Transparent Mardi Gras Beads
good for younger kids
these work well with our younger children, although the older ones have a more difficult time putting them on. they are a bit short, but for the cost, since the beads are able to be opened, joining two strands together should take care of that problem easily. we gave these to the kids as well as spreading them around on the tables. for an inexpensive decoration or as a "toss away", these are perfect.

Those were the worst necklaces ever
I bought the necklaces for out TOPS(take off pounds sensibly) fall rally because we were having a mardi gra and they were the worst necklaces ever.I thought they would have had bigger beads so you could have at least seen them.and they didnt even fit around your neck.Very dissappointed with your product.

not worth price
The beads were not what I was looking for, but the price was good. The beads were too small and the length was not long enough to go over an adults head. But for that price, I did get what I paid for. I did a online chat with OTP and asked how I could do a return (not expecting anything) and the very nice lady told me to keep/donate the beads and I got a total refund, no problem. The refund came that next week. So I am satisfied with the company. Great service!

Not what I expected
These were smaller than what I expected causing the need to distribute more than one out at a time.

Worst Purchase Ever
I was VERY dissatisfied with this purchase. They were NOT what I had expected, They are cheaply made and break real easily. I had several that were broken. I have made many purchase from here and have never been so displeased with a product as I am with this one.

misleading photo & description
These beads are actually very tiny and scratchy. They come apart easily and get all tangled up. I would not recommend them for children. The price is fair for them but the quality of the beads is very poor in my opinion. I much prefer the larger beads (about 36" long). They cost more but are much nicer and kids like them better.

Look Closely before purchasing! You can't beat the price but if you were looking for real mardi gras beads, these are not for you! Very small and cheaply made...you get what you pay for!!!

Not Worth It
I bought these as throw outs for our end of the school year dance. They are not what I expected at all. They are soooo small and don't fit over anyone's head, you have to undo the plastic clasp in the back to get them on. I expected them to be a little bigger and not as cheap looking. They remind of play jewelry you would get for your 4 year old to play dress up with. I guess I know better for next year. i would have returned them but didn't have enough time to replace them by the dance. I really thnk they are a waste of money. I don't know what anyone would use these for.

These are 24" which means that they don't fit over most kids heads - they DO have a small plastic clasp - the kind where you push one side of the necklace into the clasp. They are not as brightly colored as the other shiny mardi gras beads, but these were included in our treasure chest along w/ chocolate coins, gum coins, bling rings, bracelets, shiny mardi gras beads & other stuff from O. T. Our theme was arabian nights & the treasure chest filled w/ all the goodies was a big hit!
