about this item

Little ones develop dexterity with the award-winning Alex String-A-Farm Wooden Bead Set. This quality kids' toy includes 12 chunky wooden beads in fun farm shapes. Kids learn about animals and improve fine motor skills as they string these wooden beads onto the bright yellow cord using the attached wooden needle. The farm figures are sturdy enough to stand on their own, so kids can play with them as wooden toys when they're not on the string. A small silo prevents the beads from falling of the bottom of the cord. Recommended for ages 3 and up.
