JELL-O's New Edible Slimes Are As Fun to Eat As They Are to Play With

JELL-O has good news for anyone who has ever gotten hungry watching slime videos on YouTube. As MovieWeb reports, the snack brand has added two new products to their JELL-O Play line: Monster Slime and Unicorn Slime, both of which are 100 percent edible.

JELL-O edible slime starts as a powdered mix. At home, kids and parents can stir three scoops of the powder together with one scoop of warm water for 30 seconds then add an additional tablespoon of warm water to make the slime.

Like the slime you find in toy stores or the DIY kind, this slime is meant to be played with. "The slime stretches if you pull it slowly, but snaps if you pull it apart fast," the product description reads. "It's firm if you squeeze it, but it can also pour and drip like a liquid!" And after they're done playing with their slime, kids (and fun-loving adults) can eat it. As for the slime that does't get eaten and ends up on clothes and hands, JELL-O says it washes off easily with soap and water.

The JELL-O slime comes in two flavors, lime for Monster Slime and strawberry for Unicorn Slime, and will be available in select stores beginning in December. It's part of a line of interactive snack products from JELL-O, which includes pudding pop molds and dirt cups kits.

18 Disney Characters Just Got the LEGO Treatment

If you’ve ever wondered what one of Disney's princesses might look like standing next to Batman or Harry Potter, now's your chance to find out. LEGO has created minifigures of 18 characters from beloved Disney movies, and they’re a pretty diverse bunch.

There are Disney princesses and heroes, like Jasmine, Elsa, and Hercules. There are offbeat favorites, like Jack and Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas. A couple villains were thrown into the mix for good measure, and classic characters like Mickey and Minnie Mouse are also represented.

It has been a big week for both LEGO and Disney. The toy company announced the impending release of a 751-piece set that recreates the boat from Steamboat Willie, the 1928 short film that launched Mickey to stardom. The timing is also fitting, considering that Mickey recently celebrated his 90th birthday (not too bad for a mouse).

The S.S. Willie set will be available on April 1, but fans will have to wait a little longer for the Disney minifigures. Those will be available on the LEGO Store website and in stores nationwide starting May 1. Each minifigure costs $3.99.

Until then, check out some of the figures below, or browse LEGO’s selection of Disney-themed sets.

Mickey Mouse recently turned 90 years old, and soon, you’ll be able to celebrate with LEGO. Steamboat Willie, the classic Disney short film that introduced Mickey Mouse to the world in 1928, has now been recreated in a LEGO set that will be released on April 1.

The 751-piece LEGO version of the S.S. Willie features grayscale bricks that recreate the original black-and-white aesthetic of the original film. The 10-inch-long LEGO boat features moving steam pipes and paddle wheels and comes with new Mickey and Minnie minifigures. It’s also equipped with a ship’s wheel, a life buoy, a buildable bell, and a working crane that can lift the vessel’s potato-bin cargo.

The Steamboat Willie set was born out of the company’s fan-generated LEGO Ideas initiative several years ago. Creator Máté Szabó submitted the idea to LEGO in June 2016, then LEGO designers John Ho and Crystal Marie Fontan worked to adapt the set for retail sale, creating decorative elements and the new Mickey and Minnie Mouse minifigures.
