Molecules can do some pretty crazy cool things, especially when a few of them come together. Orb has taken this idea and turned it into a physical product that also offers a bit of tactile play in the process. . ORBMolecules is a moldable creation compound that kids can use to mold, squeeze, create, and decorate. Available in a variety of themes, offering different colors and sizes, ORBMolecules is a compound that won't dry out, easily sticks together, and has a crunchy feel to them reminiscent of a rice krispie treat. Right out of the box, kids can squeeze, create, and decorate using one atom at a time or multiple molecules at once. Each kit comes with more than 10,000 ORBMolecules.
The introductory line and colors currently include:
Merkitty: aqua, pink, yellow, black and white
Dragasaur: green, purple, aqua, black and white
Caticorn: purple, aqua, orange black and white
Pupperfly: pink, yellow, green, black and white
In addition to the tactile, crunchy feel of ORBMolecules, they are super open-ended. While the packaging offers a bit of inspiration, kids can really get creative in what they design and how they use these compounds. Plus unlike combining a dough compound for example, ORBMolecules can easily come apart so you can mix colors and still store them all separately at the end of the day.
ORBMolecules are for ages 5 and up. They will appeal to kids and parents looking for a new tactile/fidgety compound that also offers artistic value and reuse-ability.
