My grandson (almost 2) enjoyed his own beads (his mother works with beads a lot) and had no trouble stringing them on the rope. He also likes rolling them across the floor.

This simple toy is perfect for my grandson, just 2 years old. He played with this a long time at his birthday party. Connor loves to handle things and has just discovered beads. These large ones are perfect for his little hands to handle easily.

Bought two of these as gifts for nephews. (Same age [4 months from being 2]; but different in physical size.) Didn't realize that might be a factor until watching them play. The bigger sized child loved the beads, tasted them, & immediately tossed them at various targets before attempting to put them on the rope. The smaller sized child also loved the beads, & while he wasn't interested in tasting them, he loved holding/feeling them... thus had he been any smaller, the beads would easily have been stuck on his fingers! He was quite fascinated with stringing them on the rope. That said I would buy these again, but would be cautious as to the physical size of the child. The beads are chunky for their little fingers and they are fascinated without realizing the benefits of this toy!

Perfect toy for our recent car trip! These kept my 19mo busy and entertained for quite some time in her car seat. The beads are nice and big--the holes are just big enough to slip onto toddler fingers--and the cord is stiff enough to make threading easy.
