About a year ago I got the opportunity to review Moon Sand a while back and wasn’t a big fan at all.  I thought I loved it…until I started finding purple particles everywhere and then I decided it was too much like sand…sticky, messy and not something you want your kids to play with inside your home.  It wasn’t the most mom-friendly piece of creative play, so I banned it from the house and moved back to allowing playdough when the girls wanted to use their artistic creative juices and hands.

Then a year ago, I got the offer to try Moon Dough and was a little squeamish, but decided I needed to give it a chance and see what it was all about.  Then again I was offered to try Moon Dough and was told that they changed the formula and it was better for molding.  My curiosity peaked. Since the original Moon Sand was like sand, then the Moon Dough must be like dough, right?  Right! And an improved formula? Sweet!

The only way I can describe Moon Dough is that it is like a light, foam, dough.  You can mold it, shape it, roll it and squish it.  It can be broken up into pieces and then squished back together.  It is  less messy than the original Moon Dough and a whole lot of fun!

My girls got to try the Moon Dough Push N’ Pop Ocean Pals.  I have a 2 year old, 5 year old and 7 year old and they enjoyed using the Push N’ Pop molds that came with the set.  I loved the consistency of the dough, that it is odorless and never dries out.  Playdough frustrates me because it seems to dry out so fast.  I’m always throwing it out and buying more.

The price is great too!  The sets are $9.99 which is a great price for a birthday gift, a treat for good grades or any special occasion!

I was sent the Moon Dough to try and really liked it!  All opinions are my own and not influenced by anyone or anything.
