500 Fabulous Foam Conversation Heart Bead Assortment
Exactly what I expected
I wish I would have ordered more. They are exactly what I wanted and needed. I put them into a jar and my older son thought they were real...they do look just like the candy. I use them for display.

Great Valentine Project
We purchased the foam heart beads for a Valentine project at our church. We were very happy with how our bracelets turned out.

I wasn't even going to comment, but I got an email encouraging me to do so. The hearts were of a very poor quality. The messages are frequently faded or blurry in appearence and often they are not centered on the heart. As these were purchased to make earrings for resale, it is really sort of a problem. I'll probably wind up giving most of them to the children for crafting projects as they are not good enough to use to make salable items.

I bought this item for my students to be able to sort. They could sort by size, color, and/or wording. The problem with this is that the foam beads are so super static clingy. I could hardly get them off my hands, let alone into the correct container for sorting.

Great project starter!
These were great! I bought them to put inside bottle caps necklaces and they worked great. My kids loved to play with them and I'm sure they will be used again and again!

Great foam beads easy to string
These were great and very easy to string. The kids had a blast making necklaces. Just be sure you have a stiff enough cording to go through the bigger beads or they may get frustrated. Otherwise, easy easy! And they look great too!

Great to string for necklaces
Used these for a kindergarten Valentine's Day classroom party. I used Rexlace plastic cording, which was small and flat enough to readily fit through the small holes in the beads and strong enough to support the beads. I sized them to easily fit over a head so there were no sizing issues at the party. Each child got a baggie with 15 hearts and a pre-knotted cord with one heart threaded as an example; they didn't need any help until it was time to tie the final knot. Two of the boys in the third grade class asked if they could have my necklace, so these seem to appeal to older kids as well. Couldn't figure out how to size them for a wrist using the Rexlace (does not have much stretch). The pink ones are hard to read (red writing on pink), but otherwise very happy with this product.

Love these hearts!
These are really great. If you are even considering, go ahead and buy them. They are really bright and colorful. So happy with the quantity and variety of sizes and colors. They were the favorite of all of the craft supplies. I was concerned that they were foam shapes/beads and not stickers, but some kids wanted to use these to make bracelets or necklaces and some used glue to attach them to Valentines. Great product!

A Hit for Preschoolers
These were easy to use and great Preschoolers 4 or older. The little kids will try to eat them ( my 3 year old and his 2 year old friend tried to put them in their mouths immediately).
