Pros: Bright and beautiful fluorescent colors, versatile, great for kids and adults

Cons: Imported

Summary: These bold neon colors work well alone or in combination with other beads to make a variety of beautiful craft projects of all kinds.

I have always enjoyed crafting, and keep a large variety of craft supplies on hand for all sorts of craft projects. I work on a lot of projects alone, and also enjoy spending time working on them with the kids. Among my craft supplies are a large assortment of beads of all shapes, sizes and colors. The Darice Neon Multi-Colored Pony Beads are one that we work with a lot for a variety of projects.

As the name implies, these beads come in a variety of neon colors including pink, green, yellow, blue, and orange so you can make your projects using an assortment of color combinations for your craft projects. The bright colors have made some beautiful and eye-catching projects.

These beads measure 9mm by 6mm so they are large enough for small hands to work with. The kids enjoy stringing these beads together to make jewelry such as necklaces and bracelets. In addition to jewelry projects, we have used these for a variety of other purposes including candle holders, clothing accents, hair decorations, ornaments, and a bead curtain. This is a very versatile bead that is great for children as well as adults.

This package of pony beads contains 720 beads, which is enough for several projects, although these are also available in larger bags as well. This size is perfect for many users, however I would suggest buying the larger bags for classroom use or for those who plan on making many craft projects with this particular bead. I bought several bags with different color combinations (sold separately) for even more variety than what if offered in this single bag.

These beads are recommended for adults and children 6 years old and over. These are not recommended for children under the age of 3, and you should use caution when beading around young children as these can be a choking hazard.

I recommend these beads for anyone who loves crafting. These are great for kids as well as adults, and look beautiful for a variety of projects. The only thing that could make these better is if they were made in the USA. Still they are a good quality bead and one of the most versatile beads I have in my collection.
