I have seen Bendaroos on television commercials, and in local stores, but haven't really thought too much of them before. I only have a toddler, so we aren't really to the stage of arts and crafts beyond coloring, but when I was contacted to do a review and giveaway for Bendaroos, I decided to give it a try. Bendaroos are basically long, colored strings coated with a special wax that you bend, fold, and wrap to create whatever you can think up. They stick to almost any surface, without leaving a residue, so no clean-up! I love the creative freedom that Bendaroos allow.
I received the Mega Pack of Bendaroos, that has a total of 500 sticks in 12 different colors. I was a little overwhelmed with the possibilities, so I did one of the basic designs from the included guide card. It was kind of fun to wind and wrap, and see my creation coming together, but the Bendaroos are stickier than I thought they would be. I'm such a girl, and I had to keep a wipe next to me, because I didn't like the sticky feeling on my fingers. :) My husband was way more impressive and did the 3D pig. I think its adorable! It took him awhile, but he didn't think it was too hard, and Max loved both of them. He destroyed my bear pretty easily though.
