Thinking of getting dd1 a couple of djeco arts sets for Christmas. She is 7.

Are they worth the money?
Do your DC enjoy them?

Which sets do you have?

I would 100% recommend them. We've had the modelling kits for DS1 in the past. They're a little young for him now, but they were fantastic. We bought extra djeco modelling clay for them. We also have djeco stencils and they are fab.

I think lots of their things are quite girly, and pricey, but I like the variety and quality. Well presented too.

I've also bought a set of their brush felt pens for DS for his stocking. They were down to a fiver with free delivery on ebay.

IF she is sort to appreciate beautiful stuff...big fat YES.

Glitter boards, Anastasia window and princess stamp set, all beautiful, comes back to them throughout the year..shop around for them the only place where they are stupidly expensive is amazon, but google and look for best prices usually toy shops

She does like creating beautiful things. She really enjoys craft.

I didn't know know they did clay sets but have just googled it and found some superhero clay which would be perfect for dd2 so thanks for that.

Off to google the other sets mentioned ... and find a cheaper place to buy than Amazon. Thanks for that tip!

www.tickety-boo.co.uk is a great place to buy them, they usually deliver very quickly. There is a recent thread in arts and crafts
