A Slime inflates!

Even though you kill them by the truckload in Dragon Quest games, when we see a product in the image of the winsome Slime, our thoughts are far from violent. The Hershey's Kiss shape and blank smile inspire a feeling of euphoria. We love the little guys.

NCSX is accepting preorders for an inflatable blue Slime, to ship out in June. The Smile Slime, which "stands" about a foot tall, would make an absolutely terrible beach ball. For some reason, though, we think the transparency of this plastic Slime makes it more "authentic" and appealing than a plush option. The $13.90 price isn't bad, either.
