Moosh it, squish it, mold it, love it! Playfoam is a sculpting medium with an advantage: it doesn't dry out. It's made of tiny foam beads in vibrant colors - they stick together but they don't stick to you, or your clothes, or your couch, or your carpet, and Playfoam has a unique and delightful texture that reviewers compare to rice krispy treats.
The Playfoam Combo 8 Pack from Educational Insights gives you plenty of Playfoam to work with: it contains 8 softball-sized balls of foam in cool pastel colors with amusing names:
Oh yeah orange
Pat it down purple
Ya ya yellow
Ooh la la orange
Playfoam is non-toxic, and it's a great creative activity for kids ages 3 and up.
WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD - Small parts. Not for children under 3 years.
Doesn't dry out, Colorful, Fun
I bought this to entertain my 2 and 4 year olds on the airplane and it did a wonderful job. My 2 year old in particular was mesmerized for more than an hour and continued to play with it daily throughout our week vacation- and then again on the way home. We loved that it didn't dry out and it became more fun looking when you mixed the colors- unlike traditional play dough. However, it does pick up every dog hair and piece of lint that it touches. We've had to throw some out because it got so dirty. I still think the pros outweigh the cons when compared to play dough.
