What our experts think
This giant Hama Beads set is an excellent way of encouraging children to get creative and experiment with different patterns and shapes. Our testers made lots of different creations and were excited to make the latest trends that Hama had provided which appealed to all of the children.
We liked that there was an option to also use the press pegboard as an alternative to ironing, as the children could get it out themselves and play without parental supervision. Our testers were able to make their creations independently and some of them enjoyed designing on the app first before creating it in real life, which was a nice addition. Creative sets like this are great for developing colour, shape and pattern recognition as children make different shapes and count how many beads are needed for each design.
