Valentine Super Stretchy Cording
This cord worked very well for use by 1st-3rd graders. It is very strong, but flexible enough to bend and tie together. The colors were excellent for our valentine's project. I can also reuse this product for other occasions.

Broke really easy
Although the colors were great, this "super stretchy" cording wasn't very stretchy at all. It broke really really easy and sent beads (and all the hard work a 5 year old put into it) flying onto the floor. Very disappointed. I would look for something stronger even for twice the price.

Cheap is cheap
I bought this cording because it was valentine colors. When my daughter and I tried to string beads on the cord it seemed so flimsy. So we tested it to see if it was strong enough by cutting a piece big enough for my kid's eight year old wrist. The first time it just pulled apart from it's knot. The second time, my daughter just pulled with little effort and it broke apart. So,it's not "Super stretchy" and it's really a waste of money, no matter how inexpensive. Their clear cording is better.

this cording is too thin and can be difficult to use with pony beads as it curls up very easily while beading. it also breaks very easily.

Stretchy and ties easily
I bought these to make some necklaces and bracelets with my daughter.
The cord is very stretchy and easy to tie. I thought the cord was going to be a bit thicker though, as it is fairly thin.
My almost 4 year old has some difficulty holding the cord and putting beads on because it's very flexible, not stiff or thick to easily grip.
I found it fairly easy to use, but may not be the best for younger kids.
Overall, we like how stretchy it is and the bracelets and necklaces so far seem to be holding up!

good for beading
I used this with the foam hearts. it was easy to thread and good for kids of all ages. The only trouble I had was keeping it knotted at the end. We just needed to make certain we used more than one knot and then it stayed just fine.
