Can it get any easier!? I don't think so. It comes together FAST and guarantees hours of fun. I should warn you though.

Once the galaxy colors are squished together long enough the whole ball will turn a glittery blue-black, which in itself is beautiful. Once your galaxy is gone, switch gears and start playing with your BLACK HOLE SLIME! See if you can keep your toys from getting sucked into the black hole!

Just make sure you use plastic toys that are easily washable.
