More Needles !!!!!

About a year ago, I got a pack of 22 crocheting needles off the internet for about 7 dollars.
My grandma said that she really liked that kit and, asked me to find one that was the same as mine. So, I went on the internet and found the same type of kit also for about 7 dollars.
This is what it looks like.

Dont they look so similar?
