Welcome to Toysplosion – the show all about the hobby of toy collecting and getting nostalgic about toy history!

Slime appears to be exploding out of the toy aisles today. But did you know that Slime has been a popular toy for over four decades? On today’s episode of Toysplosion, we’re exploring the history of the icky, gooey, cold and clammy goo known as Slime! Where did it come from? What is it made of? What toys used it the best? All of these questions are answered in this icky, sticky, oozey episode of Toysplosion!

Special thanks to my friend Norm of The Gaming Historian for additional research.
