Awesome Alphabet Cube Beads
Kid's Loved These
We used these beads at two craft stations for kids at company picnics. They were popular with kids and adults as well. The only problem is more vowels are needed. Most kids wanted to spell their names and we ran out of vowels.

Bought for Daughter
I bought these for my 9yr old who is just getting into making beaded jewelry... She Loves them and has made quite a few necklaces and bracelets for friends and family members

I have used these beads for several yrs. They are great for making a necklace of the complete alphabet for my kindergarten students as they learn the letters. I add in a 6mm faceted bead between each letter on a stretchy cord. many sets at craft stores do not contain enough letters to make create projects with the complete alphabet. you can make 9-10 necklaces per bag. Great deal for the price especially when you buy 3 or more.

Not enough options
I bought these to make bracelets for my daughters sleepover party. They're really pretty, but all each letter only comes in two colors, so it's a little difficult to make a color coordinated bracelet.

These leak their color onto your skin.

NOT AS SHOWN
I bought these to go on the little pony bead bracelets and the holes are too small. I could not find any info that stated the hole size so I made the mistake of assuming they would fit. The holes are really quite small. It would be nice if you could state what beads fit on what type of cord, bracelets or necklaces.

I bought this for my girl scouts to make necklaces with. Almost half of the beads are barely readable. They are cute and will serve their purpose though.

Great deal on alphabet beads!
I'm very happy with these beads! We used these for projects in a day-camp sessions to encourage my nieces' reading skills. I did find a few that were hard to read due to light imprinting, but usually you just had to turn the cube to see the letter more clearly. Most were very good with the exception of the yellow beads--when light shines through them the white lettering is hard to see. I think in any bag of beads you can expect a few that are less than perfect, especially at this price....
Stringing entire sentences (with the help of some old spacer beads I had) did use up all the E's, so I had to paint the F's with a white paint marker. But we probably used more E's than most people would. There are still plenty of beads left, so we will make some bracelets out of them (I'm letting them choose from 2-word phrases with no E's!). Overall, extremely pleased with these!

Good value and quality
I've bought and sold beads for 20 years. Plastic was not my specialty, but these beads are a good value for the money, especially for the average retail customer. They are also better quality than similar items you see in the big craft stores.
