Somewhat continued from THIS thread.

I was at my local Hobby Lobby store this past weekend and walked by the beads, simply out of curiosity.

At least locally, they have pretty much washed their hands of Hama products and are stocking pretty much nothing but Perler now, just like all of the other stores I've been to.

However, I did notice a 15,000 count jar of these "Made in China" Creative Kids beads. I'd bought a small blister pack of them a while back from the same place, just figuring they were a one-time thing and I'd never see anything else from them again. Imagine my surprise when I saw the jar.

I bought them, knowing from previous experience that they were made from a harder plastic that is tough to fuse with the other brands. But, while going through the bucket before I got it, I noticed 3 distinctly different shades of gray, two of which are discernibly different than Perler, while the other is only different to the most scrupulous of eyes. Not to mention three greens, three blues, a vibrant red, and some yellow/rust/cheddar/tan colors that are definitely different than what we've seen so far. I'll make an effort to take pictures of these colors this evening so you can see the difference.

I'll also try and make up a small design so you can see how these brands work together.

These don't produce the date-rape drug when ingested, do they? >.>

No those were the aquadots. Which I had been thinking about picking up to see what I could make with them.

I have a bad habit of chewing on random beads while working, and I gnawed on one of them last night, no ill effects. Wink
