Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

PlayMais

This box includes 500 brightly coloured, easy to model with bricks. The bricks are bigger than ones you may have seen before and biodegradable

PlayMais a new product from Germany. Makes modelling and construction child's play! Pieces stick together with water, Made from maize and coloured with non-toxic food dyes

Playmais is 100% biodegradable and is made only from non-modified maize and food colorings. Due to the natural starch content of the corn, only slight contact with water is enough for the pieces to be able to stick to one another or to card and paper. PlayMais can be pasted, cut, rolled, torn and shaped to the desires of your child's imagination or used to decorate drawings, pictures, ceramics, windows, or to make hanging mobiles. The manufacturer of PlayMais, was awarded both the ETA in 1996 and Efficiency Prize of North Rhine-Westphalia in 2001 for its energy efficient production and all-round sustainability.

The bricks of PlayMais are composed of corn, water and food dye. A little water is enough to stick the bricks thanks to the natural starch of corn.

The possibilities are unlimited: the child uses the modelling tool to mould the corn bricks and transforms them into any shape! They can make models into anything like farms, ships, greeting cards - the list is endless.

PlayMais stimulates children's creativity and imagination while also developing their motor skills. PlayMais allows children to work independently or as part of a team.

Playmais is a natural toy produced from cornstarch and brightly coloured with natural dyestuff. The dye won't damage clothes and washes out on a 30 degree wash cycle.

Playmais is an instructive and creative toy. It promotes the development of your child in different ways: creativity, fantasy, the powers of imagination and activity.

PLAYMAIS IS BIODEGRADABLE, HARMLESS AND DOES NOT CONTAIN TOXIC INGREDIENTS.

So buy with confidence.

    My kids (6 year old boy, 9 year old girl) had a lot of fun with this box. They started out with large structures, such as an igloo, a garden and a playground. Later on they experimented with micro models of flowers, bats and cats. A 3 year old boy on a visit cautiously started with a simple dog, but quickly expanded it to a mutant octopus that only stopped growing when he ran out of building material. The box is empty now, but we'll buy more.

    Do consider that this product is easy to build with and that it is single use. Smaller kids go through a lot of building material if it is not rationed (tip: Cut the pieces in half or quarter size with a scissor). This also means that there will quickly be a lot of new art pieces in the house. Recycling by scissor or pruning by dumpster will be necessary. Be sure not to throw out things that look like a cross between a swing and a Hobbit hole: It is an alien spaceship and it will be missed.

    Playmais is wonderful. My children (5 and 2) play with it for hours. No glue - always a bonus! And it can be joined in any way. All they need is a damp cloth and away they go. My daughter made a lovely castle with princesses and flowers and a sun etc. It's not hugely durable and will break apart reasonably easily but you use it like plasticine so that's not a problem. As a bonus you can just put it in the compost or break the bits apart to reuse. I would definitely recommend.

    These were a gift for my 4.5yr old - she loved them - bit expensive but they are really good and so easy to use. The first time she used them she was making things up without getting ideas from the leaflet. We all sat with her and made something. They are lovely.
