Inside the box were these cards that had colored dots on them so that you could see what color beads to put on the clear peg boards.
These are the clear boards that you place on top of the cards.
You can hook them together to make bigger pictures.
It comes with the water bottle to spray the beads with as well as a helpful tool.
It also comes with a tray to put your beads in while your working.
We picked our animals and got started. It's a pretty simple process. You take he beads and place them over the pegs with the matching color underneath.
The tray is provided so that you can keep your beads in order after opening the packets.
We tried using the tool and using our fingers. We all agreed that using your fingers is easier for putting the beads on. Taking them off, if necessary, is when the tool is useful. The tool is also almost necessary though for taking the finished animal off of the peg board.
I should have got pictures of when we sprayed the animals, but it really is simple. After you place all of the beads on the peg board, you take the small, included spray bottle and spray the animal while it's still on the peg board. There were no exact instructions on how much water to spray, or what temperature the water should be.
So what I did was to make the water slightly warm, not hot, and I held the spray bottle about 6 inches away and sprayed the animal, using the entire bottle. I don't know if this is overkill or not, but it's what I did and it worked just fine.
After I sprayed it, I let it sit out on the counter for about an hour. Then I took the provided tool and used it to gently remove the animal from the peg board. I then turned it over and gave the animal a quick spray on the back side. I then let it sit out until completely dry. Most of the time this was overnight for us as we seemed to do these in the evening. In the morning they were perfect and could be held, played with or whatever you wanted to do with them.
We had fun putting the animals together. My son loved the crocodile the most.
Here are all of the animals that we made.
This was pretty fun to do. We did find that the beads were a little small, but not so small that you couldn't do it, but if they could be a little bigger, that would be great. The trays also were a little small. It was hard to get your fingers in there and get the beads out. If the trays could be a little wider, that would also be great.
The one real issue that I had was with the orange beads. These seemed to spread the color. It would get on your hands, and on the white beads if you put white on after putting orange on. I'm not sure if there is a way to stop the orange color from getting on your hands, but that is the only color that seemed to have this issue.
These Zirrly Super Beads are pretty cool. You can make all kinds of things with these. They have many different kits to choose from.
