Squishy Squashy Moon Dough Giveaway

Product Review
(Daddy reviews)

The monkies, especially Ayd, love playing with Play-doh. BUT as parents, we all know what the end result will be when they are done playing with it. The dough will be everywhere - floor, chairs, hair and even mouth if they get too zealous about it - and by everywhere, I really mean everywhere. So suffice to say, this nasty stuff usually give me the chills whenever it makes an appearance.

So imagine my horror - and the children's delight - when we were sent not one, not two but three boxes of Moon Dough by the people at Emway Singapore. 

Moon Dough is marketed as 'the magical moulding dough that never dries out and allows kids to create their own fun with no mess!' Truth be told, I was a little sceptical at first. But the monkies' enthusiasm soon engulfed my nagging doubts.

And those doubts were tossed aside, albeit temporary, when I saw how the faces of the monkies lit up as the boxes were ripped open.

This was our first time coming into contact with Moon Dough, and it wasn't what we had expected at all. I guess the best way to describe the dough is that it looks like butter but feels like candy floss. It is nothing like the traditional play dough; it is extremely light and moulds just as well. In fact, I loved the feel of it so much that I couldn't stop picking bits up and squashing it between my fingers too! Ditto for Ash I guess.

The first set the monkies dabbled with was the Hamburgers one, where they had the tools to create a hamburger meal with fries.

The moulds for the patty, bread and fries were of the stamping kind, which makes it a lot easier for the monkies to churn out that perfect happy meal.

The Grocery Store was next, and the coolest part of the set had got to be the cash register.

One just needs to load some Moon Dough into the top of the cash register, turn the handle and voila - a coin will roll out from the side one after another.

Besides the cash register, the set also includes a shopping basket, complete with various moulds which included a pineapple, apple, milk carton, can, bread stick and a turkey drumstick. All good enough for a great time at the supermarket!

The final set was the Snack Shop, which was the fave of the lot among the monkies. And it wasn't difficult to see why - after all, which kid can resist popcorn AND ice cream all rolled into one handy machine?

The first thing that struck me about the set was actually how easy it was to put everything together as there weren't any fiddly bits to set up. The next thing was how therapeutically fun it was to squish some Moon Dough into the top of the machine, turn the handle and watch them jump about - just like in a real popcorn machine!

Ale, on the other hand, preferred something colder where she got to indulge in some ice cream sundae.

An icy treat, just the way she loves it!

So I guess it is safe to say that all 3 monkies thoroughly loved their time with Moon Dough. But one nagging question remains - Is it MESSY?

Well, it does break off when you are moulding it, so there were a lot of bits on the floor by the time the monkies were done playing with it. I used a bigger ball of dough to pick up the little bits, which was picked up rather easily as the dough is so light. Definitely a lot easier to clean up than the other playing dough for sure!

Overall, I have to say I am pretty impressed with Moon Dough. It is odourless, wheat free and hypo-allergenic which makes it safe for younger kids to play with. Best of all, it never dries out. That's right, you can leave it out of the box or bag and it would not dry up. So I am dead certain that we will get a lot of use out of it.

From a sensory point of view, I think that the texture of the Moon Dough is fantastic and strangely therapeutic. All of us definitely had a blast with the sets of Moon Dough... yes, the wifey and me included. LOL.

And we want to share the experience with you too... by giving away ONE set of Moon Dough (Snack Shop)!

Moon dough never dries up! That is so cool! Means I do not have to replendish the stock over and over again!

My three little chipmunks (aged 3, 2 and 5 months) would love to get hold of one of those and mummy would happily be cleaning up their mess after they are done! Ok it might be too early for the last one, sadly he can only watch his two korkors have fun, for now :)

My daughter loves Moon Dough (she has the ice-cream set). She can play with it for hours cos they are easy to mould and never dries out. Much more superior than the traditional playdoh. I'll love to win this Popcorn set for her so she can start a small mini Moon Dough Cafe! Thanks for organising this giveaway! :)

Hi I'm at Toys R Us @ forum but they don't carry Moon dough here. In fact they they heard of it :(

Hi Anon,

The last I knew, it was sold at Toys R Us. Takashimaya also sells them.

Maybe the product has been pulled off the shelves due to a lack of interest? I don't remember seeing them at the toys section for quite some time.
