Never tried Aqua, sorry, but Hama are great. We can give you some spares

Never heard of Aqua, what are they?

Never tried the Aqua beads, but I'd imagine they must be easier than the Hama ones (I could show you scars from ironing my sodding fingers rather than the beads) and the damn things get everywhere.

Oops, cross posted- I got a big tub of Hama-likes in IKEA, then lots more from Jenners although now they are Hamley's I don't know if they stock them. I think JL do them, somewhere around the bit where toys and knitting stuff meet.

Oh, I'm really glad it's going better, and you didn't go on and on at all, I had a good time We had too much wine, didn't we, I could easily have ended up in Fairmilehead myself

Tamum Fri 28-Sep-07 16:36:16

Oh, and you can get cool glow in the dark Hama beads to make ghosties and stuff with!

i prefer the aqua as dd can do them herself the hama ones sit around waiting for me to iron them and normally get kn ocked over whilst waiting around

We have Hama not tried Aqua tbh. It is fine as long as your dd isn't overambitious and it can stay safe while in progress. We have had disasters with almost made Disney Princesses getting knocked. Currently on a butterfly fairy thing.
