Moon Dough Is Not Just For Eating
Of course I'm not advocating eating the stuff. It's as digestible as Georgia clay (which I've eaten... I was raised there-sue me. It tastes just like you would think-like dirt). And Play Doh eventually dries into crusty lumps of colored brick.
Don't get me wrong. I loved Play Doh as a kid-and still think it's one of the best toys around. But when it dries up... well, that's kind of like breaking the arms and legs off of a GI Joe. I could be wrong, but I don't think there's a tiny wheelchair to make that action figure playable again...
Enter Moon Dough, a hypoallergenic wheat-free blob of "clay" that never dries up.
The beauty of this stuff is that kids can sculpt something (let's say a puppy... even though it looks more like some crazy amorphous alien critter), then mash it all up to make something new-pretty much forever. Apparently kids playing with this stuff could grow up, get married, have kids, and give Moon Dough to their grandchildren-and it would still be squishy.
It comes in eight different colors-Blue, Green, Orange, Pink, Purple, Red, White, and Yellow.
What disturbs me a little is that Moon Dough comes in kits that emulate food. And as kids are... experimental in what they put in their mouths, this makes me wonder how many pounds of Moon Dough will be consumed in those few "wonder years" of youth.
Regardless of the culinary quality of this product, the point is that it doesn't dry out. And that means more play time for the kiddies. This video shows off the dough-tastic doughyness of Moon Dough:
All hail the creativity of the kid who simply stacked blocks of Moon Dough into a big tower. Jeez.
He'll be the kid eating the stuff.
If you have a kid with a lot of creativity, get some Moon Dough at Amazon! There is an amazing variety of Moon Dough toys to check out.
