Review: Plasticine Softeez

Plasticine Softeez


I loved plasticine when I was little. When a new pack was opened at school it was a big deal and we would all fight over it and play with it, making all sorts of brilliant designs until it dried out and had to go in the bin. Then we would beg the teacher to get out a new pack!

Plasticine Softeez is just like normal plasticine, except that it never dries out – so you can have even more fun with it! We were sent a Plasticine Softeez Tub of Fun as well as a Cupcake Creations kit and some slabs of Plasticne Softeez in various different colours.

My sister demanded that we wait for a day when she was able to come and play with us before opening the pack – she has fond memories of Plasticine at school too, it seems! They both passed a fun afternoon making some rather spectacular creations.

Once they had made some cupcakes, they set about having fun with making other things.

S had so much fun playing with her Plasticine; she made lots of snakes and crazy decorations for her cupcakes.

My sister made a family of hands. Then the hand family had a bit of a family argument and, well… we all know how that ends with Plasticine.

We had a brilliant afternoon playing with Plasticine Softeez, but the real test with a new toy comes when it’s time to put it away: will they let you put it away? Will they beg to have it out again? Well, S was none too pleased at the demise of the hand family and I only managed to persuade her to put the cupcakes away with the promise of a real cupcake from the shop! Since then she’s played with her Plasticine Softeez lots and keeps asking to get it out before nursery in the mornings. I think it can be safely considered a hit!

    This looks fab! I loved plasticine as a kid and non-drying-out stuff sounds even better. Need to find out if it's Monkey-friendly. She can't have play doh because of her allergies so hoping this would work Janet Yarwood recently posted...Hospital Update (Allergy Alphabet day 13)My Profile
