      I think they have some sort of Scandinavian name in Europe; I know I saw lots of them in the shops when I was home at Christmas, and IKEA has them too. Tiny plastic beads that you put together in patterns, and then you iron them and they melt together and you have a coaster, or a Christmas tree ornament, or another tiny piece of crap to tread into your carpet. Great rainy/snow-day activity, though.
