Customer Reviews of PlayFoam 4 Pack Original


Rated 5 out of 5 by from This stuff is Awesome! The negative reviews on this site are ridiculous. People you are crazy. This stuff is awesome. Yes it has a sticky residue, it is a children's toy, get over it. I have A 4 year old girl and she loves the stuff. She plays with it every day. There's no end to what you can do with it. She makes a hat out of it, a ball, many different creatures. Really gets her creativity going.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fun, but leaves residue Lots of fun and initially I thought it was much cleaner than Play-Doh. However when it came time to clean up, I noticed a very sticky residue all over my daughters high chair tray where she was playing with the material. I've tried getting off the residue with soap and water, scrubbing with the back of the sponge, and even tried Goo Gone. Nothing has gotten it off so far :(

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My kids are sad and I'm not a happy mommy! I really was excited to get this product as I am not a fan of playdoh. I purchased the 20 pack of the foam. My kids loved it maybe for the first 30 minutes. The foam became extremely sticky, stringy and there was sticky stuff on their little hands (and mine too), They were not able to mold anything at this point besides a ball. The foam would stick to their fingers if they tried pulling it apart. I have also found it in their hair tonight, clothes and random areas around the house. I sent an email to customer service. Wish this would have worked out because it was a great idea and looked fun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Squishy fun!! I use this with pupils that have poor pencil control and poor fine motor skills. It can be fit into a busy day and is always great fun. The pupil chooses something to make and we have 2 mins to each make and compare them. The best hung is that it doesn't dry out and is always ready to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Playfoam Classic 4 Pack Looks like the boys can play alone or together. Also, gives parents free time while boys are playing. Haven't seen them open the gifts yet, but from the description products are reliable and non-messy. Lets the boys create many images.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A Fathers View My kids wanted to play with it, but it leaves a sticky residue on everything it touches...almost greasy. and the little balls of foam end up all over and this has glitter mixed in it as you can imagine the weeks you'll be finding glitter in strange places for weeks. My daughter(5) was having fun playing with it, but my son(almost 2) was taste testing it. OK IN THE GARBAGE. Do not buy this...stick with lincoln logs or good old fashioned paper and crayons. Can't imagine ingesting foam is healthy, and the sticky residue sticks to carpet too. It is like a slimey flemmy goop. Pretty colors...maybe find a way to harden this stuff and make xmas ornaments out of it instead.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun and long lasting, limited shaping My 3 year old has LOVED playing with this playfoam and I seem to find the ball of the mushed together foam in his room just about every morning him having grabbed it to play with in bed! Since the playfoam doesn't dry out I don't have to worry or stress about it being left out of the package! Plus, it has really good about very little mess! Occasionally a few of the tiny foam balls will be separated "from the pack" and get lost but it hasn't been a big deal so far. While it's been a lot of fun for my boys to play with, I do think it's hard to make many things that really represent a real life object. For example, the most creative I really got was a snowman and a hot dog - very simple shapes. It is hard to create really defined lines with the foam so the designs to stay pretty simple. This is really a non-issue for younger children though as they wouldn't be attempting complex designs. Disclosure: I received 2 4-packs of Playfoam for free to review on my website A Mom's Take. Opinions are my own.
