I knew my daughter was going to be super pumped when I told her we would be reviewing the My Image Bracelet Maker from Choose Friendship Company. You may have seen this product before because it was featured on "The View". Any readers out there that are also "The View" fans?

This isn't our first experience with products from the Choose Friendship Company. Last year my daughter had the My Friendship Bracelet Maker on her Christmas Wish List and I bought it for her.
Here you can see the entire contents that include the tiles and glue and images to cut out as well as a tightening tool and elastic bands. There are 6 different colors to choose from that you can make a solid color bracelet or mix and match. Each bracelet will need 2 elastic bands, so you have enough elastic bands to make up to 9 bracelets. If my daughter primarily makes bracelets for herself and her friends, then I am sure she will be able to make 9, but if she makes them for adults she will need to use more tiles to make them bigger and not be able to make as many.
The kit is super easy to use. My daughter is 7 1/2 and could easily follow the directions and make the majority of the bracelet. The only part she asked for help with was tying the knots at the end and that was because she didn't want to not tie them tight enough and have her bracelet fall apart.
Product Description From The Choose Friendship Company
Fashion, social media, and technology collide with a fashion forward twist. My Image Bracelet Maker is a unique craft toy that gives children (and often parents and grandparents) the opportunity to create personalized photo bracelets. It comes with 6 preprinted image cards, including 144 pictures, an extra strength glue stick, 18 elastic threads, 54 image tiles in 6 bright colors, a knot key tool (to make seamless bracelets), and even has a refill kit with special glitter tiles available. To take it to the next level myphotosizer.com allows crafters to upload and use their very own photos. Better yet, a free iPhone/ipod touch app is available so that you can pull photos from your library or take a photo, crop, and resize right on the spot. These applications produce a 4x6 image card that can be easily printed from home or your local drugstore. My Image Bracelet Maker includes a built-in punch so that photos are perfectly (and safely) cut each time and can be used to make reversible bracelets. Long gone are the days of pulling out photos or scrolling through your phone, now you can show others what inspires you, who your best friends are, or your family album with the simple flick of the wrist.
To make the bracelet, just put the tiles in the designated area and run the elastic ties through the holes. It does push through pretty easily. The kit comes with several sheets of images and letters to cut out and glue on your tiles. The yellow area at the top has a square opening and that is the square punch to cut out the perfect sized images to fit in your tiles.This is easy enough to do that my 4 year old son was doing it as well. There is also the option to upload your pictures to a designated website and inserted in to a formatted picture and create your own images to have developed (or you could print) so that you have a personalized bracelet.
When my daughter and I were shopping at Claire's a couple weeks ago, I couldn't help but notice that they had these tile bracelets for sale there for $6-$7 each. With this kit, they can make 9 bracelets and hand pick out all the images that will be on the bracelet and it provides them with hours of entertainment!
