A specific set called “Floam in Flight” was used to make objects fly by inserting a tube into the Floam creation then putting it on an air-tube launcher to make it fly. Although production was discontinued on this product for a number of years it was re-released to the public in 2012 by NSI International.

In 1995 a Floam factory was created as a fun attraction that allows you to make unique shapes and patterns all from Floam. The factory itself includes a Floam bed to lay on, different pockets, shape sizes to use morph Floam into, and a hand roller for patterns.
