I received a tin of the Aura Glow In The Dark Putty for review. The putty is actually white, but when used with the Blacklight Keychain (not included) from Aaron's, it glows a purple/violet color. However, even without the glow in the dark feature, we had plenty of fun with the putty!
First of all, it's a great tension reliever. I work at a computer for anywhere from as little as 2 hours a day, to as much as 6+ hours a day. Since I'm an active person, I can get tense just from sitting at the computer for an hour or two! I've found that keeping the putty nearby to "snap, crackle and pop" helps relieve the boredom and stress. I don't work in an office, but for those of you who do, Aaron recommends doing this and enjoying the aggravation it causes your coworkers! Yeah, I see how that could be fun! :)
The kids also enjoyed making shapes and creations with the Thinking Putty. Snakes and hot dog shapes are the most obvious, but some pretty unique designs came out too.
However much fun popping and creating with Thinking Putty is, my favorite part is the bouncing. Remember the old Disney "Absent-Minded Professor" movie? If you recall the wonderful invention of flubber, then you'll have a good idea of how the putty responds. No, it's not quite as "bouncy" as flubber-I have yet to be able to leap up and slam-dunk a basketball due to attaching this putty to my sneakers-but it is remarkably bounce-able!

As you can tell, the family is really enjoying Crazy Aaron's Thinking Putty. There are so many varieties and colors available, ranging from basic putty to magnetic putty, heat sensitive putty, and even phantom putty. Check them out today for some creative, thinking, fun!
