not included.
