Reviewed in the United States on 22 June 2016
This review is of the Melissa and Doug Deluxe Wooden 27-Piece Lacing Beads in a Box.

I bought this lacing beads set for my 3 year old son. He currently is enrolled in the Early Childhood Special Education program. I'm constantly looking for activities that will grab his interest as well as assist him in the various areas he struggles in. This does that.

Included in this purchase is:
-27 beads (blocks numbered 1-10, 4 cylinders, 4 circle blocks, 5 cube blocks, 4 star blocks)
-2 lacing strings with plastic tipped ends
-small wooden storage crate

The beads are very well constructed and the included laces slide in well. They are very colorful and vibrant, but the color doesn't stay on with normal usage. We've had these for less than 5 months and the paint is rubbing off (only on the edges). To see this, please view the image I included. I read other reviews which indicated that this happens for a lot of people-especially those whose beads were played with on hard surfaces- so I was prepared for it to happen. Although I would love for the beads to maintain their color , I don't find it to be a deal breaker.

The strings work well and the plastic covered ends allow for tiny fingers to navigate the lace through the bead.

The storage crate is adorable, but not practical for this item. There is no lid so there's nothing to stop the blocks from falling out which, in turn, requires it to be stored right side up. Although this might work well in a more structured setting, it's not the best for free play at home. I decided to ditch the box and instead use a plastic storage container with a latch. It is easy for my child to take out and put back, and it securely keeps all of the pieces together. Please see included image to view my storage solution.

We use the lacing beads for both structured and imaginative play. This set allows us to work on fine motor skills (lacing and stacking), colors, matching and sorting, shapes, and patterns. For kids still working up being able to lave with strings, our special Ed teacher recommended using a wooden sticks from a craft store or pipe cleaners.

So I just said the paint wears off and the storage box isn't practical...why, do you ask, am I still giving it 5 stars. To start- there's nothing wrong with the storage container it comes in. It's actually very well constructed. This is exactly how the item was advertised and sold and I was aware of this when I bought it. I thought the price was reasonable and would have bought it for that same price even if the storage container wasn't included.

Then there's the issue with the paint wearing off. I totally get that this would bug some people. It just doesn't happen to bug me. It seems logical and natural to me that painted wooden blocks would have paint wear off around the edges. And because this item is priced so reasonably, I wouldn't expect the color to stay perfect forever. But even with the color rubbing off on spots, enough of the paint remains on to keep the item looking cute and attractive to the kids.
