The Hama Beads Cat and Dog Gift Set is the perfect activity set for children of all ages!

Children who simply adore their family pets will love getting creative with their very own pet-inspired bead art.

Using the small, hollow, melt-together beads, follow the cat and dog-shaped pegboards to create colourful kitties and pups!

Once you're happy with your pet design, fuse your beads together with a household iron to keep them forever.

Gift them to loved ones, or turn them into coasters and keyrings. The possibilities are endless!

Your set includes: 2,000 regular assorted midi beads, a dog pegboard, a cat pegboard, 4 midi bead supports, a colour printed design sheet for two different dogs and two different cats, ironing paper and instructions.

Intimidated by the ironing stage? Let us give you a few tips on how to do it.

  • Place your beads on the included pegboard. Once you're happy with your design, cover the beads with a sheet of ironing paper.
  • Pre-heat your iron to a medium/high setting (without adding water) as the steam will ruin the beads.
  • Keeping the iron level, press down on the beads by moving the iron in a circular motion for about 30 seconds.
  • Iron the edges of your design first to hold them together, but if some come loose, use tweezers to place them back on the pegs!
  • Once fused, pop a heavy book on your design to stop it from warping while it cools for a few minutes.
  • Then, gently remove the ironing paper, remove the beads from the pegboard and flip them over!
  • Using the same ironing paper where possible, repeat these steps with the other side of your design.
  • It does take practice, so if you don't succeed at first, try starting with a smaller design.

It's a wonderful way to help young children with their hand-eye coordination as they learn colour names, shapes and basic counting skills! 

Please note: Each bead is only 5mm wide, so can be difficult for young kids to handle, adult assistance is required. Join in the fun!

Recommended for ages 5 and up (or course, ironing should only be done by an adult).

Made in Denmark, Hama are the leading brand of melt-together beads in the world.
