MIASTAR Color Changing Heat Sensitive Putty Slime

Squishy slime with all the colors

Handling will activate the colors of this heat-sensitive slime to change and fascinate your child. As soon they put it down, the colors will gradually revert to restart the process. The soft mud stimulates the innovative part of the brain to create models by folding and pulling the putty, and even though it's for children three years and older, adults can enjoy it too.
