Moon Dough Magic Barnyard

I used to think that all molding dough was created equally. But recently, thanks to Team Mom, my kids and I had a chance to test some Moon Dough Magic Barnyard. And now my perceptions have totally changed! Right off the bat you need to know that Moon Dough never dries out, which is a huge hit with me. After all, pieces are always being left out, the lids aren’t being put on properly or just after time, dough gets dry and cracked. With Moon Dough being so soft {think those stress reliever balls} and never drying out, you won’t have those little hard bits that seem to get spread around your house. Plus, Moon Dough is  hypo-allergenic and wheat-free – just in case you have kids with sensitivities or allergies. Other great properties is that Moon Dough doesn’t not stick to or stain material – another great feature when it comes to cleaning the area or clothing. So basically, it’s pretty kid-friendly stuff.

As for the kids, they have a blast with their Moon Dough Magic Barnyard. With this set in particular, it’s easy for the 2 year old twins to create animals, as they just have to turn the handle. It’s much easier for them at their age, as they can’t actually shape their own animals yet {though they do make their own ‘made up’ objects and food items, which is hilarious!} There’s just something so creative and fun about modeling dough – it never gets old and boring for kids! Meant for ages 2-4, I think Moon Dough will also entertain the older kids for hours too. And, it’s an easy clean-up when it’s time to put it away.

The Barnyard Play Set included:

  • Magical molding barnyard, fence and hay bale molds
  • Themed play mat
  • Four unique animal molds: cow, pig, sheep, and horse
  • Three colors of Moon Dough

Keep in mind parents, this stuff isn’t as pleasant smelling as other varieties, though the scent does go away to almost nothing after some uses. As well, I know of a few parents that get aggravated with mixing of dough colors – which this stuff likes to do. As for my own preference, I’ve never managed to keep any brands of dough from mixing eventually. So, if you can’t beat them – join them!

Other Moon Dough play sets available:
Moon Dough Pizza Shop, Magic Molding Doghouse, and Moon Dough Burger Shop. Moon Dough Refill Packs are also available, and they come in the colors Green, Purple, Blue, White, Orange, Red, and Pink.

Moon Dough is available at so many stores across North America {very convenient!}:
Toys “R” Us, Walmart, Target, Kmart,, Michaels, and eToys.

I wrote this post for a blog tour with Team Mom and received a Moon Dough Barn play set to test out with my toddler. All thoughts and opinions are 100% mine.
