Mixed By Me Glow Thinking Putty Kit
Glow in the Dark Mixed by Me Kit
In 2014 we introduced our first customized putty, Pacific Surf, followed by our 2015 release, Northwest Rainforest. There was a lot of trial and error before what we envisioned in our head became stunning reality. And then came the naming process. Not quite as difficult as naming your own child, but with a boatload of people weighing in, it was an adventure.
Now your child gets to enjoy the same design experience with Mixed by Me, Thinking Putty’s first creative kit. Start with an idea: “I want a putty that reminds me of scuba diving with Uncle Tim.” Then, using the instructional mat; one of the five small tins of clear putty; and the yellow, red, and blue concentrated putties; he will mix and match until he arrives at that just-right blue-green color. Enhance it with a smidgen of Glow-ifier and enjoy its awesome green glow by night. Or maybe your child wants to capture the color of that crazy metallic car he saw while shopping. Start with another tin of clear putty, recreate the color, add a bit of the Shimmer-izer and a touch of the Sparkle-izer and voila, instant success. And like all Thinking Putty, every special color created will never dry out. With five tins of clear putty, three concentrated color putties, three special effect putties, an instructional mat, and labels to customize, all he needs is a colorful imagination and some cool names!
Glow in the Dark Mixed by Me Kit includes:
5 small tins hand packed with clear Thinking Putty (twist off the lid to remove!)
3 concentrated primary-colored putties
3 special effect putties
1 tin to hold your components
6 colored pencils
5 extra labels for your tins
1 instructional mat with formula suggestions from Crazy Aaron
Note About Clean Up
Like its cousin Silly Putty, Thinking Putty does stick to fabric, hair, and carpet, so keep an eye on where your little guy puts it! For a tidier option for your wiggler and fidgeter, check out Mad Mattr, which is part of our Pre-K and Kindergarten kits. However, if you do find yourself in a predicament and need to remove stray Thinking Putty, try these tips from the manufacturer: There is Thinking Putty stuck in my hair/on my skin/on the fabric of my shirt/pants/sofa/rug/sheets. How can I remove it?

I totally didn't mind dropping $20 on this as an extra gift for my girls. My older two shared it. Crazy Aaron's is the best thinking putty on the market, in my opinion. This Mixed by Me Thinking Putty kit doesn't actually make THE PUTTY itself. The putty is pre-made, but clear. The kids choose between colorant, glitter/shimmer, and glow additives to mix in to design the putty of their dreams. It's quick, not messy, and your kit will be gone before you know it - but we're glad we did this one for them. It was a fun afternoon!
This stuff is cool -- when you let it sets it looks liquid. We had a lot of fun mixing colors and testing out the glow in the dark colors. Warning don't get it on cloth or couch....otherwise very fun!
My daughter loved making different kinds of putty with this kit. She was able to fidget with the putty while listening to other lessons, and it helped her focus on her lessons.
Totally fun, don't plan on them being patient for this one. He wanted to make it, first thing after opening our timberdoodle kit delivery. And we did!
This was such a fun project! My daughter loved it! Its great that she can make multiple colors and choose which one she wants for when she does her reading and no mess!
