If it’s the child’s first time to play with it, start by playing with it first to let them get comfortable to touch it.

Some kids, don’t like to touch something if it looks strange to them. If it’s the case, don’t get discouraged. Just keep trying!


If you want a Sparkling GAK, use the sparkling Glue instead or a regular one.
