It’s Time to Get ‘Gak’-ked!

Popular Modeling Toys from Nickelodeon – Gak and Floam – Have Hit Canadian Toy Stores, says RP Toys

Online PR News – 25-October-2012 – Mississauga, Ontario – MISSISSAUGA, Ont. (October 23, 2012) – Gak is back! And Floam is in the home … or at least it will be soon now that both products have hit Canadian store shelves. Distributed in Canada by RP Toys, Nickelodeon’s Gak and Floam provide hours of squishing, stretching and modeling fun for children of all ages.

Anyone who remembers the ‘90s will remember the Gak attack. Now it’s back, with even more bright colours and accessories. As soon as kids touch it, they develop a knack for Gak – rolling it, stretching it, bouncing it, blowing bubbles with it or even just squishing it to make wacky sounds.

Gak comes in six fabulous colours: Rebel Red, You Blue It, Yakkity Yellow, Goo Green, Tickled Pink and Purple Panic, each one in its own container for a suggested retail price of $9.99. Also available is Gak In The Dark (MSRP$10.99), available in four glow-in-the dark colours that go psychedelic when the lights are out; and, the Gak Vac (MSRP$24.99), a plunger that slurps Gak up and pushes it out as one great big blob.

Floam is an incredibly pliable, reusable modeling compound that delivers hours of creative fun. Kids can mold their own masterpieces or turn just about any object into a Floam-covered sensation. Models will harden overnight or Floam can be squished back into its original container for use again and again.

Available in six inspiring colours – Rockin’ Red, Blazin’ Blue, Electric Yellow, Glimmer Green, Posh Pink and Purple Power – Floam has a suggested retail price of $9.99. Glo Floam, which comes in glow-in-the-dark blue, green, orange and pink, has a suggested retail price of $10.99. Also offered is the Funky Flowers accessory kit featuring a vase, flower cutters, stem forms and lots of Floam for a suggest retail prices of $24.99.
