Moon Dough by Spin Master

I admit, I am THAT mom who tries to make sure her kid never eats a crayon, sand, leaves, paper, or just about anything else he could possibly get his hands onto.  So Mason is 20 months and I have to loosen the reigns.  Now is the time for coloring and drawing and yes, eating crayons.  I understand how important it is for development of fine motor skills, but still.  I imagine this opens the door to other creative play like finger paints and clay.  Oh, the fun (and clean-up) that awaits!

As a child I played with Play-Doh .  I really can't think of anyone who hasn't really.  Play-Doh was a staple in my house, along with the play sets and refill containers just ready and waiting to be mixed with the other colors.  Here is a a nice alternative to Play-Doh if you are looking for a change of pace or just something different this holiday season.  It is called Moon Dough.  Have you checked this out yet?  It is from the makers of Moon Sand, is like Play-Doh, but claims to never dry out.  I got my hands on a sample of Moon Dough to check it out.  The dough is light and soft, kind of  feels like a marshmallow.  It is very easy to shape and mold into whatever you want.

For the parents out there who have children with skin sensitivities or allergies, know that your child can play with Moon Dough since it is is also hypo-allergenic and wheat-free.  That is a hugh plus in my book!

Clean-up was pretty easy.  I just took a larger piece of the dough and used that to collect the smaller pieces.  It washes off your hands easily if need be.

There are also some play sets available - Moon Dough DinerMoon Dough Puppies, Moon Dough Magic Barnyard.  The play sets retail from about $9.99 to $19.99.  You can also buy Moon Dough Refill Packs and retail for about $4.99.
