We look at more than 10,000 new toys and children’s products every year, and our primary purpose is to help you make the best choices for the kids in your life.
Our goal is to give you the real story on what you’ll find when you bring a toy home. And we know that every kid and every family is different. That’s why we always say: “The hot toy is only hot if it’s hot for your child.”
Our editorial team has more than 100 years combined experience working in the toy industry. Our rating system ranks toys on 4 key criteria:
- Fun — Does it engage the child? Does it inspire imaginative play? Does it contribute to creative expression? Is it entertaining?
- Repeat Play OR Collectibility — Some toys are played with, some are collected. If we feel a toy is better suited for collectibility, we’ll rank it based on Collectibility instead of Repeat Play.
- Repeat Play — Will kids come back to it over time? Does the toy allow diverse imaginative play experiences? Does it provide longer-term play value?
- Collectibility — Some toys may have limited traditional play, but kids will treasure them as collectibles.
- Assembly/Instructions — Is the toy easy to assemble? Are the instructions clear?
Over the years we’ve learned a lot about what makes great toys and exciting play experiences. We want to help you create the best experiences for your kids and your family.
Ultimately, you’re the best judge of what you want to bring into your home — and what’s best for your kids. And because you’re an important part of the Time to Play family, we invite you to let us know if you ever find an error or have any ideas how we can better help you. After all, we exist for one reason: to help you have more fun!
What It Is
Orbeez are tiny, hard pellets that grow into soft and squishy colorful balls when you place them in water. There are several different ways to use Orbeez, one of which is the Perfume Magic kit. With this kit, kids can add scent to the Orbeez. The kit comes with two scents: strawberry and green apple. The first step is to fill the jar with water and pour in three to four packets of Orbeez. Close the lid and stir, then allow the Orbeez to grow for at least three to four hours or overnight. When the Orbeez are fully grown, drain the water into a sink, remove the lid, and pour five to six droplets of perfume into the jar. You can add a single fragrance or combine. Reattach the lid and stir to blend the perfume. Add more perfume if desired. The jar can be used as a room fragrance. Just leave the Orbeez in the jar and add more droplets of perfume for a stronger fragrance. You can also use the scented Orbeez as a body fragrance. Fill one of the two sachets with scented Orbeez and close. Then dab the sachet on your body to apply perfume. Perfume Magic comes with 1,500 Orbeez in five colors, two perfume bottles, two sachets, a perfume maker jar, and an activity booklet with instructions.
Why It’s Fun
This is a fun activity for girls who are interested in perfume. Girls will like the unique look and bright colors of the Orbeez and creating their own perfume.
Who It’s For
The Perfume Magic kit is for ages 5 and up.
What to Be Aware of
The colorful Orbeez may look like candy to younger children, so make sure to keep these out of reach of kids under 5.
The Perfume Magic kit may get a little messy because it uses water and the Orbeez are wet and slippery, so make sure you play in an area where it's okay to get wet.
Do not apply the scented Orbeez around the eyes and keep away from the lip area.
