This is a list of toys created by the popular children's television network Nickelodeon.


A number of molding substances for children's play were created and sold by the American children's television channel Nickelodeon, through toy company partners in the 1990s. Like most molding compounds, they could be kept in their container to retain plasticity, or molded and allowed to harden overnight. They featured a wide variety of compounds with different attributes.

Nickelodeon/MTV Networks (1986)

Green Slime Shampoo

Green Slime Shampoo was among the very first consumer products released by Nickelodeon.[1] It was a green-colored shampoo inspired by You Can't Do That on Television, produced and distributed by Nickelodeon/MTV Networks as a promotion for the channel.[1] Advertised with the slogan "Gets you clean, won't turn you green!" kids could emulate being slimed like the performers on You Can't Do That on Television while taking showers or baths. The shampoo was sold through television commercials on Nickelodeon, in select retail stores, and was also featured as a prize during early seasons of Double Dare.[1]

Green Slime Liquid Soap

Released along with the shampoo, Green Slime Liquid Soap was green colored liquid hand soap, also produced directly by Nickelodeon/MTV Networks.

Mattel (1992–present)


Nickelodeon/Mattel's most popular compound;[citation needed] the product was inspired by the Nickelodeon show Double Dare. Similar to Wham-O's Super Stuff from the mid-1960s,[citation needed] the original edition was manufactured in 1992, and then re-issued in 1994 for the Nickelodeon Deluxe Gift Set which included one canister of Nickelodeon Gak and two canisters of Nickelodeon Floam. It was marketed on the fact that, unlike most of the compounds, it made a "fart" noise when squeezed into its clear, star-shaped container. Gak (among other varieties and accessories) returned to store shelves with modern-day Nickelodeon branding in 2012 and 2017; both 2010s incarnations were produced by NSI International.

The name "gak" had previously been used by Marc Summers and the Double Dare crew to refer to slime used on the show. The name had originated as a street term for heroin. This was a source of amusement behind the scenes of Double Dare when Nickelodeon used the term for the toy Gak, unaware of its origin in drug culture.[2]

Nickelodeon/Mattel's second kind of Gak that glowed in the dark after exposure to light. This variety was manufactured in 1994 and advertised in 1996 alongside the Make-Your-Own Gak Lab. The second and third incarnations were manufactured by NSI International in 2012 and 2017.
Solar Gak
Nickelodeon/Mattel's third kind of Gak that changed color when exposed to sunlight. This variety was manufactured in 1995. A second incarnation was slated to be resold by NSI International in 2013, with varying colors.
Smell My Gak
Nickelodeon/Mattel's fourth version of Gak that was scented. It was manufactured in 1996 with scents including Pickles, Flowers, Vanilla ice cream, Buttered Popcorn, Sunscreen, Hot Dog, Pepperoni Pizza, and Baby Powder. The cover of the original toy featured child actor Sean Martinez. This variety was resold by NSI International in 2013 with scents including Green Apple, Vanilla, Flowers, Bacon, Garbage, and Stinky Shoe.

Gak Activity Sets

Gak Pak
Three different color Gaks in one big container.
Gak Vac
A toy vacuum that sucks Gak up and spits it out. Four monster figures (called "Gakoids" in the 2012 re-release) are included. The toy was re-released with a new design by NSI International in 2012.
Gak's Alive
Gak's Alive was a dark black-colored Gak that was filled with magnetic particles or fine iron filings. The activity set also included a "magic wand" with a magnet on the end that could be used to entice the Gak to creep or move on its own.
Gak Inflator
A toy machine where Gak is placed underneath an O-ring and pumped until a bubble is made and popped; many users claimed that it dries out the compound quickly.
Gak Copier
A playset where the user draws on the foldable tablet, places some Gak on the other side, and closes the tablet. When opened, the drawing is transferred onto the Gak (similar to Silly Putty). This accessory was re-released in 2012 by NSI International.
This was a container for Gak that looked like a weird creature head whose eyes, nose and mouth would pop out when the Gak was squeezed in through the bottom of the head container. A newer version was made by NSI International in 2012, under the name "Gak Splat!"
Gak Color Mixer
A new playset released in 2012 by NSI International. It includes six colors of Gak (Blue, Red, Yellow, Green, Silver, and White) that can be mixed to create a new Gak color.
Gak Splat!
Gak Super-Stretch
A 2013 Gak product by NSI International. It is basically a rebrand of the 2012 Gak colors with new packaging and a new formula which is identical to that of the original Gak. This line was presumably created due to customer complaints about their Gak not being squishy and stretchy like the television commercials show; instead being crumbly, sticky, slimy, and not stretchy.
Mood Gak
A 2013 Gak product by NSI International which is similar to 1995's Solar Gak. This variety changes color to the touch and returns to its normal color in sunlight.
Gak Twisted
A 2013 Gak product by NSI International. It is simply two Gak colors mixed together in a swirl-shaped container. This variety (and ones that preceded and followed) utilizes the super-stretch formula.
Galactic Gak
A 2014 Gak product by NSI International. It consists of three translucent, glittery Gak colors in outer space-themed containers (i.e. an atom; a shooting star).

Zog Logs

Zog Logs were mini multi-colored logs that can be cut, bent, shaped, and attached to other structures to make various forms and shapes. This was first released in 1995.


Smud was a Nickelodeon/Mattel compound that was much like Play-Doh. It was marketed under the idea that unlike the previous compounds, it would not dry out if left out of its container. Each pack of Smud came with its own "Geronimold." It was from 1995-1997.


Sqand, or "Magic sand", begins as ordinary sand, but is dyed and coated in a hydrophobic substance. This allows each particle to stay dry in water, so that underwater the sand appears not to have the same properties that any other sand has while wet: its cohesive force was greater than its adhesive force to water, so it preferred to stick together in surrealistically tall forms, rather than spread out as expected. When taken out of water Squand immediately returned to normal looking, dry sand. Mattel sold it off quickly. Originally marketed in 1991, it was later sold off, being re-branded without Nickelodeon trademarks today; first by RoseArt in 1995, and again being renamed "Aqua Sand", mainly directed at girls.


Zzand is a modeling compound very similar to Play-Doh, however, its defining feature is the sand distributed throughout it. Marketed with the slogan "Looks like Sand, Molds like Dough!", its default color is green and is notorious for being extremely messy.[citation needed]

Jakks Pacific/Flying Colors (1999–2004)


A Nickelodeon/Flying Colors/Jakks Pacific compound similar to Gak but almost transparent. It was made to promote Double Dare 2000. Besides the regular Goooze, there were other variations of it such as Glow-In-The-Dark Goooze, Scented Goooze, and Glitter Goooze. In later years, Goooze was sold as "Goooze Toons" which had a Nicktoons character (such as SpongeBob SquarePants, Patrick Star, Cosmo and Wanda) with Goooze included to put in the character and watch it ooze out when opened. This, along with Gak Splat Balls (Below) were the most popular compounds that Jakks Pacific and Flying Colors made.

In 2014, this compound was revived by Spin Master without any Nickelodeon branding under the "Goozerk" name as part of its "Wacky-tivities" brand line.

Gak Splat Balls

A Nickelodeon/Flying Colors compound that is not like Gak in its properties, but shares a similar name. It resembles a cross between Gak and Goooze and unlike other compounds, it was not moldable, having a ball shape. Often it was packaged with a mitt of the same substance for playing catch. This, along with Goooze, were one of the most popular toys that Jakks Pacific/Flying Colors made.

Also it was the first compound to be released under the "Nick-tivities" banner. All compounds following were released under the same banner.


A green Nickelodeon slime compound was sold in Fall 2008, released by Jakks Pacific. It was released again in March 2012 along with Gak and Floam. In 2017, they were all rereleased with logo changes.


A Nickelodeon/Flying colors compound that is Nickelodeon's alternative to "Silly String". It came in different colors, and different varieties such as Smatter Blaster, Spit Smatter, and Fatter Smatter. However, it was voluntarily recalled in 2003 due to incidents where the aerosol cans forcefully broke apart, resulting in a laceration injury to a consumer and several incidents involving property damage.

In 2014, Spin Master revived this product without Nickelodeon branding as "Spatter" under their "Wacky-tivities" banner. The only significant difference from Smatter is that the compound does not grow.


A modeling compound that was like Play-Doh packaged in a squeezable pouch. It was sold in sets with Nickelodeon and Nick Jr. characters.

Splish Splat!
