Gemmies is a kit with fun connectable pieces which enable kids to create designs of their own imagination. Using all of the hundreds of colorful pieces, kids can clip and connect different rings, sparkling crystal gems, and more. For kids who are unsure where to start, there are eight templates to get them going. Once they get the hang of things, there is no limit to what they can do with the bright pieces and gems.
The cost of Gemmies is $24.99 plus $8.99 shipping, for a total price of $33.98. This price was obtained from the As Seen on TV commercial page found at gemmies.ca; however, the company has since ceased selling Gemmies and has taken down the website. Gemmies may still be found for sale on Amazon or Ebay.
The kit comes with eight templates that kids can use to start them off with their creative side. There are connectors, rings, and a star tool in place to help them really make the most out of the pieces. Kids will find over eight hundred small crystal bead pieces of various colors, all of which glow brightly. Use them and then take them apart to make even more designs.
This is one of the few toys on the market where you can buy refills packages with different designs and templates. That means you can keep the storage container that comes with the first purchase, then add new refill kits as you go on.
This type of design is a great gift because it challenges kids. It produces something tangible, something they can give as gifts to other friends or family. What's more, it challenges kids to think up creative designs rather than just following formulas.
When you order the gift, the hundreds of pieces can be stored in the special building platform provided. Said platform makes it easy to work by providing light. Even if you are not using batteries to light it up, the unit stores all of the gems and rings when not being used. This alleviates the issue of things getting lost.
Gemmies is a great way for kids to make special crystal creations. Using these kits they can literally put together any combination of rings, connectors, and crystal pieces. Clip, connect, and create whatever animal or idea you can make. It is literally all up to you. Put them together to make sparkling animal creations, jewelry, or anything. You just clip and connect the pieces together to make bracelets, masks, rings, and more.
Start by clipping the Gemmies crystals together.
Connect more pieces as you build on the project. For example, take one ring and connect four crystals, then connect four more crystals of another color. Mix and match clear crystals with blue crystals to produce the sparkling eyes on the head of a dog or cat.
Create unique sparkling creations using all manner of colors. The eight templates are there to help you make eight fun ideas including a turtle, gold fish, puffer fish, big eye fish, cherries, cupcake, candy, and apple.
Due to the fact that there are many small pieces contained in this, it is important not to let small children near it. The company does not state anywhere what the age limit should be, though the pieces are small enough that anyone under the age of 5 could easily choke on them. As such, it is recommended that if this is given to smaller children, a parent or adult be present at all times. Also be cautious of working with the Gemmies around pets who might accidentally swallow the pieces.
The platform that is featured on the site, on which kids can create their designs lights up to help kids made unique creations, but it requires 2 AAA batteries.
