Ad – We are Poopsie Slime obsessed in this house. I have to admit I am a fan too! I just love making it, the blind bags and the creatures that come with it are very cool. The gremlin was most put out at Christmas when we didn’t review the Poopsie Slime Surprise Unicorn, as we had just reviewed the original Poopsie Slime Surprise. I had constant chatter about how cool it was. How cute it was. How one of her friends were having one for Christmas….it went on and on! When we were offered the chance to review one this month, I just had to say yes for her and as predicted she was so excited!
I must say the biggest thing we have learnt from our own experiences is you must follow the instructions to the letter, as sometimes the slime doesn’t set. If it doesn’t, leave it for longer and sometimes a LOT longer. It tends to work and set then. This can be double the time recommended. However, for this product is seemed different.
More About the Poopsie Slime Surprise Unicorn
The Poopsie Slime Surprise Unicorn retails at £49.99, so for me is definitely one I would purchase as a gift for a birthday or Christmas.
The Poopsie Slime Unicorn does exactly what it sounds like. Feed her and sit her on the potty and she will poop glittery slime! There are 20 different combos to create with the unicorn magic and sparkle packets. You customise the slime how you want to!
You get 20 surprises included with your Poopsie Slime Surprise Unicorn: 4 Unicorn Food slime packets, 4 Unicorn Magic packets and 1 packet of Unicorn Sparkle. There is a collectible Poopsie keychain and an exclusive bottle, a unicorn shirt & nappy, a spoon, a hair brush, a cleaning tool and a measuring cup.
These products are recommended for children aged 6 and older. The gremlin is 5 but was fully supervised. There are also 4 different unicorns you can collect.
Testing Out the Product
The gremlin was thrilled with the parcel that arrived and we opened her Poopsie Slime Surprise Unicorn after her first day back at school after holidays.
You have to take off the plastic cover and then rip to cardboard packaging open to reveal your blind bag surprises and the case with your unicorn inside.
The gremlin was so excited, I barely had time to take any pictures without her moving at 100mph!
After excitedly pulling out her haul she was ready to open her Unicorn. Personally I wanted the rainbow-haired one as I am rainbow obsessed but the grem got the pink-haired one. I still think she was happy regardless!
We actually decided to do the slime the next day due to time and she loved just playing with the Unicorn to be honest! Making it a bed, pretending to feed it and getting it to use its “potty”. It is quite good for make-believe games and role play before you even start with the slime.
Making The Slime
We actually did not have the best experience getting the Unicorn to poop the slime, which was a. real shame. I mentioned in the introduction you have to follow the instructions to the letter and we thought we did this time, having lots of Poopsie Slime experience, but we ended up in a bit of a mess and a little disappointed.
We started by feeding the Unicorn the Unicorn Sparkle as instructed and this did spill a lot, so make sure you do the activity in a place you don’t mind getting covered in glitter.
You have to ensure the Unicorn is set to being fed by a little dial on the back. You move it to the left (set to feeding). After adding the Unicorn sparkle you feed her 5ml of water (use the measuring pot exactly as per the instructions).
After this you add the Unicorn food to the bottle with the straw and then add 25ml of water. It is important to note you only have 2 minutes from this stage to the Unicorn pooping. After adding the water and shaking for 1 minute you feed the Unicorn the slime mixture, by squeezing the bottle and putting the straw in her mouth.
Immediately I had a problem here. The slime was already set and I could not put into her mouth. It started coming back out! I wasn’t sure if I had taken too long but didn’t think I had. We had definitely followed the instructions too. It was like a Vomit-Unicorn!!
What is supposed to happen is after you have fed the Unicorn, you move the dial on her back to right and make her do cartwheels to shake for a minute. Then take off little shorts, sit her on the potty, squeeze the heart on her tummy and she should poop slime.
I expected the slime to be very runny and would then take some time to set in the potty, as per the instructions. They do say wait 15 minutes or so and then you can add Unicorn Sparkle or Shimmer to customise the slime. For us it did not work out and the slime was too solid.
I then had the fun job of cleaning the Unicorn out which you are recommended to do between each slime you make. There are clear instructions for this and a brush is provided. However for me, I ended up using a chopstick to get all the slime out of the Unicorn’s mouth! This took ages.
We didn’t have another go at that point.
The first thing that surprised me was how big the Unicorn was! I have to also say in a very plastic conscious world we are now in, there is a lot of plastic packaging so make sure you recycle where you can.
This product is pricey. I’m not going to say other-wise. My gremlin loved it as a toy too and not just for the slime-aspect but definitely weigh up whether or not it is worth it for your child after reading my review.
I was actually quite sad making the slime hadn’t worked and wasn’t too keen on trying again due to all the cleaning and mess. The gremlin wasn’t too bothered, as I think was more keen on playing with the Unicorn regardless but it was a lot of money for just a Unicorn. You could of course make up the slime separately using the cup and accessories but not the point of the product.
Overall it wasn’t one of my favourite Poopsie Slime products. The Unicorn itself is really cool, looks great and I can see the excitement for it but we struggled to make it poop! We may have made an error when making the slime and may try again another day but it was just so messy. You only have a number of tries, unless you buy the Poopsie Slime Surprise packs but this is an additional expense.
Definitely think all this through before buying the product and just read the instructions well!!
It’s a shame when a product is not what I expected but I hope this has helped you if struggling too or making a decision about buying one.
