    Comments about Educational Insights Playfoam® Classic 4-Pack:

    Lots of fun and initially I thought it was much cleaner than Play-Doh. However when it came time to clean up, I noticed a very sticky residue all over my daughters high chair tray where she was playing with the material. I've tried getting off the residue with soap and water, scrubbing with the back of the sponge, and even tried Goo Gone. Nothing has gotten it off so far :(

      Comments about Educational Insights Playfoam® Classic 4-Pack:

      I read the package and thought what a fun idea. My grandson was going to visit so I bought a package. He was absolutely fascinated by it. He is very dexterous and managed to just pick out one teeny, tiny ball. That was it's only positive which was outweighed by all of the negatives. We discovered that it was VERY sticky. When we squeezed the ball and pulled it apart, fine strings of sticky stuff formed (like spider webs). Little balls detached and stuck to fingers and clothes. It might be a fun experience but I can't believe it was thought of by someone with children or a logical brain!

        I really was excited to get this product as I am not a fan of playdoh. I purchased the 20 pack of the foam. My kids loved it maybe for the first 30 minutes. The foam became extremely sticky, stringy and there was sticky stuff on their little hands (and mine too), They were not able to mold anything at this point besides a ball. The foam would stick to their fingers if they tried pulling it apart. I have also found it in their hair tonight, clothes and random areas around the house. I sent an email to customer service. Wish this would have worked out because it was a great idea and looked fun.

              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 Educational Insights 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.
