Remember that wierd gray gooey stuff that you'd roll into a ball and place on the end of a straw, and blow into a bubble? And you could pull it from the straw and seal the hole and wallah, you'd have a wierd icky ball of air? What's it called?

Super elastic bubble plastic was the swirly colored version. I believe they found it to be toxic and took it off the market.

yeah... From wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super_Elastic_Bubble_Plastic)
Super Elastic Bubble Plastic was the Wham-O brand name for a 1960s, 1970s and 1980s children's toy consisting of a tube of a viscous plastic substance and a thin straw used to blow semi-solid bubbles. A pea-sized amount of liquid plastic was squirted from the tube and made into a tiny ball. One end of the straw was then inserted into the ball, and the user would blow into the other end, inflating the plastic into a bubble.
