TOS Review ~ Yuck


The girls were so excited when we found out we were selected to review Yuck by Buckets-O- Fun. I didn't realize until experiment day that we did not have the prized Sticky Yuck, but the show mush go on and things got pretty yucky around here anyways.

Just what is Yuck?
Yuck products are different types of slime made from  acrylic polymers.  Yuck is available in 4 different consistencies:

Chunky Yuck: It looks like rock salt when dry and hydrates to the size of machine ice cubes.

  YUCK 014
Saucy Yuck: It starts out as a powder and when hydrated has the consistency of applesauce.

YUCK 015
Snowy Yuck: When dry it has the consistency of sugar. When hydrated it looks like slushy snow.

Sticky Yuck: When hydrates it has the consistency of snot.

We received the free sample pack from Buckets-O-Fun and my girls had a blast with the Yuck.  The Saucy and Snowy Yuck became yucky pretty quickly but the Chunky Yuck takes 24 hours to fully hydrate. Because we didn’t receive any Sticky Yuck I will be placing an order and spreading the Yuck wealth with cousins (AJ you’ve been warned :-))

Madison is not tasting the Saucy Yuck as that would be a bad thing since polymers absorb water, need I say more?

YUCK 009 YUCK 013 Yuck can make for messy fun for birthday, co-ops, youth groups, or  just plain fun.  How about a Yuck balloon toss or Saucy Yuck wrestling? Depending on the amount you need the price ranges from $16-$20. A little bit of Yuck goes a long way. Want to try Yuck yourself? Well hop on over to Buckets-O-Fun and order a free sample and have some yucky fun!
