500 Fabulous Foam Halloween Bead Assortment
Used this for 3rd graders to make necklaces, braclets, and backpack pulls. I was THRILLED to find these - I couldn't find ANY other cool beads, especially at this great price. And they are better than traditional beads for a party - they don't roll all over the place!

We ordered these beads, along with the Halloween pony beads and stretchy cording to have kindergartners make necklaces for a class party craft. All of the kids were able to thread the beads without issues. Some of beads were not punched out all the way or were off a little bit and were unusable. For the price, though they were fine. The kids had fun with them.

NICE BEADS for All Ages!
These beads are very nice and chunky and fairly easy for even 1st graders to use. There were a few beads that didn't have the "holes" all the way through but a very small percentage (probably about 5-6 in the whole pack). The only downfall was I was expecting them to be fairly evenly distributed between the different beads -- 100 per type of bead. The pack I received contained: 75 ghosts, 116 hats, 112 green monsters, 71 bats, and 114 pumpkins for a total of 478 beads. I had to order a second pack so I had enough for each child to get 1 of each bead.

I purchased this item last year and the quality really went down hill. The hole for threading the beads has gotten smaller and in many cases has closed up completely. The majority of them could not be used for threading.
Very disappointed in this product

These are as advertised. However, I agree w/PPs that less larger beads for the same price would be nicer. Also would be nice if they were printed on both sides. My 4 year old stopped making her necklace after only a few beads due to the printing issue.

Awesome on pipe-cleaners!
Bought these for my kids' school's fall festival to be strung on pipe-cleaners (also bought at OT) and they worked beautifully! I was worried the holes would be too small but they worked like a charm. And with the stiffness of the pipe-cleaner, they were easy for even the little ones to handle.

Pretty good buy!
I teach first grade and I put these in a free choice "Fall" center. My students really enjoyed getting to lace the beads to make a pattern on a necklace. This center helps reinforce correct patterns and my students love to share their pattern work. Beads are easy to use and good for first grade hands to work on fine motor skills!!
