Square Mardi Gras Beads
Great length and quality!!
Compared to other beads these were such a great purchase! No issues with breakage and a great length for adults - seemed like such "expensive" beads to hand out compared to others - I wanted to keep them!

The good: First receiving these beads I was elated. They have a quality look to them and are a great length. These are not tiny low end beads.
The very bad:The purple beads' paint wore off on the guests and unfortunately baby wipes alone were not enough to wipe the paint off necks. It took a couple showers to fully get the purple off. Only the purple beads had this issue. When confirming the purple square beads were the culprit and not other purple beads I did a rub test and it was only the purple.
Conclusion: If you are throwing these from a balcony and don't care about the side effect the buy them they look great. If for a party and you like your friends then remember that 1/3rd are unusable. Had the purple beads not had the problem these would have been a 5 star review.
