Monday Madness: Dollar Store Ooze Run

If you tuned in to the last Frugal Friday then you may remember my beautifully disgusting new Muck Man. Well, as you know, Much Man has some awesome ooze features. You know, because he's not nasty enough already.

So, the next best thing to finding Muck Man's companion figure, Joe Eyeball, would be getting my hands on some Retromutagen Ooze (sold separately, naturally). The sad thing is they don't exactly make the stuff anymore. It can be found on eBay, but it's a pricey collector's item, and it's also known to loss its viscosity over time. So what's a guy to do? I searched around the interweb a little and found you can make your own Retromutagen Ooze or Ectoplasim. Hmm, that could be a possibility if it came to that; but I'd much rather have something that's pre-made and ready to go.

Just when it seemed like all hope was lost or something, Eric, of Toyrific, informed me that Ooze type toys can often be found at dollar stores! So today, after work, I stopped by our local Dollar Tree and lo and behold they were fully stocked with BARREL-O-SLIME, and it's freaking glow-in-the-dark! YES! I was so stinking excited! I just couldn't believe they had slime, and 3 types no less! They had green, red, and a mystery color (the 3rd type was in a black container that was not at all transparent), maybe blue?

Just beautiful

A mighty fine barrel. The "CAUTION" all over is a nice touch. I plan on returning to buy the solid black barrel.

I decided green would be most fitting for now. When I finally got the slime home I found Muck Man was even more excited than I expected. I had luckily picked his favorite flavor-o-slime.


Glow-in-the-dark, baby!

It really is no wonder we never had this as kids.

Easy there tiger!

He wanted to dig in right away, but I want to save The Slimening for the up and coming October Blogathon. The Slimening will commence on October the 1st. There will also be a surprise guest! I bet the suspense is just killing you!

Soon my friend, soon.


  1. Glow in the dark slime? Even better! I've only found the regular kinds at my dollar store. I may need to take another look!

    1. Yeah, I was pretty stoked! Thanks again for the great tip! Know I just need to learn how to photograph something that is glow-in-the-dark.

    1. Nor can I! I like the title, Slime-Time. Can I steal that?

  3. HA HA! Just lookin at that guy is enough! Another toy my cousin Joey had...... ;)
    Love it!

    1. He really is a great toy! I'm happy to finally own one! Even though he is missing his skullcap.
