Remember when slime was a thing? Stop the presses, ’cause it’s coming back.

Jell-O has just announced their newest product and it’s something that will excite the 90s kids in all of us. Introducing: The new Jell-O Play Edible Slime.

Just like the name implies, it’s slime that you can play with… and eat. Imagine the gooey, slimy, satisfying texture in unicorn pink (strawberry) and monster green (lime), plus all the fun you can have with it.

This awesomeness is pretty easy to make, too. Just add water and voila, a bucket of awesomeness!

And though I’m pretty sure that most young kids won’t know the 90s Nickelodeon context that this magical material has for us, millennial parents will surely enjoy playtime by introducing slime to their kids.

Each tub will retail for US$ 10 and they’ll make two batches of slime. They’re available for pre-order now on Amazon and they’ll ship out starting December.

Global Sources: Lovots

A robot meant to love and be loved

Feeling lonely? Here’s a robot who exists to love and be loved.

Meet Tomato and Wasabi. These Lovots (derived from the words Love and Robot) were developed by a Japanese startup called GrooveX.

They aren’t the typical robots that try to be an all-around helper. Its purpose is to stay cute, get your attention, interact with you, and make you happy. Emotional bonds with robots may seem implausible, but it’s difficult to ignore them. Especially with their kind, googly eyes that draw your attention.

Moreover, they laugh when you play with them, fall asleep when you cuddle and remembers if you were mean as if they have emotions.

While this may be shocking and groundbreaking, the creators of Lovot believe this robot can make an impact on relieving stress. For now, it’s too early to tell but one thing’s for sure: Lovots are here for you to love and they won’t leave you, unlike your ex.

At a show like Global Sources iPhone cases are a dime a dozen, but what caught our attention are companies with a commitment to sustainability.

Shenzhen Bobotel Technology

Take Shenzhen Bobotel Technology for example, who makes eco-friendly cases made of wheat straw — a biodegradable alternative to traditional plastic.

They can make cases for your iPhone, Samsung, or Huawei phones, in any color you desire. Each case starts at 90 cents at a minimum order of 50 units.

C&V Global

Guangzhou-based C&V Global offers similar products, too. The company has been certified by the Global Recycled Standard.

They have iPhone cases made from recycled plastic waste. In its purest form, it looks like a simple, clear jelly case but it can come in a variety of colors in both matte and glossy finishes.

They also make biodegradable cases made of wheat straw or bamboo fiber and thermoplastics. These cases can be engraved with your favorite pro-environment slogans as well.

The product decomposes naturally after two years if you decide to discard them. You can buy the cases through CTunes.
