Great amount of beads for the price.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by galacticObserver Good if you value quantity over quality.
I bought these a while ago--before they went on the Halloween sale--and I just couldn't wait till they would show up in the mail. When I received them, however, I was far from impressed.
The colors of the beads--especially the orange ones--are really faded and washed out, almost like someone left them out in the sun for a year or two.
On top of that, they're shaped kind of weird. They don't seem to be the standard pony bead roundness, because none of my projects seem to hold the same shape as they should when I use these beads.
I suppose I should have expected as much by buying such a cheap item. But then again, if I waited a few months, I could have gotten them even cheaper.
Overall, if you want a more attractive, bright, colorful set of beads, then don't waste your money on these. But if you're looking for a good bulk sized product to hold your crafty children over until you can find something nicer for them to use, this is for you.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CraftyChicka Good Value But Not Quite What I Expected
The beads were a great value! The colors were a little duller than I thought they'd be and several of them have a seam around them that can be a little rough if you are using them for jewelry. I was expecting them to be more like the pony beads found at craft stores, but these were slightly smaller and more flat on the sides. I probably should have checked the size comparison between these and the store bought ones but they looked the same in the picture so I didn't bother! These are good for kid crafts but like I said a little rough for jewelry if it's a snug fit. I bought them to use making Kandi cuffs and they work okay but can't really mix them with store bought ones because of the differences in them but overall a good value!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by naturelady14 Great Price for pony beads
Great value. Beads aren't the "usual" shaped beads but that's alright. Will make a nice Halloween beaded banner.
