SoupDragon Thu 17-Mar-05 12:28:37

SoupDragon Thu 17-Mar-05 12:32:23

Why are they claiming it's a new thing though?? I remember them from my childhood.

SoupDragon Thu 17-Mar-05 12:32:42

There's scoubidou.co.uk but the website is down.

SoupDragon Thu 17-Mar-05 12:34:01

More here. I have to confess that I bought myslf a pack of the strings in Toys R Us a couple of weeks ago

cil Thu 17-Mar-05 12:34:25

SoupDragon Thu 17-Mar-05 12:36:53

You can buy a Scoubidou book.

How much were they SoupDragon, and for how many. I have been on the look out for these but have had no luck. I have seen them in the Panduro Catalogue, but if I place an order from there, I simply won't be able to resist all their other crafty goodies! I will end up spending a small fortune!

Have you tried these ones?

here
and here

Looks fascinating - but my dd's only 2 1/2!

cil Thu 17-Mar-05 12:41:43

pound shops are selling them for £1 for 35 strands

SoupDragon Thu 17-Mar-05 12:42:36

About £5 for <<rushes to get packet>> 100 bog standard ones. You can get glittery ones etc.

cil Thu 17-Mar-05 12:43:18

excellent thanks a lot for all the advice im a newbie to this site and i find it brill!!

Dingle Thu 17-Mar-05 12:52:57

Ooohhh...ooo....aaahh...I want some now! I have been looking at these for weeks, my fingers are twitching as I type!
Thank you for the info and the links! I must get some....SOON.

cil Thu 17-Mar-05 12:55:58

i find it hilarious walking round the school looking at all the mums (TRYING) me included to do them.

SoupDragon Thu 17-Mar-05 12:56:15

I can go to TrU tomorrow and send yu some, Dingle

I saw a picture of a snake and I want to know how to make one!

SoupDragon Thu 17-Mar-05 12:57:15

I've had success making them from thickish coloured cord before. In case you've got some hanging around...

Dingle Thu 17-Mar-05 13:24:34

Well I am wondering if I could attach them to my cards! I have thought about the twine stuff or leather thonging to put on mens cards.
I suppose I could improvise but for the kiddies cards, the bright neon or glittery one would go down well, don't you think?
I have a Toys'r'us nearby,I will get down there and have a look.
If they don't have any SoupDragon, I might take you up on your offer at some stage. In the meantime, I will be on the look out for that snake!

Jaysmum Thu 17-Mar-05 14:08:23

I can get a bag off a hundred+ threads for £1 from our local Bitz store......I use the different coloured threads on lots of my cards.....its ace stuff to use....I used one to make the hair for my skater boy on my card for the challenge!!!!!
If anyone wants me to grab some then CAT me and if you send me the £1 in a sae I'll happily get some for you.
My ds1 is always making stuff with them....wrist bands are the big thing here at the minute!!!

champs Thu 17-Mar-05 18:18:10

hiya,
have a look in your local newsagents/ minimart. every one I have been to has these in there. one had them for 89p each big bag. normal and glitter but another shop i went in I saw a much smaller bag for more.

Dingle Sun 20-Mar-05 14:13:43

Went to Toys'r'us this morning! They only had various bags with either 25 or 35 strands in and were charging £3.99 or £4.99 per bag!!

I am off to our local newsagents later to see if they have any lurking about.
