Rated 5 out of 5Â by grandmaIN Great toy
Melissa and Doug have a great collection of toys that fall in the "traditional" line--things I remember my kids playing with and enjoying for hours. Lacing beads are a great way to improve hand/eye coordination and fine motor skills--teaching them to use those little fingers! My 2 year old granddaughter loved the bright colors on the beads and was able to make herself a necklace in no time. A toy she will play with again and again!

I purchased this for my 1 1/2 year old for Christmas. Both she & my 4 year old love to play with them! My 1 1/2 year old doesn't quite have the concept of stringing the beads yet, but she loves to play with them & match the shapes & patterns up. My only small complaint would be that it would be nice if there was a lid on the top, to keep all the little bead in the container when not in use.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by guest06 perfect for 2 year olds!
as a occupational therapist, these are perfect for those fine motor skills for 18mo-2 year olds to be working on! the fine elements of pinching and pulling, along with the large size beads (don't have to overly worry). perfect gift for any 18mo-2+ year olds ! i have several for my clients children to use in our therapy sessions.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Grandma A good toy for a three-year old
My grandson had alot of fun with this toy. Not only does he use the toy to try and lace the beads but also used the round shapes to build. I like buying Melissa and Doug products because I feel that not only does my grandson enjoy them, but they they are well built for little hands.
