Moose Toys has brought their popular sticker line to a whole new level of creativity with a variety of new items! The Gelarti arts and crafts line is sure to spark children's imaginations with new sets including glow-in-the-dark, glitter, and foil stickers to create and stick on their walls, windows, lockers and more!
I love finding fun arts and crafts products that encourage my kids to use their imaginations to design and create. That's why I was excited when introduced to Gelarti and the engaging, creative experience they offer children with their products.
We were sent a Gelarti package to review, including several new Gelarti Kits.
Both Kaelyn and Kaden LOVE to do any type of art project, so I knew this was going to be right up their alley. The moment they saw the fun kits, they were begging to try them out. Of course I couldn't resist, I was just as excited to use them!
The Gelarti Glitter Designer Series, 3D Glow-In-The-Dark Designer Series, and Scene Pack all included several sticker sheets and paint pens.
Getting started, it took my kids a couple of minutes to get used to how hard they needed to squeeze the paint pen so as to get just the right amount of paint on the sticker (not too much, not too little). In no time at all, they were pros and working away at creating their very own stickers!
My 3 year old was squealing with excitement as he'd grab a new sticker to create. He loved being able to choose from a variety of paint pens and stickers to be creative and have something of his very own to hang on his wall or window.
It was fun watching he and Kaelyn decorate their stickers. Both of them took their time, trying to stay in the lines and make them look just perfect. I knew they both loved artsy activities, but I had no idea they'd want to spend so much time creating sticker after sticker. It has been great!
We spent a couple of hours doing this together the first time, and it was such a nice time to be able to sit down and do something with them. Kaden really enjoys the Glow-in-the-dark Designer series because the colors are a lot of fun, while Kaelyn was drawn to the glitter designer series because of the "sparkle". :)
Every day they ask if they can use their Gelarti products, and it's been fun to see not only what they come up with, but also how proud they are when they're finished!
It is suggested to leave Gelarti stickers to dry for at least 6 hours, but we've just been letting them sit overnight so that they are completely dry. That has worked best for us! Once the stickers are completely dry, we peel them off and stick it on any smooth surface. The kids like hanging them on the window best, but they really can be used anywhere. And, the great part is, they're reusable, so if you want to move, you just peel it off and place it somewhere else!
We've hung a lot of the stickers they've made already, which makes them even more proud to show off their great works of art.
Along with these fun kits, we also received the Gelarti Activity Pack and Gelarti Designer Studio. What I love about both of these kits, is that they come with the basic sticker sheets and paint pens, but also extras to make the experience even easier and more fun! The Gelarti Activity Pack includes everything a child needs to get their collection started. There are eight sticker sheets, three paint pens, two glitter paint pens, a marbling tool, two swing tags, a birthday card and an activity booklet.
Kaelyn and Kaden were tickled to see that they could actually make tags and a card. This was something different than they had been able to do with the other sets, so they were pretty excited!
The Gelarti Designer Studio is also a lot of fun and makes the whole process even easier to create cool Gelarti designs and stylish stickers. The kit includes a 360º turntable that they can use to easily create from all angles. There's also space to store their creations, pens and sticker sheet making it a really nice addition to the Gelarti product line and one I'd recommend to anyone who uses them!
We've really been happy with the Gelarti packs and would definitely recommend them to others. Perfect for decorating notebooks, lockers, windows, walls, etc...Gelarti is great for back-to-school or any time of year!
