Moose Toys, the creator of Blingles and Gelarti arts & crafts toys, sent me their latest products for review on my dad blog. They are called Glitzi Globes. They are awesome. My girls love them. My pre-schooler likes them too, but the girls won’t let him play with the snow globes. Meanies! These are the products Moose Toys sent to me for review: Glitzi Globes Showcase (giveway item), Glitzi Globes Starter Pack, and Glitzi Globes 3-Pack. Glitzi Globes do-it-yourself snow globe kits are now available in stores.
Glitzi Globes Showcase
This is their flagship product. With this kit you can make one regular size snow globe and four mini globes. The globes are fairly easy to make, but my eight-year old daughter needed the help of her big sister to make the globes. The kit includes a globe maker for the mini-globes. Just turn the mini-dome upside down in the globe maker, and then add water, deco shapes and glitter pellet. After that, use the lid of the globe maker to attach a character and base plate to the mini-dome.
The regular size snow globe is actually easier to make in my opinion. Just assemble the carousel, add glitter pellet, close the lid and then add water. According to the instructions, you’re suppose to use the included water bottle. But the bottle is little so it’s faster to use the faucet to fill the globe. On another note, it’s a good idea to crush the glitter pellet before you place in the globe. The bigger pellet doesn’t dissolve as well as the little glitter pellet for the mini globes.
Note: the product box shows ten mini globes, but only four are included. For additional mini-globes, you need to purchase their three-pack (see below).
Glitzi Globes Starter Pack
They call this a starter pack, but it’s more like a kids jewelry kit. With the starter kit, you can make a mini-globe ring, necklace and bracelet. The starter pack includes a globe maker (like the one in showcase product above), a small water bottle and enough material to make three mini globe jewelry items. Just like Glitzi Globes Showcase, the starter pack can get a little messy because we’re working with water here.
Glitzi Globes 3-Pack
The Glitzi Globes Showcase includes a display stand for up to ten mini-globes. However, it only includes enough material to make four mini globes. If you want to create additional globes, you will need to purchase a 3-pack. There are six themes to choose from: Fantasy, Jungle, Party, Ocean, Princess and Carnival.
