“ Brand: Hasbro / Type: Clay / Age: 3 Years+ „
My son loves anything messy and crafty , he was given a bucket of playdoh for his 2nd birthday and could not wait to use it.
The bucket is a bright sunshine yellow and comes with a red lid , I like this bucket as it is impossible for my son to open the lid.
Inside the bucket you will find 5 x 53g tubs of playdoh in the colours of red,blue,orange,yellow and green. You will also find a rolling pin with 4 cutting discs , and different shaped cutters like a christmas tree, duck, rabbit and star.
I really recommend that if you are going to use playdoh in the living room that has a carpet to put a plastic sheet or maybe some newspaper on the floor as this stuff gets everywhere and is a nightmare to get out of a carpet. I usually sit my son at his little table and he always wears an apron when he is being creative.
The first thing that hits you when you open the tubs is the smell! I really hate the smell of this stuff but after a while I seem to forget about it.
The playdoh is soft and squiggy and is easy for little hands to play with , they can roll out the doh and then use the cutters to make different things.
Playdoh isn`t just a craft it also helps children to learn their colours , shapes and to count , my son likes to match up the colour tub with the same colour cutter. He also likes to place all his craft work onto a paper plate and will tell a story using the different shapes , so he is learning and having fun at the same time.
Playdoh is a great way of interacting with your child , we have hours of fun making things. The tubs of doh have lasted 5 months and are still very soft , I think that as long as they are kept in the tubs after use they will not dry out.
Recommended age for this is 3+ I think because little people have a habit of wanting to eat it!
This bucket of playdoh costs £9.99 and you can find it in toys r us or in some supermarkets.
My youngest son got some play doh for his birthday last week and although he thoroughly enjoys playing with it for long periods of time i just don't like the mess it leaves.
It's bright coloured cutter shapes, rollers, moulds and brightly coloured pots of red, yellow, blue green, orange and purple playdoh are fantastic for him to get his hands stuck into but it's just the bits that are left all over the table and floors afterwards. I always make him sit at the table to play this as we have a tiled floor in the dining room and just assume it's easy to clean up but it still manages to get trodden into our living room carpet all the way from the dining room. If it's not noticed straight away then once these tiny pieces dry up over time then that's a problem to remove from the carpet.
I must admit i loved playing with this when i was young and still do love it sometimes but it is an impossiblity to keep all the colours seperated. Since my son got this all the colours have totally been mixed together as he thought it would be a great idea to empty all the pots straight away to get one massive clump of playdoh altogether.
It's a good way of getting their imagination going when playing with this and all the shapes that they can cut out. I have found that i can encourage him to recognise his shapes and colours whilst having fun at the same time.
If you want something for your children to get their hands stuck into and you don't mind the mess afterwards then this is well worth getting. I always resisted buying this for my oldest children because of the thought of playdoh getting everywhere but now my little lad has it there's no way i can take it away from him now.
