Meet the Little Goo Drops from the Goo Goo Galaxy

My daughter has been completely enthralled by space since learning about it during her first year of school. Astronauts, planets, the sun, the moon if it's in our galaxy she wants to know about it. It was only the other day that I was trying to teach her that silly acronym about remembering the planets, anyone else remember that one? I think it's important to encourage children to learn about space to help develop an appreciation for the universe, but we can always have a little fun, add a little sparkle and use a little imagination...

Crashing from the the gooey galaxy far away are the squishy jiggly Goo Drops. These little alien babies are lost and stranded far from their home stars waiting to be rescued by goo loving Earthlings. Their squishy, jiggly bellies are filled with some of the goo from their galaxy and when you squeeze them you can see their sparkling, glittery galaxy move about inside them. 

We were kindly send over Astra Nommy and Yumi Unicorn who arrived in their little alien goo pods with windows all around. But during their crash landing our ones did get a little damaged but they were still great to use in our creative play. Inside each goo pod you will get goo doll, passport, goo-to-go cup, straw, string and three goo ingredients! There's a DIY galactic slime activity included that we were able to mix, make a little slime smoothie, with each colour having a special meaning.

Astra Nommy 

Say hello to Astra Nommy who has a very squishy, jiggly belly filled with some of the galaxy as we squeezed her belly we could see her sparkling, glittery galaxy move about inside. It looks like confetti and reminds me of sprinkles. Astra Nommy has a really bobbly body and we loved watching her head wobble as we played our games. She loves donuts, can be shy but is super sweet who is always on the look out for sweet treats to eat.

Inside the goo pod there is goo-to-go cup with the cosmic cloud and star shine, a straw with a string attached to the cup.  Inside the goo pod there is a pull the emergency hatch where the Inter-GOO-lactic Passport and the slime crystals were hidden inside. It's filled with heaps of fun details about Astra Nommy like her birthday, eye colour, height and what planet she's from. When we went to make our slime we couldn't find the slime as they had slipped into the back of the box so we went ahead with the cosmic cloud and star shine. The slime fell out and we took the cosmic cloud and star shine out of the cup, made the slime and popped the others two back into the cup. A slime smoothie perfect for our little goo pod, it was a pretty turquoise colour. As it has a little string attached to the pod we decided to attach it to a bag but we didn't secure the lid enough and cosmic cloud went everywhere, so its perhaps made more for display.

Yumi Unicorn

Meet Yumi Unicorn who is an adorable little unicorn. As many of you know my girl loves unicorns and magical creature so Yumi Unicorn was by far her favourite. It's hard not to see why she is the sweetest little goo drop filled with pretty purple mystical glitter goo from her Mystico home star. Yumi Unicorn is the Goo Drop who always has her head in the clouds, she's a dreamer who's a little forgetful! Aren't we all? With the D.I.Y activity with this go drop was easier as we knew that the slime crystals were hidden behind the pull emergency hatch, my daughter did this little smoothie on her own and it was a pink goo with blue on the top with a secret hidden message telling us to follow our dreams. 

DIY Galactic Slime Activity

Inside each goo pod you will find a little goo-to-go cup that had two small sachets inside, with a cute little straw and string attached. My daughter couldn't wait to start our slime activity, how as the slime crystals with Astra fell into the back of the box we couldn't do the slime part first. So make sure you checked your passport for the slime. The inter-goo-lactic passport included some information about the goo drop including their birthday, planet, eye colour and things that they like. For the Galactic Slime Activity there was a step-to-step guide in making the slime, or as we like to call it a goo drop smoothie! We started with adding the slime crystals and a little water into the goo-to-go cup allowing enough time for the slime to set. The next step was the cosmic cloud slowly adding water as the cloud grew, topping our goo drop smoothie with star shine. It is important to remember that the goo drop smoothie is for display only. Each smoothie colour has a special message from their little goo drops such as shoot for the moon, you're a real star, follow your dreams and you're out of this world.

We really enjoyed make the goo drop smoothie, but it's a shame that it is for display only. It's a tiny one shot packet of slime, cosmic cloud and star shine! The goo-to-go cup isn't secure enough and ended up on my carpets but a quick scoop back into the cup as we were good to go. At only £14.99 per Goo Drop it would make the perfect little stocking filler or small gift for someone who loves slime, glitter and creative play! My daughter has asked for Luna Laguna next. You can get these from Smyths Toys, The Entertainer, and Amazon. You can choose Astra Nommy, Yumi Unicorn, Stella Skygems or Luna Laguna why not collect them all?

** Disclaimer: We were kindly gifted the Goo Drops from Character Toys bundle but as always my thoughts and opinions are my own **


  1. My children love anything associated with slime so I bet they'd love these. The little aliens look super cute and it sounds like the slime/smoothie wasn't to complicated to make which helps.

  2. How cute are these little aliens! Love the slime element too :)

  3. Oh these are so the rage at the moment. Kids love these and I think they make for fab gifts too xx

  4. Of all the goo/slime toys I've seen recently, these look the nicest. They look like proper dolls and I love the colours. So cool there's a space-association to them too.

  5. These look super cute - anything with slime is a winner for my kids

  6. My kids love unicorns so they would adore these.

  7. They look like such unique and interesting toys! Am sure lots of little kids will want these at Christmas
