12-Year-Old Connecticut Girl Goes for Guinness World Record
7th Grader, Madison Greenspan from Fairfield, has a good chance of getting into the Guinness Book of World Records for a great cause.
She has her own slime glue company, Maddie Rae’s Slime Glue, and has gotten approval from the Guinness people to attempt to break the record for the world’s largest slime, which would be her dream come true. It would take over six tons of slime to do this (more than 12,000 pounds in all). She and her company will publicly try for the record in front of an international audience at Play Fair NY, the largest toy trade show in the Americas according to the Play Fair website. Her giant batch of slime will be measured at the Javits Convention Center in New York City at 11 am, November 4th.
She’ll make 3,000 souvenir slime jars with the record-breaking slime (fingers crossed), giving out 1,000 to attendees and the other 2,000 will be sold online with all proceeds going to Hand in Hand, a hurricane relief charity that Madison picked. Join Maddie, cheer her on, and help the cause by seeing her at Play Fair in New York City.
