As a parent, I hate playdoh. Whenever the kids have finished, there are little bits of it all over the table, floor and kids. I'm finding it for weeks afterwards. The lovely coloured pots soon merge into a muddy blur.
But my kids love it. And they love this which lets them make ice creams and decorate them with their favourite playdoh. You can have sprinkles and make all sorts of things, but the best bit is you can make farting noises while squirting pretend ice cream into a cone. What 5 year old wouldn't love that, eh?
