If there is one thing, I am more than happy to explore with Olivia in arts and creativity world that is pottery. Getting hands on clay, time; dedication and extra mile efforts to create a beautiful piece is way beyond incredible.
I was so thrilled when I was asked to review the Pottery Cool from Spin Master. This 4 C (LR14) (1.5 V) alkaline battery operated little machine is the cool piece of kit. It includes some basic materials and tools that you need in making your first couple of pottery projects.
In the box
- 4 clay disks
- round and cone sleeves
- round and cone core
- tool holder/template pattern
- spray bottle
- pottery cool base
- coring and sculpting tools
- instruction guide for making your pottery projects
The guide is for you to make your first pottery projects like; jewellery holder, smart phone speaker, cupcake pencil holder, puppy picture holder and turtle dish.
This Pottery Cool studio is for six years old and above. Olivia is only five, but I did not give it to her to play on her own, we played and doing it as family as her daddy was helping us too.
Olivia wanted to do the jewellery holder, turtle dish and a jug. As you can our turtle dish has a crack while others are not as smooth, it’s a learning process and we’re still very proud of our first projects. Olivia did a lot or work for it too.
What I think
You don’t expect it to make a proper big pottery project as it’s only a toy. It’s the experience and process that draws me in. Olivia and I loves anything arts and creativity and this one is right up our street. The feeling of making your hands messy on the clay and make something unique, something you mould and create is just amazing. Olivia loves it that much that she asked not to go to school so we can do more and paint her pottery projects, but of course she has to wait till she gets home from school.
I am more than happy to say not to give this a miss for Christmas time, I am sure someone will be happy to see this under the Christmas tree. Pottery Cool Studio is very popular at the moment and it is mostly sold out in other shops, if you’re quick enough, Tesco Direct has them.
