What is Klutz?
According to their website, "Kluz was incorporated in 1977 in Palo Alto, California by three friends from Stanford University. They began by selling sidewalk juggling lessons along with a trio of no-bounce bean bags. A week's effort earned the group $35. 'It was then we realized the sky was the limit'."
"The first 3,000 books were distributed by bicycle and backpack, and sales grew from there. Today, how-to books from Klutz come packaged with the tools of their trade (from juggling cubes to face paints to yo-yos) and are designed for doing, not just reading. The appeal of this hands-on approach is borne out by sales figures; Klutz is a fixture on U.S. book and toy bestseller lists and is available in over 24 countries around the world."
I am a huge kid at heart so I was very excited to have the opportunity to review Klutz! After much deliberation I chose 4 books - Brilliant Bead Rings, Draw DC Universe, My Fabulous Look Book, and Making Mummies, Shrinking Heads, & Other Useful Skills. They arrived within just a few days and Ashton immediately wanted to start drawing his favorite DC Universe characters and "shrinking heads"! We had a blast with all of the fun activities and I have to admit, after a long stressful day, sketching out some fashions (even if I'm not that great at it) or putting together some beaded rings is a wonderful way to relax and unwind! After checking out their website, I'm excited to try out other Klutz how-to activity books such as their Face Painting, Bead Loom Bracelets, and many others! I highly recommend these to anyone with a child (or anyone that's a child at heart) that loves hands-on activites! Prices vary between $16.95 to $24.95 and each book comes with easy step by step instructions and all of the supplies you will need for your fun activity! Don't worry! You can always purchase extra supplies on the Klutz website, if you run out!
