Embracing a Healthy Family: Zirrly Super Beads Jungle Animals Review: Imaginative & Educational Fun in One Kit

Zirrly Super Beads Jungle Animals Review: Imaginative & Educational Fun in One Kit

*******
We've been trying to do more arts & craft projects to enhance my homeschool curriculum as well as to have more fun so we were thrilled to try Super Beads from Zirrly. We chose the Super Beads Jungle Animals and decided to have my middle daughter and their niece and nephew join in the fun. Our kit came complete with everything needed to make several jungle animals and with the boards, they can create whatever their imagination allows! Zirrly provides an easier way by using the Super Beads which require no hot irons or glue and with the patterns and boards, the children can build their design, spray with water (bottle included) and let dry. 

Super Beads Jungle Animals


Our kit included the following:

  • Lion
  • Rhino
  • Elephant
  • Zebra
  • Monkey
  • Design Templates
  • Super Beads
  • Super Beads Work Tray
  • 1 Spray Bottle
  • 6 Boards
  • 1 Design Tool
  • Instructions

We started out getting everything organized which did not require a lot of time. The anticipation of unboxing the kit was exciting for the little ones. It was quite manageable as my oldest, 14, assisted in creating the works of art. Once the designs were put in place on the boards, it allowed the smaller ones an ease in where to place the appropriate colored Super Beads onto the template. Once we were done with the designs, all it took was some sprays from the water bottle and they had fun completed projects! We also found that if they didn't stick together, we could just respray with the water and they would refuse together.



It was a fun project for all three, regardless of age, as they really enjoyed working with their aunt and she enjoyed showing them how to make this playful monkey. I thought the younger ones might have problems handling the small beads but they did just fine along with my older child. My older hands seemed to have a little more trouble but that's expected as we become more seasoned (smile). I think utilizing the small beads, tray and boards was ideal for younger ones that might need some hand eye coordination activities. They never became frustrated with the first build but after the first one they built, they were ready for a break.

We found we had to wash our hands in between using the red or orange beads and lighter colors like yellow as it would bleed onto the lighter colors. It was important follow the directions and ensure hands were completely dry and to wash with soap and water afterwards. The instructions do state to wash one's hands and have I mentioned they are also safe and non-toxic? 


Overall, they had fun with the Zirrly Super Beads Jungle Animals kit. They were able to build their projects while helping one another and learned how to follow direction. The ability to make the various jungle animals and their other creations allowed them to utilize their imagination and creativity. Not requiring a hot iron or glue was a big plus for me! The colors coming off on their fingers wasn't really a problem since it did easily wash off. The trays and patterns (templates) helped them create something that looked like the box and instructions which was another win as they felt it was pretty cool to have completed something that looked exactly like it should have looked. The flexibility of the kit also allowed for children to create what they wanted by using the board without the patterns (template).
