Hama 3,000 Pastel Bead Tub is a tub of 3,000 assorted coloured beads. They are standard Hama beads (5mm, usually referred to as Midi beads to distinguish them from Maxi beads and Mini beads, both of which are far less popular than Hama Midi beads). They are plastic fusible beads. The coloured beads are arranged on a plastic pegboard to form patterns or pictures. Once the pattern or picture is complete, the beads are fused together with a clothes iron. Hama beads can also be strung into necklaces, woven into keychains, or even assembled into three-dimensional decors.
