Authentic Mexican jumping beans are found only in the remote mountains of Mexico, where they are known as a "brincador" or "hopper".

Jumping beans are harvested after falling to the ground from small trees (sebastiania pavoniana). It is during this time when rural farmers will collect them, quickly, before the monsoon rains wash them away. We are committed to importing only sustainable quantities, collected by hand - with minimal environmental impact; while providing much needed income for local farmers.


The jumping beans are carefully sorted in Mexico; with only the most active jumping beans selected for export.

  • Safe - inspected by USDA (U.S. Dept. of Agriculture)

  • Jumping beans can remain active for several months.

  • They become more active at warmer temperatures and when exposed to light.

  • Easy to care for - just soak in some water every few weeks.

  • Includes educational game for jumping bean races - learn what makes a Mexican jumping bean jump.

Mexican jumping beans are safe, fun, and educational. They are harmless if eaten by a person, cat, or dog - but they probably will not taste very good:)
