I remember growing up as a kid one of the things I longed after was to be doused in slime like we would see on TV while watching Nickelodeon. At the time there was something so satisfying and exciting about watching the neon green goop slide all over the place and cover people from head to toe. Of course, I wasn't thinking long-term about having to clean all of that up or what it's like when it gets stuck somewhere but I sure do now.

Slime has got to be near the top of the least disliked/hated items for every parent. You almost can't escape it as there is slime at almost every store you go to and often there are activities in school in which the children make slime. This means that there will be slime in the home and it is mostly likely to be stuck all over furniture and other things in the home. For those who live near or visit the Oakland Mall, the slime fun can happen there and stay there with the newest storefront.
