Earlier in the year a friend told me about "Gelli Baff" ... a product that turns water into a jelly-like goo and back into water. I searched for it in lots of stores but couldn't find it at any of the listed suppliers. I stumbled across "Gelli Baff" at my local toy store when they discounted it recently.
In the "Gelli Baff" box you get two packets of powder. It is a simple application. Here's what to do...
Miss 7 and Mr 3 were really excited. Miss 7 leapt into the bath and immediately LOVED it. Mr 3 dipped a toe and said "yuck...urgh it's slimey" and then was taken to the shower.
Here's the "Gelli Baff" in play...
To really get an idea of the texture here is a short video.
To turn the goo back into water...
This is a pretty cool product and I can see it used in a sensory play tray at home, childcare or preschool. It would also be great in an outdoor wading pool in summer.
I forgot to mention the colour changes as you add the "step 2" powder so we went from yellow to green. There are other colour options too. This will also interest those who like science looking at density and colour. The colour does not stain the bath or your child.
Miss 7 reports that it felt like a "hug" in the water. Mr 3 is a bit tactile defensive (reacts to touch sensations) and did not enjoy the experience. We found that a rinse off in clean water was necessary for both kids after playing with "Gelli Baff".
