Miss T adores Aquabeads. Ever since her godmother gave her a playset for her birthday last year, she's been totally hooked on these little colourful beads that magically stick together with a spray of water.Aquabeads sent her the Finding Dory Aquabeads Playset to review.
Miss T did actually find the previous style bead pen easier to use but that may change with practice.
Then she took a break from it for a few days. Then she decided she didn't want to carry on with it so we packed it all away.
The following day, she wanted to play with the Aquabeads playset again. She once again chose the Nemo design to work on. She concentrated hard and put the beads in place. Then took a break. The following day, she did some more.
Then she took another break. This time after asking her if she wanted to carry on, she said she wanted to pack it away for now. So the beads were put back in the tray and I have no doubt she will again get them out next time she wants to play Aquabeads.
So as much as I wanted to just place the final few beads on and spray it with water so that it was 'done', I had to resist that urge and respect the fact that Miss T is getting a huge amount of enjoyment from the process rather than feeling the need to get an end product out of it.
As I write this blogpost, I don't have a finished Marlin to show you, nor a Nemo or a Dory or Hank the Octopus. But I don't mind and I hope you don't too because Miss T has enjoyed the Finding Dory Aquabeads playset regardless and I'm sure she will continue to do so.
You can buy the Aquabeads Finding Dory Playset from Amazon and other good toy retailers.
We are delighted to be official Aquabeaders!
