What is this Galaxy slime putty? It’s a slimy liquid, but you can also bounce it on the table! Older kids and even adults will be amazed at the instant transformation of this oozy, gooey slime into a solid ball and there’s science behind it!
The secret is that the Galaxy putty is a viscoelastic non-Newtonian fluid! For the people in the crowd who aren’t versed in fluid mechanics (or who don’t have time to Google it), this means that this slime putty doesn’t react in the way we would normally expect a liquid to act when we put it under pressure. If you tip a glass of water on the ground what happens? It spills into a puddle of course! Well, a viscoelastic fluid might form into a solid ball as it hits the ground instead – it’s really fascinating!
Beyond the science part, Galaxy putty is simply fun to touch and play with exactly because it doesn’t act like water or other liquids. It’s a strangely slimy sensation that makes it hard to put down and you’ll find yourself experimenting with pulling it apart, watching it run down hard surfaces and making it go into a solid and back to a liquid.
Galaxy putty is an affordable science toy that kids can buy with their own pocket money! Parents and grandparents add a few Galaxy putty balls to your cart now: they make excellent small gifts for stocking stuffers or Easter basket fillers!
