Standing the test of time
Member Name: Lyndzi76
Advantages: Great indoor activity on rainy days
Disadvantages: Can create some washing
The rainy weather descended and I had a 20 month old itching to be entertained. I ventured down to the local toy shop and brought a pack of play-doh. The pack contains 4 separate pots of play-doh - blue, red, yellow and white. A variety of colours are available. At our local Smyth's store I paid £3.99 which seems to be the going rate at most retailers.
I was concerned my son's first reaction was to eat the play doh so I first checked out the ingredients and with the ingredients being water, salt and flour I was satisfied even if he did not much damaged could be done.
The age suggestion for Play-Doh is 2 years + which was near enough for me to be happy to purchase for my little boy.
I brought just the tubs of Play-Doh but was tempted to also buy from the array of accessories Hasbro offer.
Although on the Play-Doh tub it states it does not stain however I always cover my table up as small bits often break off and go into the table grain.
Charlie very much enjoys playing with the Play-Doh. His favourite activity is squeezing it in his hand or rolling it on the table to make a snake!! I can never resist having a go when it's out I find it a great stress reliever as well.
If you have all the colours out at the same time with a young child be prepared the colours will get mixed together and spoilt.
Play-Doh really has stood the test of time as I remember playing with it over 25 years ago!! It's a simple past time for little money.
Summary: Great craft toy
