Good Price, OK Product
We used these as an activity at my daughter's "Animal Party" birthday party. The kids made necklaces with these and other plain beads. The foam beads are great and the price is low. But the quality is only ok (animal faces are kinda "blurry"). Also, you need thinner thread since the holes are smaller.

Very cute beads
Bought them for a party. Kids loved them. Made a nice necklaces.

The price was right but the holes to string these is very very small. I found that only the older children could manage this without being discouraged. However we glued them to other crafts and that worked but it was not what we were going for.

Many small beads
These are cute. There were a much larger number of the smallest beads than it appears in the ad picture. The large and medium beads worked fine, however, the holes on the smallest ones weren't all punched all the way through and were very hard for small hands to try to string.

beads too small
I expected that the beads would all be the same size and much larger. They are very small. I forsee the children having trouble stringing them.

Small - Not for young ones
Make sure your expectations are clear here. I thought these were to young for a kindergarten craft project. The beads are cute but small - and with foam they need to run larger than normal beads. Holding the foam can close the hole easily. I would prefer these as stickers to decorate a project than attempt a bracelet.

Description not very clear
A little dissappointed with the number of the smallest sized beads. The description, or the photo, does not make it clear that there are 3 sizes of each of the animals. The smallest beads are really too small for our needs, and there aren't enough of the medium & large sizes in the one pack for what we want....which means we need enough pack. Then we will have vast numbers of tiny animal beads without a use. Shame.

Cute beads! However a bit difficult for preschoolers as they're small. When you hold it too tightly in your hand, the foam squishes, closing the holes. For some it will be difficult, but for others it's the perfect beads for learning animals, fine motor coordination and more!
