Ooze w/ mini turtle

Does anyone still see these in the store? They seem to be sold out at all the usual places online, and they're not in any of my local shops. What's the deal with this stuff? Is was everywhere up until a month or two ago and now it's disappeared.

just a guess, but this stuff was stinky and burned kids eyes that played with it then touched their face, lol. so they may have discontinued it.

I had no idea. I actually wanted to buy this for my nephew, would be a shame if they discontinued it. Especially with all the ways all the toys utilize the ooze. WAY TO GO PLAYMATES.

I saw some in TRU as recently has 2 or 3 weeks ago.

If they don't restock soon, don't worry too much. They showed off the multicolored ooze at their SDCC panel so they should be heading back to stores in various colors (who knows if the bluegreen will still be available though)

My guess is that every case of ooze will have various colors such as orange, purple and bluegreen. the miniturtles inside are supposedly the same.

If you care about your Nephew, don't buy him one of these things. Real talk. If you touch it with bare hands, anything you touch after (whether you've washed your hands or not) will smell & taste of it. I have still seen these in stores though, yes. Kmart, Toys R Us, Wal-mart.

How much were they on clearance for?

Anyway, I don't think these were recalled or anything like that, stores probably just don't order that much.

Yeah that makes no sense about a recall since it didn't happen I have a few without turtles I would sell to you cheap I really only want one canister for display.

People say some dumb stuff.

Hell, I have 15 of them that I'm trying to get rid of, but no one's buying. I thought I'd love them, but it's just a solid mass of glop that isn't 'oozey' at all. I mean, it doesn't pour, and you basically can tear it, or cut it, apart. I hope with the different colored ones they change the consistency.
