Ohm Beads Magic Frog Preview (Ohm Beads Bead of the Month October 2018)

This Ohm Beads blog brings a completely preview of the upcoming Ohm Beads Magic Frog, Bead of the Month for October 2018.

It’s preview day for the Ohm Beads October 2018 collections! The official release date is October the 4th but pre-orders begin immediately. Due to Ohm10, these designs have already been previewed either in person or via the images that circulated social media. Nevertheless today is the official preview day.

Of course the highlight each month is the new Bead of the Month. For October 2018 comes the Ohm Beads Magic Frog, limited to six hundred and sixty six (666) pieces.

Ohm Beads Magic Frog

While I have no idea of the size of this guy, he comes equipped with wizard staff and hat. His retail price is $70. He comes in special packaging, though there are no images available of that as of yet.

Ohm Beads Magic Frog Pre-Ordering

Pre-orders are always at the discretion of the retailer so they aren’t forced to offer them. For those of you keen to secure your Magic Frog, you’ll find a list of my retail partners below:-

Ohm Beads Magic Frog Summary

I like this bead. It feels more of a witchy take on Halloween than a pumpkin themed design. He’d work really well with the Dirty Magic from last year. There’s also the option of tying him into a more fairy tale themed bracelet. Alternatively I’m quite tempted to try him with my Ohm Beads Wood Ent for a different take on Lord of the Rings.

My single concern is with the quantity available. Halloween is usually super popular with collectors and 666 globally doesn’t feel like a lot.

As always I love to hear from my readers. What are your thoughts on the Ohm Beads Magic Frog and is he a must have for you? Hit the comments and let me know!

    Love the frog, ordered him from glb.

  2. TTLOL

    Good to see the Reseller is GLBs spokes person again re DOTM. You never learn do you GLB

    • endangeredtrolls

      Hi,

      To clarify no one is our spokesperson at all. We had several phone calls today regarding the True Beadz Dangle of the Month. So here is our stance:-

      We will have some available in store during the event. If any are left over they will be offered online. Realistically we’re not expecting any to be left over.

    • Mike

      TTLOL-
      We have learned that not everyone pays attention. The reseller that you mention is NOT a spokesperson for GLB for the last time……

      Mike
      GLB

    Mandy here

    GLB say they dont suport reselling? LIES. Depends who they are doesnt it GLB!!!! If its Truly Admins its fine! U just proved your relationship public!

    • endangeredtrolls

      Good afternoon,

      We haven’t proven anything. We have responded the same way to all phone calls we received regarding the Dangle of the Month.

      That’s simply that we will have some in store for the event and any left over will be offered online. We aren’t taking online orders otherwise as we’re just so busy preparing for Bead Bash.

    • Mike

      Mandy-
      There was nothing proven. Pretty bold to call me a liar. As the owner of GLB I will go out there and say that I don’t agree with said admin selling. With that being said again, I will also say again, we do not support said admin and their habits.

      Mike
      GLB

  4. Faye_T

    It’s interesting that GLB choose not to offer presales for the True Beadz Dangle of the Month and assume no one would notice. My assumption being based on the fact they choose not to say a word. Rather they select an admin to speak for them and happenstance it’s the same admin flipping beads for profit. The very same some believe GLB are deliberately supplying. Sorry Victoria but you messed up here. Will these comments even make live?

    • Mandy

      LOL!

    • endangeredtrolls

      Actually our lack of “public announcement” was more of a miscommunication. We never expected people not to notice and indeed we have been answering phone calls and messages regarding this all day.

      No one is speaking for us. Anyone who has called or messaged us has received the same answer and any of those people could have posted that information along.

    • Mike

      Faye_T-
      No one “selected” an “admin” to speak for us. The bottom line is this, we are preparing for an event. We have lots to do and are doing lots to make sure that everyone that participates both online and instore have a wonderful experience. We have been flooded with phone calls in regards to the DOTM and honestly it just didn’t even seem to be a big deal to make a “special announcement” for something that is the furthest thing from my mind. With that being said and as Victoria has already stated, we can’t control what people write either good or bad about anything. We don’t supply said person with anything. I will stake my company on that……Hope that makes sense.
      Best,
      Mike
      GLB

      • Faye_T

        Then that would be a strong case of naivety but given you know certain people have a propensity for wanting to appear important and to represent other brands, perhaps next time make news known yourselves 🙁

        • endangeredtrolls

          Hi Faye,

          I already mentioned the lack of an announcement (so to speak) was a miscommunication and I should have done one

        • Mike

          There are things at the moment that are a bit more important than the announcement of something we didn’t intend on offering online at any particular point. It isn’t naivety as much as it is picking what is the most important thing to focus on.

  5. Beadgirl

    But u expect us to believe u aren’t giving her beads to resell? BS

    • endangeredtrolls

      Anyone who spoke to any member of GLB today would have received the same information. Any of those people could have posted it. I’m sure more people have and will.

    • Mike

      Beadgirl-
      Pretty Laughable and bold statement from you. I want you to read this as I hope that it is loud and clear…..
      I wouldn’t and haven’t supplied her with beads to resell…..ever.
      Best,
      Mike
      GLB

  6. Debbie

    You cant expect people not to make that connection. Doesnt matter that anyone could have said it. It matters that she said it when you supplying had been asked.

    • Faye_T

      Exactly!

    • Mike

      Debbie-
      We field all phone calls no matter who they are from. It is disheartening that people make “assumptions”.
      Mike
      GLB

  7. OtherDebbie

    Have any of you women stopped for one moment to consider how Victoria feels in any of this?

    I agree it’s unfortunate this person wrote the news but you assume it’s Victoria’s fault all the time. She’s writing articles and a lot recently, she’s photographing, she’s working at Great Lakes. I will stick my neck out and assume for every comment here, there is an equal number of private messages to her.

    You have issues with people and it’s understandable but you aren’t taking it out on those people! You’re taking it out on Victoria and when she has had enough and stops Endangered Trolls what then?

    I’ve sat and read a whole discussion about how she won’t cover other brands now and she won’t cover other releases. One even claimed she missed a bead because it wasn’t covered on ET. Shock damn horror she provided a service that she was never paid for, never thanked for and now it’s gone you’re sad! All she does is work!

    Vent all you want but stop targeting her!

    • Faye_T

      Many of us have apologized to Victoria or said we feel guilty for the position she is placed in. It’s difficult no doubt and at time I have personally hoped to taunt some of the people who should be speaking up into doing so. Alas none will and would rather her take the fall.

      This was GLBs mistake though. They are perfectly aware of existing accusations about them supplying a certain reseller.

      • OtherDebbie

        Bullshit! Not one of you gives a rat’s ass the stress you must cause to her! Was it you who had the nerve a while ago to also state you know how sensitive she is? Then stop and think!!

        • Faye_T

          Yes I know what I said. That doesn’t mean no mistakes were made here from a company attempting to disassociate with resellers.

          • OtherDebbie

            It’s not just this post it’s every example. I agree with you on alot of what you’ve said about a brand but you know what, take it to them! Between you and others here you put her in a bad position over and over and ask stupid things you know she probably can’t answer. Or you know what her boss is here now so have it out with him! Or go tell the admin! I know the group you all talk about you can’t write anything in and I know you are just trying to air feelings about that and the True Beadz mess but consider who else you hurt and stress!

      • Mike

        Faye_T-
        I have to object here. We had no idea that we were labeled as her supplier. That is utter bs. I can honestly say that we have only sold said person a handful of beads over the past year. A really small amount and at the retail price unlike many other stores in Europe whom sell to resellers at a tick over our cost and directly compete with us at the actual retail number.

        Mike
        GLB

        • Faye_T

          I think I was referencing historically. It was widely known she was one of your helpers and she had a consistent supply of Treasures other people would give a back tooth for. At that point in time Treasures only came from GLB. You already addressed the helper issue in previous comments but I hope you understand why the same individual passing along updates from GLB is a little surprising.

          • endangeredtrolls

            Faye literally so many people could have made that post.

          • Mike

            Helping at one event doesn’t make her a “helper” or even “entitled” as that word has been passed through my fingers as well. When our events were a lot smaller, even you could have walked away with a dozen or so Treasures. Couple that with how many events we have a year and you can easily showcase some nice beads. Now that is impossible. The problem with everyone is the word “assumption”. It is the one word that creates a lot of chaos and misunderstanding. All anyone had to ever do was just directly ask. It isn’t like you or anyone else for that matter can’t get a hold of me……

  8. OtherDebbie

    I hope you’re all proud of yourselves.

  9. Nathalia

    GLB arent responsible for what someone does with her beads. Unfortunate this person passed on news but it’s just an answer they gave to everyone. Anyone else and you’d not be moaning. Sometimes 1 + 1 is 2.

  10. Faye_T

    @Mike

    Perhaps next time make sure someone does their job and passes on your stance correctly 🙂

    • endangeredtrolls

      It’s been noted Faye, thanks

  11. Tina

    Wow, after reading this, I have to say.. I’m going to need you all to GET A LIFE… It’s really pitiful that there is so much drama over beads. IF GLB is not doing preorders and are offering during Bead Bash move on, there are other retailers that are offering pre-orders and they have free shipping…

    • Beadgirl

      Wasnt the point

      • Tina

        Yeah, I know.. the point was to create drama, where there was none.

  12. Liseth

    I was excited when i saw all the comments. I thought they were about magic frog. Does anyone have an opinion if they like this bead? I didn’t at first but then my mind went to Harry Potter and I was sold. Can’t wait to use it with some dangles and the cauldron.

    • endangeredtrolls

      I like it. I’m struggling to determine his size but I always have that problem. I think he’s cute. I also think he has a lot of use beyond Halloween 🙂

    • Liz

      Not a HP fan but I want to use it on a witch themed bracelet 🙂 If it’s large enough as the focal. If not Dirty Cauldron will be the focal

      • endangeredtrolls

        I don’t think he’ll be huge though quite how he compares to Dirty Magic I don’t know

  13. kather

    I must be missing something. This IS a post about an OHM bead, right? This obsession with another brand has moved far beyond ridiculous. It has affected Victoria’s blog and one of the very best bead retailers, and an individual who continues to be viciously derided with assumptive accusations.

    I am very sorry to say, Victoria, but this will result in my no longer regularly reading your blog. The poison has spread too far.

  14. Elizabeth

    Wow! I too was hoping to read about the frog. He is really cute! I saw it in person in New Orleans. Can’t wait to add him to my collection. Frog prince, Halloween or just garden wildlife he is very useful and I do not like frogs as a general rule. As for the other thing. I am one of the many who pm’d about the missing preorder. I got the very same answer that was announced.
    Just saying, Love this Ohm frog. Preordered from the always awesome and amazing Great Lakes! Looking forward to bead bash so please pay no attention to the negative and feel the love.

    • endangeredtrolls

      Hey Liz

      And thanks. More importantly right now I just want to get the topic back to this bead as this wasn’t fair on Ohm.

      I like him too but I do like frogs and toads :p I actually have no idea yet how I’ll use him. I was pondering putting him between two Northern Lights.. do they look cauldron contents-y enough ? 😛

      • Elizabeth

        I do think the Northern lights would be perfect for that. Add s pair of witch’s shoes and it sounds perfect!

  15. Rosie

    Wow, can’t you kick them off your blog? I just wanted to read about the cute OHM Frog!! I love him and think he will be a great addition to my other Halloween and Harry Potter bracelet!
    Life is short people, beads are helping me cope with real trauma. GLB I love ya!!

  16. Beth

    I have bought two. I do not like Halloween or anything scary but they will go on my fairy tale bracelet and I hope one day Ohm visit Hans Christian 😉

  17. Veroniek

    I love the bead, and just ordered one. I think it might be around the same size as Year of the Dog, and it looks as if it has as much detail.

    • endangeredtrolls

      I think you’re probably right regarding the sizing 😊 And yes he’s very detailed I think!

  18. Katie

    I’m so confused. Victoria has never been anything but fun, artistic, real, and hard working and she runs a blog that I find wonderful (if a bit hard on my wallet). GLB has been a store that has provided wonderful service and a great product. They have also responded to any of my questions or concerns promptly.
    I am looking forward to the event, even if it is just through the computer. I would imagine that hosting this event required a lot of time and planning.
    As far as this bead, he is really cute. I am not pre-ordering him and I will probably regret that. But, with the event coming up and with all of the wonderful beads to try to purchase, I need to save my money – if only for a couple more days….

    • endangeredtrolls

      There will be lots online for all you lovely ladies and gents shopping via the website 😊

    • endangeredtrolls

      And thank you for the kind words. It’s much appreciated 😊

  19. Laura

    Hello!
    I love the frog and I’m really glad I found a retailer in my country that’s taking pre-orders today^^
    Does anyone know know when and where that lizard (the one shown at the event) will be sold, though? I quite like that one, too.

    • endangeredtrolls

      That’s an exclusive for Australia and sold through the Ohm Together website I think 😊

      • Laura

        Thanks for the info! I’ll see if I can get one and if not, I’ll still be happy with just the frog <3

  20. Lynne

    I like Magic Frog and ordered him from GLB yesterday. Looking forward to receiving him. I’m putting him next to my deadhead pumpkin (I think that was the name). I will probably wear him year round. Victoria, I appreciate all you do. I don’t have any social media accounts (my coice), so I look forward to this blog. 🙂

    • endangeredtrolls

      Yes it was Deadhead! 😀

      Thank you for the kind words. Sometimes I think many of us would be better off without social media. It can be both amazing and terribly cruel.

  21. MaLa SaHan

    firstly, let me say how wonderful the Magic Frog is, wonder what he is holding in his mouth, a magic key perhaps.
    secondly, I will say that I never expected such argumentative and accusing comments being posted on Victoria’s blog, this is not the place to vent. Without Victoria’s blog many of us would not be aware of the wonderful beads and charms available for our enjoyment, whether viewing them here or taking the opportunity to purchase at a retailer of our choice. I appreciate your service, Victoria, and I hope you will continue with your blog.

    • endangeredtrolls

      I thought it was a wizard’s staff but now I have no idea 😀

      Don’t worry, Endangered Trolls is going nowhere 😉

  22. Ellequint

    I am not a fan of cute beads generally. I don’t have a fantasy bracelet or am I into HP bite, I love this frog!

    On another note, please stop the drama. Beads are joyful and my experience with GLB and any interaction I’ve had or witnessed from Victoria has been top knotch! I’m a proponent of voting with my dollar, rather than publicly disparage a business or individual. Any time I have had any concern about my purchases, GLB has stepped up to make it right.
    I sincerely hope that Mike and his staff can rise above the nonsense. It’s been addressed. You’ll never please everyone. As the song says, “Let it Go”…

    • Faye_T

      I have always shopped with GLB and I have a lot of respect for Victoria and Mike both. The objections voiced were based upon their associations (perhaps perceived rather than true) with certain individuals and the actions conducted by those people.

    • Faye_T

      Part of my respect derives from the fact that neither are afraid to stand here and answer criticism in a mature fashion without the rigmarol and dramatics favored both by certain brands and individuals mentioned both here and in previous discussion. You may have noticed from the date stamps, it was dropped. Mike and Victoria took the time to address the concerns already.
