TOS Crew Buckets of Fun Review "YUCK, YUCK and more YUCK"!

$16-$20/pound (yields between 25-60 gallons!)

That's Chunky Yuck, Snowy Yuck, Sticky Yuck and Saucy Yuck
That's Chunky Yuck, Snowy Yuck, Sticky Yuck and Saucy Yuck  to be exact!

What is Yuck you ask?

 Polymers.....which are very large molecules, formed by repeated patterns of chemical units strung together.  Or in kid terms - lots 'o fun!

Chunky Yuck - looks like rock salt when dry and hydrates to the size of machine ice cubes.  It's great for wrestling and games where items are hidden in it.

Saucy Yuck!

Saucy Yuck - starts out as a powder and when hydrated has the consistency of applesauce.

Snowy Yuck!

Snowy Yuck - When dry this has the consistency of sugar.  Just add water and you've got Slushy Snow.  Great for a Christmas in July party.  It can be formed, but not hard packed.  (Snow in Florida??????  Gotta love it!)
Snowy Yuck!
Snow in this Heat?  Yes!

Sticky Yuck
Fun with Polymers!

Sticky Yuck - Sticky, sticky, sticky!  Use your imagination!

Sticky Yuck

The company Buckets-O-Fun has been around for about 4 years.  They've been providing fun and unique products for social events.  (They even provide a game sheet to use their Yuck products in carnivals, parties, camps, and more).  They have teamed up with a veteran science teacher and will be bringing affordable, easy to use projects for the classroom and home in the months to come.

I do have to say that 'Yuck' is rather messy and is best made and used outside.  We enjoyed the science experiment aspect of it....but, I do admit that I'm not brave enough to use it in any sort of games.  I think that's best left to party coordinators!!

Here's what other crew members are saying.

I received samples of Yuck free of charge in return for an honest review.
