DOZENS of children got the chance to be drenched in slime yesterday.

Intu Braehead shopping centre teamed up with kids TV network Nickelodeon yesterday for a Slime Time event.

Hundreds of shoppers turned up to see the ‘slime-ulator.’

The free event also gave children the chance to doodle on a giant slime colouring wall, capture and share photos in a slime photo booth and customise their own slime.

Christine Macdonald, marketing manager at intu Braehead, said: “It was brilliant to see so many smiling faces in amongst all the slime at our fun, free and very messy experience.”

Orla Livingston, aged nine, from Renfrew was one of the first children to be slimed. She said: “I was really excited waiting for the slime to drop on my head.

“I wasn’t expecting it to happen so quickly, but when it did drop it was really cold. It was great fun and I’d love to be able to do it again.”
