Our mixed packs of beads in different shapes and colours contain an attractive mix which is perfect for your children´s handicrafts fun. In the bag marked “Standardfarben (standard colours)” you will find beads coloured dark brown, ivory, red, orange, yellow, green, light blue, medium blue, violet, lilac and pink. The matte pastel colours, on the other hand, consist of light blue, light green, grass green, lemon yellow, sun yellow, orange, red, pink, rose pink and ivory. The brown tones are limited to natural (not painted), ivory, deer brown, and chestnut brown.
The shapes are multifarious: along with round beads with various diameters, the packages contain barrels, round discs, cubes, tear shapes, etc. The bags with the matte pastel coloured beads also contain discs that are shaped like hearts and flowers – it is not only these shapes but the whole spectrum of pastel colours that make this mixture particularly loved by little girls.
Like all of our painted wood beads, those in the mixed packs are made from European woods that we purchase from a German producer who works exclusively with paints which conform to the German Food and Commodities Law (much stricter statute than the one covering toys!).
Attributes: Our wooden beads are very well made. They are made exclusively by European producers using European woods. Because the finished product can and should end up in children’s hands, the paints and dyes employed are not only free of heavy metals as well as saliva and sweat resistant but also conform to the German Food and Commodities Law (LMBG).
Among other things, this law prescribes which attributes are allowed for objects that come into direct contact with foodstuffs. Because the statutes of the German Food and Commodities Law are much stricter that those covering toys, any object made from our coloured wooden beads can be allowed in the hands of small children as well as in their mouths! Please keep in mind, however, that small children up to 3 years old are especially prone to swallowing small objects!
Uses: Wooden beads are the perfect things for children to use when learning to be creative. In combination with LEATHER STRINGS, RUBBER STRETCH CORDS or WIRE, the beads can be used to make not only jewellery pieces like necklaces or armbands but Christmas tree ornaments, toys or figures as well. In addition, they are great for constructing molecular models that can illustrate the atomic configuration of a material. It should also be mentioned that more ambitious jewellery creations can be achieved when the beads are used in combination with other materials.
