These are adorable! The kitty has a red bow in its ear, making it super cute. Comes in three color choices: pinks, purples, and mixed colors. The cat head is lampwork which makes it pretty durable. The other beads are acrylic with the exception of the pearls which are heavy glass. I've not had trouble with breakage. They are very durable. The bands are adjustable and bend in half. I bend them at shows to show people how durable they are. I imagine they could break if you tried, but they should hold up to daily, normal wear by children.
