What is Skwooshi? That is the big question that was looming here at Rock Father HQ after Irwin Toy, the folks behind this new mystery substance, sent us their new “Car and Train Action Set” for review. On the surface, Skwooshi is some sort of modeling compound that “stretches, molds, and shapes into amazing detail with no mess and will never dry out.” In other words, this is not like Play-Doh, nor is it like clay, Gak, or Floam. Or it is? It has properties of all of those, but it’s definitely something unique… so much so that it’s addictive, and something that I’m recommending as a stocking stuffer in my 2013 Holiday Gift Guide. Since explaining this is a bit difficult, I figured that Addie and I would show you a little Swooshi in-action. Watch the video below…
While just constantly playing with Skwooshi on it’s own is fun, the action set includes little molds and holders for creating tiny vehicles and such. In the spirit of the season, Addie ended up with a little green snowman, complete with his own hat.
Skwooshi is available in a variety of assortments, and can be purchased through my new affiliate, Amazon:
