This kit lets kids mix their own natural henna paste and practice the art of “mehndi” (the Indian word for henna body painting). It comes with pre-measured henna solution and henna powder, which are mixed together in a special included cone-shaped plastic bag.  The bag is held together between the palms and the mixture is massaged until smooth, then funneled into a soft-squeeze plastic bottle, which is fitted with an applicator top. Kids who want to trace out elaborate designs can do so using a page of reusable stencils that are applied to the skin with the aid of eucalyptus oil, which is also included.  Easy to use, and helps teach kids how to draw!
—  “[Henna kits] have been a consistent seller from the time we opened [April 2007],” Owner Molly McMullin of Twirl Toystore & Playspace in Taos, N.M., told TDmonthly in early 2009. “They’re another great teen gift, and a fun project to do with kids who think they’re too cool for projects.”

TDmonthly Review:

What is it?
This kit lets kids mix their own squeeze bottle of natural henna and practice the art of ?mehndi? (the Indian word for henna body painting). It comes with a henna solution and a henna powder that have to be mixed in a special included plastic cone, massaged, then funneled into the squeeze bottle, which is fitted with an applicator top. Kids who want to trace out elaborate designs can do so using a page of reusable stencils that are applied to the skin with the aid of eucalyptus oil, which is also included.


What We Thought
The instructions, though long, were easy to follow. Impatient kids might have trouble with the ?wait 2 hours? after the henna solution and paste have been mixed together. Once ready, the formula squeezed easily through the applicator tip. It was easy and fun to draw freehand, especially since we knew that nothing would be permanent! It might be difficult to keep the paste on the hands or other much-used body parts for the entire 4 to 6 hours that the manufacturer recommends, but it adhered well to legs and ankles. The images were clear and lasted more than a week.

Why They?ll Want It
Even our boss wanted a tattoo. That says it all. But, in case it doesn?t, here?s the rest: the tattoos are easy and fun to apply. This would be a great activity for a slumber party. Girls will enjoy tattooing each other into their latest ?secret society.? Boys will like it, too, because who wouldn?t be cooler with a new ?tattoo?? The included stencils have images of a dragon, lizard and scorpion, as well as the gentler butterfly, sun and heart, among others.
