Care and Disposal

• Store: When you finish playing with your Water Gems, we suggest cleaning them under cool water with a touch of hand soap before storing them, germ-free in your Busy Bee Tray or any airtight container. Activated Water Gems will keep in your Busy Bee Tray for approximately two weeks. If you don't intend to play with them for a little while, lay them in the sun; after some time, they will dehydrate, preventing mold and allowing you to store them in the bag provided.

• Expiration: Cared for and stored as suggested, your Water Gems will last you years and can be dehydrated & rehydrated as you please.

• Disposal: Water Gems are non-toxic and 100% bio-degradable. When it's time for them to move on, please dispose of them in your garden or compost; your garden will thank you for it, also!

• Important Disposal Announcement: Do not dispose of your Water Gems, crushed or whole, down sinks or toilets! It's not fun having to call a plumber.


• Recommended Age: 3+

• Note: Water Gems may pose a choking hazard; vigilance is always required. Not suitable for our littlest loves 0-3 or those that like to put things in their mouth. Yes, they are non-toxic, but Water Gems are not intended for human consumption and would taste awful!

• Important: If unactivated Water Gems are consumed, don't offer fluids as this will activate expansion; visit your closest emergency.
