Caitlin has been talking about Glam Goo for months and we have managed to distract her so far by making homemade slime or the foam dough in the Project Mc2 Ultimate Lab Kit so when we were offered a Glam Goo Slime & Accessory Confetti Pack to review, she was very excited.
Slime lovers can make their own slime fashion accessories by filling the bow bracelet and the bunny charm with goo decorated with their own combination of shimmer powder, sparkles and coloured balls and scent them with the peach scent “So Peachy”.
There are several Glam Goo sets to choose from but this particular set comes with:-
- small container with fluffy slime
- bow bracelet
- bunny charm
- 2 pots of slime decorations (coloured balls and sparkles)
- 2 coloured shimmer powders
- 1 scent
The instruction leaflet comes with some suggested combinations for your Glam Goo mixing session – for example, there’s Rainbow Sherbet which requires mixing the goo with the So Peachy Scent and adding the Dance Mix (coloured balls) and Have Fun – one of the shimmer powders.
Caitlin was happy to do her own thing and spent a happy half hour mixing and playing with the Glam Goo which has a strangely sticky consistency, slightly different from homemade slime.
You will need to cover the play area as the contents of the kit tend to go everywhere and obviously you will need to make sure that the powders, balls and goo don’t go near mouths or eyes. There is also a possibility of some colour transfer so a craft apron wouldn’t be a bad idea.
Whilst Caitlin did enjoy playing with this, it is really, in my opinion, a one-time-only toy. There is not a huge amount of Glam Goo to play with and once you have filled the bow bracelet and/or the bunny charm with your mix, that’s about it.
Oddly, the bunny charm does not come with a clip or loop to attach it to anything which makes it a little redundant once you’ve filled it unless you have a necklace chain or keyring.
The scent is a tiny bottle of liquid which appears half full and which, to be honest, I couldn’t smell. Ours was called So Peachy and although Caitlin said she could smell peach, I certainly couldn’t.
The age range is 6+ and children under 3 shouldn’t be given it due to the risk of a choking hazard. I would say 6 or 7 is probably the top of the age range for this product. Adult supervision is recommended and I would certainly second that.
We would have preferred a much bigger pot of the Glam Goo as this is the thing that the kids really want to play with. Not surprisingly if you don’t put the goo back in the pot and put the lid on it, it dries up completely.
The bow bracelet looks quite pretty once filled but we are still not quite sure what to do with the bunny!
At around the £23 mark, I think the Glam Goo Slime & Accessory Confetti Pack is quite expensive for what you get, however, I can see that hardcore Glam Goo fans might still love it.
We’ll be sticking to the homemade slime.
