I was afraid the Moon Dough would be the same, and wouldn't let them play with it until I could make sure they had extra supervision. I didn't need to worry.
The dough is easy to mold and holds its shape even when handled roughly.
It almost feels like plastic and doesn't stick to most surfaces - including hands.
As to the Magic Zoo, it was a lot of fun. How it worked was you stuffed the dough into a chamber, and then wound a crank. The crank molded the dough into an animal form and placed it on wind up legs. When the crank was done winding, the chamber popped open and an animal walked out.
I loved that the set came with 2 moon dough colors, 3 different animals, and 2 sets of legs that wound themselves. My daughters loved turning the crank and anticipating when the animal would walk out. They loved it!
To Buy - I loved that Moon Dough was easy for my daughters to use, and that there was hardly any clean up time. Moon dough is also non toxic and wheat free! For more info check outMoon Dough on Facebook!
