Getting the Creative Juices Flowing with Gel-A-Peel Fashion Station

We are big fans of Gel-A-Peel and have had a few sets in the past. Olivia loves being able to design things her way. Sets like this are always going to be a big hit as she experiments and put her creative juices to good use. It’s safe to say she was super happy to get her hands on the Gel-A-Peel Fashion Station as she has pretty much used up all of her old supplies.

Review

Olivia has had a lot of fun playing with the Gel-A-Peel Fashion Maker set. One of the first things she tried was to make a design on an old t-shirt. Personally, it seemed a little complicated for me given the age range it is aimed at. But Olivia already knows how this works from her previous sets and got to work straight away. So I left her to it and it kept her quiet and occupied for a while until she came to show me her designs.

She was really proud of her first attempt at a design on a t-shirt. However, she didn’t scrape off the excess gel, so it left it more 3d than it should have been but she wasn’t really bothered.

There are a good few options for designing things and as of yet she hasn’t tried them all but there is enough to do to keep her busy that’s for sure!

Olivia said she really enjoyed using the set and has had it out a few times since. We have been using on our glass dining table and over the kitchen floor where there is lino. She hasn’t a mess really and it has been fairly easy to clean off if cleaned up straight away. She has since asked for more sets for Christmas as she loves Gel-A-Peel already and this is a great addition to her collection.

Verdict

Olivia loves it. I feel that the age range is pretty spot on at 8+ for this set. Younger kids may need a helping hand to get going. I am more than happy for her to use this alone and on her clothes to create whatever she wishes (within reason obviously). That being said it can get a little messy so Olivia always keeps kitchen roll to hand for any accidents.

The limited edition colours were a big hit too. She liked the fact certain ones were only available in this set,

  1. My youngest has mentioned Gel a Peel sets to me…Hinting she wants them for Christmas. They look like really fun sets.

  2. Hi Tracey, this looks like a fun set. I’m surprised it’s easy enough for eight-year-olds to master, but then I think youngsters cotton n to thing pretty quickly when it interests them. Anything that gets the creative juices flowing can’t be a bad thing. I imagine that the 3D effect Olivia created was quite interesting.
