New Clean of Kong Soap & Contest!

Posted in Contests, Soapmaking , on January 24, 2011 , 46 Comments

After several long months, I’m finally able to share a new geeky soap… Clean of Kong: A Fistful of Bubbles! This Donkey Kong inspired soap has been on my mind since last fall when my dad sent me a link he thought would give me some new soap ideas. It was a list of classic games and how they’ve stood the test of time, and I saw Donkey Kong on the list. I was immediately transported back in time where I was a kid playing Donkey Kong on the Atari at my grandma’s house. The first thing that popped in my mind when I thought of DK and soap was… a barrel! Of course! Barrels are the hallmark of the Donkey Kong game series, and I could picture this beautiful soap in my mind.

Fast forward to the present, and I finally am unveiling the Donkey Kong inspired barrel soap in all its glory. I am really proud! It took me several mold attempts to get it just right, and I’m finally happy with how my vision turned out. When I was trying to decide which scent to use, the only thing that made sense (scents?) was banana. Those of you that know me know that I don’t exactly like bananas. In fact, I loathe  bananas. The taste, the consistency… everything. But considering how much a role bananas play in the Donkey Kong series, it seemed like the best choice, and nothing else seemed like a better fit. I went with a banana coconut fragrance oil, and the final result came together so well that I think you’re really going to love it.

  2. Sarah Nelson says:

    Tetris all the way! I was obsessed then and still am to this day. :)

  3. Tasha Lee says:

    I never had an Atari, but I got a Super Nintendo when I was 5 or 6. I remember long nights playing Super Mario Brothers 3 when school had been canceled for snow. So as far as that goes, I’ll say Super Mario Brothers. As for arcade games, the local pizza place had Galaga and Mortal Kombat.

  4. Alyssa K. says:

    I loved zelda!

  5. Tara Edwards says:

    Favorite is a tie.. I loved Pacman but it was the only game my brother’s would let me play on the Atari. Once I got my hands on Nintendo, I was a Mario Bros. gal… I still love playing the original and along with Mario Bros., Donkey Kong of course!

  6. Missy says:

    Mine was either Super Mario Bros or Duke Nukem….probably going to go more with the Duke than anything. Loved me them strippers. ;)

  7. brandi gonzales says:

    My favorite classic were the Cetipede Millipede games I used to play on my uncles old handheld GameBoy, you know, the one with the green screen.

  8. Lisa M says:

    EARTHBOUND!!! it’s the best video game ever! :)

  9. Emma says:

    It wasn’t until I was in college that I was actually into playing video games (I grew up in a Videogame-free home). My roommate had an N64 and we played Goldeneye together. He was WAY better at it then I would would kill me repeatedly. I finally got in a kill shot & from then on, he wouldn’t let me live more then a few seconds after each respawn *sigh*
    Now I play Battlefront with the hubby ;)

  10. Metal Jared says:

    I loved Phantasy Star for Sega Master System, I played that game forever.

  12. Jen says:

    favorite was pac man. donkey kong is a close second though.

  13. Markus says:

    Favorite classic game has to be Super Mario Bros :)

    I used to play a lot of zaxxon and time pilot during my mall rat arcade days. dragon’s lair also swallowed a lot of quarters.

    On my Apple ][e, I played a lot of Infocom games (Zork I/II/III, etc), Ultima I-IV and Wizardry

    I love so many video games, but the three best ones are definitely the legend of zelda (a lik to the past or ocarina of time), super mario world and donkey kong country. last one was an epic game series. I love the new one on wii <3

  22. Kellie says:

    My favorite that I still play to this day is the original Mario for SNES. Second to that was Metroid, though The Legend of Zelda the Ocarina of Time for N64 might beat out Metroid.

  29. Megan says:

    I’m going to have to go with pacman. I remember when my family would go to HOG meetings, I would bring quarters and play the old arcade version of pacman there. I never made it overly far, but I was pretty good for a 5 year old. When I finally got a SEGA, Pacman was one of the first games I bought.

  30. Kelly P. says:

    Space Invaders! That was the best!

  31. Amanda says:

    I’m going to be a dirty Canadian! :o

    Super Mario/Duck Hunt combo that came with my NES.

  32. Corina T says:

    my favorite classic game was skies of arcadia. That game was my first true RPG that got me hooked on RPGs instead of platform games

  33. ReganJ says:

    I adore Frogger…the first one…the one that was just green and the black screen on your computer screen…very old school…I think it was the first video game I ever played as a child…love, love that game!! I adore your work also. Still going to order more soap from you!
