I received Gelli Baff products from Plasmart Inc. for my review. All opinions are my own.
I have heard about Gelli Baff and my kids have begged me for it. It says “Turns water into goo and back again!”
It looks like a lot of fun for the kids but I was always worried it would be too messy or too hard to clean up so I was avoiding it.
I finally gave in and decided to give it a shot. I am glad I did because my kids have had a blast with it and the clean up isn’t as bad as I had imagined in my mind.
I received the Gelli Baff Pool Pack and the Gelli Baff 2 pack to review. For each Gelli Baff you will need a pack of the Gelli Baff and a dissolver pack.
We did our first Gelli Baff inside in the bath tub. My kids chose blue for this one. It is best if you slowly pour the Gelli Baff mixture into the tub under the running water and then mix it around. It takes about 10 minutes for the gelli to thicken up completely. You can find the consistency your kids like best by adding more water. If you want it really thick use less water, for thinner go add more water. Start with less since you can always add more.
They had a blast playing in the tub with their Gelli Baff. I was amazed at how long this kept them entertained. When bath time was over they asked if they could do it again. It was a hit with them.
Now it was time to add the dissolver pack to get rid of the gelli. I added extra water to dilute it first and then added the dissolver pack. I mixed it around and waited about 10 minutes. It had taken away about half of the gelli and I have to admit I was worried about sending the rest down my drain. But I did it and I just let the water run for a few extra minutes to make sure the pipes got cleared out. I am happy to report there have been no clogs or problems since, and it has been a couple weeks.
The pool pack is nice since it comes with a little yellow inflatable pool so you can do your Gelli Baff outside. If you are worried about doing the Gelli Baff inside then this is for you. We inflated the pool and made our green Gelli Baff this time. The kids wanted it really thick so we didn’t put much water in. They had lots of fun playing in the thick goo Gelli Baff.
Surprisingly I think the cleanup for outside was a lot messier and more difficult since you have to decide where to pour out the Gelli Baff and since it doesn’t completely go away you have to spread it around in your garden or grass. Also, if you will be pouring it out near grass DO NOT use the dissolving packet. It is salt and salt kills the grass.
Both experiences were fun for the kids, so you can decide whether you like using it inside or outside best.
I actually recommend Gelli Baff for a fun time that your kids will enjoy a lot. The clean up and mess isn’t as bad as I had built it up in my mind and it is totally worth it to see the joy and delight on their faces as they play.
