Klutz produces wonderful books, and this one is among their best. While some of their books are clearly for children (based on the types of crafts produced and the simplicity of the projects), Beadlings offers kid and adult appeal. I am over 30 and had a great time making these with a nine-year-old friend (he made the baby tree frog). As usual, Klutz's instructions are crystal clear. Beadlings is more creative than many similar beading books because it uses bugle and wonder beads in addition to seed beads. The book also offers some great suggestions about what to DO with all the cute little critters you make. A suggestion that they don't make is to use the beadlings as earrings--just attach to a French hook (which can be bought in bulk very cheaply). While they give enought beads to make the projects, anyone who wants to keep going will need a fresh supply, and the specific beads they use are not necessarily easy to find in craft shops. Many internet sites offer the supplies at great prices. I have bought a lot of beads to get variety in the project colors.
This book is my favorite out of all craft books. It has easy-to-follow instructions, clear illustrations for every step, and all the beads and wire you need to make all 19 creatures including insects, people and some animals (such as skunks). I liked it so much I bought it with my own money, but it is a great gift for kids aged 9-12.
My 14-year old daughter asked me to buy her this after using it in an art lesson. It comes with a supply of beads enough to do 17 items. Then I ordered 2 more copies for her Girl Guide group.
The best book ever made about creating tiny beaded creatures. Unfortunately it is out of print and the only copy I could find did not come with the beads or tools. However, I was easily able to understand what I needed to purchase to create these adorable little guys. My only problem is that as soon as one is made, it flies out of my hands into the hands of an admirer. I just can't say no to anyone who appears to yearn for the little guys! It's a great way to spread love and joy into our deficient world!I wish that Klutz, the publisher would recreate this wondeful book once again.
I know the "Klutz" books and every single one of them is great! "Klutz"'s books have special things in them, and this book ("Beaslings"), has some special things in it and the way they explain how to do the stuff is graet. This is a good book for any kid that likes to do stuff with their hand and to be creative. After you're good in what to book offers, (Which is easy to come to, since it is so easy to learn from), you can create your own stuff, and this is a book that teaches kids how to do things, and to work with their hands and minds. This is a great book! Buy it!
I'm 19 and just bought this book for myself. I'm having a blast with it! The book is extremely well written. At first I didn't think I'd be able to do it, but the instructions are VERY clear as are the diagrams. Excellent book for all ages!
Purchased this for my daughter's 11th birthday. She has spent numerous hours making many different dreatures and creations (i.e. a seahorse, starfish, butterfly, lizard, bumble bee, etc). The book was easy to follow, great instructions and photos to support them. I would highly recommend purchasing this, infact may purchase a couple more for her friends and cousins for Christmas.
I bought this book because I had it as a kid, it was my intr to beading, and now i run markets and teach other kids crafts. I highly recommend this book for all ages, children and adults, the directions are easy to understand, and the projects are alot of fun for the whole family. Thank you seller :)
