Nickelodeon Gak & Floam Are So Fun!

For children growing up in the 1990’s, Nickelodeon’s Floam and Gak were two of the coolest playtime staples, beloved for their uncanny ability to entertain kids for hours on end.  Now, Nickelodeon’s Floam and Gak are back…  and they’re better than ever!

Completely reformulated to make playtime and clean-up a cinch for a new generation of families, new Nickelodeon Floam and Gak are two unique reusable compounds, each designed to encourage creative thinking and open-ended play:

•    New Nickelodeon Floam is an incredible, reusable molding compound.  Mold, fold and roll new Nickelodeon Floam into any creation imaginable – the possibilities are endless!

•    New Nickelodeon Gak is a stretchy, squishy collectible compound.  Gak can be squeezed, stretched, bubbled and more – once kids pick up Gak, they won’t want to put it down!

My Children are big fans of Nickelodeon TV Shows as are the Teach and I. This channel creates cartoons and children's shows that we actually don't mind watching with them which is why when a review came up for Floam & Gak and we heard it was being branded with Nickelodeon's name, we were in.

We spend at least an hour a day playing with both. We aren't creative geniuses creating spectacular models like dinosaurs, planes, clocks or whatever else you can see in the videos on You Tube for these products we mostly use them to blow bubbles, create funky sounds, squish them for stress relief or play hand in seek by hiding something inside the Floam. We were doing this when the kids were 3 years old as a way to do sensory play.

The kids enjoy playing with them and oddly enough mixing the colors or getting another color on them is completely against the rules. None of us like it so we don't do it. It is strange I never said don't but they refuse to do it. So it is a win win.

The 411 by Maria and the Kids:


The kids and I like the Goo factor. We enjoy slime and all that stuff so this is fun for us. 
The price is really good.You can get a 4 pack of Floam for under $20.00. 

We love that if you drop it on the floor and kids will do this unfortunately more than once, you can simply rinse it and it is fine. 

We love that it never leaves residue on our hands. Well except our red Floam, for some reason, it leaves some red on our hands. None of the others do that.

The Cons:
We don't love the smell but it isn't terrible. Goddess wishes that the yellow smelled like banana. In fact when she smelled it she said that she only did it because 'it looks like it will smell like bananas.
