Who owns Orbeez?
Spin Master Corp.
TORONTO, Dec. 6, 2019 /PRNewswire/ – Spin Master Corp. (TSX: TOY; www.spinmaster.com), a leading global children’s entertainment company, today announced that it has completed the acquisition of the award-winning Orbeez™ brand and other select brands from Maya Toys, complementing its growing Activities segment.
Who is the company that makes the Orbeez?
Orbeez are developed and produced by the Maya Group Corporation. When placed in water they swell, still retaining their circular shape, and are super fun for kids to play with. The commercials show kids having a great time and making a complete mess with Orbeez flying everywhere – just waiting to be eaten by the family dog.
What was the original purpose of the Orbeez toy?
The science behind inventing the Orbeez toy, actually originated for agricultural use rather than children’s amusement. Orbeez are used for agricultural purposes because they give off small amounts of water as time goes on.
What kind of polymer is an Orbeez made out of?
Orbeez, which are also known as water beads, are made up of super absorbent polymer (SAP) that can absorb and retain an incredibly large amount of liquid. This type of polymer is hydrophilic, which means they’re highly attracted to water!
What do you need to know about Orbeez beads?
Orbeez are made of acrylic acid, sodium hydroxide, and color pigmentation. You will buy them from the stores packed in plastic bags. Then, you need to grow them to have fun with the beads. Empty one packet of Orbeez seeds into a container of your choice. Add one and a half cups of water to the Orbeez and soak for at least three hours.
