Gak & Floam

Gak & Floam

One of my favorite feelings I get when reviewing toys is the flashback from my own childhood.  For some reason I love seeing toys and remembering the gazillion years ago that I played with toys.  There is actually a museum in Philly called The Please Touch Museum where they have cases filled with toys from the 'good old days'.  You know what I'm talking about, right?  Like Pogo Balls, My Little Pony, Gem and even the old 'boxed' Nintendo rocked my world as a kid.  But now as an adult the old fashioned toys that we once spent hours on end with are so hard to find.

Needless to say-you know how excited I was when I was watching Nickelodeon with my kid and saw the commercials for Gak & Floam and its return!  Awesomeness! 

I love this product for so many reasons.  (Let me tell you that being embedded in my carpet is not one of them…so buyer beware!!!  It's like playdoh in the respect that it does.not.come.out.)

But when Nickelodeon sent me some Gak & Floam to play with I knew it was gonna rock out!  

Floam is my favorite.  I have to admit.  It's probably because there is more fun to be make with it.  

Gak on the other hand?  Well...it's just that.  GAK.  Goo.  Ugh.  Ew.  

I love what the Urban Dictionary has for the definition of Gak.  

gak
 
A popular Nickolodeon slime, available in many variations such as glow in the dark, speckled, cocoanut smelling, etc. Useful for making fart noises, grossing out friends.

 

Me personally?  I like to sniff it.  And make fart sounds.  

What?  Me, immature?  Well...sometimes.  Shhh.  Don't tell anyone.  It's just me being a kid again.  You should join me.  It's kinda fun.
