++ My Experience ++
For during the colder and wetter months I stocked up on indoor activities for my daughter to do on rainy days. Along with puzzles and craft things I purchased Play Doh online at amazon for £3.97 with free delivery which I thought was a good price as for free delivery too. The four colours that we got were dark pink, high light pink, turquoise and purple. My daughter loves pink so she was over the moon with the colours. The colours are bright and the tubs are sturdy so if they are dropped on the floor they don't crack so having little hands grabbing at them that's a bonus as things always seem to hit the floor. The first use I opened just one of the tubs for her in order to not have all the colours mixed together by the end of play time and I was surprised how much play doh there was with just using the one tub. She was able to make a few different mini animals with the one tub and there was some left for me to make her a horse. It was moist and soft which for me showed the quality as some play dough as soon as you open it you can feel it flaking and that its dry. The smell of the play doh was a bit strong at first however it soon faded down it was a sweet smell as weird as that sounds that along with the texture is probably why children try to eat it! We have been using this product for the last few months and I have found its still work able for her and I feel due to the tubs lids being really sturdy and kept closed after play it hasn't dried out. The tubs stack so they are easy to store together which is good if you only have a little craft cupboard like me. And the lids are really tightly on which makes it a real challenge for a child to get off along with keeping the product moist.
++ About the Product++
Play Doh can be brought from children's shops or craft stores and online which makes it a great product to get as you can get your child a lot of different colours of high quality play doh. The price can vary but starts at around £3.
There are 4 520g of play doh in the packaging and they come in a range of colours so if you want 4 specific colours you would have to search around until you come across the combination you are after. The colour of the play dough is the colour of the tubs lid and then it has a yellow container below with Play Doh written in white on a red background.
The 4 tubs of play doh are encased in a brightly coloured cardboard layer that has all the product information on it and then it has a plastic film on it to keep it all together. The cardboard has examples of what you can make with your child like a cup cake or a car.
The product should be used by children that are 2yrs old and above and should have child supervision when it is being used. On the back of the tubs it states that the product contains Wheat and that the product is a modelling compound and not intended to be eaten. And that colours and contents may vary from those shown. And that you should retain the packaging for future reference.
To clean the product up you have to remove the excess Play doh and let the rest dry allowing you to then scrape the rest away.
All the company information is written on the base on the cardboard packaging the address for the Consumer services is:
Hasbro UK Ltd, PO Box 43, Newport, NP19 4YD
++ Is Play Doh worth recommending? ++
In my opinion its so worthy of a recommendation, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this product to someone if they were looking for a good indoor activity to do with their child as it is well priced for what you receive and lasts a long time if the lid is kept on. A great product for a great price what more could any one with a play dough fan want!
Summary: High quality well priced Play Doh available in stores or online in variety of colours
