My home made play doh can be flavoured, baked and doubles up as the kids afternoon snack. That is after they have turned it into whatever their imagination lets them!! The only downfall is the 24 hour lifespan. Left overs have to be thrown in the garbage!!

Creativity in an easy to clean up medium like playdoh is appreciated not only by my kids but very much by myself!

Play Doh lets me have 5 mins to have a shower by myself! It's the only thing that keeps DS interested more than 5mins.

After buying PlayDoh for visiting grandchildren, Miss 4 loudly states: "PlayDoh is much better than the Doh you make Nana"

It is something that can be shared easily so there is no arguing and it makes no noise so peace and quiet for Mummy!

As well as encouraging creative play, its a quiet activity my 2 year old and I can do together while my new baby is sleeping!

My 5 year old says it is because we can make things with it. She especially loves making pretend food with PlayDoh.

PlayDoh gives the kids creative time, without worry. They are only limited by their imagination as to what the invent.

Play Doh is one of the few activities that my boys play together without having 'sharing' issues because there is always enough for them both.

From learning their shapes, to feeling different textures, to using cutters and rollers, PlayDoh is the one thing that is fun and educational for the toddlers right up to the adults.
