Charmazing - Tween Bracelet Collection Review

Emma likes to craft and create.  She especially likes receiving craft kits that are geared towards girls her age.  One that she recently fell in love with is Charmazing
Charmazing is a custom charm bracelet collection that provides tweens with more than 100 different charms in 11 unique themed collections categorized in two worlds, Karma (positive energy) and Nature (powerful energy). Among the must-have new creativity-inspiring kits in the debut Charmazing! collection for ages 8-12 are:

· Charmazing Let’s Get Started – Creativity starts here with this set that comes in 5 different collections, enabling designers to personalize their bracelets according to these themes: Wildlife, Seaside, Lucky, Heart, and Emoji. $6.99

· Charmazing Color Me Up! – There is a rainbow of customizable options from 3 inspiring themed collections: Seaside, Seasons and Heart. Each features 6 charms, energy cards and beads. $14.99

· Charmazing Deluxe Kit – This complete set comes in both Karma and Nature World themes, enabling tweens to design 6 unique bracelets. Also included is the Charmastation bracelet working station, thread, beads, and chains. $29.99
Emma received one of the Charmazing All Wrapped Up! sets.  Hers was the Seasons Collection which included six charms and cards - Butterfly, Tulip, Tree of Life Spring, Tree of Life Summer, Tree, and Bird.  Instructions are included and are fairly easy to follow.  Using the beads, charms and thread Emma created three bracelets to her liking.  She wears them frequently and can't wait to add to her Charmazing collection. 
Although a tween doesn't necessarily have to, she can download the exclusive Charmazing app on her smartphone and use it to scan the charms to create a collection.  The more you scan, the bigger the points you receive towards becoming a Charmaster.  There's also the option to add friends and see what their charm rankings are.
Charmazing, to me, is a cross between craft kits, popular trading card games, and social media diversions.  Although Charmazing doesn't require downloading the app and playing it, I think it enhances the whole experience.  Charmazing is only available at Toys 'R Us.  There's not one in my area but I plan on adding to Emma's collection by purchasing them online.
I received product for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
