Description

The Cool Maker KumiKreator is a breakthrough way to braid beautiful friendship bracelets before your eyes!

Drawing inspiration from the art of Japanese Kumi bracelets (Kumihimo in Japanese means “gathered threads”), the KumiKreator makes it easy to create stylish and intricate Kumi friendship bracelets. The KumiKreator DIY kit includes 88 spools of string and everything you need to make up to 10 unique bracelets!

Select one of the stylish bracelet patterns from the design booklet, or create your own pattern! Next, choose from 5 different colors of string, load the ready-to-use spools into the machine following your bracelet design and spin to create! As you turn the handle, the spools dance around the machine, magically weaving your bracelet together in minutes! When your bracelet is finished braiding, remove it from the machine and customize with a stylish clasp – no knots are needed!

Stack, wrap and share your bracelets with your BFF’s and mix and match to accessorize every outfit! Spin to create colorful friendship bracelets with the Cool Maker KumiKreator!

    Easy To use

    I got this for my 8 year old daughter. I showed her once how to use it and now she is on her own. Very easy to use, and she loves making bracelets for everyone. My only issue is, I can't find the refills anywhere and we are now out!

    Fun and easy to use

    My 7 year old daughter received this for Christmas and can easily make beautiful bracelets mostly on her own. They all turn out nearly perfect, as the maker is so simple to use. She loves all the patterns that come with the booklet.

    Cool Japanese bracelet maker

    This cool bracelet maker makes Japanese friendship bracelets. It comes with many different colors and 88 spools to make the bracelet. I received this as a free sample as long as I gave my review. It was a great toy.

    Great idea but missing parts

    My daughter was so excited to try the bracelet maker but after we opened it and got it all set up we realized it was missing the connector pieces that are supposed to hold together the finished bracelets so we were not able to use it. Didn’t find an option to purchase the connector pieces online

    Very Good

    I received the COOL MAKER KUMIKREATOR FRIENDSHIP BRACELET MAKER the other week. My daughter set it up and tried it out. It was working ok at first, then it started getting stuck. My daughter did some changes and got it working right again. It makes small sized bracelets but she was able to fit them on her wrist. We received it free to test from Family Rated. My daughter does love it.

    Hours of fun

    I was excited to receive the KumiKreator free in exchange for my unbiased review for my daughter. We started by reading the instructions and to see how to set up the device. It was very simple and we began making bracelets before you knew it. My daughter was able to make several different things and was happy to hand them out to her friends. She also had a sleepover and the other two girls loved the KumiKreator as well. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who has a child that loves to do arts and crafts

    Just became a tangled mess

    My daughter and I were so excited that we were given the opportunity to review this product for free. Well we recieved it, got it all set up even though the instructions were lacking and she made a cute bracelet. She tried several times to make another one but the strings kept getting jammed and were becoming a wasted mess. Tried to re thread it with new string and I gave it a try and it immediately jammed up again. So glad I didn't spend money on this. It was a no go for us. Maybe we just got a bad one out of the bunch. But from our experience I can't recommend this product to anyone.

    Great product!

    My daughter does not usually do too well with creating thread/knot bracelets. She made some amazing bracelets with this product. It helped keep the bracelet steady and eliminated the gapping that occurs from it twisting or the knots not being pulled tight enough on the kind of friendship bracelets I used to make. I love the variety of the thread included in the kit. The colors and quality of the bracelet are much better than the diy kind we have done. This would be a great gift for preteen girls!

    It's great but it has some flaws

    The KumiKreator is supposed to be one of the top toys of 2018 and the commercials had my 7yo hooked. As soon as she saw one she fell in love and asked on repeat if we could go get one. Well, we got one. She was so excited when we were taking it out of the box for the first time. We unboxed it together and went over the instructions together before we attempted to make a bracelet. It took her and I about 15 minutes together to get everything set up for the first bracelet. We got 1/4 of the way through, and it jammed. What do you do? KumiKreator’s YouTube channel said to completely undo what we set up for the first bracelet and then go through the ‘quick’ process of taking the spools out and putting them back in. We then re-set it all up and get 1/2 way through the second attempt of the first bracelet…and it jammed again. So now we have to completely re-do everything again. By the third failed attempt my 7yo is done. She’s disappointed and doesn’t even want to play with it anymore. She leaves the rooms, and I keep on trying to figure this machine out. I give up. I contact the company, and they send me a return shipping label so they can look at our bracelet maker. I was really impressed with the customer service overall. They kept in contact with me over email and then I received a phone call telling me that they were able to fix our bracelet maker and they will be sending it back to us with a Fashion Pack as well that will make up to 24 extra bracelets on top of the 10 that come with the original purchase. I went over all the issues on the phone with the customer representative, and they assured me all was well, and if I were to have any issues, please call, and they will fix everything right away. Well, the ‘fixed’ KumiKreator arrived in the mail with the replacement pack plus a completed bracelet for her. We took it out of the box, I set it up while she watched to cut down on time, and then she made her first bracelet, and IT WORKED right off the bat! My 7yo was beyond thrilled. We made a couple of bracelets with zero issues! So through all this, if you have a problem, please contact support before writing it off because when it works, it is actually pretty neat and very entertaining for the maker.

    Easy Peasy Friendship Bracelets!

    My daughter has been asking for a Kumi Creator ever since she saw it on TV, so when we were selected to receive a sample in exchange for our honest reviews, we were excited. For reference, my 9 year old daughter has been trying to make friendship bracelets the "old fashioned way" like I did growing up. Unfortunately she just can't do it despite trying various kits and ways to make them. Kumi creator takes all the guesswork out of making cute friendship bracelets.
    Once you load the colors you want in your bracelet into the Kumi Creator, you weave them together with the push of a button. These aren't your average friendship bracelets- you, your child, and the recipient of these bracelets will be wowed by the detail and the quality of the bracelets. With this kit, you can make about 10 bracelets, and the best part, you don't have to worry about making knots that are too big or too small! I would definitely buy this again and I'm hoping they have refills or we can somehow use other thread to create more bracelets.
