Silly Putty on the Web
Sitting down with the Sunday newspaper comics and a wad of Silly Putty was once a childhood tradition for kids across America. When you press the putty against a newsprint comic, a perfect copy gets stuck, so you can stretch images of Snoopy for amusement. Take a look at how Silly Putty has transformed from a salmon-color goo into multi-colored and glow-in-the-dark varieties. The site also has photos and a few movie clips of Silly Putty masterpieces.
Eat a dessert that turns your tongue blue. Otter Pops have cute cartoon animals representing each tasty flavor of the icy treats. An artsy otter is the icon for rasberry while a guitar-playing cowboy otter takes his position as Poncho Punch. The site has recipes, character descriptions and even a poll to vote for your favorite otter character of all time.
