Dorota’s written a guest review for Mommy Gearest before – she tested out the O.O.T.W. VIZI doll and didn’t have the best experience. When GlamsterBands contacted me to do a review, I immediately thought of Dorota’s eldest daughter.
My four-year-old daughter loves pretend play and dressing up. She especially loves wearing my things, including my jewelry. I’m alright with her staining an old dress, but losing or breaking jewelry is unacceptable – which is why both my four year old and I were overjoyed when she was presented the opportunity to test out her very own kid version of a charm bracelet from GlamsterBands.
The GlamsterBands package comes with one bracelet and five different charms. We received a bright pink bracelet, along with a poodle, ladybug, flower, teddy bear and music note charms. The bracelet is strong and feels very durable, as do all of the charms. The charms fit securely enough into the bracelet that they don’t fall out during normal play, but they are easy enough for little hands to remove from the bracelet when required.
My first concern was that my daughter would not be able to insert and remove the charms on her own, but that was not the case. She got busy right away mixing and matching her favourite charms on the bracelet. Each charm has two “prongs” that insert into the holes along the bracelet, and although it requires some solid dexterity, my daughter never became frustrated with the task.
The bracelet is a fun accessory during dress-up, and also goes well with daily clothes and my daughter felt a little more “grown-up” when she wore the bracelet on an outing to the store.
GlamsterBands engage my daughter’s imagination and creativity without any prompting from mom or dad. She enjoyed picking out which charms she wanted to wear for a specific outfit or depending on the game she was playing.
I really like the bracelet colour variety that is available from GlamsterBands, as well as the many different charms (45 and counting). Because the bracelets are appropriately priced ($4 each), buying a few GlamsterBands is not out of the question and would provide for even more fun for your child, for stacking or even trading.
If you have smaller children at home (like my 2.5 year old and 11 month old), you’ll want to ensure you always know where the charms are if they aren’t on the bracelet. The charms are small and attractively coloured enough to make them tempting for taste-testing by children under age two.
So…where can you buy it?
