What our experts think
Our testers absolutely loved the thinking putty and really enjoyed exploring the colours and properties. We loved the way in which the different putties behaved (such as the heat-sensitive colour changing putty) and this meant there was lots of scope to discuss the scientific properties of materials. It really nurtured curious minds too – we had children carrying out various experiments with the putty, such as putting it in the fridge once it had changed colour so that she could see how quickly it changed back.
We found the tins were a little tricky to open for children, but they did mean the putty is easy to take out and about. We felt that this would be a really good fidget toy, which can be good for children with anxiety.
