Pros: Medium size works well for children or adults, beginners or experienced beaders. Nice color variety.
Cons: A few beads had rough edges. Can be choking hazard for young children.
Summary: These beads work well for children or adults, beginners or more experienced crafters. They are lightweight yet sturdy with bright colors.
Quite often while I am working on one of my latest jewelry projects, I need something to keep little hands busy. Since they enjoy making their own projects, I like to keep a supply of beads handy for them to use for their own crafts. One of the beads that they enjoy working with is the Express 500 Piece Wooden Barrel Bead Assortment.
For around $8 you can pick up a 500 piece assortment of these wooden beads featuring a nice variety of bright colors that the kids will love. These medium sized beads measure 3/8 inches long by 1/4 inch wide, with a hole size of 1/16 inch. These work great for stringing on yard or a thicker cord, and the kids love stringing them to make their own jewelry or other craft projects.
The beads are lightweight, yet sturdy enough to hold up to most anything they have used them for. They have created some beautiful necklaces and bracelets from them, and I must admit that I have used these in a few projects myself.
These are nice beads for beginners as well as more experienced beaders. The bright colors work well for a variety of projects, and the kids really enjoyed working with them.
