No Nasties water beads are non-toxic, easy to use and 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.
10g of one INDIVIDUAL COLOUR 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!

No Nasties Kids NZ is owned and operated by us, The Beveridge family.
We found this incredibly special brand while looking for natural face paints that our son would not cause our son's super sensitive skin to react. After many, many hours searching for a natural alternative we found No Nasties Kids. Shortly after we were fortunate to introduce No Nasties to NZ as the exclusive distributor.
Life is full of all kinds of twists and turns and we are so proud to now be the NZ licensee. Making what we can right here in NZ and bringing you the whole No Nasties range giving more children the ability to enjoy all the fun, without the nasties.
