TIME FOR ANOTHER MADE IN CHINA EDUCATIONAL PRODUCT ASSESSMENT!

Gadget review: EasyΒ Knit Set (Paper Craft)

Though we prefer sourcing edu-toys from the UK and US, I get to see new gadgets regularly at my Nigerian suppliers, and most are straight from China to Nigeria. I say this because most Nigerian importers from China don’t care about quality products, most of the products you find in the markets here areΒ  very cheap quality that won’t last. It took me a while to get an importer from china who cared about the quality of her products. I now have about 3 good quality importers, and though the English instructions written on the edu-toys might not be perfect, the gadgets really do work.

One of such is this lovely Paper Weaving contraption, I feel in love with it at first sight. When I bought it, my first daughter was 8yrs old. She has an artistic streak just like her mom so it was an ideal Ramadan gift for her.

Throughout the month, she was hooked and I also had a go at it myself (couldn’t help it)!

Check out my attempt at using the set to make a cute & chic handbag with paper. (Below) Continue reading
