It's time to get hands-on with a fistful of Google Goo. This stretchy ball of red fun works overtime to decrease stress and stretch your creativity.
It doesn't stain and it's non-toxic -- and endlessly satisfying to shape and squeeze. Comes in a handy storage tin. Age 3 and over.
Google Goo in Tins
Sadly the goo is no longer sold by Google, well not in tins anyway. We're not sure whether they just rebranded it as Silly Putty, selling it in smaller plastic containers, or because they needed the name GOO for their URL Shortener.
Either way, Google Goo in tins is no longer sold in the Google Store, so this web site acts as an memorial to the fabulous goo!
