Wonderful Wood Alphabet Lacing Beads
My daughter LOVES these! I did have to wrap some tape on the ends of each lace because it was too hard for her to pull it through without it . However, it wasn't a big deal. Great value for the money.

Also disappointed with letter distribution
These blocks are decent quality, and the price is really good when compared to similar products. However, I was really disappointed with the fact that for some letters, there was only 1 or 2 blocks, and others had literally 8 or 9. And it really seemed as if the letters I would need more often were the ones that were in short supply. I ended up sticking stickers over top of the letters, and changing them to what I needed.

Decent quality, Poor quantity distribution
These beads are decent quality - nice paint & nice size, though some of the letters were only partially stamped on. That was easy to fix with a black sharpie, though.
The thing I was disappointed with was the quantity of the different letters. I sorted them all out, and there were only a few of some of the most used letters - only 3-A's, 1-C, 2-E's, 2-D's, etc., while there was a ridiculously large amount of lesser used letters - 7-Z's, 8-K's, 5-Q's, 6-F's.

I Love The Beads
These are perfect for word work in my classroom. There were enough cubes for each letter, so students can easily spell words. I like that they are cubes and won't easily roll off their desks. My only suggestion is that they either use a lighter purple or change the black print for the letters. The letters were hard to read on the purple beads. I had to go over the letters with a silver marker so they could be read. I am going to use pipe cleaners for the students, so the lack of extra laces wasn't a problem.

Children learn dexterity, and the alphabet at the same time. Gotta love a multi-educational product.

Just the right size. Make sure to buy extra laces they will fit better.
