6 Things to Know About Slime

It’s almost impossible to be scrolling through social media without seeing slime. Whether it’s a slime storytime or a slime ASMR video, this aesthetically-pleasing, mesmerizing goo is everywhere

Slime’s popularity isn’t new, but it’s seen a resurgence in the past few years, especially on TikTok and for an older audience. While children remain the main consumers of slime, adults are buying them too for the sensory experience and the positive benefits they may have on their mental health.

Here’s six fun insights that you might like to know about slime:

People on the internet are obsessed with #oddlysatisfying videos and slime is at the very center of it. If watching colors or different textures being mixed into slime, or seeing it being kneaded from its perfect shape is joyful or relaxing to you, you’re certainly not alone. #Slime already has over 114 billion views on TikTok.

Slime has resonated with people from all walks of life, and Google Ads data shows that the highest searches for the toy comes mostly from women, and mainly from the 35 - 44 age range. Interestingly, a little more than half of these consumers aren’t parents, which may mean that they are buying the toys for themselves.

While Google Trends data highlights these countries as the top places where people are searching for slime.

The visual element of slime is one of the most important aspects of why people like them, so slime makers have gotten very creative with it. One of the most common ways that it’s been reimagined so far is as food.

They smell revolting, and leave this annoying residue everywhere. This feels like something your 5 year old could conjure up in the bathroom.


Leaves lots of residue on your hands. Not as fluffy as you’d expect. I probably wouldn’t purchase this again and won’t be playing w it as much as I’d thought.


Easy to clean, stretches and good quality.Got this for my 2 kids. They love it! It stretches extremely well. Just follow the instruction that comes with the kit and the slime will work extremely well. I will be buying one more as a gift for my little nephew. Also, the seller is professional and have great customer service.


Its very fun and satisfying to squish and stretch, the red one is lightly scented watermelon and the blue one is lightly scented coconut its overall a great slime except its a little cheap feeling.
