Happy New Year! We are spending more time at home due to the new announcement of a third lockdown due to Covid-19. If you are a parent and looking for ideas on what to do to keep your little ones entertained during this challenging time, Zimpli Kids have the most unique range of toy products that we know every kid will love!
If you want to go out on your daily walk, why not make it more exciting for the kiddies by turning it into a SnoBall fight!
Simply take your SnoBall Battle pack and a bottle of water. *You should also take a bucket with you to mix the mixture* No more complaining!
Get any tub from your home, put it outside in your garden, fill with water then add in your Gelli or Slime play for hours of sensory outdoor fun. Our Gelli and Slime is certified biodegradable and easy to clean up.
Indoor Sensory Activities
Indoor activities are a real godsend in the winter lockdown when the weather is too miserable to head outdoors. Have you tried tuff trays or sensory bowls?
They are perfect for sensory development, fun and even educational learning.
Create a Jungle themed Gelli sensory tray. Create a bowl of colourful, green Gelli & place in front of a jungle themed picture book. Then add a selection of jungle animals figures for a unique way of learning and exploring animals.
Add this to your home-schooling timetable (You would no doubt be the coolest parent)
Get your Gelli and Slime from Amazon – https://amzn.to/3c5TCUy
We absolutely love this idea from @mummysfavourite. How realistic is that octopus! Made from our Gelli Baff.
It just goes to show how inventive you can get with our products! You can get your little one to create lots of different characters as an activity. Even create them together!
You’ve Probably seen our most famous products; Slime Baff and Gelli Baff. We have had so many great reviews from customers and influencers online. They are so unique and original its bound to keep your kids entertained for a few hours. Its 100% safe for your child and for your drains as they are certified biodegradable.
To dissolve the Gelli you add in the step two dissolver in and it changes back into water! Its just like MAGIC! To dissolve the slime all you need to do is add more water to dilute it and then it can be safely drained away.
We made it to Christmas! What a year! This will be our last blog of 2020 but do not worry! We will be back in the New year bringing you lots of awesome content on all social media platforms.
We wanted to take this opportunity to thank all our lovely customers because without you, we would not be where we are at today. Thank you for all the support you have shown us throughout the years!
As this is our last blog of the year, we wanted to make it extra special by telling you all about the highlights of the year and what we have planned for next year.
Things that Zimpli kids have done in 2020
In 2020 the team have been working hard to create a fully eco-friendly range. As Gelli and Slime are already certified biodegradable we said goodbye to plastic packaging and switched to paper and board. One small little step can help the environment massively.
Zimpli kids have also released a new Baff Bombz range, the Rainbow and Rocket Baff Bombz! They were proven to be very popular and sold out in a matter of weeks! WOW! Giving 100% of the net profits from the rainbow Baff Bombz to NHS Charities together.
This year Zimpli kids also helped with the manufacturing and supply of PPE including alcohol hand sanitisers, Facemasks, visors, and gloves to help out with demand during the pandemic.
All in all, it’s been quite a busy year for Zimpli kids and are excited for what the new year brings!
What we have in store for 2021
Zimpli kids HQ have been very busy discussing and planning 2021’s new products. You saw it here first folks!
Here are a few of our new products we are currently working on which are set to release in 2021! Keep an eye out for all updates, you do not want to miss out!
Moon and Star Baff Bombz
Since our Rainbow and Rocket baff bombz have done so well this year, we have decided expand the range further with Moon and Star Baff Bombz! Keep your eyes out for even more in the future.
New Year’s resolutions!
We asked the marketing team to tell us what their new year’s resolutions are when they return to work in the new year. Here were their answers.
Niamh- “To be healthier (mind and body) and also I want to see and do more things.”
Oliver- “Don’t take things for granted”
Elizabeth- “Stop stressing about life so much. Live in the here and now and enjoy it.”
Jess- “Don’t be fat”
ZIMPLI KIDS NEW YEARS RESOLUTION IS TO KEEP CREATING INNOTIVE CREATIVE TOYS AND KEEP CHILDREN SMILING!
We wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year! We are looking forward to a fresh new year and speaking to you all again. Let us hope 2021 is a better year for all of us!

Christmas is a special time of year where all the family get together, getting all cosy with your feet up, fire on, cracking open your favourite beverage and so much more! This year is going to be a little bit strange; we all know that.
Do not fear we have the thing that will keep you and your children busy during these challenging times.
There are plenty of things to create with Zimpli kids’ products. It is a perfect learning/play activity for them days between Christmas and new year when you don’t know what day it is. The marketing team prepared and collected a few of their favourite creations this year.
Snowman Tuff Tray
“For this step we used big googly eyes and for the nose we mixed in some yellow Gelli powder with the leftover red to create orange. This prevented waste of the Gelli which helped us create new fun and exciting colours.”
TOP TIP! - Try mixing different Gelli Baff colours together to create new colours
Spot the difference (Activity)
Check out this little activity for your little ones to try out! Spot the difference! See how many you can find by circling on the right image! (There are 6 to find!)
Now let us get to the fun part!
Once your Crackle Baff has fully crackled and dissolved, pour the Crackle Baff water to one side of the tray, creating a nice icy sea and then add all your animal figures to the mix. The team chose to add animals that live in the arctic! You can teach your little ones all about them too!
2020 has been a strange year to say the least and a 2021 without any Toy Fairs is so disappointing for the Toy industry. In light of this, Zimpli Kids decided to create their first Interactive brochure.
We have been busy developing a range of new lines for 2021 and what better way to showcase these than in an interactive brochure with fun product demos whilst meeting some of the team.
Head of Marketing at Zimpli Kids, Jessica Coy commented; “As we aren’t able to see any customers at Tradeshows in 2021, we thought that an interactive brochure would be a fantastic way to showcase our new and existing lines! We actually had so much fun creating the videos, so we hope everyone enjoys it as much as we did. Don’t forget to watch our bloopers video on the last page to see the parts that didn’t go to plan…”
Zimpli Kids have an exciting selection of brand new products including Baff Bombz, Galaxy Slime and a fully
Eco friendly, biodegradable range.

Even though our products are vibrant and flamboyant, with a variety of sensory elements from scents to bright colours; they may scream to parents “Eczema outbreak waiting to happen!”, there’s absolutely nothing to worry about as our products do so much more than provide endless hours of safe fun.
However, if that’s not enough to ease your worrying here are a few reviews given to us by parents whose children have eczema:
At Zimpli Kids, we always want to be extremely honest with parents about what goes into our super fun and unique products, as we believe that by being open and honest, we will keep the whole experience stress free. So, that all the mummies and daddies out there will have no-doubt in their mind that their children will be safe and sound using our products.
Here’s a bit more information for some extra peace of mind: our super safe, certified biodegradable powder formulations are simply mixed with food-grade colourants and a splash of fruity scented fragrance. Also, all our products are fully tested, to ensure they're 100% safe and we are always happy to provide testing certification on request for all products!
However, as with all new products that come into contact with your skin, we always recommend a patch test for those with sensitive skin, the same as you would with a new shampoo or soap.
If you have any questions or would like to know any further information regarding our products and Eczema or Psoriasis, please email email@example.com.
Here is the moment you have all been waiting for! Introducing our new Rocket and Rainbow Baff Bombz. You have probably seen these all over our social media pages and if you’re reading this then you’re interested… obviously!
You already know our famous Slime and Gelli Baff but if you fancy something a bit different this is the perfect place to start. The Zimpli Kids team are going absolutely crazy over them and know that you will love them too.
The Story Behind the Baff Bombz
A few months ago, we were all getting on with our work (being busy as usual!). Then one of the Zimpli team shouted, “I HAVE AN IDEA!”. We eagerly listened to their ideas tentatively, “We can create a rainbow Baff Bomb and the cloud releases a vibrant rainbow”, we all thought this was an amazing idea, it’s so unique and different! We all gathered around then started collecting our fabulous ideas and developing them even further which lead us to creating the Rocket Baff Bomb too. From thinking of the idea, to creating the Baff Bomb, testing, and designing the packaging, this produced what we would call the ultimate bath time experience!
Zimpli Kids mission is to do their bit for the planet, whilst creating fun, safe toys and the new Baff Bombz are certainly no exception. The Rainbow and Rocket Baff Bombz are 100% safe on skin, biodegradable and a huge 98% of the packaging is recyclable.
The Baff Bomb comes in its very own box with clear instructions on how to use the product. (You need to make sure you read these as there is a special technique to follow so you get the best effect of the Baff Bomb).

We are excited to announce that we have taken our educational products to the next level, not only are they fun, but they are now eco-friendly. The range uses our certified biodegradable powders, paper bags instead of plastic bags plus fully recyclable ‘no frills’ packaging ideal for classrooms.
Zimpli have moved from plastic bags to paper bags which can be recycled with the retail box and leaflet in standard paper/card recycling.
It isn’t just the educational range that has had an eco-makeover, all of Zimpli’s retail boxes and CDU’s have been changed to recycled board
Zimpli Kids now manufacture 95%+ of our products in our company owned UK factory with ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 accreditation.
The Gelli and Slime powder is a certified biodegradable toy after both passing the Bio-degradation Test OECD 301B as tested by Intertek. The OECD 301B test adds a product to sewerage, and measures its rate of bio-degradation. Zimpli Kids products are classed as biodegradable according to the standard.
