Terrible product, made huge mess
About Me Parent
Immediately started finding balls everywhere. Our daughter has a stuffed bunny that she sleeps with every night. The balls were so entangled in the bunny's fur that we had to wash it overnight. The balls then got all in our washing machine and dryer, and over everything else that we washed. I am not one to write reviews, but wanted to warn other parents about this!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Pretty good form

We used this foam for a 2nd grade habitat project. It starts off strong molding into many different shapes (we were doing coral) but eventually falls apart or "wilts" . Still it was colorful and fun and worked in the end.

AMAZING!! Throw out your playdough!

About Me First Time Parent
We have an almost 3 year old - we bought this last night and it was a hit - not just with our Son but with us! It allows him to be creative, make things and we don't have to worry about it sticking to the rug, floor or us! Not sure what it's made of but it stays together and allows you to make things - we even added pipe cleaners and googly eyes to make bugs! Great product - wish we had found it sooner!
Merchant response: Ah, Chels, thanks for the great review!
Perfect For Goodie Bags/Stocking Stuffer

My 4 year-old loves his Playfoam! We use it for everyday fun play and during our "learning time." My son is always excited to form the Playfoam into whatever we are currently learning about; letters, numbers, animals, etc. I recently purchased the 20 pack to use throughout the coming months. I will pack a few of the individual Playfoam packets to bring on an upcoming trip for hours of mess free, creative fun. Others will be saved to use as holiday stocking stuffers and for birthday party goodie bags. My only complaint is with the sparkle packs. The glitter does come off and is a hassle to clean, but I simply save those packs for outside play. I imagine they would be perfect for princess/fairy themed play.
Merchant response: Thanks, Mommy!
A must have!!!

I purchased this item when it was listed on Zulily for my daughter's 4th birthday. It is amazing! She has now had it over 6 months and it is still going strong. She mixed all the colors into one big mound and uses it for so many different things. She makes animals out of it, pretends it is food for her dinosaurs, makes costumes for her dinosaurs, etc, etc, etc! We keep the big pile stored in a Tubberware bowl when she isn't using it but it gets used almost daily and still hasn't dried out. The colors have faded a lot, but she doesn't care and neither do it. She also has gotten it on the carpet and even stepped on it and squished it right in. It came right up. This is one of these best inventions ever!
Merchant response: WOW! We couldn't have asked for a better review. Thanks so much for posting!
We Love PlayFoam
from British Columbia Canada
About Me Education Oriented, Parent Of Two Or More Children, Working Parent
My 4 year old Loves PlayFoam. She loves the variety of colors. She likes to mold it into items, shapes and designs. She really loves mixing all the colors together.I love PlayFoam because if it is left out, it never dries up. PlayFoam does not stick to the furniture or clothing either. It has sparkles in it so make sure it is used in the play area or on a surface you can wipe because it will be decorated with sparkles :), but they wipe off.
Merchant response: MomOnTheGo, thanks for taking time out to tell us how great Playfoam is - we agree! Just say no to messes and YES to great big fun!
