Fairfield ‘slimer’ breaks world record
FAIRFIELD — Madison Greenspan now holds a world record.
On Saturday, the 12-year-old Fairfield resident and Unquowa School student Madison Greenspan, together with a team of roughly 100 volunteers, broke the Guinness World Record for most slime ever made at one time, at 13,820 pounds.
“I’m so excited that we actually broke the world record for the largest slime,” Madison said. “I want to send a big thank you to my team members and to all the people that supported me.”
The attempt took place at the annual Jacob Javits Convention Center Play Fair on Nov. 4 and broke the 11,024-pound record that had stood previously, according to Denise Hawkins, who handles Madison’s public relations.
In 2016, Madison began making her own glue, called Maddie Rae’s Slime Glue, with which the gooey substance could be made. She shares recipes and suggested add-ins with visitors to her website and those who follow her on Instagram, where she posted results from her world record attempt at the handle @slimebymaddierae.
