Fun and long lasting, limited shaping
on October 27, 2011
My 3 year old has LOVED playing with this playfoam and I seem to find the ball of the mushed together foam in his room just about every morning him having grabbed it to play with in bed! Since the playfoam doesn't dry out I don't have to worry or stress about it being left out of the package! Plus, it has really good about very little mess! Occasionally a few of the tiny foam balls will be separated "from the pack" and get lost but it hasn't been a big deal so far. While it's been a lot of fun for my boys to play with, I do think it's hard to make many things that really represent a real life object. For example, the most creative I really got was a snowman and a hot dog - very simple shapes. It is hard to create really defined lines with the foam so the designs to stay pretty simple. This is really a non-issue for younger children though as they wouldn't be attempting complex designs.
Disclosure: I received 2 4-packs of Playfoam for free to review on my website A Mom's Take. Opinions are my own.
