Gelli Baff: U.K.

Most parents think of the bathtub as a place to get clean, but the makers of Gelli Baff had a different vision: the tub as Technicolor kiddie tar pit. Sprinkling a package of this colored powder into the bath quickly turns plain water into thick, gloppy goo; kids can wallow and slather themselves in a variety of colors (like Lava Blast Red and Magic Swamp Green) and even fragrances (like Cola and Popcorn). While the muck, which originally started out as a foot-spa product, is ostensibly good for the skin, a special dissolving powder is included for children who need a bath after their bath.
