"Bee Your Best" Mobile Craft Kit
This is a very cute craft when finished. But putting the bees together was a little hard for the kids. We had to put the antennas together with hot glue ahead of time.

I read reviews and purchased this for my daughter's 3rd grade class project. Although it is very cute, it is EXTREMELY unrealistic to think a child 5 & up could put this together. I always try one out prior to bringing to class, and I am so happy I did. Glue and glue sticks didn't help keep it together. The pieces don't stick to the string provided. I now have to improvise and purchase other items from a craft store so I can give it to the class on Friday. There are many pieces involved and I can definitely say, although cute, it is highly unlikely that a child under the age of 10 would not get extremely frustrated and exhausted by trying to put this together. Very disappointed!!!

So cute & a good message
I wanted to use just the bees for a decoration but when I completed a whole mobile & saw how cute it was, I used used the whole kit

Not a good purchase
I was quite disappointed in this product. It was not child-friendly and had to be adapted to be usable. It was unrealistic to think a pom pom could be glued to the end of a pipe cleaner and the pipe cleaner glued to the foam bee. The whole project would have be better if self adhesive tabs were on the back of the different parts and the ribbon much wider.
Also the words were off-stamped on several parts and there
were black smears across several of the bees.
Overall, I would not recommend this product.

I use this product for a senior get together but it's hard for them to use it because regular glue does not hold it together and super glue get all over. This project would've been better if it's self adhesive.

Very Good Project
No pieces were missing. Some lettering was not clear. The ribbon was too narrow for glue. I had to use tape to hold flowers and bees.

Pretty Good but...
I bought this craft for our VBS this year. It's all good, but it's really hard to put together using kid's glue. You'll need glue gun to put them together, so I wouldn't recommend this for young kids. I bought kid's glue, and it didn't work, so kids used scotch tapes. Also, this is a 1 hour project, so keep that in mind.

Poor Quality - Bad print
Received these in the mail and was greatly disappointed by the poor quality of the product. Was not able to use any of the floral centers as the printing was off, so instead of Bee Thankful you had Bee hankful, Bee elpful, Bee bedient, and such once you punched the pieces out. The faces of the bees were incredibly sloppy, so much so that I had to turn most of them over and redraw them myself. Also did not receive the ribbon to hang them so had to go out and buy that myself. I had hoped to put my own saying on the hive, but found that the wording they put bled all the way through. Finished, they were cute, but just be prepared if you order these, that they may not look like the picture an you will have some extra preparation work to do to make them look decent I love Oriental Trading, but this was a big disappointment.

This product is nice however it has sooo many pieces to it. In every package the children opened it only had 3 ribbons when it is suppose to come with 4. This project is a mobile however the ribbon that it is to hang from was not in provided.

Cute & Fun Project
I just got these and completed one as an example for my kindergartners' return to school in August. It is really cute and will be manageable if you DO IT IN STEPS with the kids. Like, "everyone punch out the flowers. Okay, everyone glue the small pom on the bee's face" Completed it's really adorable.
