If your children are like mine, then the title of this post is all they will need to hear to love it. As soon as I mention the world ‘slime’ in our house, both girls know there’ll be a gooey, sticky mess for them to enjoy. That’s why I just didn’t have it in me to turn down a review of the new Poopsie Slime Surprise, my littles would never have forgiven me. I must admit, I was a little curious too, unicorns and slime sounds like a very magical combination after all!
Poopsie Slime Surprise is available to buy at Smyths, The Entertainer and Argos and is priced at £9.99. It’s the ideal stocking filler, or birthday gift for the kids. At that price, it’s a go to present for when the kids deserve a little treat too. It comes with all of the ingredients you needs to make sweet-smelling, sparkly unicorn poop that’s sure to keep the kids happy and entertained for many slimy hours!
What do we think –
As my girls are still a little on the younger side, I decided to make the slime up myself. It comes with all of the slime ingredients attached to the outside of the packet, whilst the mixing and storing equipment is fastened inside. I found the instructions really easy to follow and had the mixture made up in no time. The girls’ could help with some of the shaking up too which they thoroughly enjoyed.
After leaving the slime to set, it was time to add the ‘unicorn magic’, which when kneaded into the mixture changes the colour and adds a little sparkle! The girls could help with this part of the slime creation too, they were soon elbow deep in green slime! The bit I liked most about the creation process is that you are provided with a little bottle of scent, which makes the slime smell really nice. This means your hands don’t get covered with the usual, odd smell that comes with slime making.
As soon as my two got stuck into the slime, they were absolutely mesmerised. This slime is really sticky and gooey, so they were able to squash it and stretch it until their little hearts were content. They had a lot of fun and were absolutely covered in it by the time they had finished, as was my dining room table!
You’ll be pleased to know though, that this slime cleans up really easily. It came right out of their clothes after a spin through the washer. It wiped off of my table with ease and it also washed off of the girls hands with very little effort. For that reason I give this product a big thumbs up. I’ve had to remove stuck on slime far too often in my parenting career and this was a refreshing clean up in comparison! This set also comes with a mini key ring that you can store the slime in, so when the kids have had enough it doesn’t just get left to dry out.
Overall, the girls and I have been super impressed with Poopsie Slime Surprised. They aren’t words that I’d ever thought would come out of my mouth, but it was easy, fun and the girls had a blast!
