My daughter has always loved play dough. She could play with it for hours. So when I got the opportunity to get another product like play dough I knew I had to get some for her. It is called Playfoam and is like Play dough in a lot of ways but it is a lot less messy! *I got the product listed below in exchange for my honest opinion.
I know what you are thinking, because it was what I was thinking when I saw this. You are probably very skeptical and not believing that this could be true. Well I took the plunge and braved the, what I thought to be, unenviable disaster to follow. To my happy surprise there was no mess! Well if you don’t count my youngest throwing it all over the floor. What I mean by no mess is that we didn’t have to wipe down anything and there was no Playfoam that got ground into anything, which often happens with clay or play dough.
It is even safe on carpet.
I would not recommend encouraging your kids to play with it on the carpet but if it happens to get in the carpet it is easy to pull out because it doesn’t stick. It is really cool how when you are playing with it it feels sticky but your fingers never get sticky. That is great for clean up because hands don’t have to be washed. It also never dries out so if it happens to get left out it won’t get ruined like play dough would.
With Playfoam the fun never ends!
There is so much you can do with Playfoam. You can squish it, my personal favorite thing to do because it is like a stress ball! You can mold it into shapes, like my daughter’s person in the picture above on the left. The colors can even be mixed without them turning a gross brown color.
Since my son is younger we used the Playfoam to teach him his colors. My daughter used the Playfoam mostly to build. We even pulled out the cookie cutters today to help with her shape building.
Playfoam is our new favorite way to play in our home and what makes it even better is it only costs about $9 on Amazon. We know we will be getting some more to add to our fun!! What would your kids do with Playfoam? Let us know in the comments if this is something your kids would have fun with and if you have any questions about this great product.
