My granddaughter purchased this Moon Dough - Puppies Magical Molding Dough with her own money that she had saved. She is almost 6 years old and enjoys buying something that she picks out on her own. She had wanted this molding dough for a while. This Moon Dough is sold on the same aisle with the Crayola products and sells for $9.97. It is for children 3 years and older. This kit was even fun for me because I had never seen anything like it before. This dough never dries out. It is wheat-free and is hypoallergenic. The items included are an instruction sheet, one magic molding dough house which is reusable. There are some different molds, one bone mold, one steak mold, one dog bowl mold. It also has an orange bag and a purple bag of Moon Dough. You then place your moon dough in the dog house and turn the handle and out comes what you created. The instructions sheets tells you that for best results you would need to compress the Moon Dough into a ball before giving it to your child. I had my granddaughter do this since she was old enough. You will need a flat, clean, smooth surface like a table top or on the floor for the best results. We covered the kitchen table with a sheet of plastic to try to contain the dough for easy clean up. It worked great. When cleaning this up you can have your child pick the pieces of dough up a ball of dough. It was just so much fun.
The moon dough never dries out and can be used over again and again. If it gets in the carpet you won't need any water or cleaning solution of any kind. Just take a little bit of Moon Dough and dab up the large pieces. After you get the pieces up you can vacuum as usual. I thought this was just the coolest product. My grandaughter played with it over and over again. The little bowls and bones and even the dog that is made of the dough molds are just so cute. I loved this product and would recommend it for hours of play. It would be great for a rain day or cold weather when your child can't get outdoors to play. I thought it was a reasonable price to pay for it.
