Create Fun Toys with PomTree Craft Kits for Children

Thank you to PomTree, Inc. for providing complimentary product samples for us to base this review upon and for providing an additional product for our contest prize. All opinions expressed are my own.

PomTree Kids is a company dedicated to giving kids the chance to have battery-free fun with arts and crafts that can be played with for hours on end once they are assembled. They boast that their kits are easy to put together, fun, require no glue, and are mess-free. We were sent two of their 3D kits to try out and we were really excited to assemble and play with these crafts.

The Feathered Friends Post Office, winner of the Dr. Toy's Best Picks award, contains 94 pieces that fit together to make a fun mailbox home for the birds included. This kit was easy to assemble, though it did require my hot glue gun a couple times because they wouldn’t stay together. Some of the pieces were not cut very well, so I had to use scissors a couple times as well. Overall, the kit was fairly easy and my 6 ½ year old only needed my help a few times. He has played with it quite a bit since its completion, so it has continued to be fun once the assembly was complete.

The Twinkle Top Treehouse we received was missing its instructions and it had 275 pieces, so it was significantly harder to put together. This one took my 12 year old and myself over an hour to do and it was very irritating at points. This one also require my hot glue gun and scissors several times to hold pieces in place. Once complete, this treehouse is very cute, though not very stable, and my 6 year old has played with it as well.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  If you ever experience issues with your PomTree product, such as missing instructions, you can simply contact PomTree Customer Service at (855) 458-8766 for assistance.  One of PomTree's top priorities is customer satisfaction.

My general experience with these kits was okay. They would have been fun if they’d both had instructions and were either more stable or had some way to adhere some pieces together. They have been fun to play with post-assembly and my 6 year old has enjoyed them. If you have a patient child who loves crafts, these kits would be great for them. Just be prepared to need glue sometimes.
