My 23 month old really enjoys playing with these, until she misplaces the beads.

I am very pleased with the quality of the wooden beads with the smooth wood finish, beautiful colors, and perfect size for little hands to grasp.

I like how thick the cord is, makes it easy for little hands to thread the beads.

These beads are fantastic quality, they are smooth, the paint is even and flawlessly applied and the colors and shapes are every bit as appealing as they look in photos - perhaps more so! They were larger than I had expected, despite knowing the measurements in advance. I was unsure when ordering if, despite the age recommendation (18 months+), these would actually be appropriate for a younger child. (They are right on the border, measurement-wise of being a choking hazard). However, being able to hold them and look at them more closely, they are really quite large, and intuitively seem safe that way.

In terms of the painted surface, I feel much safer with Holgate than I do with 99.9% of the toys out there these days. Holgate is a US company, and has been around forever. They have been making wooden toys for nearly a century. All of their wood, paints - everything - is US-sourced.

Bottom line - this is a Made in the USA toy, at a truly reasonable price, absolutely fantastic quality - and a classic skill-building tool that will be fun for toddlers and preschoolers alike. I would definitely put this in my top-ten must-have toys list. It's just that cool.

My son was a Micropreemie and has some developmental delay. He still has trouble with fine motor skills at three years old, and a small intention tremor is his dominant hand. One of our therapists recommended making cardboard cutouts and using a shoelace, but this toy is far superior because he can grip each bead in his whole hand and the bead doesn't slip off the cord right away. He calls it making jewelry! We can perform the task over and over with different combinations for what I would call an extended period of time. Its definately a favorite of his.

These beads are fantastic quality! They are made by the Holgate company in the USA -- I'm not sure why they don't mention that here, since it is such a strong selling point in childrens' toys. For now, I bought them for my 8 month old son to chew on. I strung them on the included rope and tied a knot at either end; he loves them! If I'd known about them, I definitely would have bought them for him much sooner because I think he would have enjoyed playing with them from as early as a few months old. As an added bonus, I'm sure he'll have fun lacing them when he's older. I love buying toys with "staying power"!

It is worth noting that the set I received does not match the picture shown here. I got one each of the red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple beads that are shown. I also received 4 slightly smaller beads. Two of them are round and two are oblong (a scaled down version of the yellow bead slown). Also, these 4 beads appear to be stained, while the rest of the beads are painted. [As I was writing this, it occurred to me that this seemed a little fishy, and I was worried that the seller might be breaking up sets of genuine Holgate beads and filling in with cheaper beads. I contacted the company and they confirmed that the actual beads in each package may vary and that mine were all fine. No bead scandal here.]

I knocked off one star since my beads don't match the photo. If they are going to include beads that are smaller, in not as interesting shapes and less vibrant colors, they should let you know. But, in all honesty, I'm still thrilled with this purchase.

This bead set is really nice. I like how thick the cord is, makes it easy for little hands to thread the beads. We tied a knot at one end so he could easily string them all on while walking around.

All of my beads came varnished and painted a variety of fun colors, there is one bead a little "harder" for little hands to thread because it is smaller, but I'm OK with that as it teaches variety and helps with dexterity. In regards to a complaint by one reviewer about the cord unraveling.... This is a woven nylon cord and it could easily be fixed by melting the end (hold it over a flame, when nylon starts to melt roll the end to create a nice threading end).

This was easily one of our more popular toys this Christmas (can't decide whether the sewing/lacing boards trumped this bead set). It is great for imaginative play, finger dexterity, teaching life skills, and getting kids interested I "sewing" as my son refers to it. The quality of this set is wonderful and I really appreciate the jumbo size of these beads as it will make it easier for me to keep track of them. Some bead sets I was looking at had a plethora of smaller sized beads, and quite frankly.... A toddler doesn't need that many to be thoroughly entertained.

Great product, no cons that I can see... Will be making a little travel bag to hold all the parts, once we have a little free time after the holidays.

These beads are nice and large and good for building dexterity in my toddler. I don't like one of the beads which is smaller than all the others but also unpainted and unvarnished. Ruins the look of the set and doesn't match the picture with two nice red spools (our set only had one). I think it's fine for colors to vary but not to include filler beads that don't match the look at all.
