Elmers Magnificent Manicure review
No matter what age, every girl deserves to be pampered. When I received the Magnificent Manicure Kit by Elmers in the mail for review I was a bit hesitant because the age range is ages 8+ and Sophia is just going to be 4. The minute I started reading the product directions that hesitation was quickly put to rest and I was very excited to try it out with her! Sophia was just as excited to make her very own lotion and sea salt scrub!
What I loved the most about the kit was that in the instructions it includes a group of questions regarding the step you are taking in making your spa products, challenging the child to evaluate what they are doing on a different level. So not only is the child having a blast having their girly fun, they are learning chemistry as well! As some of you know, Sophia has sensory processing disorder and part of the discomfort for her is tactile aversion (The feel of everyday items can upset her immensely) so this was also a very therapeutic project for her as she had to feel some different textures that she wasn't used to!
If you have a little lady or tween that loves to be girly this is a great item! The Elmers Magnificent Manicure Kit just picked up Creative Child Magazine's 2009 Toy of the Year Award in the Educational Toys Category. The kit is available now at your local Toys "R" Us and Toysrus.com and retails at a low $19.99 Sophia and I definitely give this a two thumbs up and we cant wait to use it again!
