Awful pictures, but I hope you see the difference in size.

I can take comparison pics tomorrow evening. It's a great deal smaller than Rolling Troll.
How sweet. sunny 
Have a strong run and finish in good health.
Have you ever taken a bead on a marathon run before?
Thank you. No I haven't, as this was only my second marathon. Sadly it didn't go well this time, despite the leopard... had to pull out at kilometer 36 with severe pain in my left knee. Neutral

The leopard looks starving. It should eat the rolling troll and gain some pounds tongue

At least it looks a bit more cat like (starved cat) and less like a wooden puppet than it did in the stock pictures.

I'm really disappointed with thoughts...the design is wonderful but I thought the dark lines were indentations...I don't like hollow beads and I think it might be one that dents like Spot or Stay positive? Sad  Such a shame...

I've heard of one Thoughts bead that was a bit collapsed on itself. But I don't think it is as fragile as Spot or Stay Positive. I can hold it firmly between my fingers and I don't feel any 'give'; it does not seem flimsy.

I've never had any problems with Stay Positive, but was shocked to see what happened to my Thoughts bead (that turned into a two-piece-puzzle).
I had high hopes and loved it from the design, but don't like the way it was made/finished by TB. For me it is too light weighted and does not play in the class of the old style silvers like classic or joyful.

Not good to hear about the thoughts bead. That is the one I like. I was hoping it was like an old classic Trollbead.
My LD hasn't gotten them in yet so I haven't seen the beads IRL.

Sorry Catsworld...I hadn't looked closely (although remembered it being very light but loved the design) but ordered online...Received an email to say that they thought the one they had was a bit squashed so they would order another...When it arrived I was very disappointed with the weight and I'm afraid it will be going back... I've bought a pre-loved joyful instead to complete my project...

Neutral  I thought thoughts would be really heavy judging by the size and because the 'slits' are a lot narrower than on the design sketch. I thought that would give it more stability. Obviously not enough Shocked !

it is not a heavy bead, I am wearing it on a necklace, don't hope it will come apart or be dented, normally I am very careful with my beads, if it will come apart, I am sure my jeweller is going to replace it but of course, that is not what I want. I really love the thought behind it AND the design...
