Summary: Our daughter received the Cupcakes and Cartwheels - Ribbons Quick Change Watch for Christmas. It is cute, but we found ourselves pondering how it is to be fastened to our child. At first we thought it was to be tied around her little wrist, but the ribbons are very long and untie easily. Do we knot the ribbon and then trim it? Or is the watch to be used in some other fashion. No clue for the item did not come with instructions, photos or images.
Summary: I bought this for a friends 10 year old daughter and our 2 nieces for Christmas. It's a lovely gift, in a pink box, with ribbon, the watch face is nice and seemed good quality and all the ribbons were thick and seemed good quality too. A brilliant gift for the price.
Summary: My daughter received this watch as a gift and we ordered the same watch as a gift for her cousin, since we liked it so much. The watch itself is a fairly good quality, and the ribbons give you an opportunity to play with to match any outfit. it is difficult to manage a good bow on your own wrist by yourself -- that is the only drawback.
Summary: Bought this for my 9 year old niece. Thought it was a bit different. Its v cute. The watch face itself is v good quality and so once the fad is over with the different ribbons you could actually get a leather strap put on it
Summary: A very pretty and unusual watch. Each time I wear it (which is very often) people comment on how original it is. It is a little tricky to tie the ribbons securely onto your wrist yourself but it can be done with some effort. The ribbons used as straps are quite bold, bright and jazzy and as such may be difficult to tone with outfits. However, as you can change these ribbon straps you are able to use any of your own ribbons to tone in with the outfit you are wearing.
Summary: This watch looks good on both adults and children. Until recently I had a Cupcakes and Cartwheels watch and the interchangable ribbon straps mean you can make the watch go well with any outfit. It is a very good quality watch and in all the time I had it I never had to change the battery. It's a lovely watch and I thoroughly recommend buying one. It's a great present to buy for a teenage girl too. The only drawback is that it isn't waterproof.
