Does anyone know what those gooey stretchy toys are made of? The ones you can throw against a wall and they stick? Ew. I don't even know what they're called!

My parents gave dd one yesterday!! Yuck.

boogers! Pretty sure it is old boogers.

The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it.  We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.

Well I hadn't thought of that. I was ready to get uptight about phthalates or pvc's or something

I don't know either but I will tell you that those things put stains on my walls. I don't know if it is the kind of paint on our walls or what but the spots would not wash off. They look like grease stains.

We LOVE them!!!!! We have frogs and bugs and cats and even a gooey bird. Also some that just slip and slide down the wall. No stains and when they get grungy we just wash in dish soap.

Such fun.....

It's not just your paint -- they did it to my dad's condo too. I'm not sure what they're made of, but they're not fun to clean up after, lol.
