Pom-Pom Pal Kit

Blogged under Crafty Videos by Tammy on Wednesday 23 September 2015 at 12:01 pm

Recently, I was lucky enough to receive a very cool product to review from Silver Dolphin Books called Pom-pom Pals: Pets, which normally retails for $18.95, but of course, is discounted if purchased through Amazon. It’s a kit that has a small how-to manual plus enough supplies to make four pom-pom animals. Pictured above is the kit opened up with the small book that accompanies it on the left side. As it happened, my college craft club was getting ready to meet for the first time this semester, and while this may seem a little young for college students, I thought it would be a fun ice-breaker type project.

And I was right! Club members had a blast.

At the start of each semester, I basically have to recruit all over again, so I never know who is going to show up or what their skill level will be. The kit was perfect because it was super easy, and that meant anyone could do it. I even had one reluctant student who said he was just there to be with his girlfriend, and eventually, he decided he had to make a pom-pom pal too.

Here is one of the finished guinea pigs made by a club member. This was actually a crowd favorite. And it turned out so, so cute! Seriously, adorable!

The kit is available through the Amazon link at the top of this post, and considering all of the supplies you get with it plus a book that, obviously, you can use over and over again to make more “pals,” I think it is very reasonable priced. Tuck this away for a snow-day or rainy-day project for your kids, or break it out and have fun with adults too.

    This is so cute I can hardly believe it! I love pom-poms anyway, and this kit looks like a great way to learn how to make them! Thanks! jean 🙂

    They are even cuter in person, kind of hard to get a good photo!
