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!

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!

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 [email protected] 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

Sainsburys?
