Floam, Gak make a comeback


NEW YORK — 1990s playtime staples Floam and Gak are making their return to store shelves.

NSI International and Nickelodeon said both of the items have been reformulated with new manufacturing technologies and include new ingredients, and are phthalate-, latex- and BPA-free. Nickelodeon Floam is a texturized molding compound, while Nickelodeon Gak is stretchy and squishy collectible goo.

"Nickelodeon's Floam and Gak were a phenomenon with kids in the 1990's and we are thrilled to reintroduce these toys to a whole new generation of kids," Nickelodeon SVP global toys and consumer electronics Manuel Torres said. "Kids of all ages enjoy tactile, creative play and Floam and Gak provide imaginative and unique play experiences."

Floam and Gak are available at retailers nationwide, including Walgreens and Target, for a suggested retail price of $5.99 each.
