Flashing Beads for Mardi Gras
Ordinary Mardi Gras beads are colorful and fun, but flashing beads for Mardi Gras are absolutely extraordinary. Sometimes called "hot beads," flashing beads are visible from three city blocks away. If you want a set of beads to help you stand out from the crowd, these are the ones.
Flashing beads cost more than other Mardi Gras beads, but we think they're worth it. These aren't "throwing" beads--they're beads worth keeping. You'll want to wear them to your local Mardi Gras parade year after year. Simple watch batteries power up our flashing beads for about 30 hours. Depending on how much "party stamina" you've got, you may only need to replace the battery once every few years. Each blinking bead is lit from within by a light-emitting diode, or LED.
