So, Pottery Cool does basically what it says on the box – it is a cool new way for kids to have a go at clay crafting at home. Let me give you the low down on the product first. So, it comes in a very bright pink and purple box with some girls on the box doing pottery. I’d like to say that I think the packaging is a bit off because this is a very gender neutral toy that I know my nephew would absolutely love (and in fact I am giving him one of these for Christmas) but the packaging does suggest that this is a girls toy and is aimed at them.
The kit comes with your very own potters wheel/stand, a water spray bottle, carving and other tools, ten different paints and enough clay for 6 different projects is what they estimate and it looks about right. As a side note, you can buy extra clay and “projects” separately to add to the kit.
The clay comes in little discs and actually dries in the open air which is great with kids because it means they aren’t making dangerous attempts to use the oven when we aren’t looking all because they wanted to finish their pots! I love that they have even thought to include a water bottle at obviously you need to keep the clay moist. There are also instructions and steps to follow for each little project including making their own phone holder – how cool is that!
