Default Anyone remember the name of this craft/toy thing?

I'm trying to remember the name of a sort of craft set/toy thing I used to get when I was wee. Basically you got a metal frame, and some wee plastic beads. You poured the plastic beads into the metal frame then put it in the oven, the plastic melted and created a stained glass effect.

The end results look like this:

The reindeer and I think the "season's greetings" things are, I'm pretty sure, made of the same stuff, we've got that same reindeer and I made it.

That rang a very faint bell.

Can't remember them, but google throws up suncatcher as a possible name, though that seems to be American.

amazon.com

Some random site.

EDIT
D'oh just realised from your link that you already knew that. Oh well.

Looks like 'em. Makit and Bakit. Not what we called them but that'll do it nicely- thanks!

Showing my sensitive feminine side here...dont tell anyone but...

I was flicking through a magazine the other day, ASDA one I think, and it said that you can do the same thing with boiled sweets....it was for christmas decorations I think - they got a biscuit, cut a hole out of it, popped a boiled sweet in, then baked it in the oven....created a stained glass effect christmas decoration....

I've had a few beer, and I know I am going to regret reading this post in the morning...
Billy.

Don't think that'd work for what I have in mind... But it'd be tasty
