Blo Pens Rainbow and Colour Mazing Review & Giveaway

(ad - Gifted)

I had heard about Blo Pens for a while now, but never actually decided to give them a try. So when John Adams Toys asked me if I would like to review them I was super happy to give them a try. 

They also asked me to try out Colour Mazing at the same time, which we was more than happy to do. 

When the sets arrived the boxes were super inviting to want to get open and play with. They were really colourful and so looked really fun. We was sent the Rainbow set of the Blo Pens and the Garden Friends Set of the Colour Mazing. 

Blo Pens are recommended for age 4+ and Colour Mazing for 6+ but Lily is 5 and she did well and enjoyed the Colour Mazing Set. 



We asked the girls which they wanted to try first and they all decided to try Colour Mazing First. 

Inside the pack there are 6 different coloured pens. Green, Pink, Blue, Yellow, Red and Purple. These pens look super different and are like a tube of ink with a pen end on. It also comes with 3 sheets of push out things you can create. In total there are 6 different things to make. There are also some instructions to help you use the special pens. 



These really are so different and also quite magical. They are a complete new way of colouring in where you press the pen against the area you want to colour and gently squeeze the pen, the ink then spreads in that area but magically stops at the lines.

Some tips though to help do it neatly is to not squeeze too hard and also to put your pen in the middle of the area you want to colour. Too close to the line can make it cross over into the other areas. 

All girls really enjoyed this activity. Lily found it quite easy to do though didn't do it perfectly neat. That doesn't matter though because mostly she enjoyed doing it. In fact out of a lot of activities that I've ever set for the kids, this one they really took there time with and spent ages doing, A lot of activities end up half done, but not this one. 



You can also use 2 colours in one area and blend them together which makes a lovely pretty pattern. 

After they are all coloured in, you then pop them out to make lots of different things. Here is Lily with a butterfly that you can make. 



We then decided to try out the Blo Pens. In the rainbow pack it comes with 6 reusable stencils, 6 paper sheets and 6 mini blow pens. It also comes with a 3 in one blo pen sprayer which means you can blow 3 colours at once. The first thing you need to do it pop out all the pieces inside the stencil. There is a choice of sea horse, dragonfly, parrot, mermaid, peacock and unicorn. 



The pens are separate from the blower and come with a white lid on. You need to take the lid off and then place the pen into the blowers. Then line up your stencil on the paper and start to blow through the pen. You need to make sure the pen is pushed in properly otherwise it won't work. 

You do have to give a decent blow, and its great to remind the kids to take deep breathes and also breathe in between blowing (they do seem to forget they need to breathe haha)

But then a lovely colour with a airbrush effect comes out of the pen onto the paper. You also need to make sure you have pushed your stencil fully down onto the paper otherwise the ink spreads to under the stencil and the picture won't come out right.



When doing the 3 colours at once, you pop 3 of your choice into the 3 in 1 blower and blow to the area you want. This then create a rainbow effect onto your picture. 

After you have got colour in all the areas of the stencil, pull the stencil up and it will leave behind a lovely colourful picture. Lily Really enjoyed these and did 2 of them one after the other. 


After you are done with the Blo pens, the lids need to be returned back onto them and then store them in a cool dry place so then they don't dry up from heat or the sun. 

Other all the kids enjoyed both of these activities and spent a good amount of time doing them. Which is always a good thing when it comes to keeping the kids entertained. 

Even I as an adult enjoyed doing these. I love how creative the blow pens are and there's actually something therapeutic with the way the ink spreads on colour mazing. So you don't have to be a child to enjoy these activities. 

The Blo Pens Rainbow is £10.99 and the Colour Mazing Set is £16.99.
