More for your money! 53 chunky wooden beads for children! Each measure 1 to 1 1/2 inches long and are fun to lace as well as educational! These date to the 1990s and were used by my children who benefited by developing fine motor skills, visual perceptual skills and bilateral coordination. Lacing activities help introduce children to the precursor skills of shoe tying and sewing. Lacing uses the same small hand muscles and hand-eye coordination. These beads are red, yellow, purple, blue, and green. They show some wear but weren't chewed and look very good as the photos show. They served us well for years and will last a lifetime!
