What is it
Create lots of colourful eZee Beads shapes with the special Studio Set. Children can follow the design sheets or make their own creations; once finished they just need to spray with water, leave to dry, then carefully remove the bead design.
The set includes studio, design sheets, bead tool, water sprayer and 10 different bead colours; all neatly packed away in a carry case.

What our experts think
The eZee Beads Studio Set offers lots of colour choices and a good range of templates; children could also design their own masterpieces, developing creativity and giving children the opportunity to explore their own style. The set was very easy to use; the beads are very stable on the board, the colours are all in separate pots, and the carry case offers a handy way to tidy up afterwards. The small beads require a little patience and hand-eye coordination to use, supporting these skills.
The beads were easy to fix together with a water spray but they did remain sticky for quite a while, and took longer to dry than stated. Once fully dry they were stable and not brittle, which was good as this meant they didn’t break easily. Some of our testers were worried about the ‘staining’ from the beads, but this was easily wiped off of the board. There was a concern that the beads would be used up very quickly, so these would need to be replaced; There are refil packs available http://www.johnadams.co.uk/product/ezee-beads-refill-pack/
