I bought this for myself because I heard a lot about it. It's certainly a different texture than clay, play-doh, and plain old dirt, but it's messy. Before I knew it, I had white dust all over my desk. Definitely not something I'd let a kid play with indoors or in nice clothes. It's not really hard to clean up but it's an annoyance I'd rather not deal with. I'll probably keep it around and fiddle with it occasionally, but I wouldn't buy or recommend any Moon Dough products.
