Product Details

Our SMALL size water beads are the smallest size we stock and they grow to 7mm in diameter. Just like our other sizes, you only need to add them to water and wait for them to grow! However, unlike the regular and large sizes, we recommend our small size for use with water bead (aka water gel) blasters. You could use them as decorations or for playtime, but our regular and large sizes would be better for those purposes.

Main Features:

  • Made from non-toxic & non-flammable hydrogel.
  • Beads are reusable by adding more water once they dry out.
  • Beads grow to approx. 7mm in size.
  • Each 125g box contains approx. 10,000 beads that will fill approx. 10 liters of volume once enlarged and drained of excess water.
  • Suitable for ages 4+.
  • Also known as water crystals, water balls, gel balls, crystal balls, magic beads, hydrogel, water marbles and Orbeez®.

Colours Available:

  • Mixed Colours
  • Blue
  • Light Green
  • Orange
  • Red
  • Transparent
  • Yellow
  • Black
  • Tiffany Blue

Why Choose HydroBeadz Water Beads?

  • Much better value when compared to other brands sold in New Zealand (for example, 125g of NoNasties beads would cost more than $100).
  • Outer cardboard box and internal resealable bag for easy storage.
  • Window on the front to easily tell your colours apart.
  • Instruction booklet included in every box.
  • All boxes are at least 125g NET weight (generally, the internal bags are overfilled to ensure you always receive what you pay for or more).
  • Highest rated water bead brand in New Zealand with hundreds of 5 star reviews across multiple sales channels!

How to Grow Your Water Beads:

Simply place the beads into a container of water for 4 - 6 hours. Remember that you've got around 10,000 in a packet, and they grow to many times their original size so don't put too many in at once! We recommend you use distilled water for best results, but tap water should work fine too.

Awesome Water Bead Ideas:

Please note: Our SMALL size is primarily intended for use with water gel blasters (toy guns which fire water beads). These blasters generally use the 7mm size, but some may use the larger 11mm size so please make sure you choose correctly!

Some other water bead ideas are listed below, but these ideas would work better with the regular or large size beads:

  • Playtime! In the garden or the bath, these balls provide hours of fun.
  • As a sensory tool for young children and persons with learning disabilities.
  • Household decorations in flower vases and candle holders.
  • Wedding and event decorations - perfect for colour matching a theme.
  • For retaining moisture in the garden or your indoor potted plants.
  • As aromatic diffusers, simply add your scent and you're good to go!

What Are Water Gel Blasters?

Gel blasters, also known as gel guns, gel shooters, gel markers, hydro markers or gelsoft, are toy guns similar in design to airsoft guns, except that they shoot superabsorbent polymer water beads as projectiles. Gel blasters are great fun and safer than paintball (but still remember to wear eye protection). At some point, we hope to retail them through our sister site - Until then, if you're interested in ordering then there are a few NZ based retailers.
