Moon Dough Ocean Pals contains a new formula of dough which falls apart less easily than in the past. Previously, I named my last review of moon dough Messy Playtime because it was quite messy! This time around, the dough held together better.
Moon Dough Ocean Pals includes 3 Push ‘n’ Pop tools, 1 mold and 2 colors of Moon Dough. You can make whales, turtles, octopuses and coral reefs. We got the colors purple and green, which were very pretty to start out with, but once mixed together became a dull gray. It’s hard to keep the colors separate when playing.
But colors aside the children had lots of fun making their underwater creations. Made for ages 3 and up, Moon Dough allows children to be creative, use their imagination and work with their fine motor skills. Moon Dough is odorless and never dries out. We did notice that the color transferred to the children’s hands, but was easily washed away with soap and water. Again, the children (and adults) loved the feel of the dough. This time it was described as a marshmallow once it was shaped or made into a ball.
There still was clean up to be done, as tiny pieces were found after play time. Part of it was our fault, as we did not play on a hard surface and the very young children stepped in the dough and dragged it through the house. Next time, we’ll play with Moon Dough Ocean Pals on a table top!
I was provided with the Moon Dough Set by Team Mom. All opinions are my own and my friend and her children.
