Holiday Gift Guide Day 24 ~ The Orb Factory

We have done a few reviews for The Orb Factory in the past and I'm definitely a fan! They have joined in our Holiday Gift Guide and we were able to review the Curiosity Kits Pulsar Powerballs, SparkleUps, Plush Craft Owl Pal Pillow and Moastics! 

The Pulsar Powerballs kit includes enough items to make 5 Bouncy Balls AND includes 2 superbright LED lights to put inside the largest ones! It says for ages 6-13... but don't let that fool you. My husband and my oldest who is 15 (and always too old for kid stuff) wanted in on this project! 

They had so much fun making these! The balls came out so pretty, colors vibrant and the LED lights made them sparkle every time they were bounced. You can make tye-dyed effects or mix the crystals together for a hodge-podge look. It definitely created a couple of hours of family fun at the table and will continue on as they play with them!

Up next we checked out our new Owl Pal Plush Craft! My daughter loves seeing when I receive one of these in the mail because she knows that she'll have an afternoon of crafting ahead! It comes with your pillow pal, the fabric and fabric mushing tool and a color coding sheet. She needs minimal help putting it together ~ mostly checking for empty spaces after she's worked on it.

I think it was about 2 hours from start to finish for her to get her Owl Pal Pillow complete. She was worried about putting on his eyes but once
she discovered that it was held together with Velcro she was good to go!

The SparkleUps and Sticky Mosaics each have the same type of concept to them ~ like a color by number they provide you with a picture and a color coding sheet. Instead of coloring in the correct colors, you get to place little jewels or mosaic pieces to create your picture!

The SparkleUps are made on a sticker. So after they've put their designs together, they can stick it wherever they'd like! The Mosaics designs become a nice picture after they are done! My daughter has hers hung up in her room right now!

Some happy kids after all of the playing! We're sure that your little ones will have a great time experiencing the fun that The Orb Factory has to offer too!
