When I was asked to review this Anti – Bacterial slime from Canal Toys I jumped at the chance. I then thought about it after and wondered if I’d made a big mistake. I mean what could be worse a three year old and slime. I however decided it was worth the risk and I was totally intrigued about it being anti – bacterial. It was a massive hit! It is now her favourite thing to play with.
Personal health and hygiene have become a prominent theme in 2020/2021.
Sanitising hands is now promoted heavily in public places e.g. retail outlets and
schools. Understanding the importance of good personal hygiene can be a challenge for some children. Typical dispensers can be awkward to use, especially for
younger hands. Positioned for adults in public areas, not for kids who rely on an
adult for application. And half of the stuff is just too watery for them to try and hold onto and it just pours straight off the hands.
Anti-bacterial Slime is a unique product, the first of its type in the market, a
child-safe, anti-bacterial slime that kills 99.9% of germs! Use over and over, the
anti-bacterial properties last up to 1 month. Alcohol-free.
When the package arrived my little one was very excited and both tubs of slime came out together. My little girl actually sat on the floor and played with the slime for a good hour. It was really good to see, as she was using lots of different language for what she could do with it. The slime is so much fun, tacky and stretchy. She had lot’s of fun stretching and squishing the slime between her hands. It doesn’t leave your hands feeling sticky afterwards either, which is great for when I had to handle it.
We received the green and purple slime, Lottie has already asked for the other colours as she loves it so much.
Each tub is the perfect size to keep in a bag and can be easily opened by little ones when needed. So should be great to pop in your bag to take out on those day trips. How jealous would everyone else be when they see your little one cleaning their hands with slime?
We have had our slime open for a few weeks now, so it’s nearly time to buy some more, (which you would have to do with hand sanitiser), We definitely will be buying more as its a no fuss wash your hands time when needed, but also a great toy. The reason for us buying more is to keep up with the anti bacterial properties and not because of anything being wrong with the slime . The slime has stayed nice and wet for the duration of us having it open. I have previously seen slime start to harden around the edges, but this does not do that.
On another note, my little one got it too close too close to her skirt and was mortified at having a small blob of purple slime attached to her new skirt. The slime came off quite easily by peeling it away, it did leave a small purple mark, but once washed it came out totally clean, which doesn’t always happen with other craft/art materials.
