Retro Slime Company

When we remodeled my bathroom a few years ago, it took five people to get the cast iron bathtub out of the house and onto the lawn.  It was heavy and awkward and built for an apocalypse.

In the dead of summer, sitting in the bathtub on the front lawn, I watched the new plastic tub get hoisted over someone’s shoulders and eased into the doorway with no problem.  And I thought, “They just don’t make things the way they used to.”  My cast iron bathtub could’ve lived another hundred years.  The house was built in– you guessed it– 1973.

Retro Slime Company is a blast from the past, for sure.  It gives you a sense of nostalgia and smells like childhood, but the real reason you should buy our slimes is that we have that retro quality; we’re made better, and we’re built to last.

Our stance at retro is to use the highest quality of ingredients.  We’re the Mary Quant of slime.  If it’s time for breakfast, we’re taking you to Tiffany’s if you catch our drift.  For example, if our products call for some lotion, we’re picking Lubriderm.  We’re not picking out bulk drug store lotion to save a buck.  We know that quality products come from quality ingredients.

I love a good Costco pie as much as anyone, but there’s nothing better than my mother-in-law’s homemade Texas chocolate cake from a recipe passed down from the back of an old Betty Crocker box in the early 60s.  We’re homemade, not manufactured.  There’s a little love and care and elbow grease in each one of our slimes.  Manufactured slime is like a Twinkie.  Sure, they have a shelf life of 500 years, but they taste a little rubbery and aren’t nearly as good as something fresh.

We give you everything you need to keep your slimes long-lasting and in great condition.  While most companies give you powdered Borox, we send ours pre-made in liquid form. Most don’t know that it’s the breathing in of the powdered Borox that can be harmful. We keep your safety first.  We’re also one of the only companies to send a slime softener, and ours does not contain any vinegar, so there is no off-putting smell.

Retro Slime Company is all about the full experience.  From purchase to package to unboxing, we want you to feel like your mom gave you a dollar and set you loose in Montgomery Ward no matter who you are: young, old, man or woman.  My vintage Charlie Brown book says, “Happiness is a warm puppy,” but to us, happiness is a box of slime!

    Where did you put your old bathtub? It would make a nice decoration as a planter for flowers.

    I’ve bought from here multiple times and I cant say anything bad they are wonderful and I am addicted to them and though a lot of the references go over my head I still know a lot of them and I love how they give you the background of the item or idea or whatever it is the slime is based on it’s not only a fun experience for the slime it’s also a fun learning experience

    I gotten my first purchased of slime at retro and honestly, I feel so like I am a kid again. Slime is something I used to play with a lot so to relive is very nice. Also I just really like the retro vibes and the smells are quite pleasant. Will buy again.

      I’ve been really getting into slime lately and watching all kinds of reviews and videos, I am the type of person that researches anything to make sure I’m buying the best product. Retro slime not only makes their slimes like the food etc,, they’re going for but adds great stories to them. There is an amazing amount of diversity in what you can buy from slime texture, color, and even smell. They have something for everyone.

    I’ve bought from retro three times now I think. It’s been a while since I’ve ordered so I just put in a new one! They’re amazing and their slimes are of high quality

    Retro Slimes is a refreshing look on slime. Many slime companies recycle the same things and sell them for ridiculously high prices for only a small amount of slime. Not Retro Slimes though! The prices are reasonable and you truly get what you pay for.

        I like them because they remind me of Nickelodeon’s Gak slime, from the ’90s.

    90% Of my slimes are Retro. They smell great, have fun stories, and most importantly, they last a very long time. I love the scratch and sniff collection the best.

      I have bought from Retro only once, but I plan to again! The slimes have help up amazingly well compared to most shops I bought from. The scents and textures are pretty much on point, and I’ve only had very minor issues that are easy to fix. Buy from Retro! <3

    We have bought so many slimes from Retro Slime. They are fun quality slimes. Some of our slimes are two years old and we still play with them. They only require a little maintenance.

    I buy from RSC because I love love everything about them! The article is so spot on, their slimes remind me of childhood; and if not my childhood my parents’ childhood! I love seeing the look of nostalgia on my mom’s face when I show her some of the slimes I have purchased. Another reason I buy is the quality, from the packaging to the slimes themselves. Without even opening the package you can tell they really put effort into their work and each component is just as magical as the last. Again going off what’s in the article, their slimes last extremely long which is perfect for anyone looking for slimes that are durable. I am obsessed with RSC’s textures and I cannot recommend them enough!! <3
