What is Slime?

Toy slime is a viscous, squishy and oozy material, made from a mixture of silicone polymers and chemicals, including boric acid. Powdered fillers and dry pigments (glitter, dyes) might also be added to change the visual aesthetics of the product.



What is magnetic putty?

Magnetic putty is a toy based on silicone polymers that have unusual physical properties. It bounces, but it breaks when given a sharp blow, and it can also flow like a liquid. Unlike other putty toys, magnetic putty contains ferric substances, which give it magnetic qualities.
