I remember the Nickelodeon Floam and Gak from when I was much younger. It’s so cool that it’s back and I can share it with my boys! Now they are a bit younger then what it’s recommended for. But they are still having a blast with it!
Gak may be my favorite. It’s now made with a new formula that makes it easier to use and less messy!! Unless you put it on your shirt like Hunter did have to toss it. User error on that one! Gak though is awesome because it can be squeezed, squashed, stretched, twisted, rolled and so much more! It also makes some super funny sounds when you get it back into it’s air-tight container. Think farting. My boys were laughing so hard when it was “farting”. Though Landon wouldn’t touch it after the first touch… I guess he thought it was too weird, but Hunter loved it!
Gak comes in the following colors: Rebel Red, You Blue It, Yakkity Yellow, Goo Green, Tickled Pink and Purple Panic. The suggested retail price is $6.99 each.
Floam was a huge hit for both of my kids though. We had a ton of fun just creating different things. Hunter even made the planet Earth! I was amazed how Floam didn’t leave really any mess at all. The color do mix together so if you don’t like that, I would stay away from Floam. But I don’t mind, mix it up, have fun, it’s all good! You can get really creative with Floam, I just had fun flattening it and creating snowmen for the boys. Landon has asked to play with this again a few times since the initial playing with.
Floam is sold in the following colors: Rockin’ Red, Blazin’ Blue, Electric Yellow, Glimmer Green, Posh Pink and Purple Power. The suggested retail price is $6.99 each.
Gak and Floam are both non-toxic, non-staining, phthalate-, latex- and BPA-free. You can buy them at Target, Toys R Us, Bed Bath and Beyond, A.C. Moore and Walgreens. Amazon also sells Gak and Floam on their website!
