Crazy Aaron’s Thinking Putty Review for Sensory Play

I’m a little sad that I won’t be making it to Toy Fair this year but I’m still getting to meet all sorts of great companies such as Crazy Aaron’s Thinking Putty! It’s no secret here that our family loves squishable squeezable and bendable objects and my kids especially love this putty!

We received their 5 Golden Rings putty which as you can see is chock full of glitter! But no worries – the glitter doesn’t come off of the putty! (phew!) It comes in a nice little tin so your putty doesn’t get stuck anywhere. I remember when my kids left their putty once in the mesh bag of their car seat…it was not a good thing!

What I love about Crazy Aaron’s Thinking Putty is that it is non toxic – which is especially nice for your kiddos who like to taste everything, your special needs kids, and in our house – even our pets.

Kind of mesmerizing isn’t it! It’s so much cooler than the basic putty I had growing up! I have to say that Crazy Aaron’s has some incredibly unique putties – there’s glow in the dark putty, heat sensitive putty, CLEAR putty, metallic putty, and more. I think they have a putty for everything! You should check out the heat sensitive putty – it would be an awesome extra to have on hand for your science lessons!

And now you see why I’m glad it’s non toxic! My kids are very inventive with their putties and even use them as a mask (or maybe I should say a blindfold!).  The putty retails for $10-$15 and you can also buy them in bulk.

If you’ve been around my site at all you may remember that my son has a sensory processing disorder which means he LOVES sensory input which is why we are such a putty-loving family! He was just thrilled to see that there was glitter in the Crazy Aaron’s Thinking Putty and I think it sort of mesmerized him a bit as he just kind of sat there staring at it a while! His favorite thing to do with it as you can see above is to create tornadoes out of putty.

This is just a great product. It stores nicely in it’s tin – you can’t break it, it’s harder to lose since the tin is larger, and there is plenty of putty to place with. I’m so glad I have learned about Crazy Aaron’s Thinking Putty because I really want to order the heat sensitive putty for my son for his birthday!! Want to hear something even cooler?

These are made in the USA by individuals with intellectual and physical disabilities – I love supporting companies that truly hire people with all capabilities!

Disclosure: I received some squishy putty in order to use and form my own opinions. All opinions are my own.

    LOL at Hanan, me, too! I do love that the glitter doesn’t come off. My kids love glittery things, but it always makes a mess.
