Back at the beginning of the Summer Imogen was lucky enough to review the Cool Bandz from Flair’s Cool Create range and during the school holidays she’s been busy testing out a couple more of their creative sets. The latest of of these was the Bloom Pops Flower Design Studio. The Bloom Pops Flower Design Studio is suitable for children aged 5+ and comes with 1 Bloom Pop Maker, 6 sticky pads, 6 flower bases, 6 silicone buttons, 18 flower spacers, 1 unpopper tool, 1 display tree, 45 sparkly gems, 2 sheets of fabric flower petals and instructions. If you’ve seen the Bloom Pops television advert then you’ll know the phrase “Pick! Stack! Pop!” and that is simply what you need to do to create your very own Bloom Pop flower. You’ll need to start bu putting one of the flower bases onto the station and then chose your fabric shapes and stack them up using one of the blue spacers in between each one. Once you have finished designing your Bloom Pop place one of the silicone buttons in the centre and place Poppi on top. Press down on Poppi’s head and she’ll press your Bloom Pop together. Once put together you can add the sparkly gem stickers and one of the double sided sticky pads to the back so that you can wear your creation like a badge. You can also use the swirls of the tree’s branches to display your Bloom Pops for all to see. The display tree does sit nicely in the base station but it can also freestand, so Imogen has put hers in pride of place in her bedroom to show off her Bloom Pops.
Imogen has loved creating with the Bloom Pops Flower Design Studio and has made a variety of different combinations thanks to the large amount of accessories included in the set. Bloom Pops can simply be unpopped with the handy unpopper tool and the pieces repopped together but there are only 6 bases and buttons limiting the amount that you can make in one go.
Overall the Bloom Pops Flower Design Studio has been a big hit and has easily keep Imogen occupied during the wet days of school holiday, she’s added Bloom Pops to cards for friends, decorated photo frames with them and accessorised her favourite outfits with them. The Bloom Pops Design Studio is available from Flair priced at £19.99.
