Christmas Pop Beads
Beads are nice and big as stated
Beads were bought for my 2 grand daughter age 20 month and 36 months. They are had to put together and pull apart. The tips want to bend but they can't swallow the beads - at least I don't think

Christmas Pop Beads
These wouldn't pop into each other. Very hard plastic, too heavy & big. Bought for my granddaughter but it was too hard for her to use & she is 6. I could not get them to work. I wouldn't recommend these at all.

Not worth It!
I was extremely disappointed in this item. I wonder why I didn't read the reviews by other customers. It took me 30 minutes to put 7 beads together. CHEAP!

Worst Purchase Ever
I bought this item as Christmas stocking stuffers for my grandchildren. The beads were impossible to link because the holes in the beads were too small to put the male end of the bead into them. I couldn't do it much less my grandchildren.

Not worth it
@ $1.79, I would still have to say pass on these. They are almost impossible to get to snap together. My 6 year old got very frustrated trying.

Read the reviews before you buy these!
I bought these for my six-year old because I had pop-beads as a girl and loved them. I neglected to read the reviews and should have, because they are very accurate. While these are much bigger than the beads I had as a child, they don't work! I struggled for two minutes just to get my first one to hold, and by the time it held, the neck was about to break off because I had to use so much pressure. It became a mission to see how many I could put together. After 30 minutes of working, I had five beads semi-together, very sore fingers, a very poor attitude, and an unhappy child who didn't want to give up trying. There is absolutely no way my six-year-old could make them work unless she's Popeye.
The only positive thing I can say is that when I pulled them apart, they made the 'pop' sound that I remember from my chlldhood... of course I cringed when I pulled them apart because of all the work it too to get them together.

I was pleased to see they were bigger than I expected, but when I checked their functionality, I found they were useless. The plastic was so soft, that the end that was supposed to pop into the bottom of the other bead just bent. I got a refund.

they are hard to pop but stay togather well
I got these for the day care they are harder to pop together than I thought HOWEVER once they are together they stay well so there are no tears over broken creations also they seem to go together easier after the first couple of time

worst thing I have bought from Oriental trading
These are VERY hard to put together, no way most kids are going to be able to do it. I bought this for my daycare last year and they are still in the bag because no one could do them!

I thought these were a lot bigger. They are smaller than a walnut. I know they include the measurement but it looks so much bigger in the ad. That's the way it is with a lot of the stuff-but the price was right and they seem fun so I will give them to older kids instead of the toddlers I was going to give them to.
