Nickelodeon’s Floam & Gak Review

Floam is the incredible, reusable molding compound that will keep you creating for hours on end!  Mold your own creations or transform almost anything into a Floam-covered masterpiece. Roll it, mold it, cover it — that’s the way you Floam it.  After you’re done, squish Floam back into its container and use it again and again or let your creation harden overnight and keep it forever!  Floam was invented and made almost 20 years ago.  But that Floam is sooo two decades ago!  Our Floam formulation is the best-molding, best-feeling, most friendly, easy-to-clean Floam ever made (and this comes straight from the world’s premier Floam expert, the man who invented it all those years ago!).

Review – As soon as we received the package with the Floam and Gak we gathered up all the neighborhood kids for a test party at our house!  Most of them had never even heard of Floam or Gak, but the bright, colorful packages had them really excited.  We followed the instructions to a tee about getting the Floam and Gak ready to play with.  I did not want a sticky mess all over my house!  After kneading them with clean hands, they were way easier to handle and not as sticky…except for the red color!  I don’t know what I did wrong, but I could not get the red Floam or the red Gak to cooperate!  Even after the kids left, I played with it for another 20 minutes and still couldn’t get it to work.  All of the other colors were fine!  The kids had a blast!  My daughters loved the Floam and had fun making a monster and Mickey Mouse.  The boys had a goal of seeing how loud they could make their Gak!  I felt like a kid again playing with these products that I had growing up!  I would recommend Floam and Gak (any color but red!) to any kid who loves making things with their hands and any parent who wants something to keep their kid busy for hours!


Gak is the incredible squishable, squeezable, squashable, stretchable, bounceable, ploppable, poppable stuff! Smoosh it, Twist it, Bubble It, Mix it… and make wacky Gak sounds!  Once kids pick up Gak, they won’t want to put it down. Gak’s awesome “Splat” container lets you make all sorts of wacky sounds when you squish the Gak around. Stretch it all the way across a room. Squeeze it through your fingers. Blow a giant bubble then pop it! Press it into a plastic cup and listen as it makes the loudest frrrrrrrt sounds to make kids laugh hysterically!

Gak and Floam can be purchased on Amazon, Target or Toys R Us.  They retail for $6.99 each or you can get a starter pack for $34.95.

That is very strange about the red Floam and Gak! Our children enjoy Play-Doh, so I am sure they would love this Floan/Gak! Many thanks,  Cindi

How funny, I remember playing with Gak and Floam when I was a kid, but didn't realize it was still around, lol!  I might have to get some for my girls- I'm sure they'd love it!
