Really not happy

      Comments about Playfoam® Classic 4-Pack:

      Grandma came to babysit and brought this as a fun activity. When I returned home there was a gross residue on the high chair tray where playtime occurred. Other craft activities occur on the try all the time (crayons, playdoh, etc.) and there is never any problem with the cleanup. The residue from this foam is ridiculously hard to get off the tray. The packaging says non-toxic but there is no way I'm allowing my kid to eat off of this tray until this gross residue is completely gone. I have tried cleaning it with soap and a sponge and it will NOT come off. I don't want to use chemicals or anything abrasive that will scratch the tray. This much thought shouldn't have to go into playtime cleanup. This stuff is just gross!

          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.

              Comments about Playfoam® Classic 4-Pack:

              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.

              Disclosure: I received 2 4-packs of Playfoam for free to review on my website A Mom's Take. Opinions are my own.
