Lots of little pieces, which is kind of messy and annoying, but that’s going to be a reality for any craft projects with a toddler. My 3 year old loves this kit, and she was able to figure it out easily on her own.
For the price you would think that they would have a better away to hold the beads in so they don’t spill every were. Otherwise they are ok also the necklaces don’t stay on very well wish there was a better way for the necklace to not just fall off and have to deal with a 3, 5, 6 year old girls crying cause they lose all the beads cause of it.
I got this as an activity for my niece and nephew and it was perfect! Their ages are 2 and 4 and It was small enough rhat they can thread their beads on their own and have fun and feel like they made something. The thread was made out of a stretchy silicone and has the same concept as a “break away color” so it will come apart if it gets caught.
