What is thinking putty?
All the putty from the “Intelligente Knete” brand has the same basic characteristics: It stretches like chewing gum, melts when put down, jumps like a ball, can be torn like paper and shatters like porcelain. What’s really great is that it’s odourless and leaves no icky stickiness on your hands. Furthermore, the putty contains no water so doesn’t dry up.
In addition to these characteristics, each type of thinking putty has special abilities. The products shown here are my favourites. Some of them are really simple but that's what makes them cool to play with.
Expose this putty to a light source and it will radiate an exotic yellow-orange in the darkness.

Say hello to green glittering putty that contains metal particles and comes to life when it’s close to a super magnet. The small magnet is included and also available separately.
Glitter particles make this putty look absolutely amazing.

And that's not it
Thinking putty is not just a fun toy; it’s also great for stress relief and promotes creativity. Thanks to its characteristics, it can also be used therapeutically to strengthen hand and finger muscles (e.g. for musicians, athletes, after surgery or for elderly people). Warning: This putty is addictive!
