We recently received a box containing every child’s dream of messy play fun from Zimpli Kids to review, and knowing Mila loves watching the YouTube videos of the Gelli Baff and Slime Baff, I couldn’t wait to show her!
I let the girls open the box and watched their little faces light up with excitement, it really was like Christmas had come early!
First up was the Gelli Worlds Fantasy pack (this comes in this Fantasy Pack version or a rather cool Dino version) which I knew would be a hit as soon as I spotted the unicorns. These packs contain:
- 1 inflatable play tray
- 5 bags of Gelli powder
- 8 pieces of fantasy toys (fairy’s, unicorns – all the girly goodness!)
The inflatable play tray was easy to blow up, and the girls have enjoyed playing with this since too. It can be used for any other water/sand/messy play you can think of, sitting in (apparently), and can be used as a great bowl for the slime too!!
You only need one bag of Gelli powder per play and I filled the tray up with water about a quarter way, the more water you use the more watery the Gelli and I found this to be the perfect amount, I then and added the powder. I used cold water the first time and I do recommend using warm water (never use boiling!) instead as the formula sets quicker and the girls hands didn’t get quite so cold.
I mixed the powder and water together for about 5 minutes with my hands to get the perfect consistency for them to start playing.
They sat and played for hours, got up to wash their hands and have some lunch then got right back in! I even managed a hot coffee and undisturbed lunch myself! Thank you Zimpli Kids! 😘
This really is a perfect rainy day activity, ideal Christmas/Birthday gift and fun for all the family. I of course got stuck in and loved it – I can’t wait to pop some in the girls paddling pool next summer too!!
I have to say my heart did skip a beat when they started ‘splashing’ but it cleans up really easily and doesn’t stain – even cream carpets, which my girls kindly put to the test for you!
- Mixing bowl full of water to wash hands after play
- Big towel to dry hands
- Kitchen roll to mop up any spillages of the Gelli or water
- Rolled up sleeves!
Once all the fun has been had and it’s time to put it away, you simply pour it all down the toilet. It flushes away easily without clogging the toilet as the formula turns back to liquid on contact with water. Simply rinse out the play tray and that’s that!
