Over the years, I’ve tried just about everything to make the tub a fun, appealing place for my children. Of course, I’ve purchased bath toys, bathtub crayons and crazy foam. I have even tried a silly shower head. On my search for activities to make bath time even more fun I came across Zimpli Kids Gelli Baff, and Slime Baff.
Gelli Baff fun
Gelli Baff is a crazy powder that turns bath water into thick goo. Fill your bathtub with 40 litres of warm water. It is best if you sprinkle the sachet of goo former evenly over the surface of the water. You then mix it around.
It takes about 10 minutes for the gelli to thicken up completely. You can find the consistency your child(ren) like best by adding more water. If you want it really thick use less water, for thinner goo add more water.
It’s important to note that one sachet of Gelli Baff will not make a very deep goo filled baff. If you want a bathtub full of goo then you may need to use more than one sachet like I have.
FAQs – Gelli Baff
Gelli Baff is one of the most tested & safe products on the market. The goo itself is completely harmless and even though it is a vibrant color it does not stain carpets, walls or skin.
If you get Gelli Baff in your eyes it could sting, so make sure to rinse it out with plenty of clear water. Similar to shampoo or soap, Gelli Baff does not taste particularly nice, so make sure kids do not put it in their mouth. The goo is quite slippy, so be careful your child(ren) does not stand up in it.
Gelli Baff Clean Up
Add the sachet of goo dissolve (which is actually just salt) while your child is still in the tub. Have the water running on warm. You may need to add extra salt to the water as we did to help the gelli dissolve. Gelli Baff is bio degradable and will not cause any harm to your drains.
The clean up can be a tad messy. Nonetheless, it was totally worth it to see the joy and delight on my daughter’s face as she played.
Overall Opinion of Gelli Baff
Overall, Gelli baff is lots of fun, and a great sensory experience. My daughter had so much fun playing in the goo. Gelli play can provide an exciting multi-sensory experience that aids cognitive, social, emotional and physical development. Gelli Baff is also great for water trays. Hide things in the goo and watch the kids squirm as they put their hands in to try and find the hidden objects.
Gelli Baff comes in a variation of colours and styles, in both one and two use boxes. The product is not recommended for children under 5 years of age unless supervised by an adult.
Bath time fun with Slime Baff
Kids and slime go hand in hand. Instead of your normal DIY slime play, why not take things to the next level and run them a slime bath. Take it from me, your children will love it. Zimpli KIds Slime Baff turns bath water into a gooey, oozy bath of slime. To use fill your bath tub with water like you did for the Gelli bath.
After you dump powder into the tub it will take about 10 to 15 minutes to set. Mix the powder around in the tub with your hand. The longer you leave the slime the thicker it will be. My daughter pretends to be a mermaid as she swims through a bath of slime.
It can get very slippery so be careful! I also recommend you quickly start mixing it around or it will clump. Ours clumped quite a bit this time around then the first time we used it.
When your child is done playing in the goo, simply rinse it, along with the water from your bath, down the drain as usual.
For even more fun mix the Gelli Baff and slime together.
I recommend wearing a bathing suit before indulging yourself into a bathtub of slime as it could potentially cause some irritation, especially in girls.
With Easter right around the corner, Gelli Baff and Slime Baff would make a great Easter gift or Easter basket filler.
