About this item

Highlights

  • 30 brightly colored wooden beads in a variety of shapes
  • 2 colorful laces included
  • Comes in wooden storage case
  • A fun way to encourage fine motor skills, color recognition, and sorting and sequencing skills
  • Makes a great gift for preschoolers, ages 3 to 6, for hands-on, screen-free play

Description

The bright and bold Melissa & Doug Primary Lacing Beads set is a must-have for budding imaginations! It includes 30 hand-painted, durable wooden beads in six vibrant colors, and two extra-long laces for plenty of hands-on play. The set of beads features five distinct shapes all designed for little hands to grasp, and the laces are thin enough to allow the beads to slide easily. Stringing the beads provides opportunities for pretend play and learning. The activity helps to promote shape recognition, hand-eye coordination, fine-motor skills, cognitive and visual perception 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 or shape, identify them for the child, and repeat the activity until the child can identify all the colors and shapes independently. The lacing bead set makes a great gift for preschoolers and kids ages three and older.

This box does NOT come with a lid. Makes storing this item a bit impractical.

Amazing for toddlers! One think I disliked about it is some of the beads weren’t sanded down and my husband got a splinter from it. Be careful using it, otherwise it’s a great activity!

Works great for fine motor skills! It held my 2 year olds attention for a long time. It’s great for 1-2 years old. She did get frustrated for a minute left then came back and mastered it. Now we are working to learn patterns. Can teach colors, shapes, and patterns easily!

Not a fan of toys with a million pieces to begin with. There’s no storage option in the toy itself. The beads are much bigger than the string, so you can’t string them on without the beads falling off. Not a fan.

Rough Inside

Johanna H - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
Interiors of the beads were not sanded are therefore quite rough. this makes it hard to get the laces through and leads to a frustrated toddler. Other Melissa & Doug beads we own did not have this problem.

My son is using them right now in his dump trucks. I’m trying to encourage him and show him how to lace the beads. Overall, good purchase because he needs/will to learn how to use them.

It's just okay. I think my 2 year old preggers smaller beads because the big beads are heavy and fall right off the string

My 3-year old granddaughter really enjoys this product. It is well-made and colorful; great for improving fine motor skills. It would be perfect if the 2 ties came with a little knot in the bottom so that the beads didn't fall out everytime she holds her new creation up. But otherwise, a really nice product.

I bought these for my 2yo daughter last year. Everyone in the family has worn a necklace at some point & as well as threading we've played colours/patterns/building towers. Really great quality toy that we will be passing on to my nephew eventually.
