Science Museum Science Putty
Advantages: A lot of uses, stress reliever
For Christmas, my sister was given this Science Museum Putty as a stocking filler. It cost around £2 from Asda, however previously it was around £7. My parents were really glad that this came at such a cheap price, as if they had paid £7, they would really have been annoyed at such a waste of their money.
The putty comes in a small tin, which is locked quite securely as my sister found it hard to open. The tin is quite sturdy as even when she dropped it on a wooden floor, the tin did not dent. Upon opening it the putty looked quite small as it was placed within a small plastic bag, however as soon as it was opened and placed in the tin it managed to cover the entire base of it.
The putty itself is not the same as other brands of putty - the ones that make the weird squelchy noise when you squish them - as it brands itself as being the putty that is solid and a liquid at the same time. This means you can practically do anything with it, as the tin states you can "bend it, shape it, anyway you want - Bounce, shatter, tear, shape and play!".
My sister loves playing with this stuff, as you usually find her molding it into different shapes and making weird models out of it. However, you can't really pull the putty to far lengths as after getting to about arms length it will become stringy and fall apart. My sister and mum both tried to make it form a really long string, however it just kept breaking whenever they tried. Yet, the putty does make for great bouncy balls, as you can mold it into a ball shape and use it. My mum also states that it is a great stress reliever!
Whenever you place the putty in a tin whatever the shape, as long as you leave it within it, it will begin to melt and go all on the base of the tin. The main problem with this though as even though they do warn you (this is shown in very small letters on the tin) that it can only be used on hard surfaces, as if it goes to fabric, it can be hard to get out.
While this putty is used quite a lot in our family, it is definitely not worth the high price tag and I would say that if you can get it for £2-£3 definitely invest in it. While a small price, it does have a lot of uses and can be enjoyed by everyone
