A terrific series of PLAY-DOH sets each inspired by different fairy tales like TheThree Little Pigs, Hansel & Gretel and Little Red Riding Hood. Kids loved to be read the included story book, which provides terrific inspiration for their PLAY-DOH session.
WHAT THE KIDS SAY
Look at my little piggies. They are so cute. Can you read me the story again, Mom?
I didn't like the witch in the story but I liked making it out of play-doh! I made the gingerbread man and then my brother mushed it up!
I love making the wolf's tongue. It's funny because it goes very far. I wanted to build a house of logs and a house of straw but there's not enough playdoh for that so I just make a little bit. I have to push really hard to make the things. The wolf is my favourite, it's fun to make his tongue.
WHAT ADULTS THINK
This is a really cute little playdoh set complete with story. The kids enjoyed me reading the story to them before they started playing with the toys because it helped explain what we were supposed to be making out of playdoh. The wolf's tongue was the biggest hit because they could push playdoh through the mouth and make the wolf's tongue as long as they wanted to and they thought that was hilarious. They kept trying to outdo each other to see who could make the longest tongue. We found that when we made the 3 little pigs and the logs, there was a lot of playdoh on the sides that we had to trim off. Also, the kids needed a bit of help to push hard enough to make the straw. I like how the box folds open like a storybook, it's easy to keep everything together. A plastic knife trimmer would have been a nice inclusion. The pigs detail/shape is not the easiest to make out but the kids loved how they could make all 3 pigs in one shot. They played with this toy for quite a while, taking turns with the various instruments. I know I'll be asked to read the story every time the kids want to play with the playdoh. I think this would make a great birthday party gift.
I like the quality of this toy and would buy more in this particular series. It will appeal to children who enjoy listening to stories as well as enhance the listening experience as you can make your characters act out the story. I feel my daughter will enjoy playing with this toy for some time before she outgrows the appeal.
Definitely was some novelty to it when they first opened it but it quickly wore off.
Every so often, Ezra (M3) takes out his Play-Doh set and tries to re-create the pictures on the story page. It's great to have the visuals to show him what he is trying to make. We have trouble with the 'breadcrumbs' which don't come out of the roller, but he's figured out how to get all the other shapes to come out well and enjoys creating and re-creating!
