Totally Terrific Tipped Laces
Great for kid necklaces
I have used this tipped yarn for the last several years with my kindergarten Sunday School class for making necklaces and bracelets. With 5 year olds, I have to tie a knot at one end so the beads don't fall off, but that's not bad. Out of 72 in the package, there are usually 2 or 3 that are not usable, and I look at both ends to choose the one that is more "tipped" to have the kid use. They can also be cut in half to use for two bracelets! I will order more.

Children loved using these along with beads and a cross to make a necklace.

lots, but may not last long
These are alright. There are plenty which is nice for big groups, but they are just tipped pieces of yarn. Started fraying a bit. So, great if you don't need to reuse them a lot.

Perfect project for little hands
We purchased these strings along with the star-shaped pony beads (IN-57/200) for our 3 1/2 year old to do as Christmas presents for her classmates. The laces and beads were great for her to use (we just tied one bead near the one end and she laced the other on the other end), it was only her attention span that wound up lacking. Now that she is almost 5, we still use the leftover laces and beads for counting games or other fun activities. Very easy for her to string on the beads herself with the tipped ends. We had no unusable laces in our batch.

This product was just as described. My Girls loved them and use them for all of their beads to make necklaces and other crafty items. I would recommend this product to other for sure as it is completely as described.

good for the money
These laces were bought to make jingle bell necklace for my three grandsons Christmas parties at school for their classmates. I purchased the small jingle bells form the not so perfect category. The reviews were leaning toward the wire in them was to big for the cane project. So instead , I made necklaces with 6 bells for each necklace and the students were excited. I even have extra left over to do it all over again next year!

I purchased this product for a pre-school (4 year olds) lacing project. The laces worked well and came in a wide variety of colors which satisfied all the kids.

Fun for kids
My 2 y.o. daughter uses these with large beads and she loves them! Just keep in mind that it's yarn, not string or cord.

These were very nice. the tips are plastic like shoe laces but the string is yarn. They were easy for even the smallest crafters to thread beads on to. The price was right as well. I would use these again.

great for beads
These were perfect for the church project we had. I was pleased that the wooden fish beads and the pony beads worked so well with the tipped laces. I was afraid that they would be too "fat", but the laces were thin and the kids easily threaded the beads for their project. Great buy!
