What It Is
The Play-Doh Plus 8-Pack comes with eight cans of Play-Doh. Little hands can make more detailed swirls, stars, and other imaginative additions with this softer, smoother compound. The softer texture is ideal for adding dollops of frosting or detailed decorations on Play-Doh cakes, cookies, and cupcakes or to add ruffles and ribbons onto a Play-Doh dress. It also is less likely to break up when extruded or modeled with, making it more satisfying to work with for smaller, more detailed creations
Why It’s Fun
The softer texture is really neat to feel and play with, and with the right tools, the Play-Doh Plus really does look like frosting.
Who It’s For
The Play-Doh Plus 8-Pack is for ages 2 and up.
What To Be Aware Of
This pack of Play-Doh Plus doesn't come with any tools, so kids won't be able to make the Play-Doh Plus into the detailed creations they see on the packaging unless they add it to other Play-Doh playsets and tools
Play-Doh Plus contains wheat.
Some Play-Doh playsets, such as Sweet Shoppe Flip 'n Frost Cookies and Frosting Fun Bakery, are being sold with cans of Play-Doh Plus. This eight-pack makes a great addition to those playsets.
Our Special Needs contributor Emily Vanek shares her thoughts on how this product might be a good choice for a Special Needs child.
Many kids with sensory issues have tactile defensiveness. Play-Doh is a great tool to help kids get over their sensory and tactile issues through repetitive play. Have the kids use pencils or dowels to poke at the dough and move up to touching with fingers and hands. Pretty soon they will want to explore other new textures. Please Note: Play-Doh does contain wheat; if you are 100% gluten free you may want to search for a wheat-free option
