About Orbeez Toys
Despite their marble-like appearance, these small squishy balls are far from the hard glass toys that they mimic. Made from a flexible absorbent polymer material combining acrylic acid, sodium hydroxide and water, once additional water is added to these beads, you and your little ones can watch them grow as they absorb these water molecules and expand to become up to 150 times their original size! To shrink them back down again, simply leave them out of water.
Left in sunlight, the water will evaporate, so you can easily store these Orbeez 'seeds' inside your home or in a waterproof bag tucked away in your garage or shed. As a result, these beads can be used again and again by simply adding or taking away water, meaning you won't have to keep replenishing your stock of Orbeez toys! After all, the best part of playing with Orbeez toys is watching the colourful collection of beads grow before your very eyes!
What are Orbeez beads used for?
There are plenty of Orbeez toys that combine these colourful beads with spa or salon playsets as water can be easily added to these pretend play toys. By way of illustrating, Orbeez boasts a Spin and Soothe Hand Spa, an Orbeez Ultimate Soothing Spa, and an Orbeez Massaging Body Spa. Thanks to their squishy construction, these Orbeez beads are perfect for melting away any stress, so why not sit back and relax and let your budding massage therapist pamper you for a change?
Are Orbeez safe for kids to play with?
Perhaps one of the most important questions to bear in mind when purchasing any toy - is it safe your child? When it comes to Orbeez they are perfectly safe for your little ones to play with. Despite their non-toxic composition, we still wouldn't recommend letting your kids put these squishy balls of plastic near their mouths, but it does give you peace of mind should one happen to slip through the net and travel through their digestive system!
Although these squishy balls can also be slippery and bouncy, Orbeez toys are recommended for children who are five years old and above, simply because at this age your little ones tend to be more steady on their feet, limiting potential accidents. Not to mention, once your mess-makers have out-grown these tactile beads, they also come in handy for lawn irrigation and flood control as they don't release their colour and are completely safe to use outdoors.
