Recently we got to check out Crayola Slyme. Have you ever seen it before? Crayola Slyme from Play Visions is probably the best slime we have ever had. I am being totally honest about that. It’s non-sticky and less messy than other slimes my kids have ever played with. Now I am not going to lie. It can be messy. It is slime after-all. But it also depends on how it’s played with.
The first thing I want to say about Crayola Slyme is that it comes in the cutest canister. The canisters are 4.23 oz containers. They are also designed to look like Crayola crayons. These containers are also really durable too which means that when the slime is overused and in needing of being thrown out, these containers can be saved to use for other things. Crayola Slyme comes in a variety of really great colors too and they are Crayola signature colors! And of course each one is also glittery!
Playing with Crayola Slyme
Getting the Slyme out of the container was pretty easy. You can let it ooze out or just scoop it out. It claims that it is non-sticky. For the most part that is true. The first couple times my son played with it, it was a little sticky at first. Not overly sticky though. After a few times of playing with it, it was pretty non-sticky. My son was happy about that. He loves slime but he would prefer not to have it stick between his fingers when he is playing with it.
The texture of it is pretty awesome. My kids have had tons of different kinds of slime over the years and this one has been my personal favorite. We have had limes that were really runny, too gooey and sometimes hard to play with. The consistency of Crayola Slyme is a little different than some others we have had. Crayola Slyme reminds me of a slime and a putty. It’s almost like it’s in-between the two. However, it doesn’t snap like putty does. I think that’s the reason it’s less messy than other slimes we have had.
It’s fun to hold, stretch, touch, etc. It’s easy to remove from the container. And it’s also easy to put back into the container for storage.
There was a time when I thought I would ban all slime from my house. My youngest used to get it everywhere. But he got better at playing with it and I didn’t mind it so much. I don’t mind it at all anymore really. I think it’s great for sensory play, and it’s also really relaxing too. Relaxing for kids and adults to be honest. Yep, I sometimes catch myself playing with it myself. There have been times that my son has come home from school in a bad mood. Later I would see him playing in the back room where we have a table set up for our kids to play with this kind of stuff. He just seems like he gets in a better mood afterward.
It’s like those “calm down” bottles. I have made some of them before. If you have no idea what I am talking about it’s basically a clear water bottle filled with water, oil, glitter and other tiny things that they can shake up. Or move around to find certain tiny things that are floating in the glitter.
Overall I think it’s really fun. Less messy than other slime. The colors are pretty and vibrant. They are glittery but the glitter does not get stuck to hands. It’s never happened once so if you are worried about glittery hands afterward, you don’t have to worry about that. It’s just really fun to play with!
You can buy Crayola Slyme at specialty stores. I have seen it at Hobby Lobby myself. If you can’t find it in stores, you can also buy it on Amazon. You can buy single canisters or you can buy them in multi-packs. Suggested retail price is $3.99 to $18.99. Singles $3.99, 3pk $12.99, and 6pk $18.99.
