So something magical happened. A company contacted me about reviewing their product. Usually it's the other way around. So here it is: ThermoMorph!
Amazon, for $19.95 per 500g. Basically, it is a bottle of little plastic beads that melt in hot water. They are about this big:
The one downside of this stuff is part of the whole reusable thing... once it's in a lump, it takes forever to warm back up again enough to be pliable. We did get some interesting flower shapes, working with pieces that were warm and bendy on the outside and hard in the middle. But, if you have leftover pieces, and you want to use them again later, I highly suggest rolling them out into a thin piece, and maybe snipping it into little bits before putting it back in the jar. Also, a thing to keep in mind is that it's kind of boingy. It springs back when you press on it, know what I mean? But it is really neat, over all, and I'm looking forward to playing with it some more.
Full disclosure: I did get some free ThermoMorph to play with. I was not however compensated in any other way for this review.
