This is one of those classic toys that you'll probably hold on to for the grandkids or pass along to another child you know. My daughter has played with this since she was about one year old. At first, it was more or less a noisemaker, but she soon used it for making patterns and practicing counting. We homeschooled her for her first year, and we used this in a lot of our math activities. Despite its daily use, it looks brand new.
I love everything Melissa & Doug always Good Material, Good Construction. I bought this for my daughter. She likes the colorful beads and enjoys moving them around. It is a nice addition to our toy room.
