I'm looking for advice on good safety eye online stores. No stores around me sell them, and the last ones i bought from glasseyesonline.com I can't get the backs onto them. Do you know of any that don't go on so hard? I'm a weak little woman living on my own, lol.

You can order them through Etsy from a seller called "chezmichelle."  She also has a website called "suncatcher eyes."  She's pretty inexpensive and her eyes are all hand painted.

if the eyes are plastic, put them on a chop stick and take a lighter to them to soften them up, just a few seconds. They will pop right one.

Thanks guys! I saw the suncatcher eyes site awhile ago, they are really nice! I will probably order a batch from there next. In the meantime, I held the washer in a pair of pliers and shoved scissors up the middle and twirled them around until they were a bit wider. I don't give the toys I make to kids under 3, in fact most of them have gone to people in their 20's so far Tongue I gave my son one but embroidered the eyes on, I just like the "cute factor" that safety eyes add!

You can get even cheaper ones that you can paint yourself at sunshine crafts (I think that's what it's called.) There's a link on the first page of the poppet along in misc.

I bought 2 different sizes of clear eyes last time I needed them. I bought 15mm and 18mm. I'd like to get some 12mm next but money is tight for me.
What I liked about this website is it was within my price range and the shipping was really quick and I was able to buy in bulk.

I have a discount craft supply store near me called craft 2000 they have a large assortment of safety eyes for about 45-89 cents a package and most packages come with about 2- 6 pairs of eyes. If you are intersted i can help you out by going out there and getting them for you and we can work something out. Either that or i know that the store has a catalog its just really hard to get a hold of i can do some research for you and get the catalog for you. The only bad thing about this store is that because their prices are so cheep colors are limeted to orange and brown cat yes in about 5 sizes they have solid black in every size, brown teddy bear eyes in about 3 sizes and some wiggly frog eyes that are pretty big but super cute. If you are intersted let me know and i will help you get what you need i know what it is like not being able to get what you need( origainally from a smal town with only a walmart.)

Anyone know a (fairly cheap) place to get eyes online, or in the UK?
I've seen the cheap US sites, but post and packing is usually about $10 to over here, and I'm a poor student.
