Review on Product
Pony beads are economical and easy to incorporate in a variety of craft projects. This particular bag of multicolor opaque beads from Darice delivers 1000 beads for well under a penny a bead. The generous easy-to-thread hole in the middle keeps frustration low and creative minds engaged. The bead colors are distinct and can be used for other education purposes as well (i.e. math, pattern recognition, motor skill development, etc.).
The main flaw to be aware of is the various imperfections of a few of the beads. Some beads have non-smooth edges that can scratch the users, some beads are not formed well so the beads cannot lay flush to the neighboring bead, etc.. This problem is easily resolved by sorting through them, older kids likely will have no issues with this, but it is still an inconvenience. Overall, these beads still deliver on color, quantity and value. Amazon users give this product 4.6 out of 5 with over 1,300 reviews.
