When I was contacted a couple of weeks ago and asked to review ThermoMorph I was intrigued. I’d never heard of it, and to be honest I didn’t know what I would do with it. But I’m glad I said yes as it really is quite amazing stuff!
It is available to order from Amazon here and costs £17.95 at the moment with free delivery. It was delivered really quickly and I couldn’t wait to see what it was all about. If you want to find out more about ThermoMorph you can also check out their website.
The tub is full of small little plastic pellets and comes with clear instructions on the tub. Simply put the pellets in boiling water, leave to cool until it is 60 degrees and then the plastic has gone clear and melted and you can take it out of the water and mould it into different shapes.
Bean and I had a go at this together. She loved the fact that it melted in the water and became pliable. We decided to colour our ThermoMorph and see if we could mould it in to letter shapes in a silicone mould we had.
To colour the ThermoMorph we just added powdered food colouring to the water. The plastic picked up the dye really well. We then followed the instructions and pushed the pliable plastic into the silicone mould. When it had set a little we removed it and was able to trim the edges with scissors before it completely set.
Once it was completely set we had a fab set of coloured letters. We plan on using these to help Jelly Baby learn her letters. She thought they were great and had lots of fun playing with them and lining them up.
You could make so many different things out of this stuff. And the best thing is that it is completely reusable. Just stick it back in boiling water and you can start all over again! Apparently it can also be used to fix things together again – a look at their reviews on Amazon will give you some more ideas. Also, we hardly got through any of the stuff – so we have lots more we can make!
If you are going to try this at home please please remember to be very careful and keep the boiling water away from your child and only give them the ThermoMorph when it is cool to the touch.
Disclosure – I was gifted the tub of Thermomorph for the purposes of the review.
