“ Brand: Ben 10 / Type: Bath Toy / Bubble bath „
The little lad received a tin of Ben 10 mouldable bath foam in his stocking this year, as bought by my other half on behalf of Santa Claus. She bought it from Boots for about £4 and it was on some sort of buy two get one free promotion.
This just looks like a cylinder shaped can with a Ben 10 Monster Head on the top. The nozzle on the tin is hidden by the head of the monster, so you can't see it. The monster's mouth is open and the idea is that when depressed, the contents will be dispersed from the monster's mouth. Good, eh?
I have to say that both my little lad and his mum were all quite disappointed in this product, however, as it just didn't deliver what it promised to on the tin. It is supposed to be a mouldable foam that is also a soap. The foam itself is a vivid green and looks like thin strands of spaghetti. My little lad was eager to try to mould the strands into some monster shapes whilst he was sitting in the bath on Christmas Day night, but unfortunately it just didn't happen.
The foam seemed to increase in size until all the strands sort of moulded themselves together and try as he might, he wasn't able to mould the foam into anything resembling a monster of any description. His very words were "it's rubbish". So that about sums it up, really.
He was also a bit taken aback by the fact that we then asked him to wash himself with the foam and said he couldn't as it wasn't a washing thing, it was a playing thing. Disappointment all round.
On the plus side, this does smell rather nice and fruity and quite pleasant and it didn't seem to irritate his sensitive skin at all.
I would say that if you have a Ben 10 fan in your house who is reluctant to have a bath, you can tempt him or her in with this stuff. However, it will be a once-only event as he's not cottoned on to the fact that it's a useless product so we now have to find other ways to tempt him to gat washed.
After finally getting down to the bottom of the toiletries Christmas bag yesterday, I was amazed to find stuff in there that I hadn't even realised my children had received as presents, with one of those gifts being the subject of this review.
The product is - "Ben10 mouldable foam".
To be honest, even after getting this from the bag of goodies we had, I didn't take much notice thinking it was a bottle of bubble bath, which my kids seem to have received by the vat full this year (I am starting to wonder whether my family thinks they smell!), so due to my son not being a huge fan of Ben10 as such, it got relegated to the back of the "to use" pile!
Upon closer inspection this is actually just a shaving foam tin, with the nozzle part being obscured from view by a fitted "head" of one of Ben10' alter ego monsters, with the idea (I assume), being that the stream of foam can be squirted out from the hole in the monsters mouth, though we have never been able to do this as the head doesn't line up properly with the nozzle part!
The bottle itself holds all the relevant information needed, brand name (cartoon network), product name (as above!), conditions of use and directions for use.
My son was incredibly eager to take his bath that night to try out this foam, though didn't get quite what he was expecting!
This product states that this is mouldable foam that can double up as cleaning soap, with the child (once finished with there master pieces!), can then simply rub over the body then thoroughly rinse clean.
When the press the nozzle the foam comes out in a thin wiry looking green foam, so dense my son said he thought it was silly string, the perfect consistency for moulding.
When my son starting trying to mould with it, it had by then doubled in size from the string of foam initially seen and was just bog standard foam by then, so not a great deal of moulding could be achieved with it, though it didn't really seem to bother him.
The downside for him, was the fact this is a bathing foam too, he thought he could just sit in the bath creating works of art, then get out, so when I told him he had to wash with what he deemed a figure of Stephen Gerard (?, looked like a lump to me, easy!), he was not impressed!
The foam itself, washing wise, is a fruity scented concoction that doesn't seem to irritate the skin in anyway, even with my son's skin being sensitive at times, and left him smelling delicious too!
Price wise this is available from Boots for around the £4.00 mark, but can also be purchased from
This is a nice enough product that doesn't irritate skin and also encourages the child using it to get into the bat without complaint, though be warned my son has managed to use this within two baths, so buying more than one can is advisable!
