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 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.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by baillie Well made, but was expecting more beads in kit
This product and others came in a timely matter, its good Melissa & Doug quality, but I was surprised by how small the kit was. It wouldnt take much effort by one child mush less 2, to use up the beads in one beading session.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by MissTabithaAnn Large letters and great for kids
Not only can my daughter play with the beads and make bracelets, she can also learn to spell words with the letters. Love the set!
