Since Christmas, my children have found joy in many new toys. From crafts to silly games, we have been very entertained during our holiday break! One highlight has been using three new Num Noms toys. Today on Theresa’s Reviews, I’m featuring all three toys and explaining what they do.
Num Noms Toy Review
When my daughter wrote Num Noms on her wish list for Santa, I discovered a lot of tiny toys that all smell delightful. While you can collect the small toys in different colors and scents, you can use the larger toy sets to make exciting creations.
Lip Gloss Truck Craft Kit
First, Samantha was incredibly excited to open her new Lipgloss Truck Craft Kit on Christmas morning. Every since she saw it in a catalogue or commercial, she was eager to own it. As a girl who adores dressing nice and using kiddie beauty supplies, the craft kit fits well with her interests.
With the kit, you can design your own lip gloss. Each kit comes with two types of flavors, three containers, and sparkles.
Make Your Own Creation
In a pink container, you receive a colorless, flavorless lip balm. To double check that the lip gloss would fit in one of the containers, I divided the lip balm into eight sections using a small tool that came with the kit.
Next, you take out one section and put it in a mixing bowl. I recommend having an adult do this to help children get started. It can be difficult to take out the right amount without getting messy.
Add 10 drops of your preferred flavor, and cover with sprinkles. Then, mix thoroughly using the tool. My daughters loved helping with this part. They took turns adding the sprinkles and stirring.
Use The Soft Serve Ice Cream Truck
This next part is fun and exciting for children. Taking the mixture, you use the tool to scoop it into the top part of the truck. Push down, and the lip gloss comes out like soft serve ice cream! Our mixture fit perfectly in the lip gloss container that came with the kit.
Try Out Your Lip Gloss
When you finish making your lip gloss, you can add your Num Nom to the top as a lid! The tops and bottoms of the containers are all interchangeable, so you can use any Num Nom you want.
We all enjoyed trying out the lip gloss! Not only was it sparkly and clear, but it also tasted nice and smelled good.
Overall, the Lipgloss Truck Craft Kit was easy to use, and it was simple to clean. To Samantha, making her own beauty supplies was entertaining and exciting.
Num Noms Art Cart
Since Georgiana also wanted Num Noms, she received the Art Cart for Christmas. She was very happy to be like her older sister and try out these new toys.
Stationery For Creative Children
With the art cart, you receive three popcorn-shaped erasers, an ink pad, a stamp, and a pink pencil. This set was perfect for my artistic children, who love spending their afternoons designing, drawing, and writing.
My younger daughter loved drawing and using the stencil with the pink pencil. Since she’s only three years old, I don’t always let her use art supplies when she’s unsupervised. She was really excited to receive her own art supplies that she can use by herself.
She was generous enough to share the ink pad and stamp with her older sister. They both loved spending the afternoon making movie tickets and posters for us to use for our family movie night. Samantha even used it to write a letter about how much she loves Num Noms. All of their creations smelled lovely too!
Although the Art Cart did less than the Lip Gloss Truck Craft Kit did, it provided my daughters with hours of play and didn’t require nearly as much supervision as the Lip Gloss Truck did. Both girls enjoyed using the Art Cart and will use it much more in the future.
Num Noms Lights Freezie Pop Maker
Finally, we tried out the Num Noms Lights Freezie Pop Maker. Samantha is going through a phase when she wants to get in the kitchen and make treats by herself. Not only did this kit give her the opportunity to make frozen treats using the mixes that were provided, but it also came with recipes you can use with your own ingredients.
Creating Your Own Freezie Pops
With this kit, you get three freezie pops, a holder, a mixing bowl and spoon, and three mixtures. Each mixture has a different flavor, including cotton candy, blue raspberry, and pineapple.
My daughters decided on the cotton candy flavor. I mixed it with some water to make a sweetly flavored freezie pop mixture.
To put the mixture in the Num tops, I removed the sticks. Next, I put the Nom lid on each one, and I put the holding container on a stable surface in my freezer. One major benefit of this kit is the holding container. We have other products that help children make popsicles, but this one looks more fun with its bright colors and fun design.
Waiting For Your Freezie Pop Creation
Although the directions said to wait seven hours, we waited six hours before taking them out of the freezer. I was happy to find that the freezie pops were completely frozen.
To get to the freezie pop, you have to take the Num lid off the base. Samantha held one end and I pried the lid off at the other end. The lid was difficult to pull it off, but you could run it under warm water for a few seconds to make it easier.
Samantha was very excited that her freezie pop could light up in different colors. From green to pink, it shone beautifully. This would be a fun popsicle to eat outside at night in the summer! I liked that it lit up with a bright, vibrant color.I thought the Lights Freezie Pop Maker was fun. My favorite part was that you can easily use your own recipes. This makes the kit practical and useful.
Num Noms Make Activities Fun!
Although there are many kits for making lip gloss, stationery, and popsicles, Num Noms make these activities more exciting. Being able to collect the small figures is exciting for children. I like that the toys come in light, good smelling scents, which makes them different from some other small figures you can collect. We had lots of fun doing these activities together.
