Paw Patrol eZee Beads– If you are regular readers of Mudpie Fridays you will know that Monkey is a huge Paw Patrol fan. We even threw him a Paw Patrol Party for his fourth Birthday. I was expecting him to grow out of this but he’s still obsessed. So when I was offered a Paw Patrol themed eZee Beads set by John Adams to review I thought it would be right up his street. I wasn’t wrong he couldn’t wait to get started.

Paw Patrol eZee Beads Set

What are eZee Beads? The are very similar to another brand on the market yet they do not require an iron to get them to stick together. A simple spray of water is enough to finish off your design. Which means that children Monkey’s age can do the whole process themselves.

What do you get in the box:

  • over 900 beads in the colours needed to complete the Paw Patrol designs
  • 1 x bead tray
  • 1 x bead storage container
  • 1 x sprayer
  • 1 x instructions – clear and easy to follow including pictures!
  • 1 x bead tool
  • 4 x template sheets – Marshall, Chase and the Look Out Tower. There is also a blank to make your own design.

Monkey was very excited when he saw the kit and couldn’t wait to get started. As eZee Beads were new to me I had to hold him back a bit so I could read the instructions and make sure we did it right! Thankfully its very straightforward and the instructions are very easy to follow even with a four year old jumping up and down demanding to have a go!

Step One: Empty the beads into the storage tray. We had specific colours for the Paw Patrol characters – red, black, white, yellow, dark blue, flesh coloured, brown and tan. There were more slots than colours which means we can add to the collection at a later date.

Step Two: Select the pattern you want to make and slot it behind the bead tray, Monkey chose the Look Out Tower. He needed a bit of help to feed the template in. I found that the template did not line up with the little spikes very well. Although it wasn’t too bad if you started at the top and worked your way down.

Step Three: Monkey used his fingers to place the beads onto the tray. You could use the other end of the tool but he found it easier to use his fingers. Plus is a good way to develop some fine motor practice!

Step Four: Spray with water, the first time we didn’t spray enough and it started to come apart when I removed it from the board for him. So second time round I drenched it. That did means that we got it off the board way but its left behind some coloured residue. It also took quite a long time to dry. Longer than the suggested thirty minutes. But it did the trick.

Coming up to five Monkey was pretty much able to do this all by himself except remove it from the bead board once finished. The recommended age is 5-10 years, I do think under the age of five they may struggle and require a lot more adult intervention.

Things we love: 

  • That he can do it end to end without the need for an iron. Which also means its a lot more portable and ideal toy to take on a trip away. As without the box it doesn’t take up much room at all.
  • The end result is not rigid its quite flexible which is good as I think it means it will last a bit longer than other brands.
  • Its good to have some templates but really kids are only limited by their imaginations. Monkey has requested that I use the blank template to design one of his favourite characters – Sky.
  • Anything that helps with fine motor skills and can keep a little boy entertained for more than half an hour in my book gets a gold star!
  • Refill kits are available and they have a whole host of other designs available.
