Want to try making your own weighted toys, lap pads or blankets? – Then these beads are for you!
Glass beads are a great eco-friendly alternative to plastic pellets. They’re non-toxic and can be washed. If you need some help with your project there are videos on youtube that can help you out.
I have plenty of weighted items available if you just don’t have the time to make your own, just check the other items in my shop.
Let me know if you're looking for more, and I'll see if I can order more in :)
Note: The image is a close up of the beads - they're very fine, a little larger than sugar. For making stuffed toys and blankets I recommend sewing the beads into a pocket made from non-stretch material before putting them inside your stuffed animal/blanket to prevent leakage :)
– Keep beads out of reach of children
– Weighted items are not recommended for children under 3 years (or for anybody who might have trouble getting up with a weighted item on them)
Contact me to arrange a time if you’d like to come an collect anything – you’re more than welcome to! (I live in Brooklyn, Wellington). Best times for pick-ups are before 2pm, or after 4pm on weekdays (though times can differ in the school holidays).
