Play Doh is a great, familiar toy that entertains children of all ages. I remember playing with it all the time as a child, and I use it for my own as well. The birthday set is a bucket of toys and play doh colors-12 in all-2 included and a case of 10 came extra. M, y little one loves all of the fun shapes-you can make cakes, candies and other fun birthday stuff. I personally love the ease of taking it out and restoring it in the same container-it is an easy clean up project. The only thing I don't like is the lack of variety in the toys/shapes provided-it gets a bit repetitive in the variety. The plates/cards extra items to put the creations on are durable and hold up well to repeated abuse from little hands. Overall, a great play doh product.
