No Nasties water beads are non-toxic and easy to use. They may encourage children to learn through sensory play, using hand-eye coordination - they are "slippery little suckers!"

They are teeny tiny little beads, about the size of a poppy seed before they are soaked in water after which they grow approximately 150 times their original size.


You are limited only by your imagination when it comes to our water beads – which is what makes this product so awesome for all ages.

 Littlies (not for use under 4 years) Colour sorting, water play, counting, colourful playground (in a bowl), pretend cooking, sensory play, fine motor skills, bouncing, rolling, fairy gardens, make a fairy rainbow, in the bath (remember to sieve them out before you let the plug out!)

 Bigger Kids  Sensory play, treasures, bouncing, fairy gardens, dinosaur lands, colour sorting, in the bath (remember to sieve them out before letting the plug out!), great for show and tell.

 Adults I LOVE the feel of water beads! Full disclaimer, they are addictive to play with! In a gorgeous glass bowl on the bench, they are pretty and colourful and the feel of them is such a stress release. Dip your hand into a bowl of these and they feel amazing!

Our water beads are biodegradable, simply put them in your garden when you are finished and cover with soil.


 What's Included

10g of water beads (approximately 500 beads)

Packaged in a recyclable soft plastic bag and a recyclable cardboard box

 How to Use

To grow them, you simply put them into a large bowl and cover with 5 cups of water and watch them expand over the next 5 or so hours. PRO-TIP - Use warm/hot tap water for faster growth.

One they have grown, drain away excess water and voila, you have a bowl of slippery, colourful, bouncy, ball fun!

    Water beads

    I bought the water beads and we saved them for a Rainey day. I’m not sure what I was expecting from them possibly some entertainment from watching them grow? But my little one is still playing with them in a daily basis weeks into having them. When they shrink she just adds more water. Like the gift that keeps giving!
