Scentsory Putty

3 yrs & up
New in 2019!

Thinking Putty gets a new feature... Scent!

These varieties have a slightly different texture than the regular Thinking Putty. It's a little softer, a little silkier, and maybe a bit ... stretchier. The rich aromas hearken back to the mid-80's, sure to trigger a grown up's memories (we had a heated debate over Gumballer... Was it HubbaBubba or Bazooka?). For kids, it's just an added element in their putty play.

The more senses you can get involved, the richer the experience.

Scentsory Putty comes in 1/20 lb. (.88 oz.) tins.

Note: No matter how good it smells, Scentsory Putty is Not Edible! Do Not Eat!

Crazy Aaron's Liquid Glass Thinking Putty

Liquid Glass Thinking Putty is in a category all it’s own. It truly is crystal clear. So much so, that you might think the tin is empty! It flows and moves a bit differently than the other Thinking Puttys. And because of the special formula, it can turn cloudy when handled. Put it back in it’s tin and let it rest, the next time you get it out it’ll be crystal clear again!
