Beaded Gingerbread Necklace Craft Kit
I bought this for my daughter's 6th birthday. The kids loved making these necklaces. The string was very easy to thread through the beads and didn't fray. I would definitely recommend this product.

Cute product but poor quality.
I bought these for my Kindergarten students to make as one of our activities centered around The Gingerbread Man. I really liked that the pieces were wood and the picture online and in the catalog is so cute. They were very easy for my students to put together. They only needed help tying them and putting on the clasp.
The problem I had with the product was the poor quality. The first pack I opened to put together a sample had one wooden bead that wasn't drilled all the way through and one of the bells was missing the loop to attach it to the necklace.
As I opened them to re-bag them for my students I noticed a lot of poor quality pieces, especially the gumdrops and gingerbread men. The paint would be peeling off or the wood was cracked or broken or the screws were out. Some of the paint on the gingerbread men was smeared looking. There were also many packs missing a piece or with a bell missing the ring to attach it.
I only needed 18 necklaces but it took all 24 packs I ordered to put together enough decent pieces to make these and that was using some pieces whose quality was still sub par.
The one part I will say was really good was the string. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of it. I just wish the other pieces had been as good since the product is really cute.

Bought them on sale after the Holidays. Can't wait to make them with the the kids next Christmas. A great product at a VERY resonable price.

Simple, Cute Craft
We did these at my son's 4 year old holiday party the kids loved them and they were simple enough for them to do.

Great quality, very easy to do!
I bought this activity for a kindergarten winter party. I was really suprised by the quality, even the ends of the cords are sealed so the beads go on really easy. The pieces are all wooden (with the exception of the bells of course). I would definitely buy these again.

Cute, easy craft
This is a great craft - easy to string beads and super cute. The kids loved it. The only bad thing was some kits were missing items (so order extra I guess) and the jingles and gumdrops would fall off their jump rings.

Love this Little Guy
This necklace craft is terrific for little hands. The string has sealed ends so there is no fraying and the directions are easy enough for little ones to follow. It is now one of this seasons favorites for me.
