Kikkerland Make Your Own Painting Pendulum Reviews

Product Tested By Nioki Doggett – Maurice 8 Years

Lovely box, sustainable box. I thought it was an interesting concept fusing art and science. Instructions easy to follow. My son had no issues setting this up. My son found the fusion between art and science interesting, this made using the product both fun and educational. Relatively straightforward to put paint in vessel. My son enjoyed creating different designs. We need more paints as a result! This was used daily for the first week. This did keep my son entertained. The art he created is displayed in his bedroom. My son enjoyed the sense and use of gravity with art. I liked the designs my son created. Age suitability ideas as an 8 year old could use this product alone and follow the instructions without much assistance from an adult. I think this is reasonably priced. I would purchase as Christmas presents for children of similar age, it’s a different concept and the fusion of art and science adds an educational element. I would recommend for the same reason. Great design, good concept, unique and educational. Great design, educational, fusion of art and science, great packaging, unique. Nioki Doggett – Maurice 8 Years

It came in a nice box. Looked very promising. I liked the idea as you can assemble it and then make art. I was expecting a leaflet but instructions were on the box. They were quite small and not very clear. This was fairly easy to make and set up. They did enjoy getting creative and they found ways of adjusting the syringe to create art very interesting. The paint was easy to put in the vessel and held paint well. My youngest is very creative and she enjoyed using this. This was used a couple of times and then she got bored with it. This did keep them entertained for the initial time as building it is part of the fun process. My daughter keeps a portfolio of all her art so the creations were put in her portfolio. My daughter enjoyed the assembly and the setting up of the frame. Then the adjusting of the syringe to create the designs. I liked the sturdy way it was assembled and ease of use. I would say the age suitability was suitable. I would say that this does require assembly to use and the instructions weren’t very clear. This was fun to assemble and use for a while but my daughter got bored quickly. This is a niche product and there is only so much you can do. Easy to assemble and correct ( when you know what you’re doing). Teaches children about gravity. It’s different not seen anything like this before.

Looked an impressive product and nicely packaged. More suitable for an older child to do. I liked it as I thought it was a different idea for crafting. Instructions were yellow print on a light brown box made them hard to read. Instructions were very basic and didn’t really explain how to use it well. The cardboard was hard to out together and ended up wobbly. It was a good idea but just didn’t work well. Paint went in well but dripped out the end. The paint just came out of the syringe in blobs. We tried different consistencies but the paper was just paper with blue blobs on, no patterns at all. The syringe tip was too big to make thin designs as on the packaging. This was only used a few times as did not work for us and was frustrating. Unfortunately for us this did not live up to our expectations and did not work well and we were not able to create a range of designs. It’s aimed at older children but as a 10 year old and adult couldn’t make it work well, I’m not sure 8 would be suitable. The concept was good but we could not get it to work at all. Good concept but the ink came out of the syringe in blobs. The syringe tip was too big. The designs on the box were not achievable. The box has very basic instructions in yellow print but on a light brown box, were very hard to read. The cardboard stand was hard to put together. Michelle Newman – Ellis 10 years
