Timberdoodle's review
 
Pacific Surf Thinking Putty
Pop the tin and you'll fall in love with the rich sparkling blue of Timberdoodle's exclusive Pacific Surf Thinking Putty. Pick it up and squeeze it and you'll find this is the softest of all our Thinking Putty colors. Best of all, hold it up to the light and watch as the hidden green tones jump out at you, just as if a gorgeous Pacific wave is cresting in the sunlight.

Work Your Hands - Work Your Brain

When one of our children was a preschooler, we received the best advice a parent of a kinesthetic child could receive: Let her wiggle. And wiggle she did. I don't think she sat for schoolwork for many years. But sometimes pirouettes and somersaults can be a distraction to other children, especially if you are dealing with a mixed bag of modalities. The visual students in particular will go bonkers trying to be attentive in the presence of a human pogo stick. However the kinesthetic child can't be attentive without movement. A workable compromise is a handheld fidget of some sort. Since last spring, we have investigated a number of fidgets; some were silly, some were creepy, and most were flimsy. I broke three in one week and I am not even kinesthetic! So when our shipment of Thinking Putty arrived, I was eager to see how it fared. The results were outstanding.

Bounce, Stretch, Tear, Drip, Snap, Even Shatter Thinking Putty
Thinking Putty is Silly Putty but enhanced with knock-your-socks-off colors that shift or morph completely as you squeeze. All versions of the non-toxic, non-gooey Thinking Putty will bounce, stretch, tear, drip, snap, even shatter. Silicone-based, they will never dry out. The Heat Sensitive versions will change colors with the warmth of your hands while the Color Shifting putties will maintain their individual colors no matter how many times they are kneaded. The Electric Colors will dazzle you with their iridescent sparkle, and the Metallic Thinking Putty looks like molten metal oozing and shining in your hand.

Stress-Relieving, Hand Exercising Thinking Putty
Thinking Putty is an impressive adult-sized handful of high quality moldable putty. Not just for wiggly children, Thinking Putty is also a stress-relieving, soothing slab of super-smooth elastic putty for tense office workers and impatient computer geeks. It also can be used as a hand exercise for guitar players or therapy for arthritic hands. Each tin arrives with one-fifth of a pound of Thinking Putty and a label that says Crazy Aaron's Thinking Putty. They offered to put our names on the label instead, at nearly twice the price, but we decided that we would let Aaron be the crazy one! We offer many mesmerizing versions of thinking putty. Each tin contains enough putty for a couple of children to use at the same time.

Note About Clean Up
Like its cousin Silly Putty, Thinking Putty does stick to fabric, hair, and carpet, so keep an eye on where your little guy puts it! For a tidier option for your wiggler and fidgeter, check out Playfoam. However, if you do find yourself in a predicament and need to remove stray Thinking Putty, try these tips from the manufacturer: Oops, I Sat on my Thinking Putty!

A Favorite! Perfect for Storytime July 27, 2015
Reviewer: Lisa  
The Pacific Surf is a favorite at our house. It is a softer putty, the color changing ones have a harder consistency. But my kids enjoy this as it is easy to shape and roll in their hands. It is a beautiful translucent blue green color.

The Pacific Surf Putty is May 11, 2015
Reviewer: Lisa  
The Pacific Surf Putty is the absolute prettiest putty out there! That said, it belongs to my son; it looks like sunlight through a tropical blue wave. He simply calls it blue. We have a whole assortment of Thinking Putty, from the Heat Sensistive Color changers to the Super Illusions. The Pacific Surf is a softer putty (like the Super Illusions) and easier to shape and mold. Younger kids are drawn to it as it does not feel hard in one's hand. However, it does not hold its shape for long so it is difficult to form animals or small items with it (as my daughter does with the harder Heat Sensitive putty. Either way, Thinking Putty hits a home run in my home!
