Comments about Playfoam® Classic 4-Pack:
My kids wanted to play with it, but it leaves a sticky residue on everything it touches...almost greasy. and the little balls of foam end up all over and this has glitter mixed in it as well...so you can imagine the weeks you'll be finding glitter in strange places for weeks. My daughter(5) was having fun playing with it, but my son(almost 2) was taste testing it. OK IN THE GARBAGE. Do not buy this...stick with lincoln logs or good old fashioned paper and crayons. Can't imagine ingesting foam is healthy, and the sticky residue sticks to carpet too. It is like a slimey flemmy goop. Pretty colors...maybe find a way to harden this stuff and make xmas ornaments out of it instead.

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: Oh, no, Critical Dad, sounds like you got a bad batch of Playfoam! It shouldn't stick to ANYTHING at all. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org so I can replace it for you, free of charge. PS - Playfoam is non-toxic, so the bit your son ate won't hurt him!
My 3 year old has LOVED playing with this playfoam and I seem to find the ball of the mushed together foam in his room just about every morning him having grabbed it to play with in bed! Since the playfoam doesn't dry out I don't have to worry or stress about it being left out of the package! Plus, it has really good about very little mess! Occasionally a few of the tiny foam balls will be separated "from the pack" and get lost but it hasn't been a big deal so far. While it's been a lot of fun for my boys to play with, I do think it's hard to make many things that really represent a real life object. For example, the most creative I really got was a snowman and a hot dog – very simple shapes. It is hard to create really defined lines with the foam so the designs to stay pretty simple. This is really a non-issue for younger children though as they wouldn't be attempting complex designs.
