I bought this for my 5 year old godchild since he is a very artistic young lad, always creating paper characters or playing with clay.
He loved the colours and the feel of the dough and has been mixing them up and making dinosaurs and knights and whatnot with so many details that I can surely see where he is heading career-wise.
It's great that he can play with these and not worry about his 2 year old sister who is not allowed to play with other "big kid" toys of his because of her age. Watching them squish the colours with they tiny fingers is a delight and it's great to know that they are nontoxic and so safe to use. The quantities are just right, so they can share them and make new ones too. However, you must be careful about not leaving the dough out too much cause it becomes a bit dry if you don't return it to the box.
I might soon consider buying them some moulding shapes for playdoh, since they are bound to love them.
Also, did I mention what a great price this is? Just out of curiosity, I checked the price in stores and it was sometimes even several pounds more expensive! A great investment, all in all!
