Too Cool! Frogs That Go Fizz in the Tub

Now this takes bath bomb fizzies to the next level. How cute is this? Found these on Etsy at Howard's Home Shop. It's a melt and pour glycerin frog soap with a bath fizzy inside. When warm water reaches the middle, pink guts ooze out from the froggie. My grandkids would go nuts over these soaps. Hmmmm.... maybe this is a project for the Spring "Girls Night Out" (GNO) soap night.

I'm guessing some kind of silicone mold was used for the frog and that a miniature bath bomb ball was tucked inside (between soap pours). I can envision how it might have been done, but I'm not so sure how you keep the bath bomb from fizzing when soap is poured over it. If you've ever made a bath bomb, you know, it doesn't take much to set off the fizzing process. Once it starts, the bath bomb takes on a mind of its own! I'll have to try pouring soap over our bath bomb mixture to see what happens.

What do you think? How does Howard's Home make these little guys?

Really enjoyed your description of the frog bomb. I hate frogs and I bought some after reading your blog to send to my cousins that use to torment me when I was a kid. Even though we are all grown I think they will get a kick out of it and what a cool valentine gift to send. Thanks and great reading about soap making.
