Playfoam Review

Playfoam looks like the polystyrene beads you get in beanbags and as I opened the packaging I was a little worried that the little beads would go everywhere. In reality this was not the case at all as Playfoam sticks together and actually feels quite sticky in your hands, yet surprisingly does not stick to clothes, fabrics, carpets or anything else that Playdoh does!  

My sons loved playing with it and whilst you can't get the same precision modelling that you can get with Playdoh it was still possible to create simple models with it. We made an elephant and snail and Auntie Jackie  made the pink mouse.

There was a good mix of colours and whilst I like to keep colours separate, mixed up Playdoh is a real pet hate of mine, with Playfoam you could stick different colours together and also separate them when you dismantle the model. This gave it a big thumbs up from me!

The big advantage that Playfoam has is that it never dries out. It would have been nice if there was a container to keep it it in but we have plenty of plastic boxes so it now has a new home in one of those.

Playfoam is non toxic and suitable for children aged 3+ 
It is available from the Learning Resources website and has a RRP of £9.00

If you would like to win some Playfoam for your children, Learning resources currently have a competition running on Facebook where you can win a Playfoam Combo Eight Pack like the one we received.

Learning Resources kindly sent us a pack of Playfoam for the purposes of this review but all words and opinions are our own
