Bath time is an event which Jess looks forward to every single time. For sure she is an actually water baby. We are always looking for different products to make it even more fun and special. So when the lovely people at zimplikids contacted me and asked if I would like to review a range of their products I jumped at the chance. I have seen gellibaff advertised when it first came out however, I have never actually tried any of their products.
Slime is a product which I have not let Jess try at home for a couple of reasons. One I really can not stand the mess which it makes so I thought it would be perfect for her to do in the bath. For some reason, in my head, I thought it was going to be super hard to do. I have no reason why I thought this at all. It could not be more simple all you need to do is sprinkle the powder in the bath water . Then simply watch as the water magically turns into gooey slime. This is the same for the gellibaff version as well.
It is so simple to make however, it does take about 15 minutes to thicken so you may want to take this into account. For example if your child does not take long baths you might want to do it so when they get in it’s as thick. This is what I did for Jess and she still spent around 25/30 minutes in the slime bath. It did take her a while to get used to the feel she did keep screaming and saying it felt strange so this is something else to be aware of. You really need to keep an eye on your child while using this product. More than you normally would when they are in the bath I would say.
Jess adored it however, it can be very slippy and this is an element which she did end up struggling with. I had to keep picking her up and this did cause her to be a little bit stressful for her. The worst part of the slime baff for us was actually how slippy she was when she got out. She did have to shower which is something which she hates to do. This is something which you need to be aware of if your child hates the shower as well.
Unlike gellibaff slime baff does not actually need anything to disolve this. You only need to add about 30l of water I think it said to remove it from the bath. For us who only used half a packet and half the amount of water because Jess is not a fan of very deep baths still due to her age. It still look us around the half an hour mark to disolve this. This may put me off purchasing it in the future because it seems to take a lot time to have a bath even though Jess enjoyed it. It took around an hour to run the bath and remove it. If Jess asks to use it in the future I am not going to refuse and deny her.
If you are worried about it not been safe I know some people have problems with products like this. Gellibaff and Slime Baff are 100% safe. They can be purchased from a range of retailers including supermarkets, the entertainer and Amazon.
Have you tried Slime Baff if so what did you think?
