My son loves this!!!! I bought one for him but the beads were too small and there wasn’t enough space for him to get his hands in between to move the beads. This one is big and perfect for small hands.

Pam V - 2 years ago, Verified purchaser
I bought this for my just turned two year old grandson for Christmas, but my almost three year old grandson loved it the most. My daughter asked me to please get it for his (3 year old) birthday coming up. Classic toy that all kids love + teaches eye hand coordination and counting/ addition/ subtraction etc. Great basic toy for all ages.

Sturdy and interesting

5 out of 5 stars
NJH - 3 years ago
My 2 year old daughter loves it. We have a bunch of separate spaces in our house, so we setup different toys in different areas to give her a sense of variety. This way, if she wants to switch to a new toy, she has to get up and walk to a new area. Gives her a little exercise and keeps her interested in both old AND new toys. Anyway, this toy is nice and sturdy. The bottom is a weighty chunk of wood so it stays upright when she plays with it, rather than falling over. The wire-y parts are thick, so she can't bend them, yet. The beads are wide, too, so banging other toys against them hasn't broken anything. It isn't a fancy toy, but it seems to be well made and my daughter enjoys playing with it.

Watch for chipping paint and splintering wood

Thumbs down graphic, would not recommend
Brittany - 3 years ago, Verified purchaser
The toy arrived with damage on the wood base. I’m worried about it splintering. I wiped it down before giving it to my boys to play with and paint was coming off on my wipe. They chew on everything right now and this will most definitely come off in their mouths. I’m allowing them to play with it while I’m closely monitoring them because they seem very intrigued by it. I would not recommend or repurchase.

It is cute and a nice size for an almost one year old. Great quality and isn't huge so it fits in our toy bin when it's time to clean up.

I sent the Classic Toy Bead Maze to my grandson who is a year and eight months old for the holiday season.. My grandson finds real joy with the bright colors and movable beads that he can let perch or slide down by gravity.

Rough edges

Harpersmommy - 4 years ago
2 stars because my daughter liked playing with it. No stars because the finishing on the sides is horrible. I should of trusted the other reviews that stated this. Thought mine would be different. I was wrong. The finishing this bad and rough. The paint chipped the first day it was used. Returned it. My friend has the same one she bought last year and it’s way better. Melissa & Doug need to have better quality control. This must of been a bad batch that’s been going out for awhile. Buyer beware!

JourneyPeople - 6 years ago, Verified purchaser
Please refrain from this item. All 1-star reviews are spot on. Wood clips (red blue) are all over the play area within the first 2 hours of play. This toy is very important for a child’s development. I’m sure every child will love to play with it. But just this model is bad. The defect outweighs the utility of the toy. Working on returning it ASAP. I though that Melissa and Doug take these seriously. I see reviews from 9 months ago with same issue. How can they ignore such valued input from customers buying from reputable sites like Target.

3 times a grandma from nc - 7 years ago
I ordered this look online so I did not have the opportunity to really give it a good look. The price was lo enough but I felt that it did not have enough things to feel. It was a present for my granddaughter and she really likes "soft", touchable pages. You may be interested to buy it if you don't have other similar books, otherwise pass! Target did give me a refund.

Mama Bear - 7 years ago, Verified purchaser
Purchased this item, along with two other Melissa & Doug toys.This was by far my sons favorite, followed by the latches board and bead maze. My son likes remotes, locks, toilet paper, etc. Anything but his toys. That has changed with this purchase. So glad I took the chance. Extremely pleased. Great quality, hours of fun for my little one. Thanks M&D Great packaging right from their California location too.
