Watch: Unboxing the Latest in Original SUPER COOL SLIME!

Written by

The power of SLIME has been compelling kids for the past few years, and what I thought might be a passing fad has shown no signs of letting up - especially here at Rock Father HQ. In our house it's 9-year-old Addie who holds the position of resident slime enthusiast and chemist, and because of that she's been asking for months if she could create her own "Slime Channel" on YouTube. Since I'm not a big fan of many elements of the YouTube culture (despite being a creator on the platform), I said she could have a "show" on my channel: Addie's Slime Videos. But I actually launched it on Facebook first (where it's actually done better), and this week the initial episode went live. For its debut, Addie cracks into a box of Super Cool Slime from the folks at Kangaroo Manufacturing - an assortment of ready-mixed slimes that I pegged as potential stocking stuffers for my 2018 Holiday Wish Guide™. Check this out!

Despite the usual habit of looking at slime as something that can be "gross," there's a lot of science involved, and that's something that Addie has very much enjoyed - playing with the different ways to change color, texture and consistency. What I like about these is that they're pre-mixed (no mess!), affordably-priced and offer something different. Of course, we will be making some stuff from scratch when Addie goes hands-on with the Original Super Cool Slime Lab in a future video.
