I have to admit my kids loved this one but I hated it. I don’t like messy things that are potential hazards for my baby. I was given Buckets O Fun’s Yuck products to review, it is a super polymer and it is generally pretty safe however my 19 month old kept trying to eat it because she thought it looked like food. When fully hydrated the Yuck is ok but since it absorbs water the dehydrated powder is very dangerous to little kids.
However I feel that this product would be great for teens and even adults for some good old fashioned messy fun!
We did try to grow a seed in the saucy yuck (four consistencies are available, saucy, sticky, chunky, and snowy) but it never sprouted.
I feel this would be an excellent product for us in a few years when my baby is a bit older. Yuck can be dyed and it makes quite a lot of product when hydrated. I see pink snowball fights in the not so distant future.
The Yuck product’s are easily rinsed off with a hose but do not wash it off in the sink as it can clog the drain. It will dry out and rehydrate with the rain but eventually will biodegrade, so it makes a great gardening product to prevent underwatering your plants. I think that is what appeals more to me.
Yuck runs from $16 per pound for the chunky stuff to $600 for 50 pounds of the sticky Yuck. Buckets O Fun is a company selling products geared toward fun activities for group events.
