WANTED: 5 Families to Review Orbeez Balls and Playsets for Sensory Fun Galore!

If your kids love sensory play, getting creative or just being hands-on,  Mum Central is looking for five families to join us as we review The One & Only Orbeez including the NEW Sensation Station, a non-toxic glow-in-the-dark sensory experience like no other!

If you’ve got kids 5 years+ and are interested in becoming a reviewer, then read on – this is a great opportunity to surprise your tribe and share your experience with other parents.

But before we get into the reviewing opportunity, let’s take a closer look at the mesmerising Orbeez balls in action and check out the new sensory playsets available.

What are Orbeez balls, anyway?

Orbeez are the original soft and squishy water beads designed for children 5 years+. The balls are non-toxic and grow to maximum size, upholding the national and safety requirements. There’s no need to soak the water beads in water first – they are already fully grown and ready for action.

NOTE: These balls are for play only and are NOT to be eaten so supervision is recommended for younger children.

These little water beads are absolutely mesmerising to play with too. My girls LOVE the various playsets and have spent hours and hours playing with them.

There are a few different playsets available, including the Orbeez Sensation Station which is sure to be popular on the Christmas wish list this year!

Orbeez Sensation Station

The Sensation Station comes with 2,000 (yes, two thousand!) water beads. 1000 glow-in-the-dark beads and 1000 multi-coloured water beads. That’s a lot of shimmery, squishiness to hold in your hands!

It also comes with a cool storage container and 6 unique tools. You can bounce the Orbeez water beads, you can crush them, and yes, you can even slice them!

There are 2,000 Orbeez balls to play with so you won’t ever run out of beads or ideas! Plus, once the kids are finished playing, you can easily pack them up, store them in the airtight storage container and bring it out the next time they feel like a bit of sensory play.

But one word of advice: Don’t leave them out in the sun or in an open container as they will dry out!

Orbeez Deluxe Feature Multipack

This is another popular play set which includes 2,000 Glow in the Dark, Shimmer and Marble Orbeez, packed in a 5-tier plastic container with re-sealable tops. That’s three different types of Orbeez to discover, bounce, sort, squeeze and crush!

Even more Orbeez balls to enjoy

Every reviewing family will not only receive both sets above, but also 1 x Feature Glow In The Dark Pack which contains 1,200 Glow in the Dark Orbeez packed in a clear plastic container.

Plus you’ll also receive 2 x Activity Orbs, a smaller but very cool set that has 400 Orbeez. You can unbox the Activity Orb to reveal one of three mystery activities – The Flow, Bounce and Squeeze Playsets! Which one will you get?

What to do with Orbeez – so many ways to play!

Of course, this is just the beginning of the fun. Here are a few more ideas to try:

  • Stand in the storage container and squish the colourful balls with their toes.
  • Make Orbeez jelly by filling up little clear Jelly shooters. Have a tea party and serve them to their dolls. DOLLS, not humans. (These are not to be eaten)
  • Make glowsticks by filling up clear beakers with glow-in-the-dark beads.

Children will also enjoy separating the various beads into different colours, turning the lights off and watching the glow-in-the-dark beads light up and uncovering the many other ways to play with these popular play sets.

The ultimate ASMR experience 

Another reason why Orbeez has become so popular (do a quick search of #Orbeez on any social channel and you’ll see what we mean), is because they are the ULTIMATE in ASMR.

So soothing, so calming, so satisfying to touch.

They are designed to soothe the senses, calm the mind and relieve tension and stress. Plus, they develop fine motor skills at the same time!
