Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Chellelynn Difficult to thread!!!!
The thread frayed really easy and it was very difficult to thread the beads...even adults had problems with this craft do not waste your money!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DrKate2013 Nice picture....poor product!
I was very disappointed in this product! The cord ends kept fraying and we had to use nail polish to get the beads on. Other than that, the kids loved it!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MinneTexan mixed feelings
the string frayed a lot and the beads were hard to put on the string for our 4th/5th graders. the connector would not stay on and was hard to open (i had to use my teeth). the quality of the beads themselves and the medallion were good. The kids liked the idea of it, but most could not do it themselves.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by catholicchristian This was awful
I have been purchasing crafts for our church VBS for the past 11 years. This is the first time I have been totally disappointed. The craft was extremely hard to put together. The cord kept fraying and the kids had to use toothpicks to get the beads threaded on the cord. Most finally gave up and we sent the craft home to the parents in a baggie. Some kids kept cutting the cord to get the beads threaded and ended up with keychains. VERY DISAPPOINTING!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by brenvbs Not for VBS
It's unfortunate, but the strings fray very quickly, and I have been unable to find a needle that is easily threaded with the string that will fit through the beads. I have to return all the kits I bought for VBS. If I can't do it properly, there's no way my teens will be able to. Sorry. It looks cool.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Crikett For older kids
This makes a nice necklace, but it is meant for older kids. On the package it says not for children under 14. The holes on the beads are VERY small and the cord frays as it goes through them. The holes are not big enough to fold the cord over to pass it through. Also, a single knot will just pop through the clasp, so had to double knot, using more string and making the necklace really short.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by churcheducator Youth loved it
These were great quality, and looked great. The string was a little short for the heads of our adults, but the shield was great. Boys at our church event used it without the beads and liked it as well as the girls who chose to use the beads.
