I had them when I was little, in the mid-50's, so they've been around a long time! I'm looking for them for my granddaughter, because they're fun, and every little girl should have them at least once in her life. I'll have to look at Wal-Mart....

They still make these!!! I just bought them in bulk for my Kindergarten-ers!!!! =) I had so many of them when I was little it was crazy, but you could reuse them over and over again. They have them at discount school supply places.

I had a set of these my great aunt sent them to me for christmas one year from Missouri. I played with them for a long time before eventually losing them all!

I had pink and purple pop beads too. But I left them outside and they faded. :(

I had these too. my first set was pearly, and I lost them slowly but surely. My grandmas doctors assistant gave me a copper colored set later. I still have them hanging on my wall. Go fig, I grew up to be a beadworker. Ha! Klutz has two sets of pop bead book/sets I think one has people parts and one has animal parts. I've given them to several friends kids and they have a blast with them.

Hi Cookie, Ida Marchetti-Rapa (and Her husband Harry Rapa) invented them. She's my mother's 2nd cousin.
