Some things never go out of style. Lacing Beads are timeless playthings with purpose. Rich colors, vibrant graphics, these beads are captivating educational fun!

One, two, three. Your little child's sweet voice can be heard counting beads. They spend time counting, building, arranging, and sorting, and so much more!

Number recognition, number concept, and number sequencing make sense. Shapes become easy to sort. Patterns are made - circle, square, star, circle... Grasping the colored laces and sliding them though is rewarding. Stringing the blocks in a line or in number order enhances fine motor skills.

All through for the day? Pack them all into the wooden tray for organized safekeeping.

Twenty-seven impressively designed shape and number blocks bring colorful excitement to young learners!

    Stringing fun!
    Posted 11/23/2013 by RACHEL N TRAYNHAM

    I purchased this for my 2 year old to play with, and it's been a hit. She immediately wanted to open it, and has enjoyed the challenge of stringing beads onto the thread. The set comes with two laces which can be strung from both ends. I ended up manually knotting the end of one for the time being so she could string multiple beads; otherwise she was stringing them all the way down the lace and wondering why they were coming off. At the moment she's just interested in the challenge of stringing the beads, as she gets older I anticipate she'll have more fun in creating designs.

    Review for Lacing Beads in a Box
    Posted 11/12/2013 by Steven A Brewer

    Our grand baby is 15 months. She loves the bright colors and spent a great deal of time stacking and knocking these down! She also got interested in helping us to thread the beads!

    This product is great for developing fine motor skills. We bought this for our two year old daughter and it is a little advanced for her. She is interested in it, so I'm sure it will be great in the future.

    Love these!
    Posted 9/30/2013 by Christine Legault

    I remembered threading beads of different shapes as a child, so I was excited to find these. Including the obvious fine motor skills involved, it serves as a tool for shape identification, colors, etc. My 2 year old sits and works at it on her own, and finds it rewarding to show me her creation at the end. Then, I talk to her about the colors, and shapes. Excellent colors, and quality materials. Love these. Good weight even after strung, and good size for little hands.

    Review of Lacing Beads in a Box
    Posted 9/19/2013 by Krista G

    Our two year old loves this toy. She has had it for a few days now and it still working on learning how to do it. Great learning experience, and also gives her something to focus on for a while. The quality of the beads and string is great. Highly recommend for a 2 year old.
