Ewww! Creepy crawly creatures! This Fright Factory Creature Creator is the perfect toy at this time of year. Kids can make rubbery creatures like bugs, worms, and spiders come to life with this easy to use 3-D kit! The timing couldn’t be better with Halloween right around the corner. The best thing about this toy is how easy it is to operate. Let’s see how it’s done!
The kit comes with the fright factory creator stage, three molds, one tube of green gel, and a bonus tube of blue gel. The stage requires 3 AAA batteries (not included). Simply fill a mold with the “Ewwgoo”, which you use like a marker, and place it on the creation maker stage. The gel is a bit sticky, but not to worry! The molds contain the goo and they won’t leak one drop!
Once the mold is in place, simply turn the stage on and rotate the crank to move the UV light bar back and forth over the mold. The UV light will harden the gel with each pass. That’s right- no heat! There is no need to worry about your child getting burned which makes this toy great for kids 6+ during individual or quiet playtime!
Once your are done with the UV light you can easily pop the bugs out of the mold. Tiana’s bugs turned out a little sticky, but it was rainy all weekend. If we had used the UV light a bit longer they would have hardened better. Despite the little bit of sticky, she wanted to keep making these icky creepy critters! Good thing we had a refill kit which came with 3 more molds (there is even a rat!) and red and green tubes of Ewwgoo! She can’t wait to see what other refill kits have for critter molds!
We would recommend this Creature Creator kit to any kid that has an admiration for the smaller, gross creatures out there. It sure is fun making your own Fright Factory critter zoo! Every little prankster will get a kick out of this kit. Just ask Tiana’s grandma how scary these critters can be when you find one hiding under the pillow 😉
