to expect to see proper hair bobbles when I search under Bobbles on e-bay!

honestly - the world has gone mad! I want large plastic balls, cubes or characters, threaded on to decent bits of looped elastic! I dont care what they are as long as they are chunky and bright and a make a good "bobble noise" when clacked together.

You cannot class those silky flowers as bobbles, nor the tiny things glued on toweling bands, and certainly not scrunchies!

I want the bobbles I had when I wa a girl - but I want them for my daughter!

Why would anybody look on ebay for hairbobbles??? Go to Claire's or Superdrug or somewhere!

boots do ones with balls on that make a beautiful sound,

Done that! Superdru have pink, purple, gold or silver balls - boring!

It;s very rare to find exactly what I am looking for in claires - have managed it twice!

Being a child of the 80's I want little green mice with pink ears like I had! And little clusters of bright balls etc etc!

Superdrug LMF. They have some lovely retro bobbles atm.. and in adult sizes as well!

Oh. right. Well yesterday they had brown squares.. and red triangles, all in chunky plastic!

And I bought large packs of bobble from Ebay in bulk before Jan.. mainly red ones for school. DD must eat them I think!

Thax Shiny - will go look again in Superdrug!

the metalic balls look wrong for a child, and the pink and purple balls had thin elastic.

Once ordered some hairstuff from e-bay for DD@s pary bags, but it naver came. Seller said she sent two lots - I dont actuallythink she even sent one!

Oooh, try Matalan, I'm sure I've seen some interesting ones in there. I know I have seen them elsewhere too but no idea where. My girls have grown up - what do I know
