Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CatholicPreKTeacher Missing a Mary Charm
I purchased two sets and each one had a missing Mary in one of the kits. Luckily I did not need all 24 kits, but I would have used them if I had the Mary piece. Some of the pieces had a bit too much paint on the face and it looked like it was missing the facial features. Other than these two things, this was perfect for what I needed. I didn't actually use this to make the bracelets, so I cannot say how they turn out. I only used the charms.

by JoliePetite1 poor quality
I have been purchasing craft & other items from Oriental Trading Co. for more years than I care to remember -- having been involved with public, Christian, and Sunday schools and VBS for 50 + years. Never before have I felt inclined to complain. Yet, this craft contains poor quality beads, in my opinion. In order to put the elastic through some of the beads, (while making the sample) I had to use the hole reamer. Therefore, I will have to check all (plastic) beads and ream before giving the kits to children to make. What an unnecessary waste of time! In the photos you will see that I used a few different beads (purchased at other times from OTC). The photos may not show you the difference, but it is there. The charms are the redeeming factor! They are small but detailed and colorful.
