Winter Crown Kit
Pretty Good Craft
I bought these to use for a 'frozen' themed party. The crowns were overall very nice. The crowns had self adhesive glue on one side so you could lap them around and tack it together so it ft on the child's head well. There were a lot of letters so you could write any name. There are some foam gems and foam snowflakes as well in the packages which really helped make it 'winter-y' and they were all self adhesive which was great help. You can pop them out of their packaging easy enough so little ones don't rip them trying to get them out. Beware though, the glitter snowfakes will get glitter ALL over your hands!
What I didn't like was that Oriental Trading printed their name on the crown - usually right in the center of the crown and on what should be the 'outside' of the crown. It was small so we were able to cover it up with stickers but it's annoying to see that.
The other issue was the sequins. They have a TON of sequins but none are self adhesive. You have to use glue to put those on. Since the rest of the items are self adhesive it seems a little redundant to me. The point of self adhesive is so you don't need to use glue... so why use it for that? Because of the glue involved and the small size of the sequins using those you have to have older girls. If you get rid of the sequins it should be good for anyone 3 and up!
overall it was a good product and I'll buy it again. I'll probably buy some self adhesive jewels or something though to replace the sequins so I don't have to bring out the glue at a princess party where the girls have their best dresses on.
