Rather disappointed to open the envelope and find four little bags containing between 25 and 31 beads each, totalling 115 beads. Disregarding the fact that all beads could have fitted in a single bag, if the weight of the bags is included the beads + bags still only weighs 4 g and not the approx 6 g advertised. Having bought from a rival Amazon seller and for a similar price having received six packets weighing 4g each, I'm rather underwhelmed by this delivery. Two stars because the service was prompt and water beads themselves are a great product that I won't be buying from this vendor again.

These are just great, I bought a few bags for my children to play with and found them amazing.

The kids had a lot of fun watching them grow and then bouncing them all over the place. If bounced hard enough they will break but overall they are surprisingly robust.

It should be pointed out that one bag looks like a tiny amount (would fit on a spoon as the dry beads are very very small) however once they expand which takes about 6 hours each bead is just over 1 cm across and it makes expands to a lot (About 2/3 of a large pyrex bowl).

If left in a bowl together in takes many days for them to start to decrease in size, if you spread them out on a cloth in the sun you can shrink back to original size in 2 days. Ready to put back in the bag waiting for the next time you want to get them out.

There is probably many uses such as flower arranging etc but at the moment they are still to much fun just to handle and play with.

Different sensations and inputs for working on sensory integration with special needs children. These gelly balls are just right for a fun activity!

Good product. I'm still experimenting but it's certainly a rewarding experience for a unique product. They look very pretty in glass vases and other items and have aroused many interesting comments.

I used these with autistic children. They absolutely loved them . Very sensory (although a bit fragile) but as soon as they start to shrink add more water and watch them grow again. IT'S MAGIC!!!

Tried this product but it is not all its made to be and not that great! This could work if you have a very small vase but if using multiple packs for a larger vase its not worth it.

Fascinating product. Haven't found that most houseplants survive in the beads but some very strong, well-established plants don't seem to have come to harm. Otherwise, excellent.

I received one tiny little bag containing 24 of the beads, once expanded I would have been lucky to have filled an egg cup. The total weight, with the bag, was probably less than 1g, not the 6g as stated. Very disappointed. Why show a glass vase filled with the beads when in reality this is not the case
