I remember when I was 5 or 6 years old, one of my favorite toys to play with was PLAY-DOH compound. I would spend hours mixing PLAY-DOH colors and forming shapes, figures and even structures, and letting my imagination run wild.
PLAY-DOH Town Collections
Now that my daughter, Elle, is almost 6 years old, she loves playing with PLAY-DOH toys just as much as I do! I recently discovered that there is a new line of PLAY-DOH Town collections that cultivates hours of creative play for kids!
Once we unwrapped the PLAY-DOH town collections, I was impressed with the variety of molds that each set had.
The first PLAY-DOH town collection we opened was the PLAY-DOH Town Ice Cream Truck Playset. Elle delighted in making toy ice cream cones, and labeled each color a flavor. She used the built in molds to add play candy to her cones, and even made a PLAY-DOH toy mold of a popsicle.
The first day we opened it, she spent 3 hours on this PLAY-DOH town collection alone. She even grabbed an empty box, and created an ice cream cone stand, and asked me to place an order!
The second PLAY-DOH town collection we opened was the Firehouse Playset. Elle was able to put the whole firehouse together by herself (with my supervision), in just a few minutes! This playset features a puppy, fireman, water hose, fire hydrant, and, of course, a firehouse.
The firehouse stands tall, and the front door opens to reveal molds to create more creative play. Elle’s favorite part was being able to push PLAY-DOH compound down through the roof, to create a pole for the firefighters!
The third PLAY-DOH town collection we opened was the Pet Store Playset. Elle delighted in creating molds of multi-colored birds, kittens and other animals. She easily spent 2 hours playing with this one afternoon, and talked about how she wants to open a pet store when she gets older.
We have had our PLAY-DOH town collections for about a week now, and they have already provided hours of creative play and bonding time for my daughter and me.
PLAY-DOH is celebrating their 60th birthday this year with these exciting and new colorful town collections that give children a way to create adventures! On September 16th, the world will be celebrating World PLAY-DOH day, where children everywhere can mold, squish and explore endless sculpting possibilities!
