    Play Foam is a fun new play-doh like substance. It is like play-doh as that its fun to build with and squishy in your hands, but it is also unlike it. Play Foam will never dry out nor will it stick into surfaces. This package is nice because it comes with eight different colors, although young kids will probably end up smooshing them all together pretty quickly and once together you can't separate the colors. I love though that its unique consistency allows my sons creative play and building. It is hard to describe the consistency other than to say its like little Styrofoam pieces all together. So far my boys haven't managed to stick it or ruin anything. They actually just like to sit at the kitchen table and just squish it around in their hands! I do wish it came in containers like play-doh to store it in, because even though it won't dry out I still want it stored in something. I ended up using a plastic Tupperware container for the colors. Overall the Play Foam from Educational Insights is a great product for kids to play around with and you really can't beat the price!

    "Playfoam never dries out so the creativity never ends—and the secret, no-stick formula means you can take it anywhere for imaginative fun on the go!" Bought this for our two-year-old twin granddaughters (we were taken in by the display that promoted a tie-in with Jeopardy), planned to have it as a surprise for the girls to play with on 3-hour road trip. Made certain to keep it in the house until we departed, so heat wouldn't be a problem. In spite of our precautions, en route the Playfoam started crumbling, was basically unusable (the girls never actually got to play with it). Disappointing, would rate it "0" if that option were available.

      The product is fun and easier to clean up than play dough or sand although if so,we breaks apart from the main clump it may. E hard to remove from clothing, carpet, etc.

        My children (ages 11 w/ special needs, 8, and 6) enjoyed shaping and molding the play foam and made a list of things they liked and didn't like while they played. The liked that it came in fun colors, was easy to shape and mold, was sturdy, and was a different texture than play dough. They didn't like that it was sticky, that the little balls occasionally fell off and onto the floor, that it could not be smoothed out like play dough, and that there was not much of each color.

          Unlike play-doh, there really was no mess or cleanup. My children, 7 and 9, enjoyed the texture and ease of use. You would think that it would be sticky, but it only sticks to itself. As a parent, gotta love it! You could see the creativity coming out as I watched my children play with it. I would recommend this to parents. Very inexpensive fun.

            Got this toy for my 2 1/2 year old twins and they love it. They love molding it into different shapes and animals. I was worried the little balls would all fall apart but so far they seem to stick together really well. A good alternative to playdough which is a lot messier and sticks more to playing surfaces.

                We have lots of fun with this and my children use it in so many creative ways. We love play dough, but it tends to dry out so fast, and this does not. The colors are also vibrant. The only downfall is the yellow one was definitely off and created a huge gross mess. Once we scraped it off of everything, it went straight in the trash.

                  My daughter loved the playfoam! She likes to mold the foam into various animals and have us guess as to what it is. However, it claims that there is no mess to clean up afterwards and that is not entirely true. The playfoam consists of 100's of little tiny pieces of foam and they will come apart and you will find them all over your house. I do not mind a mess so it didn't bother me but if you are very meticulous about your house, perhaps you shouldn't buy this product. The little balls don't ruin furniture or anything like that - it just sticks to stuff.
