Kinetic Foam is molding foam for kids that comes in a variety of different colors, including red, green, blue, orange, and purple. You can stretch it, squish it, flatten it, roll it up into a ball, and even use it to make new and interesting creatures to play with. It won't make your fingers or furniture sticky, and once you're done playing, you can gather it up in one ball per color in seconds. Each set of three colors comes with a handy reusable storage container.

How It Works
The ingredients used to make Kinetic Foam enable it to bend in virtually any way without easily crumbling apart. You'll be able to stretch one piece out into a long, snakelike shape if you choose, without it breaking into two. However, if you want to break small pieces of foam off a larger ball, pulling on the foam hard enough will allow you to do that, too. As you work with the molding foam, your colors will stay separate, unless you make a great effort with your fingers to blend them together. Basically, with this foam, you and your ideas will almost always be in control.
- Comes in Five Colors
You'll be able to get your hands on two packages of Kinetic Foam at once, with the first set containing red, green, and blue foam. The second will include foam in purple, orange, and blue.
- Air Dries
If you want to keep your Kinetic Foam creations for a long time, you can allow them to air dry, which will hold your molding firmly in place. ( Keep in mind that if you do this, you won't be able to use the foam you used to make these things again ).
- No Strong Odor
This foam does not smell, so you'll be able to play with it for hours without feeling tempted to hold your nose. You'll also be able to avoid annoying other members of your household with a gross smell.
- Makes Cool Noises
As you move your foam through your hands in different ways, it'll make squishing or popping noises that can be quite funny and entertaining. The noises aren't extremely loud, though, so they likely won't annoy people around you.
- Will Bounce
Once rolled into a ball or a similar shape, this foam will bounce, so you'll be able to throw it against a wall ( it won't stick ) or bounce it back and forth with a friend.
- Will Wrap Around Objects
Kinetic Foam can be wrapped around virtually any object, so if you're bored with an old toy or a dull-looking box that's sitting around your home, simply jazz it up with the colorful foam. ( If you only want the wrapping to be temporary, be sure to pull it off the object before the foam dries ). If you're giving a gift to a friend, you could even wrap it up in the foam first so they'll be surprised when they pull it apart and the gift pops out.
- Not Messy
Although pieces of Kinetic Foam will stick to each other without difficulty, the foam won't stick to your fingers, clothes, or furniture while you use it. You'll be able to clean up your mess after a molding session in a few minutes or less by gathering every little piece of foam back into one or more larger balls.
- Modeling Clay
Modelling clay is a common children's toy, but most types won't stretch as much as Kinetic Foam without breaking apart. Plus, clay can be stinky, and will get under the fingernails much more easily than Kinetic Foam.
- Kinetic Sand
There's a product similar to this foam available, called Kinetic Sand, but it will break apart more easily when handled than the foam does.
