Moon Dough…the New Play Doh!

My kids have been BEGGING me to get Moon Dough since they saw the infomercial about it.  And let me tell you, my kids are hilarious after seeing an infomercial.  They remember all the tag lines and selling points and then come at me hard trying to convince me to buy whatever it is they think they “have to have” at that moment.

So imagine their surprise when we opened a box and in it was Moon Dough!  They were jumping up and down; screaming and yelling; you would have thought they just won a million dollars.  Nope.  Just Moon Dough!

I have to say, this stuff is pretty neat.  When I first opened the packages of dough I didn’t think it was going to do what it says it does.  It felt like sand and I truly did not think it would form into something and stay into that form.  But it does.  And my kids played for 2 hours straight with this stuff.

Now I have to admit.  I’m a Play Doh girl.  I like the way it feels.  I like the smell of it.  I like everything about it basically.  But I HATE how it dries out.  I hate how if it gets on your carpet you basically have to let it dry out and then scrub with a brush to get it up.  But Moon Dough is not like that.  It NEVER dries out.  And this is one time I can truly say never.  I left it in a pile on my kitchen table for 12 hours to test it and believe it or not, it didn’t dry out at all.  My kids were able to pick right back up where they left off.  Another thing I like is that it is hypo-allergenic and wheat free!

I won’t lie to you.  It makes a mess.  But honestly, no more of a mess than regular Play Doh makes.  Would I buy it?  Probably not.  But I don’t buy Play Doh either.  I let my kids play with that stuff at school and we do other things here…while I think Moon Dough is cool and would totally recommend it for schools, I personally don’t want the mess.

Thanks to Team Mom and Moon Dough for supplying me with the awesome farm theme package for this review.  All opinions are mine.
