Description

You can count on the Melissa & Doug Lacing Beads set to make a bold statement! The dramatic beads feature a variety of shapes, bold colors, and two extra-long laces, making stringing beads extra special. The shapes are designed for little hands to grasp, and the laces are thin enough to allow the beads to slide easily. Twenty-seven hand-painted wooden beads feature the numbers one to ten as numerals, and as countable dots to add counting fun to this lacing activity. It lets kids practice counting, shape recognition, hand-eye coordination, fine-motor skills, and creative expression. The set allows adults and children to explore multiple playing activities together. Parents or grown-up kids can ask the child to sort the beads by color, identify each color for the child, and repeat the activity until the child can identify all the colors independently. Parents can also encourage beginning counting skills by asking the child to count the number of beads of each color with them and repeat the activity until the child has mastered counting one group of beads. The set is an exceptional gift for kids ages three and older for hands-on, screen-free play.

Great fine motor toy for our new preschool. Nice colors and the holes are big enough for children to lace without getting frustrated.

This was supposed to be a birthday gift for my niece's 2 year old daughter, but her soon to be 4 year old brother took it over. He loved it. Apparently his daycare has this toy. I understand the birthday girl has since reclaimed it & loves it. It's perfect for little fingers & is very educational. It's a sturdy, bright & colorful toy too. We love you products.

Beautiful, my daughter loves them. I would suggest sending 4 strings instead of 2. The beautiful purple one already had an unfortunate encounter with a vacuum cleaner.

At first I wasn't sure my 18 month old boy would be interested in it. But we've broken down the threading into steps, like him putting the lace into the hole or letting him pull on the end once it's through and now he's really into it. It's great for fine motor practice and the numbers are an added benefit - he's starting to recognize a few of them and we tried stringing them up in the right order and orientation. You can tie a knot around one of the pieces to make a stopper on the end for easier linear stringing. I can imagine teaching patterns with this down the line. It is 3+ so we do this supervised but so far he hasn't tried to put it in his mouth or anything.

I was totally pleased with the wooden lacing beads. They are very colorful and I like the fact that they have numbers and different shapes. My grandson really enjoys playing with them. I just wish that you would get more than 2 laces.

Necklace

I use to take my daughter to Alligator Steps which is a mommy and me educational group and they had something similar to these, just less shapes and only solid colors. My 19 month old daughter loved them and now that we have them she will sit there for hours making necklaces! And also easy for on the go, I just put a few on the sting and throw them in the diaper bag!
