{ Moon Dough Review }

My children loved to play with play dough....but as a mother it literally gave me chills up the spine the minute that nasty stuff used to come out.  Eventually I knew that it would everywhere and by everywhere, I mean EVERY.WHERE.


As they got older I started diverting their attention from that stuff to other things figuring that at least I wouldn't have to worry about the clean up.

Then Moon Dough came out and Nicholas practically begged me for some to try, I put it off as long as I could but then caved, you know....the whole puppy eyes look and pouty lip kinda thing.

I bought it for him and he loved it and I was surprised that the clean up was much easier than play dough.

A few weeks ago I was contacted by the wonderful folks over at Child's Play Communications and asked if I would be willing to try out the new and improved Moon Dough.  Here is what they said:

This odor-free dough now features a better consistency for even more molding fun! We would love for you to check out the new and improved Moon Dough (ages 3 and up) by reviewing the Moon Dough Push N’ Pop – which comes in an Ocean Pals set or Breakfast set.


Let me tell you, this stuff is the best.  I only wish it had been around when Jasmine was a little one too.

It has no scent, it feels like sand but doesn't fall apart, it doesn't make a mess and I think for me the biggest thing was that it's SO light.  I went to pick up a big chunk of it and thought it would be heavy like play dough, but it was extremely light.

Nicholas had a BLAST with it and and even Jasmine who is 12 got in on the fun too....truth be told so did hubby and I LOL


It comes with cool shapes to make different animals.  The set we got was the Ocean one, so the kids enjoyed making an Octopus and Turtle....


He was in heaven for an hour or two and the best part.....when it was time to clean up, I didn't find a gazillion little crumbs and balls of dough stuck to my floor, table etc.


On and one of the best things about it too, it doesn't dry up.  That's right....you can leave it out of the box or bag and it won't dry up.  Though I suggest keeping it in a ziploc baggie like I do just to keep it all together.

If you're thinking of a cool gift for little ones 3+ in age, that will provide them with hours of fun, you might want to consider the Moon Dough.

Thank you to Child's Play Communication for the box set provided for review.

I love the photo in your header, Sandra.

I used to have the same reaction as you did when my kids wanted to play with play dough. This looks much better. My 14-yr-old still likes play dough. . . maybe I could get her this for Crhistmas! I miss buying toys for my kids:(

My 4 year old loves Moon Dough. We have the original so we'll have to give the new stuff a try too.
