This is super cute, only thing I will say that I didn't like about it was that the Snoopy is cardboard, I would had been happier if was a metal and sticker on it. I liked that you can make it whatever size you need and that everything was included. My daughters enjoyed doing but had to have a little help because they kept leaving the string down which would make other beads come off. Once we got that they really enjoyed making it and showing it off to friends and family.
