5.0 out of 5 stars Little tubs of fun, January 11, 2008

This review is from: Play-Doh: Case of Colors (Toy)
When I visited my granddaughters in Australia last year for their birthdays, I made room in my suitcase for this Play-Doh Case of Colors. I intended it for party favors, but one rainy afternoon when Mom was working and my son was busy in the kitchen I decided to get it out for the girls.

At four and six years old, they're Play-Doh veterans and have a crate of little accessories to help with the fun. They were soon deep in the creative process, chatting all the while.

Drawing and modeling are windows into a child's imagination. I was delighted with their spotted dogs, bright birds, little families in wearable-art clothing, and many items that truly defied categorizing. Their stories and conversation were even more charming. The little two-ounce tubs encouraged sharing and planning. What a happy memory for me!

At the end of the afternoon the Play-Doh was sorted by color and packed back into the tubs, to be used again but never in its pristine state. There's something about brand-new Play-Doh, isn't there?

It may have seemed silly to haul Play-Doh halfway around the world to a household that's the world capital of children's art supplies, but I'm glad I did -- and my granddaughters were glad too. I'm a true fan of the Play-Doh Case of Colors.

I love your title, Linda! It brought my artistic side to life; I have vivid fantasies of jumping in my bathtub and lining it with Play-Doh flowers ... fully clothed, of course. Perhaps I could get Mikki to take photos, then write a blog and post it all over the Net! :)

Seriously, this is a fun, entertaining review, and I bet the grandkids had a blast playing with Nana.

Keep your pen hot!

Now there's a use for Play-Doh that I never thought of before -- but you can bet that I'm thinking of it now! Contest, maybe? instead of a garden contest, we could have a bathtub decorating contest.

Thanks for the kind words!

Linda ~

One of my very oldest of memories was of a little kid on my block eating Play-Doh (and I was no copycat about this type of activity!) But all the kids on my block would bring all of their Play-Doh to a central play area and it we would combine all of that goop together to create horrible monsters with this weird substance.
Such are memories!

Eating Play-Doh? Well if only it tasted as good as it smelled! Glad you gave it a miss.
