While they probably won’t sell as well as the Pet Rock did many years ago, these Putty Monsters are yet another ridiculously simple idea that will probably end up making a small fortune. Slime’s popularity has come and gone over the years, mostly directly related to other pop-culture fads like Double Dare or Ghostbusters, but recently we’ve seen it enjoying a bit of a comeback thanks to some clever gimmicks. First it was the Magnetic Thinking Putty from a few months ago, and now it’s these Putty Monsters which are really nothing more than just slime in a can but with added personality thanks to a couple of plastic eyeballs. In fact I’d be tempted to scoff at the ~$16 price tag were it not for that pink monster staring so angrily at me. I’ll take 10!
