This is one of those "great" ideas I had for a fun activity for my 4 and almost 3 year old. Yay sensory fun, woo hoo non-toxic, yay look at all those pretty colors. I thought they were amazing the first time we soaked them and had fun running my fingers through this giant bowl of jiggling marbles....

Fast forward 2 days later when my kids realized they could squish them...and squish them they did. I had jelly bits from one end of my kitchen to the other, jelly in my toes, jelly on the table, jelly EVERY where. Imagine Dexter but instead of blood spatter it is little bits of jelly. This jellycidal rampage took place quickly and there were many casualties.

So yes...this is fun...but be forwarned that cleaning up jelly spatter from places, you wouldn't even dream of can be one heck of a downer. Also side bar, after spending an hour in squished jelly trying to clean these up, my hands did start to burn a bit from the sodium.

These little balls of hydro-gel soak up water and become the consistency of tapioca. If you buy them for your kid, be prepared to pick them up off the floor, out of the sink, out of the toilet. And no matter what you do, don't try to dispose of them by flushing them down the drain. They become stuck in the trap and will rupture the pipe once they have soaked up enough water. Don't ask how I know. Let's just say we have a rule in the house about how to dispose of these beads.

I use these in my PreK class and the children LOVE them! Perfect for a light table or sensory table. I used approx. 1 tsp in a 2x1 foot clear container, added water and they immediately began to plump up. Within a few hours they were bigger than marbles. They feel a bit slimy as you play with them, but most of the children didn't mind that. They also shrink up if you leave them for several days and you can reuse them. Fantastic learning and exploration!

So you get this little package and you're like, "What the hell? No way in hell is this over 4000."
Well lemme tell ya something honey, it seriously is.
I put all of them in the tub and waited an hour for all of them to puff up and it just about filled the whole damn thing!
Down side now is that I have to wait for all of them to dry up so I can take showers, lol.
Great for plants, or what I like to use them as, pranks.
You can hide these little niggets anywhere, like shoes and when your vitum comes to put their shoes on..
BAM!!
Wet balls up in their grill!
Love these man.

I don't know why, but these tiny beads (which start smaller than bb's and grow when put into water) are magical to kids. My kids both have a tub of them that they play with. I don't know what appeal is but they are happy so I'm happy.

Our kids love these! We bought this product for them to play with. Ages 2-7 It's perfect to soak them over night and have them ready the next day. The different colors are fun too.

I ordered two bags of the Jelly Beadz as I was not sure how big they actually got. Oh my, to my surprise, they get pretty big. We are having a fun time using them in our sensory bins.

These things are incredible! I had a few doubts about them because the packing seemed too good to be true. They start out as tiny hard balls about the size of an "O" and expand to about the size of a small grape. It takes about 6 hours for them to get to full size. I believe they are indeed non-toxic. They do not smell like chemicals at all. They are reusable, it takes a couple days for them to dehydrate but then they can go back in the plastic bag they came in for another time or you can leave them in water so they stay big. My kids and husband love playing with these.

We bought these for a fun project with our son. One bag goes a long way. He has a blast playing with them. They get surprisingly big considering how small they are to begin with. The only problem we had with them is getting them to shrink down. They take FOREVER to revert back to the tiny size they come in. Seems to work best to dry them out if you can lay them out on a towel or paper towel, but still takes a long time to dry them out.
