What It Is
Dylan's Candy Bar is the ultimate candy store with several locations in the U.S. including New York, Orlando and Houston, but it's also well known through various TV appearances and promotions. Alex and Dylan's Candy Bar teamed up last year for a line of candy-inspired craft activities and accessories, and the line expands this year with Bling a Candy Jewelry Box. This kit lets kids make candy-inspired boxes in which to store their jewelry. To decorate, you do what Alex calls "bling by color." Just match the color and shape of the stickers to the colored shapes on the boxes. The kit comes with three boxes with lids, 504 sticky mosaic tiles, 226 sticky gems, 20 stickers, and instructions.
Is It Fun?
This is an easy-to-do activity that results in sparkly and functional jewelry boxes, although kids can store more than jewelry inside the boxes. Kids will like being able to create and decorate their very own jewelry box.
Who It’s For
The Bling a Candy Jewelry Box is for ages 6 and up.
Naturally, it will appeal most to kids who enjoy arts and crafts and activity projects.
What To Be Aware Of
Be careful handling the boxes after you decorate them. The sticky tiles and gems easily come off.
