PRODUCT: Melissa & Doug Gleeful Garden Bead Set (  Doug Gleeful Garden Bead Set

DESCRIPTION: A craft set of over 150 coloured shaped wooden beads for young children to make their own jewellery, presented in a wooden storage box with lid. Includes 5 x coloured thread cords. Suitable for children aged 4 years upwards.

GOOD POINTS: This little set of garden themed beads from the Melissa & Doug range makes a great gift for young girls and is the perfect way for them to try their hand at some fun homemade jewellery.

The set is of wonderful quality, and comes in a lovely sturdy wooden presentation box with a separate Perspex lid that slides on for handy storage of the beads.

The kit consists of a generous array of beads, all wooden and in a variety of bright fresh colours and attractive shapes. These include regular round and oval shaped beads, as well as a number of pretty garden-inspired designs including flowers, ladybirds, butterflies, dragonflies and a smiling sun. Several lengths of different coloured lace are also included to enable your child to create all sorts of colourful mix-and-match jewellery pieces, such as bracelets, necklaces and anklets, that they can enjoy wearing themselves or give to friends and family.

Each bead has a large hole through the centre to accommodate the width of the lace, and each lace has plastic tips to ensure young children can easily thread them through even the biggest beads. The lace can simply be cut (under supervision) to the required size and knotted or tied to fasten, and if your child fancies a change they can simply unthread the beads and start again!

In our opinion, the Melissa & Doug Gleeful Garden bead Set is a lovely craft kit of excellent quality and attention to detail, and is a creative and simple way to keep young girls entertained for hours...a great activity for birthday parties and compact enough to take on holiday for some rainy day fun!

BAD POINTS: No clasps or fastenings are included.
