And I’ll be doing whatever snow does in summer...Aquabeads Frozen Playset Review

It may be hot, hot, hot outside. In fact it feels like the hottest summer I can remember for years. But we've been trying to keep cool as we hide indoors from the heat with the Aquabeads Frozen Playset that Miss T has been sent to review.

Thrilled to receive an Aquabeads Frozen Playset to review

Unboxing the parcel!
We've raved about just how much we love Aquabeads sets and playsets so much in the past that I feel like I'm starting to sound like a broken record - but in summary we love...
  • Having creative crafting fun without all the mess - Did you know that as well as the templates that come with each set, you can download a whole host of additional templates from the Aquabeads website (or of course go totally freestyle and create your own designs).
  • The innovations we've seen in the different Aquabeads sets and playsets (like the scraper tool in the Despicable Me Minions playset and the new-style sprayer bottle we've seen introduced recently).
  • The playsets are perfect for storing your beads when not in use to keep them dry in the bead palette because the design table clips securely on top as a cover. 
  • Brilliant for developing fine motor skills - Some of the sets come with bead pens and some don't but either way little fingers get good at picking up those beads and popping them in place. 

We've finally seemed to work out the difference between the Aquabeads sets and the Aquabeads playsets. It seems the sets are the smaller sets containing beads, templates, a layout tray and water squirter. Whilst the playsets contain and bead palette (to sort and store your beads in), a design table to clip onto the bead palette as a lid when not in use and to put your design table on at other times, some playsets do contain a bead pen whilst others don't. The bead pens are available to purchase separately and it is well worth having one if you are an Aquabeads fan. 

For some of the playsets (like the Star Wars one we previously reviewed here), the design table and layout tray are integrated as one.

On the back of each box, it states very clearly what is included so you know exactly what you are getting.

The new style sprayer bottles are brilliant. They give a much lighter even spray of water meaning far less mishaps when spraying the beads. We've found it means that the designs come off the design table far more easily without leaving a residue behind. The beads look nice and shiny too!

Miss T had great fun making Elsa from Frozen. The templates included in this playset are Elsa, Anna, Olaf, and some snowflake/ice palace designs.

Here she is in a little video working hard on her Elsa design:

She soon topped up her bead palette with the rest of the beads that were included and got started on the Anna design...

As so many of the components are interchangeable, she was able to simply use the design table layout tray from her very first Aquabeads starter set whilst Elsa was drying on the design table from this playset.

And after Anna is finished, I'm sure she will soon be onto Olaf.

We've thoroughly enjoyed this playset so far and we've got plenty of play value left to go. You can purchase the Aquabeads Frozen Playset here.

Proud to be Aquabeaders:
