LESS THAN PERFECT: Mega Pony Beads
Don't know why I didn't notice only 500 beads when the other bags had 2000 for the same price!!

Too few and small of beads
These beads are named "Mega" and say "Mega sized fun" in the description, which led me to believe they would be larger than all the other neon, metallic, opaque, etc. pony beads, but they're not. They turned out to be actually narrower than the metallic pony beads I got and were the same price for half the amount as the metallics. I wanted larger pony beads so preschoolers could make projects, too. On the plus side, Oriental Trading definitely took care of my gripe immediately and with no pushback.

NOT 2000, but 500 beads!
I have picked out these beads for the colors, shape and the quantity stated in the item description - 2000 pc, however what I received is a package of 500! This is 1/4th of what is stated in the item description!
The beads themselves are terrific: they are smooth, bright and shiny, and are not thin - prefect for what I need them for. I'm giving them full 5 stars for the quality but taking 2 away for MUCH lower quantity received vs advertised.
(I hope everyone can see the label on the picture: Item# 48/9835; PO# 811701; Maker Code: NXA; Mfg. Date:0511; Qty: 1 UNIT (500PCS) Made in China)
