My kiddos were extremely excited to try the new Moon Dough Barnyard Playset that we received just before our vacation. Well, I pulled it out today and let them all go to town…
Not only is Moon Dough incredibly messy, but it was difficult for my youngest little guys – the targeted age for this set -to use the mold in just such a way to actually create the barn animals. Noah lost interest fairly quickly, but the twins came to the rescue and were able to create smooth and consistent cows, roosters and sheep for Ben.
Moon Dough looks and feels like wet sand before molded, however it resembles big, fluffy marshmallows when molded into fun shapes. All in all, I think my kiddos enjoyed making a huge mess, mixing the three colors that came with the set, and squishing the dough between their fingers.
I’m thinking that, although the dough is never supposed to dry out and it really is easy to clean up, we would need to purchase Moon Dough Refill Packs if the kiddos ever want to play with it again. I suppose it’d be fun to add a few more colors to the mix!
I received this playset to review as a member of Team Mom. No monetary compensation was received. As always, all opinions are mine.
