Bendaroos Review & Giveaway


I was super excited to find out we would be getting a chance to review Bendaroos.  My daughter has wanted these for a long time but they are just something we had never got around to purchasing.  Now I wish I would have bought these a LONG TIME AGO!  They provide hours of fun.  We received the Bendaroos 500 piece set.  This set comes with 250 rainbow & 250 neon Bendaroos, 10 traceable templates and simple to use fun guide with step by step instructions on how to make your favorite creations.  The two pictures below show us playing with them and a ladybug we made. 



These are perfect for back to school!!  I love having something to keep my daughter entertained after school other than sitting in front of the TV all day.  Bendaroos really bring out their creativity!  I love that they can be used over, and over and over.  Bendaroos do not leave a mess or any sticky residue which is awesome.

Bendaroos has a lot of great new kits coming out this fall.  We can't wait to try the new ones and a few on our must have list include glow in the dark and Bendaroos Creativity Center-

Bendaroos® Glow-in-the-Dark Mega Pack



Bendaroos® building sticks now come in fun, glow-in-the-dark styles perfect for kids’ sleepovers, camping trips, or playtime at home. The glow-in-the-dark sticks are made of the same durable, flexible material as the original Bendaroos® building sticks but come in cool glowing colors. The Bendaroos® Glow-in-the-Dark Mega Pack includes 250 glow and 250 rainbow-colored building sticks. (MSRP: $19.99; Available: Fall 2010)

Bendaroos® Creativity Center



Now kids can store and display their Bendaroos® building sticks creations for all to see with the Bendaroos® Creativity Center! The colorful platform allows kids to construct new models, showcase their favorite creations, and store spare Bendaroos® building sticks. The Bendaroos® Creativity Center features a rotating plate, four molding and shaping tools, three BendaModels™ for easy 3-D modeling, scissors, and 100 Bendaroos® building sticks. (MSRP: $19.99; Available: Fall 2010)

There are so many uses for Bendaroos including great gifts!  If you are like me and have thought about buying these but never got around to it I would definitely recommend getting some.  Your kids will love you (even more!)  You can also enter to win Bendaroos on Facebook- Until September 10th Bendaroos will be giving away 10 – 500 packs to 10 lucky winners each week!
