Details

Thirty wooden beads in six vibrant colors and five distinct shapes combine with two extra-long laces to kick off many creative activities. Stringing the easily grasped beads promotes hand-eye coordination as well as fine motor, cognitive, and visual perception skills.

This Melissa & Doug beads and laces set allows adults and children to explore multiple playing activities. Parents can ask their child to sort the beads by color, identify each color of bead for the child, and repeat the activity until the child can identify all of the colors independently. Parents can also encourage kids to develop counting skills by asking their child to count the number of beads in each color along with them, repeating the activity until the child has mastered counting one group of beads. The Primary Lacing Beads set makes an exceptional gift for kids from 3 to 5 years. Add the Melissa & Doug Lace & Trace activity set to round out the hands-on play experience and give kids another engaging option for screen-free fun.

For more than 30 years, Melissa & Doug has created beautifully designed imagination- and creativity-sparking products that NBC News calls ?the gold standard in early childhood play.? We design every toy to the highest quality standards, and to nurture minds and hearts. If your child is not inspired, give us a call and we?ll make it right. Our phone number is on every product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended to encourage fine motor skills Our two year old loves making necklaces and identifying the colors of the beads; was a little hard at first to put the beads on the string but he is now a pro and doing the activity independently with great success!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but not great There are 2 reasons why I don't give these a 5 star review. 1 - there is no lid to the box and 2 - the inside of the beads are not smooth so they get stuck to the laces. Otherwise this is a very nice set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes, I have given several as gifts. These beads are a great way for a child to learn colors, shapes and coordination when stringing them. I make a string of beads and then they copy it and make a string that matches it on the other string.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Colorful fun! This set is ideal for a child who is ready to sit and learn to string beads. The strings should have stoppers at one end- as this would encourage independent play. Otherwise, it's bright and well made.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I wish M&D tried harder. Poor craftsmanship. Unfinished edges and rough interior. Should have better standards and QA. Shapes won't even slide down string because the get caught. Hope they don't splinter or scratch my child.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Heirloom My toddler loves stringing these beads: she loves stringing the brilliant colors into "necklaces," keeping her busy with an interactive activity. Who needs a computer with this classic toy?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big colorful beads to string Our 2 1/2 year old loved these and caught on quickly how to string them. (We tied a bead to the end to get her started.) The colors are wonderfully strong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Fine Motor Skills The children I see in my practice find lots of uses for these beads and love making "necklaces" or "trains". Great for value, workmanship and finishes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would suggest this product for others to purchase. Gave this as a birthday gift to my niece. She has not quite old enough to use it yet, but I think it will be a great educational tool for her.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product; improve packaging Great product. My only complaint is that the tray needs a lid or these need to come in a box.
