PRODUCT: Character Options Orbeez Soothing Spa (www.character-online.com )Character Orbeez Soothing Spa

DESCRIPTION: A soothing foot and nail spa for children which uses mini wet coloured Orbeez balls. Includes waterfall feature, removable hand trays, ambient lighting and perfume. Contains 1 x soothing spa, 2 x bags of 750 Orbeez, 1 x 10ml perfume bottle, 2 x resealable polybags and instructions. Requires 2 x 'C' batteries (not included). Suitable for children aged 5 years upwards.

ASSEMBLY: The Orbeez Soothing Spa requires assembly prior to use, as outlined in the easy-to-follow diagrammed instructions sheets - both a quick assembly guide (diagrams only) and a more detailed assembly guide are included. The round wheel panel is attached to the foot tub, and the purple hood fitted over the top. A clear round panel is then attached to the front of the wheel, onto which the spout and two bowls can be secured. The wheel is motorised and requires batteries to be inserted into the back in order to enable it to rotate - a screwdriver will be required to remove and replace the battery compartment cover.

GOOD POINTS: The Orbeez Soothing Spa is an original, practical and vibrant foot spa which provides a fun way for children to relax and unwind after a busy day at the office.

Unlike traditional foot spas, this one requires no water at all, but rather uses innovative little Orbeez to create a sensual and soothing experience - soft, silky and squishy miniature balls of gel in an assortment of bright and attractive colours

Character Options Orbeez Soothing SpaAimed at girls, the spa itself consists of a fairly large plastic foot tub, complete with four rubber feet to prevent slipping or damage to floors, into which the Orbeez are poured - two packets containing 750 Orbeez each are included with the kit.

At the back of the tub is an upright motorised wheel (complete with on/off button) which has multiple ridges around the outside and rotates round at a fast steady pace. These ridges enable the wheel to pick up Orbeez from the tub and carry them round to the top of the wheel, at which point they flow down onto a spout and back into the spa, creating a waterfall of Orbeez which feels lovely on the feet! A red light which shines thought the wheel as it moves round adds a nice ambient touch.

The Soothing Spa also comes with a bottle of pleasant smelling perfume (specially formulated for use on children's skin) which can be added into the Orbeez to enhance the spa experience. There is even a special shelf on the front of the wheel in which to store the perfume bottle when not in use.

In addition, two removable bowls are included which attach to the wheel directly under the spout (in a slightly staggered fashion) to create a cascading Orbeez effect as each bowl fills up. Alternatively, these bowls can be detached and used as hand trays should your child wish to treat themselves to a mini manicure session!

The Orbeez can be kept fresh by running them through fresh clean water before and after use, and storing them in the resealable bags provided. Additional Orbeez are also available to purchase separately.

In our opinion, the Orbeez Soothing Spa is a cleverly designed product that is perfect for girls of all ages to pamper themselves and their friends...safe, fun and most definitely addictive!

BAD POINTS: No batteries are included and must be purchased separately. Some of the balls quickly turn to mush, and easily get scattered around the floor. The machine is also quite noisy.

PRICE: £29.99 for whole kit; £7 for 2 x 750 Orbeez; £4 for 10ml perfume bottle.
