This is great quality and very durable.
Angela G. Johnston
The strings are nice and thick, with long taped ends that help chubby fingers get the strings through the holes.

Great for hand eye coordination as well as fine motor skills.

I love this toy - and my 22-month-old twins do as well. I would just caution that the two smallest beads, while the size of very small plums, are still just small enough that they could get lodged in your toddler's mouth if they were inclined to try to get the whole thing in. I wouldn't trust my kids with this toy unsupervised for at least a few months yet (or will only let them play with the half of the beads that are substantially larger.

This item is great for a child 2 years and older. The item will challenge the 2+ and even an older child will have fun with the beads. The beads and strings are extremely durable and safe. It comes with two strings. Even when the beads are put in a childs mouth the paint or wood does not chip off of the product.

Bead threading sets are a valuable toy for young toddlers to practice fine motor skills, color recognition, and sorting and for older toddlers to work on sequencing. While this set provides a nice variety of colors and shapes, we found it to be unusably bad for threading.

Interior surfaces of the beads are rough and splintery, so they don't slide easily on the string. Wood grain is coarse and not able to be filed to improve the situation. We introduced this around 18 months. Through 20 months, my daughter found this set frustrating and difficult to manipulate. I thought this was because the skill was too advanced for her.

This weekend I finally gave in and purchased another set of higher quality beads with smooth holes that slide easily on the string, but are otherwise similar sizes and shapes. She was delighted to find that she could independently manage bead threading with the higher quality set. She now happily spends 15-20 minutes at a time concentrating on bead threading.

Also, after very little use, paint is chipping from the Melissa and Doug set.

This set is lower priced than most but we found it to be a poor value.

Purchased for my 2 year old.....we have not only used it as suggested but found many other ways to play with the beads. We roll them across the table to each other, separate them into color groups, shape groups, etc and we stack them.

This is a plain ol' great toy! First of all~no batteries required!!! I have childre from ages 8 to 3 playing with these and they all have their own way to make it fun. It really has helped with my 3 year old's small muscle coordination, and the 8 year old uses them as her "beautiful jewels. I would highly recommend these to anybody whose child may need a little help in their hand/eye coordination. They are made out of very durable wood and the strings are nice and long. The different shapes and colors are a great tool for teaching colors, shapes, and patterns. You won't go wrong with these! PLUS they are made in the U.S.A! Hooray! I love all of Melissa and Doug's toys.

Recommended for 3+ (because it does contain small parts), but in reality, it is far better-suited for 2+-yr-olds. It is way too easy for a 3-yr-old - my daughter finished lacing the beads in minutes, and then there wasn't much to do with the kit afterwards. The only other options are to sort beads by color (primary colors? again, way too easy for a 3-yr-old) or by shape (because they're 3-D, even I can't name half the shapes correctly).

Overall, a decent toy, but must be used much younger than the manufacturer's suggested age - under supervision, of course.

for a M and D product this was very disappointing. The wood pieces are nice from the outside, but the area within the hole of each piece is like particle board. When the string rubs against it, paint chips and small wood pieces fall out. if the interior where the hole is were coated like the exterior of the beads, it would have been the perfect learning tool for my little one. VERY DISAPPOINTED. Am looking for plastic version now.

The lacing beads can be used to improve sequencing skills, to promote recognition of colors and shapes and to increase fine motor coordination skills. Is an excellent investment for everyone!
