    My daughter received this as a present at age three. She could have started using it at a much younger age. But even as a three-year-old we have gotten good use out of it. I have used it in our group homeschool preschool to work on cooperation and counting. We put the number beads in the middle and had the girls pass around the string and string on the numbers in counting order. Good to work on counting skills. And we certainly worked on taking turns, which was not easy for them! We even put a circular bead at the beginning and a tubular bead at the end and said it was a caterpillar! They loved it!

    I really like Melisa & Doug products, so I bought this one for my baby girl.....Great colors....nice big blocks that work for threading but also for stacking. The one problem I see with this is the box. If you are going to take the trouble to make a container to fit all the blocks and threads, than make it so it can be storage for them too. You spend the money on making a wooden box, but it has no lid....The game lasts little, pieces start to disappear. I wouldn't mind paying an extra dollar for a better container.

      Comments about Melissa & Doug Lacing Beads in a Box:

      Ordered two sets because my boys dont share very well. They love the variety of shapes and colors. Its a fantastic toy to bring to Dr. office waiting rooms, visiting relatives who don't have toys and just quiet play in the house. I love all of Melissa and Doug toys because they are stimulating, durable and simple for kids to figure out.

              Comments about Melissa & Doug Lacing Beads in a Box:

              Just purchased these for my son (3yrs), he really enjoyed playing with them. Fantastic activity that stimulates learning; colors, shapes, numbers and patterns. Also enourages use of motor skills; lacing the blocks/shapes on the string etc... We played with them together for almost 2hours, and the first thing he asked this morning is if we could play again. I've also incorporated left and right hand skills for him to apply when using these blocks. Ex: Hand me the blue star with your left hand; Can you hand me the red circle with the yellow polka dots with your right hand... It's a hit thus far!

                My grandchildren love to play with these, lacing, counting, naming colors etc. Would highly recommend but as with some of your other products (magnetic dolls - love them) it needs a lid for the box. Awesome toys!

                  Bought in 2005 for g'daughter, she used basically for creating necklaces. Grandson now enjoying the bead set - he likes to classify, separate, arrange, and stack the beads... and also uses them as vehicles on his 'city on the carpet'.

                        My grandson had alot of fun with this toy. Not only does he use the toy to try and lace the beads but also used the round shapes to build. I like buying Melissa and Doug products because I feel that not only does my grandson enjoy them, but they they are well built for little hands.
