If you're interested in making your own beaded jewelry or want try out bead crocheting, check out this review of the Make it Fun Bead Crocheting craft kit from International Playthings Inc.

If you like jewelry and cool accessories, there's nothing better than being able to work on your very own designs. That's why the Make it Fun Bead Crocheting kit looks so great. You get all the supplies to make your very own beaded bracelets, headbands and necklaces - plus instructions on how to put them together. Kidzworld has the 411 on this crafty kit by International Playthings.

Bead Crocheting Is Fun!

The bead-crocheting concept is super-cool. You loop various colors of elastic thread onto a loom and then slowly feed beads onto the thread as you go. Ideally, your beads should end up in a perfect row in the middle of a colored web that will be your bracelet. Unfortunately, with the Make it Fun Bead Crocheting kit, things don't always go your way.

When Bead Crocheting Goes Bad

The Make it Fun Bead Crocheting kit is a great idea... if it worked. Instead of lining up perfectly, the beads tend to bunch up and aren't able to fit through the tiny hole in your crochet loom. Also, because you are working with elastic thread, you constantly have to be pulling it as tight as it will go to get a proper stitch. This isn't the easiest task, cuz elastic has a tendency to bounce back on ya, and then you're back to square one. After trying both stitch options, the end result was a giant, knotty, beaded mess. Not something you'd wanna be seen wearing.

Bead Crocheting Bottom Line

While bead crocheting could be a ton of fun, this kit doesn't quite deliver fashion worthy goods. Maybe once a bigger loom is included in the pack it will be worth your time, but for now, try makin' your own fridge magnets or buttons - it'll be more rewarding.

Can't wait for the game, anyone else think it may be better than CoD and Battlefield? I was gonna give a PC Gamer link on the new "Operator System," it also gives links to the gameplay trailer and a really cool hands on, but then KW bot informed me that i can't (which is completely ridiculous and incredibly annoying).  If you wanna check it out go to the PC Gamer site, I think its still on their homepage.

I think they should be able to because everybody has there own style for example i like to play action games like Tanki & Call Of Duty and Call Of Duty Ghost they are not that into action but you know what i mean. This kid in my class in 3rd grade said games and and xbox are for only boys. i play tanki, sims 3,and expantion packs with the sims 3, Call Of Duty(Ghost), Minecraft and all sorts of diffeent games so post now on you opinion!
