Crayola and others have malleable foam products. And my son did this often enough using bits of toys and legos.

And you can get slime-dough in a plastic tiny trashcan with shiny eyeballs embedded in it.

A customisable build-your-own-Alien-alien kit's an excellent idea. I don't know if playdo's the right medium, though, because it doesn't let you do long necks and other protruding phallic bits too easily (they tend to fall off). Perhaps something involving latex, which you can buy from a theatrical supplies shop for doing masks and stuff, but then you'd need a framework and padding. That's why Meccano and Lego are best for square industrial-type shapes. Maybe a latex shell you can fill with foam padding to stretch and form it, and some of that slime stuff you get in cans to cover it all with (or KY jelly). Or perhaps a grow-your-own-alien kit would be better.

The silly putty people have really been hurt by the advent of better newspaper comic ink, which now does not smear on the Silly Putty as did the ink of yore. Their stuff is just about right for this idea. I envision an egg carton of putty eggs in colors like cracker flesh, scarlet, maroon, glossy indigo, black, bile, mustard and so on.

Does it come with a gift certifcate for future therapy sessions needed by children exposed to Giger's art at a young age?

I was hoping for playdoh that had a nice faint green glow...
