Occasion:Classroom or daycare
I bought these for my Kindergarten students to make as one of our activities centered around The Gingerbread Man. I really liked that the pieces were wood and the picture online and in the catalog is so cute. They were very easy for my students to put together. They only needed help tying them and putting on the clasp. The problem I had with the product was the poor quality. The first pack I opened to put together a sample had one wooden bead that wasn't drilled all the way through and one of the bells was missing the loop to attach it to the necklace. As I opened them to re-bag them for my students I noticed a lot of poor quality pieces, especially the gumdrops and gingerbread men. The paint would be peeling off or the wood was cracked or broken or the screws were out. Some of the paint on the gingerbread men was smeared looking. There were also many packs missing a piece or with a bell missing the ring to attach it. I only needed 18 necklaces but it took all 24 packs I ordered to put together enough decent pieces to make these and that was using some pieces whose quality was still sub par. The one part I will say was really good was the string. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of it. I just wish the other pieces had been as good since the product is really cute.
Pros: Age appropriateness
No, I would not recommend this product to a friend.
