ANNA, IL (KFVS) -

We're not pouring bubble bath into a tub; it's Squishy Baff. The makers promise we can turn water into goo and turn it back again. To be safe though, we're trying it out in a kiddie pool in Anna, Illinois.

Heather Craft and I followed the specific instructions for the kiddie pool, but it's going to take a lot more packages of Squishy Baff before this mini pool is full of goo.

We dump it into a small container next, just to see if this gunk really turns into goo.

"Gooey!"

"Me, me, me, me!" the kids excitedly said.

It's a hit for toddlers and kids alike. So, that gave us this idea: maybe we can turn their water table into goo for even more fun?

In no time, there's just enough to add in to make this extra gooey. Landen has a squishy beard! Sophie likes it so much she's sitting in it!

But, will mom and dad like it come clean up time?

"I don't see it going down the drain," said Heather.

The directions say to dump in special dissolving powder and swirl around. Immediately, we can feel the goo dissolving and turning back to water. However, Heather said after six hours the goo still did not entirely wash down the drain or fully turn back into water like promised. 

Plus, at two bath packs for $10, it could take some cash to fill up a tub or kiddie pool. So, we'll stick to the small water table and make this a fun outdoor toy.

"I'd give it a 'C'."

Squishy Baff soaks up a passing, average grade C on this Does it Work test.  I bought it at Target in Cape Girardeau.
