Divisoria is the perfect place to find new and hot selling items for kids. What's even great is that you don't need to spend too much; it's very cheap yet very entertaining to kids. One of the reasons is the presence of foreign business owners who introduce new products from their countries at very affordable prices. During our stay with my family in Manila for Holy Week, I saw from my nephews and nieces these big soft colorful balls immersed in water housed in a clear container. They called it "Kisses" so out of curiosity I put it on my buy list for my kids. It is very easy to find this item, all I need to do is ask the sales lady and they already knew what I am describing off. The package is composed of 24 little packs of crystal beads with one animal per pack that also turns big. At home, I immediately get a clear container with ¾ waters and put the beads inside. In just an hour, the little beads started to expand gradually and it can even get bigger than the size of a marble. You can control the expansion, if you achieve the desire size, by removing the water and transfer it into another clear glass container. What's good is that it will not just serve as a colorful décor but it can hold plants, provides oxygen and nourish it. That is what I am planning to do with my beads.
I don't know the exact science about it but kids will be interested to know how these little beads will transform into bigger ones and how it can provide the oxygen and nourish the plants.
