Personal experience

Foam Balls for Slime all the way. I have a young cousin that loves this product. I bought her it for birthday along with some other things and she was so happy. She began making the slime right away and she had such an amazing fun. She already wants more the next time I come.

So I can confirm that this product is great for children. They will have a fun time and it will keep them busy for a while. The Foam Balls for Slime is also very affordable so I highly recommend it to the parents.

Prefer this one

I prefer the Foam Balls for Slime and the last time we used them to make some decorations for my niece birthday party. Even the adults had some fun using them. lol. From what I have seen I think that children actually prefer the foam balls for slime. We are planning to make some Christmas decorations using those foam balls. I am sure the kids will be delighted.

Goo

Beads are problematic because kids are both curious and clumsy. Half of them end up swallowed, the other half end up spilled everywhere so that you're finding them all the back to the incident in 1998 where you tipped the canister. Slime is a long-loved childhood experience. They can learn something about the nature of chemical absorbency while they play with a "gross" wad of goo. And since they tend to be water based it won't matter if it spills.

If I had to choose between the two I would pick this. I like the colors and the clear description.

I think that this product is so much better for kids or even toddlers. They are soft and fun to play and they make kids laugh a lot. They're hard to crush so this is very good.

I can't tell which one of them will safe. You can't tell whether a child swallow beads, because most of them curios enough to do such thing, and might getting themselves. atleast, for the moment children will avoid dangerous beads. Most of the manufacturer, do it otherwise doing some sort of surveys, so that it will be their basis of putting new trends of their product at the same time, it is safe to use for every toddler to play with.
