Crazy Aaron's Puttyworld Has the Market on Fun!

Disclosure: We received samples to help facilitate the review. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


This is the Heat Sensitive Hypercolor putty in Twilight.
There are also so many other types, colors, and textures of putty to choose from on the website.

Crazy Aaron's Puttyworld was created by a young man on the lookout for the ultimate desk toy. After one stint of convincing his co-workers to pitch in to order 100 lb. of putty, and then having it run out very quickly, Aaron began experimenting on ways to create, color, and manufacture putty on his own. He took it to work to sell in 1 lb. boxes and that was such a success that when the world of the dot.com bubble that he was working in burst, he took to producing and selling putty full time.  His efforts paid off, and he is now the proud owner of a very successful business.

The selections at Puttyworld are amazing, to say the least. There is a putty that is magnetic; one that offers phantom writing with UV lighting; another that is heat sensitive; a shimmery, glittery putty that is sure is to please; an arctic flair that is reactive and glows in the dark, and so on and so forth (check out the site to see many other varieties and types of putty for sale).

Seriously, this putty is awesome!

We tried two types. The first was the Heat Sensitive Hypercolor in Twilight. It came in a cute and very easy to store tin container. You can see the consistency in the picture above. We loved that this variety of putty never dries out. That's big news for moms with little ones who might not yet have the art of putting things away just right, quite mastered.

The Heat Sensitive Hypercolor Option
Turns a Different Color after Just a Few Seconds in the Freezer

It was also easy to stretch, pull, and roll around into any shape you wanted to make. My favorite thing about it was that it did not make a mess. My son had this in his hair (don't ask), around his neck as a big, twisted necklace, on my arms (gifted in the form of a bracelet), and created into an elaborate lair for his mini building men to hide out in. It's super easy to clean up and doesn't stick to things or people! My son's favorite thing about it was the way it changed colors. You put it in the freezer and in a few seconds it turns from blue to purple. Roll it around in your hands for a few seconds more, and it turns right back to blue again  (you can see the color change in the photo above).



The second type of putty we tried was one of the Putty Creatures. These come in great colors (we selected the orange) and include a pair of eyeballs. The options for creating with them are endless, and fun!

His first Putty Creature was pretty cute. :)

My son made several monsters, the first one being a long, skinny guy that made us laugh. This is just the kind of toy I love for my son. Something that is top of the line at encouraging imagination and creativity (but isn't too hard to master), and my son brought his thinking cap to the table!! We had a great time with our new Crazy Aaron's Puttyworld products.

The putty is affordable and fun. You can learn more about it, browse through some of the creative crafting ideas, or learn more about the company by visiting the website.

We have some of this and my boys LOVE it. I filled their stockings with some tubs of it at Christmas a few times & they were psyched when they opened it.

Amanda Her said...

I'm sure my son would love playing with this! I've never heard of it before, but boys love anything ooey and gooey, right? LOL

debdenny said...

This looks so great. I need some for the grandkids.

Chrystal Mahan said...

I have never seen or heard of this. I will have to put it on the 'to find' list for stockings.

Dallas Socials said...

Putty use to gross me out! The smell of it always bothered me (at least when I was a child). I will have to buy some soon and see if anything has changed.

Binky said...

Looks like fun!

Carly from The Puzzled Palate said...

I remember playing with Putty when I was a kid. Mine was always icky because I would put it on the cartoons on the newspaper!

Pat Hatt said...

Looks like lots of fun indeed, I could waste hours away playing with that at work lol

Carly said...

This putty looks like so much fun! I love that you can put it in the freezer and it changes colors - fun!

It does not smell like Play Doh. I don't think it smells like anything, my son said it smells a little like vanilla ice cream. :)

Nicole Ramage said...

That looks like fun, I still love playing with putty!

Sweepster said...

That putty looks amazing! I remember playing with putty stored in an egg for hours as a kid, making it eat my lego pieces was a great time.

samantha amberstone said...

This is really neat and very interactive with children, i always loved havig stuff like this when i was younger and now that its been ages haha im sure it 100% better then when i was kid :P great pictures

Renae of Simple Sequins said...

Ya Rosie, just to clarify. True in four days I get the last infusion of poison, but the 21 days after each "chemo day" is when you feel the stuff working. Like I am still on day 18 in chemo 5 right today. And I have been having nausea issues in the past few days, which is very annoying. Usually I get the nausea on day 2-3 and deal with it for a week. So why now? Ya, dang chemo is sooooooooo unpredictable. So I am actually focusing on Aug 29th! Then all symptoms will be gone (or they had better be) Oh, I just cancer! I just do. Pray that you never get near it in any way, shape or form. It is a nasty disease.

Janell said...

I love the story. This looks like some amazing putty!

Theresa Mahoney said...

Now this is something that Allison would be all over! She is always buying slime type stuff from the dollar store, but this looks way more fun than that stuff. And the monster is all kinds of awesome!

MikiHope said...

This sounds like a lot of fun! I can see why his co workers bought it-it would be great as a stress reliever at your desk! And the fact that it does not stick makes it even better!
