I was so excited when the opportunity to review this product came up. My daughter is always asking me to make friendship bracelets for her etc… I really never quite got the hang of it – I know, I am friendship bracelet lacking. She still loves me though…LOL.
Anyway, My Lanyard Maker
is designed specifically to allow people like me (and my daughter) to make those bracelets, keychains etc… very easily. No skill involved.
David Crorey developed this product after babysitting his granddaughters and experiencing the awkward method of friendship bracelet making. My Friendship Bracelet Maker was a creation of his and it came along at the right time and he is now venturing into other products such as My Ribbon Barrette Maker, My Friendship Bracelet Maker Traveler, and My Image Bracelet Maker.
The first design we started was the Box Knot. I don’t know what the easiest is but I can tell you it is very easy to follow the instructions for the “maker”.
The box comes with printed instructions with full color photos. Each colored “tooth” is labelled with a number and a letter to easily follow the instructions. But on their website there are also vimeo videos to guide you through the entire process. These may be easier to follow depending on your learning style but they will also help you if you lose the paper instructions. I find the video so much easier to follow but that is because I learn so much more easily through video. I am the person who builds sheds and picnic tables without plans – can’t really follow them no matter how easy they are. Sewing? Always winging it. But… My 8 year old daughter can easily follow any written instructions…The website also has printed instructions for each design in .pdf format available for download. There are also additional designs that are not in the product itself.
I love the drawers so my daughter can take all of her supplies with her right inside the lanyard maker. Nothing additional needed and those drawers hold alot!
This is a great product for you and your son or daughter to enjoy together. Ages 8+. Need an original Christmas gift – this is definitely that gift and any young girl would love it!
