These beads are well crafted, brightly coloured and come with a hard wearing draw string bag. My daughter will have hours of fun with them. They are of great educational value, and of course will be fun to play with. All the beads are double sided with the alphabet beads having a large letter on one side and a brightly coloured well designed picture on the reverse. The number beads have dots on the reverse of the lower numbers, and the higher numbers have the number as a word on the reverse. A well presented, good quality wooden toy that any child will have hours of fun with. Highly recommended.

Safe size for the very young. Can be used on many levels, not just threading and hand eye coordination but useful for shape, colour, counting, vocabulary, sorting etc. The beads will be used for a long time as the little one becomes more able to count and talk. I had to contact the company regarding a question about the product and they were most helpful. I have been looking for quite a while for something like this but for a child who has only just turned 2 years old. All the others I found were far too small to be safe.

My 22 month old LOVES these beads. They are very durable, colourful and I know they will last a long time. Currently, she likes me to tell her to thread the 'apple' or 'bus' - and the pictures are great. In the future we will be able to use the numbers too.
Her favourite thing is to make long necklaces for her daddy to wear. :)

A brilliant toy - simple, effective and in a lovely bag which she enjoys carrying around.

I love TO Y'S OF WOOD OXFORD. I bought this set of beads for my daughter age 4 who has just started school. In the reception year they need to know numbers 1 to 20 inside out. This is one of the few set which include numbers 1 to 20. This has allowed my daughter to translate her homework of making patterns from cutlery into a true understanding of the patterns of numbers... counting in 2's, 3's & 4's we've done so far.
On the back of the numbers 1 to 10 are the corresponding number of dots and 11 to 20 the number spelt ie eleven etc. This has really enhanced her understanding of numbers.
Of course the beans come with the alphabet too. So this is perfect as I have an 18th old boy who wants to do everything his sister does so he has been able to thread the alphabet on his lace while she laces numbers. We have also threaded just the flower beads, just the hearts, just orange ones just red etc there is no end to the fun of the beans. And of course we spell out my daughters key words, on, no, the, and, to, two, etc
They are large enough for very small hands to thread (though I do always supervise the laces even with my 4 old just as i do a skipping rope as they do funny things like wrapping the n knowing round wrists etc.) But it's a table game, just before dinner is served they get to do threading.
The alphabet beads also have a corresponding word on the other side supporting the learning of both letters and early words.

Very good quality, great value for money and a seller that cares about her creations.
Thank you for making such lovely toys... Gilly

These are FABULOUS! i wish people could see the amount of pleasure my dementia patients get from threading and talking about these beautifully made beads. they are fantastic quality and value and extremely stimulating for the mind both visually and verbally. Can be used in lots of ways. I am sure children will love them too, with their bright colours and pretty shapes. very well made and designed, a MUST buy for any dementia activity or of course for little ones. One of my favourite items from Toys of Wood Oxford, and used every day in my work as a Cognitive Stimulation Therapist.

Bought for a two year old. She loves spending time threading the beads and taking them off again and will sit happily for hours. Her 5 year old brother even plays with it too.

Bought for my granddaughter's second birthday. She immediately, with help, made a jolly necklace, whilst her four-year-old brother was more interested in the letters depicted. Less obvious words are used, eg 'impala' and 'lobster', so more challenging than most alphabet sets.
Two laces are included, and the bright and durable blocks can be kept in a useful drawstring bag.
All in all, a set which I hope both children will enjoy for some time to come.
