*This is a collaborative post – for more details, see my Disclosure Page Our little one has just gone 3 and her favourite games at the moment have a heavy dose of role playing. There is nothing that she likes better than getting her dolls and toys together and taking them on an adventure. They all have names and they all have their own roles to play in my little one’s imagination. So when we were approached by Zimpli we were delighted when they asked us to do a Zimpli Kids Gelli Worlds Fantasy Pack review!

Zimpli Kids Gelli Worlds Fantasy Pack Review
It is not the first Zimpli product that Elizabeth has tried, just before Christmas we reviewed their SnoBall Play product, and we even got to make an indoor snowman!
Zimpli Kids is an innovative brand that make messy, sensory and educational products for both indoor and outdoor play. They make
- Gelli Baff and Slime Baff for bath times,
- SnoBall Play for making snow indoors and outdoors,
- and even have a Slime Blaster Gun for messy fun play.
One of their latest products, however, is the Gelli Worlds range. This comes in 2 varieties, a dinosaur edition and a fantasy pack. We were very kindly gifted the fantasy pack to review. As soon as I saw the product, I knew that it was exactly the kind of thing that Elizabeth would love!
What’s in the pack?
Inside the pack you find everything you need to make your own miniature Zimpli Kids Gelli Worlds adventure.
- a blow up inflatable tray
- 8 fantasy toy pieces (including unicorns, fairies and a toadstool)
- 5 bags of Gelli powder, meaning that the kit lasts at least 5 uses.
Zimpli Kids Gelli Worlds is skin safe, non irritant, non toxic, drain safe and non staining. Which is perfect when you add a toddler into the mix.
Elizabeth loves to pour, so I inflated the tray (which was really easy even without a pump) and let her pour the required amount of warm water. You can add more water to make for a watery mix, but we stuck to the detailed instructions given.
Then we added the Gelli powder. And the fun began.
The first thing that Elizabeth loved watching was as the powder turned the water pink, then started to turn to Gelli. She loved the texture, rubbing her hands through the mixture as it changed and thickened.
The 8 fantasy toys was even forgotten about for a while, as the sensations of playing with the Gelli took over. But then the toys were added, and the fairies and unicorns had a little adventure wading through the tray.
Finally, as the heroes had won the day, Elizabeth turned her focus back to the sensations of playing with the Gelli. The jug that we had used for the water was filled with the pink gel, and then it was poured back into the tray.
When play came to an end, clean up was pretty easy. The majority of the gel was amazingly still in the tray. This flushed away easily down the toilet. It left no residue or marks. The tray was also easily washed out with warm water, and more warm water was used to wipe down the table top. The Gelli dissolves really well in warmer water. So I found using a tea towel soaked in really warm water got rid of any residue easily. Then all I needed to do was dry the area. No stains or marks left.
The other great thing is that all the kit can be used at least another 4 times. To be honest, the inflatable tray will probably get a lot more use in our house. It is a great size for all kinds of play.
Our Verdict overall?
We loved the Zimpli Kids Gelli Worlds Fantasy Pack. Play lasted a lot longer than I expected, and E really enjoyed the feel of the Gelli. The pack is great value when you see that you get 5 separate sachets of Gelli powder. We will use it again when Elizabeth has her cousin or a friend over to play. And it is a light and small package, perfect for sending as a small parcel if posting or giving as a gift.
