Compounds

A number of molding substances for children's play were created and sold by the children's television channel Nickelodon and toy company Mattel in the 1990s. Like most molding compounds, they could be kept in their container to retain plasticity, or molded and allowed to harden overnight. They featured a wide variety of compounds with different attributes.

Slime

Nickelodeon's first compound, whose idea was first taken from the classic Nickelodeon show You Can't Do That on Television. Nickelodeon Slime was first manufactured in the 1980s. Nickelodeon slime was sold again in Fall 2008 but was released by Jakks Pacific.

Green Slime Shampoo

This was another compound based on You Can't Do That on Television. It had green slime (actually green soap) that got you clean instead of getting slimed. This was also featured on a few episodes of Double Dare.

Gak

Nickelodeon/Mattel's most popular compound; the idea was taken from the Nicklodeon show Double Dare. The original edition was manufactured in 1992, and then re-issued in 1994 for the Nickelodeon Deluxe Gift Set which included 1 canister of Nickelodeon Gak and 2 canisters of Nickelodeon Floam. It was marketed on the fact that, unlike most of the compounds, it made a "fart" noise when squeezed into its clear, star-shaped container.

Gak-in-the-Dark

Nickelodeon/Mattel's second kind of Gak that glowed in the dark after exposure to light. This variety was manufactured in 1994.

Solar Gak

Nickelodeon/Mattel's third kind of Gak that changed color when exposed to sunlight. This variety was manufactured in 1995.

Smell My Gak

Nickelodeon/Mattel's fourth iteration of Gak that was scented. It was manufactured in 1996. The scents varied from pickles, flowers, vanilla ice cream, sunscreen, hot dog, pepperoni pizza, and baby powder. The cover of the toy featured child actor Sean Martinez.

Gak Activity Sets

Gak Pak

Different color Gaks in one big container.

Gak Vac

A toy vacuum that sucks Gak up and spits it out. It also includes 4 monsters that you can gak with the vacuum

Magnetic Gak

This was a dark black colored Gak that was filled with some sort of magnetic particles or fine iron filings. The activity set also included a "magic wand" with a magnet on the end that could be used to entice the gak to creep or move on its own.

Gak Inflator

A toy machine that is used to pump Gak into a bubble and then burst it.

Gak Copier

A playset where you draw something on the foldable tablet, place some Gak on the other side, close the tablet and the drawing is transferred onto the Gak.

Gakoids

This was a container for Gak that looked like a weird creature head whose eyes, nose and mouth would pop out when the Gak was squeezed in through the bottom of the head container.

Floam

In 1994, Nickelodeon and Mattel first manufactured Floam, originally called "bubble-gak", a compound composed of "microbeads" in a foam-like substance. It came in different colors.

It is now being sold again, but without Nickelodeon branding.

Smud

A Nickelodeon/Mattel compound that was much like Play-Doh, but slicker. It was marketed under the idea that unlike the previous compounds, it would not dry out if left out of its container.

Goooze

A Nickelodeon/Flying Colors compound similar to Gak but is more watery and does not make a farting noise when squeezed.[citation needed]

Gak Splat Balls

A Nickelodeon/Flying Colors compound that is not like Gak in its properties, but shares a similar name. It resembles a cross between Gak and Gooze and unlike other compounds, it was not moldable, having a ball shape. Often it was packaged with a mitt of the same substance for playing catch.

Also the first compound to be released under the "Nick-tivities" banner. All compounds following were released under the same banner.

Gak Scraps

A new Nickelodeon/Flying Colors compound seemingly made of hardened scraps of Gak Splat held together.

Skweeez

A modeling compound that was like Play-Doh but had a more Marshmallow-like feel.

Sqand

Sqand, or "Magic sand," begins as ordinary sand, but is dyed and coated in a hydrophobic substance. This allows each particle to stay dry in water, so that underwater the sand appears to have the same properties that any other sand has while wet, but out of the water immediately returns to normal, dry sand.

Zzand

Zzand is a modeling compound very similar to Play-Doh, however, its defining feature is the sand distributed throughout it. It is notorious for being extremely messy, and the default color is green.

Other toys

Flash Screen

The Flash Screen was meant to be played in a dark room and included a white glow in the dark poster with a two in one "Zapper" which featured a camera flash top with flashlight bottom. The user would turn on the camera flash and leave a shadow silhouette of themselves on the white poster emitting a green glow. The user can then take the flashlight pen and draw on their silhouette. The toy was eventually canceled due to claims of health hazards with children experiencing seizures due to staring at the flashbulb too much.

Timeblaster Alarm Clock

An alarm clock featuring a radio and light function. The light is a green zig-zag shaped tube running across the top of the clock. The alarm function can be set to radio or one of the pre-set alarm noises. The noises always begin with a rocket blast-off noise as someone says "3...2...1... ." The alarms available are a spring bounce sound, the Nickelodeon theme (Nick Nick Nick Nick, N-Nick Nick Nick, Nickelodeon), a rooster call, or simple beeping. A second version of the clock featured 8 noises. The clock display is green. It features one circular speaker on the left side of the clock. The radio antenna included is simply a flexible rubber-covered wire.[1]

ToonTwister 3D

A game where you can create your own Nicktoons episodes based on SpongeBob SquarePants, Rugrats, The Fairly Odd Parents, and Jimmy Neutron. Plankton appears often to give you instructions on how to make your episodes (his help can be turned off). You can choose scenes, characters, and props. To make a character talk, you can choose from the list or record your own thing for a character to say if you have a microphone. You also have the ability to type credits and e-mail your episodes to your friends.

Nick Innovations

This was a series of fake toys like self-eating brusell sprouts, invisible hamsters etc. The toys came out in 1997.

There are also some other electronics with Nickelodeon themes, the talkblaster (phone), blastbox (boom box with cassette player), CD blast box (boom box with a CD player), blast pads, 2 blast packs (backpack), photoblaster (toy camera) and gakulator (calculator).
