Rated 4 out of 5Â by AdaNana Beadwork project success
My 4 year old granddaughter works happily with the beads. The shapes and colors are appealing. The quantity of letter beads encourages multiple projects. Because there is not a lid to contain the beads, I provided a plastic storage box that the 4 year old can open and close herself. The lid of that box becomes a "tray" onto which the desired beads can be laid out before stringing them onto a lace. It'd be nice to have some lower case letters in addition to the upper case letters. If one could purchase refill beads, especially the letters, I'd buy such a package!
Rated 3 out of 5Â by Larissa Having no lid is very frustrating!
I have the same complaint about many M & D products that there is no lid which for parents of young children just isn't practical and can be very frustrating having to pick up all the pieces when just trying to pull out the toy to play with it as there is no way to keep them intact! I actually emailed the owners and hopefully others will do the same so they can reevaluate how they design their products.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by aprilcudd Where's the cover?
I love the Melissa and Doug products and have quite a few of them for my 4yr old. My only complaint about any of them (and especially the beading sets or stamp sets) is that there isn't a cover for the box. They come in these great wooden boxes, but there is no way to close them back up for storage.

This wooden stringing beads set is not only adorable but functional. I ordered this online and was even more pleased when it arrived. It is truly tasteful, unlike other plastic bead sets. If you are considering a beading set then this is the one to get!
