Badge It Review

Badge It! returns by popular demand after calls from the craft loving public to reintroduce this much loved toy. Released in the UK in 2003, over 1/2 million makers were sold in the first year and Badge It! picked up the ‘Creative Toy of the Year’ award.

Now with craft making experiencing a surge in popularity Badge It! returns. The Badge It! maker has got quick, simple, no-mess badge making all buttoned up!  Make unique, high quality metal badges in seconds of your favourite pop star, footballer or pet.

The award winning design makes creativity simple as there’s no glue and no mess. You can use photos, pictures from magazines or your own drawings to make the badges you want.
So get creative, and wear your badge with pride!

My 8 year old niece was so excited when I gave this to her and wanted to make badges straight away. It is easy to do when you read the instructions. However the instructions are in very very small print !

The set came with some ready printed circular pictures for making badges which were in fun and funky designs.  Alternatively, there was a template that could be used to cut pictures from magazines.  I know my niece is going to enjoy enjoyed being able to use pictures she had found herself to make really unique pin badges!

The set only comes 15 pin badges so thankfully refill sets are available to buy separately. This would make the perfect party activity as It is  really fun, quick, not messy and easy to operate.

Badge It ideal birthday gift!
And the other thing I would like to see is this made in a more neutral colour for boys seeing as it  does have some very trndy kids on the box one of which is a young boy/teen!

(Disclosure I was sent this Badge It for review and all my opinions are my own )


  1. Very interesting and superb bagde it and will in demand.

  2. I love badge making, though I'm too old to have had my own, but we used to do it at guides with a HUGE old fashioned machine, far more complicated & dangerous than these look.
