What It Is Clikits, the new fashion arts and crafts system from LEGO, provides girls with endless opportunities to create jewelry and accessories that reflect their individual personalities. The line includes sixteen compatible, collectible kits that include everything needed to make jewelry and accessories, room decorations and picture frames.
The large selection of products available from Clikits ranges in size, complexity and price, from simple sets for about $4 to full design kits for around $30. There is even a Let's Party set that contains invitations, Clikits pieces and goodie bags for six kids. (A great option for play dates and parties.)
Why It's Fun Clikits rely on the same push and snap principles that LEGO is known for. However, instead of building firehouses and castles, you're building bangle bracelets and decorative pillows. The creative process is both simple and satisfying, and the high quality pieces are easy for small hands to work.
While boys typically like the process of building and stacking brick-on-brick as much as the ultimate result, girls tend to be far less linear or structured in their play with construction systems. Thus, the open-ended, intuitive process of creating jewelry and accessories is very satisfying for girls.
Arts and crafts projects are always a great way for a child to spend some playtime. This type of play stimulates imagination and creativity and fosters pride in achievement. Clikits give girls an arts and crafts project that they can use and wear when finished and have as much fun showing off the finished products as they do creating them.
Who's Going To Love It This is ideal for girls in the 6-to-8 age range who want the satisfaction and excitement of creating arts and crafts projects but who may not have the dexterity or patience to do more complex projects.
This is an ideal marriage of the best of crafts and toys for girls in this age bracket.
(Parents and caregivers will love the fact that there is not glue and aside from keeping the parts together there is no mess at all.)
What To Be Aware Of Clikits kits contain many small pieces and should be kept away from children under 3.
