Hama Beads are an exciting creative toy for all age groups, so it’s handy that Hama Beads come in 3 different versions to satisfy the various age ranges.
Hama Bead can be fun, even for kids as young as 3. The special Maxi Beads (also known as “My First Hama”) are specifically designed for the pre-school child and have a diameter or 10mm. Saying that, don’t be afraid to use Maxi Beads at any age as a great way to start your first project.
These are by far the most common Hama Beads in circulation and what you will come to find in most of the highstreet shops. The medium sized beads are 5mm in diameter and suitable for age 5 and above.

These are tiny beads which are 2.5mm in diameter. These allow far more detailed designs (as you can see from the illustrations*) to be created and comes with a recommended age of 10+ (including adults)
