    I used to always play with those beads when I was little, but now I can't find them anymore. Do you have any idea where to find them? Wait. . . You probably do. My actual question is something along the lines of, "Could you please tell me where to get them?".

    Haha I order mine from perler! If you're Canadian like me try the shipping cos to Canada is MUCH better. If you buy six packs or more the price of 2.17 a bag goes down too 1.99 a bag. (this is for both perler and if you're from the uk you may want to search for "Hama beads" rather than perler. You can buy these beads in the uk anywhere or online at, you can buy perler beads at your local craft shop, even sometimes wal mart but the only thing is they're 4.99 a bag and that's in cad currency, if you live next to micheals craft shop you can try coupons for 50% off but it's better to buy online, you save a lot. You'll also need pegboards, I started off with one but eventually I started to make bigger sprites... Like this plant took two boards. And lastly, if you're getting into perler beads ORDER A LOT OF BLACK! They're used for EVERYTHING and are the quickest to go, I recommend you buy 10 packs of black to every 20 packs of colour beads ordered.

    Hope this helped hahaha, sorry for the long response. Good luck and happy crafting! :D
