Slime- a toy in the form of slime, first presented to the public in 1976. The founder is considered to be Mattel, which released the first Slime in the form of green.
After the release of the series “Ghostbusters”, this toy received a “second wind”, and many new manufacturers have already appeared, and in the common people handgam began to be called Slime in honor of the main staff of the film project. However, unofficial sources indicate that the first recipe for “slime” was created completely by accident by a little girl who mixed several ingredients at her dad’s office. Whether it is true or not is unknown. However, the fact that today many children are interested in how to make slime at home, and manage to come up with new recipes, encourages you to believe it. We offer to make sure of this by means of the top 20 cooking options for various slimes.
