Holiday Gift Guide: New Works of Ahhh by MasterPieces Inc. Review

**I received the products featured below free of charge in order to do an honest review. No other compensation was received. My thoughts are 100% my own and others may have a different opinion.**

My kids love puzzles and arts & crafts and those are some of my favorite things to give them as gifts. Today I would like to introduce  you to the Ahhh-Mazing Works of Ahhh® Craft Collection by MasterPieces Inc.

A variety of Works of Ahhh kits are available year-round, but their holiday items are most popular this time of year. Their latest additions to the Works of Ahhh 2016 Nutcracker Series include Candy Man, Mouse King, and Herald. 

We were sent the Candy Man Nutcracker and my kid’s were so excited! Each Works of Ahhh kit (MSRP $14.99 – $24.99) are for ages 4 and up and include everything you need to create a personalized work of art. Our Nutcracker set came with the wooden nutcracker made from real wood, paint brushes, gem stones, stickers, non-toxic acrylic paint, and fake “hair” for the nutcracker. We did need to use our own glue, but other than that everything came with the kit. 

Something fun about MasterPieces is that they offer an exclusive Works of Ahhh painting app (available for FREE from Google play or the Apple App Store. It allows you to plan your project by using 3-D views and visualization before the actual painting begins. It also provides a painting guide with tips and suggestions and advanced techniques. My 8 year old is the one we decided would paint our nutcracker and at first he tried out the app, but he got tired of it after awhile and decided that he got enough ideas from the app to begin painting. That’s a really fun concept though and I personally love that feature!

He really enjoyed painting and adding stickers and other accessories. In the end, he made an adorable Nutcracker that I will look forward to displaying every year. The Works of Ahhh are great for parties, school projects, or just fun at home.

In addition to the holiday themes, other Works of Ahhh kits include outdoor kits that come with vanish, boy themed kits that include metallic paints, and viable licensed Works of Ahhh versions for John Deere tractors, US Army tank and helicopter, and Caterpillar construction vehicles. All kids can enjoy the popular Works of Ahhh birdhouses, jewelry boxes, race cars, wind chimes, fairy garden and treasure chests, among others.
MasterPieces also offers a FREE contest for finished Works of Ahhh projects.
The rules are simple:
  • You must be between the ages of 4 and 13 to enter.
  • Use the Works of Ahhh… 3D Painting App to “Plan Your Project.”

    •     *If you don’t have access to download the app, that’s ok! You can still enter the contest.
  • Your painted entry must match your digital project.
  • You must use at least one of every accessory that is included in your kit (stickers, stencils, gems, etc.).
  • Provide a screen capture of your 3D project and a photograph of your newly finished painted craft kit.
  • Winners selected monthly
We also received a Tetris Brainteaser Cube which also really excited my 8 year old. He loves strategy games and Tetris is one of his favorites. There are different ways you can play with it and it’s a lot of fun. It’s great for individual play and would make a great gift or stocking stuffer this holiday season.
