Super Illusions Oil Slick Thinking Putty
Product Code: 284-311
Putty with Super-Hero Powers
Unlike any Thinking Putty we've carried so far, Super Illusions is Thinking Putty with super-hero powers! With colors that shift and morph before your eyes based on the angle of light, Super Illusions colors virtually explode out in the sunlight. Plus, this super-shiny version of Thinking Putty has a memory effect so it will tend to untwist itself or pull back when stretched.
Work Your Hands--Work Your Brain
When one of our children was a preschooler, we received the best advice a parent of a kinesthetic child could receive: Let her wiggle. And wiggle she did. I don't think she sat for schoolwork for many years. But sometimes pirouettes and somersaults can be a distraction to other children, especially if you are dealing with a mixed bag of modalities. The visual students in particular will go bonkers trying to be attentive in the presence of a human pogo stick. However, the kinesthetic child can't be attentive without movement. A workable compromise is a handheld fidget of some sort. Over the years we have investigated a number of fidgets; some were silly, some were creepy, and most were flimsy. I broke three in one week and I am not even kinesthetic! So when our shipment of Thinking Putty arrived, I was eager to see how it fared. The results were outstanding.
Bounce, Stretch, Tear, Drip, Snap, Even Shatter Thinking Putty
Thinking Putty is Silly Putty but enhanced with knock-your-socks-off colors that shift or morph completely as you squeeze. All versions of the non-toxic, non-gooey Thinking Putty will bounce, stretch, tear, drip, snap, even shatter. Silicone-based, they will never dry out.
Stress-Relieving, Hand-Exercising Thinking Putty
Thinking Putty is an impressive, adult-sized handful of high-quality moldable putty. Not just for wiggly children, Thinking Putty is also a stress-relieving, soothing slab of super-smooth elastic putty for tense office workers and impatient computer geeks. It also can be used as a hand exercise for guitar players or therapy for arthritic hands. Each tin arrives with an adult-sized one-fifth of a pound of Thinking Putty and a label that says Crazy Aaron's Thinking Putty. They offered to put our names on the label instead, at nearly twice the price, but we decided that we would let Aaron be the crazy one! We offer many mesmerizing versions of thinking putty. Each tin contains enough putty for a couple of children to use at the same time.
From the Manufacturer:
Oil Slick - Everyone knows that oil and water do not mix. Yet when they do, what is known as an oil slick appears. An oil slick creates a colorful layer of oil that floats on the surface of water. This layer is highly reflective due to the light wave interference between oil, air, and water. This undulating refractive index makes for shifting colors that move and change with light. You will see the same effect in Super Oil Slick—an extremely popular Thinking Putty® color that is downright mesmerizing.
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 Preschool through 2nd Grade 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?
