Available Sizes:

We currently have three sizes available - small, regular, and large. As packets are sold by weight, the smaller the bead size the more there will be in a packet.

Small Beads:

These are the smallest and firmest beads. They grow to approximately 7 to 8mm in diameter and you can expect around 10,000 per 85 gram packet.

Regular Beads:

These are our mid sized beads. They are the most popular size chosen as they are large enough for play, whilst also maintaining durability. They grow to approximately 10 to 12mm in diameter and you can expect about 7000 in each packet.

Large Beads:

Our large beads work great as decorations, although they can also be used for play too. Softer and less durable, they'll break apart more easily when compared to the regular and small sizes. These grow to approx. 15mm in diameter and you can expect about 2500 per 85 gram packet.

Available Colours:

* Please note that not all colours are available for each size.

How Do I Grow My HydroBeadz?

Simply place your HydroBeadz into a container of water for 4 - 6 hours (the large size may require a little longer). Remember that you've got thousands in each packet, and they grow to many times their original size so don't put too many in at once! We recommend you use distilled water for best results, but tap water should work fine too.

Regardless of the size of beads used, you should aim for one measuring teaspoon of beads per 3 measuring cups of water.

Great HydroBeadz Ideas!

  • Playtime! In the garden or the bath, these balls provide hours of fun.
  • As a sensory tool for children and persons with different learning abilities.
  • Household decorations in flower vases and candle holders

  • For retaining moisture in the garden or your indoor potted plants.
  • As aromatic diffusers, simply add your scent and you're good to go!

Grandies love hydro beads!

Hydro beads provide hours of fun for my grandchildren. The beads are versatile, magical to look at and feel amazing!


It is great getting to see them grow from tiny beads into balls. My daughter loves to play with them, they're great for fine motor skills and they are a wonderful sensory activity. Shipping was super quick too!

Great for using in cylinder vases for table decor

We have used these as a trial for our Annual Fundraising Dinner table decor. They work so well to keep our foliage in place once we fill the vases with water and disappear, creating a lovely decor item.

HydroBeadz Water Beads - Excellent Product

I ordered the HydroBeadz Water Beads (mixed colours/medium size) on a late Monday afternoon and they were delivered next morning! These beads are such great quality and brilliant colours. I am a teacher at a Christchurch kindergarten and I would highly recommend this product for children's sensory exploration.

Best indoor party activity

Due to forecasted rain we ordered Hydrobeadz as an indoor activity for my daughter second birthday. It was a hit with all ages including all adults and everyone had the best time exploring them
