What It Is
Goo Hu is part science experiment and part bouncing toy. Each Goo Hu kit comes with two silicone-based modeling compounds. When kept apart, the compounds remain gooey, but once combined, the compounds turn into a rubbery, bouncy, and flexible form that won't shrink, crack, break, or lose its bounce.
The Super Bounce Balls kit makes five bouncy balls and comes with three mini figures to put inside the balls. It comes with two molds for making either a Hex Ball with a hexagon pattern and texture or an Atom Ball with a rounded pattern and texture. The directions are slightly different depending on which mold you use, but the basic idea is to combine one A-Matter pod with one B-Matter pod. Knead them together for at least two minutes or until they are fully mixed. Press the matter into each half of the mold and add a mini figure if you want, then press the two mold halves together. Immediately peel away any excess Goo Hu. Let the mold set for 10-15 minutes. Open the mold and remove the bouncy ball.
The kit includes five A-matter pods, five B-matter pods, three mini character figures, two molds, and an instruction sheet. There are two versions available: a boy-themed kit and a girl-themed kit. Each is sold separately.
Is It Fun?
Goo Hu combines crafting with chemistry, allowing children to use their imagination to create unique toy shapes and forms with relative ease. The finished product looks and feels cool and bounces really well.
Who It’s For
Goo Hu Super Bounce Balls is for ages 6 and up.
What To Be Aware Of
It's important to read through all instructions before you start, and make sure you're working on a clean, flat area. Have a timer, watch, or clock with a second hand to track mixing and curing times.
If your Super Bounce Ball does not seem fully cured at the end of the 10-15 minutes, keep the mold closed and wait five more minutes. Sometimes Goo Hu that was not thoroughly mixed will take longer to cure. For best results, leave Goo Hu to cure overnight.
Unmixed and uncured product may stain. Keep away from materials that cannot be laundered. Wash hands after use.
While the bouncing can be fun and satisfying, don't expect it to be like a super ball, which uses a much more highly compressed material and a different chemical process to create.
