Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely a must have! My daughter is 3 and half and we love this stuff! Yes it has tiny balls and is a little sticky, but how else would you get it to hold together? Also, it's much cleaner then kinetic sand (which we LOVE!) Definitely a great way to get your kids to do hands on learning. We make letters and numbers and have her guess them! I'd highly recommend this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have!! I first bought this when I saw kids playing with it in videos. I bought some for my granddaughter and we've been hooked ever since! Even though we still love play-doh, we prefer the play foam! Everyone that comes to our house - children and adults - start playing with this and pretty soon everyone is playing with it! We absolutely LOVE it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not much to do with this Play doh is much better. There is not much to do with this product and it is on the sticky side. kids loved it tough.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful, sticky, and color rubs off on hands! Bought for my girls for Christmas. Was excited that the packaging read "no mess and won't stick" but that's just not the case. It felt just like squishing a rice crisipie bar and was equally messy and sticky and the then coloring rubbed off onto our hands. Totally disappointed!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Totally disappointing! This product was quite disappointing. The packaging is poor, once you take it off the cardboard there is no place to put it. The stuff comes apart in tiny pieces and it is quite difficult to put it back together. It was all over the place, and made a mess. Certainly doesn't come close to Play Dough. The photo on the back of the package is misleading as well. The photos shows the various colors uniformly mixed. The foam does not mix easily at all. It was exceedingly frustrating for our granddaughter.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Creative fun The packaging made it awkward to open. Sealed containers would be better. My son is 9 & he had fun creating with the foam. He thought the texture was neat. I would recommend for younger children but apparently older ones may enjoy it too!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Messy This stuff is pretty sticky, and if you mix any colours it just turns into an ugly orangey colour. It kept my 3 year olds busy for a bit, but it wasn't fun once the colours faded and it stuck to everything

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not so non-stick My son was very excited to play with this and I thought it was going to be great. No mess, not sticky, sounds like fun! And it was until I tried to clean it up. I cannot get the sticky residue from the glitter foam off of the table! I have used everything, even nail polish remover, and there is still a sticky layer that won't come off. Disappointing for sure!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the best product for children This I think is the best product for kids to use.Also it would be a good gift.Im about to be 11 and I still play with it.Thats how fun this is.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Stains!! My daughter enjoyed playing with this. However, be warned. Unlike what the package says, this stuff sticks!! My daughter loves kitchen play and she used these as play food and put them in little cups and on plates. It stained the containers and I still can't get it out. Also, in still finding little beads everywhere in the house which is hard since I've for a crawling 8 month old. I would rather use play dough in its place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fun! Love this product! My 4.5yr old and my 2yr old love to play with it! We actually took it on a long plane ride and it worked great! Minimal mess with the same fun as playdough. The kids love hiding their toys in it, making shapes and pretending! Would definitely recommend this to all my friends!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fun and reusable! This product is great because it doesn't smell and it doesn't leave sticky residue on one's hands. The downside is if you drop it on the rug, the item gets fuzzy. And once you mix the colors, there's no separating them. They're forever-mixed. Really little kids might mistake it for candy but age 4 and over should know better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy clean up The product is fun and easier to clean up than play dough or sand although if so,we breaks apart from the main clump it may. E hard to remove from clothing, carpet, etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Playfoam Great toy for kids of all ages. My 8 and 5 year old loved it and so did our 12 & 13 year old friends!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from shaping and molding fun My children (ages 11 w/ special needs, 8, and 6) enjoyed shaping and molding the play foam and made a list of things they liked and didn't like while they played. The liked that it came in fun colors, was easy to shape and mold, was sturdy, and was a different texture than play dough. They didn't like that it was sticky, that the little balls occasionally fell off and onto the floor, that it could not be smoothed out like play dough, and that there was not much of each color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No Mess, No Cleanup Unlike play-doh, there really was no mess or cleanup. My children, 7 and 9, enjoyed the texture and ease of use. You would think that it would be sticky, but it only sticks to itself. As a parent, gotta love it! You could see the creativity coming out as I watched my children play with it. I would recommend this to parents. Very inexpensive fun.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Toy! Got this toy for my 2 1/2 year old twins and they love it. They love molding it into different shapes and animals. I was worried the little balls would all fall apart but so far they seem to stick together really well. A good alternative to playdough which is a lot messier and sticks more to playing surfaces.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from seven great colors of play foam We have lots of fun with this and my children use it in so many creative ways. We love play dough, but it tends to dry out so fast, and this does not. The colors are also vibrant. The only downfall is the yellow one was definitely off and created a huge gross mess. Once we scraped it off of everything, it went straight in the trash.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Playfoam - more like Playfun! My daughter loved the playfoam! She likes to mold the foam into various animals and have us guess as to what it is. However, it claims that there is no mess to clean up afterwards and that is not entirely true. The playfoam consists of 100's of little tiny pieces of foam and they will come apart and you will find them all over your house. I do not mind a mess so it didn't bother me but if you are very meticulous about your house, perhaps you shouldn't buy this product. The little balls don't ruin furniture or anything like that - it just sticks to stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Playfoam: A Busy Mom's Dream My kids love playing with their playfoam. They create something new everytime. Fun and quick to clean up - no clean up, really.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not for warmer climates I love the idea of this because it's in theory very tactille and engrossing. It was a lot of fun to play with while in cold temps but once it was even a touch warmer than room temperature the beads started all sticking to my hands it was falling appart like chewing gum and all the sticky pink residue started staying on my hands turning them neon pink. Maybe I just got a bad batch, I really want to like this product, but right now I can't get the beads off my neon pink hand!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does not Dry out- REALLY! It does not dry out, no matter how long you leave it uncovered someplace. I am going on nearly a month uncovered in the stockroom at the Pre-K- and it is still just fine. Side note? My son ate some- and I can tell you for sure it's non-toxic. Ugh. First thing he ever ate that WASN'T food, LOL.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun for all ages! Play Foam is a fun new play-doh like substance. It is like play-doh as that its fun to build with and squishy in your hands, but it is also unlike it. Play Foam will never dry out nor will it stick into surfaces. This package is nice because it comes with eight different colors, although young kids will probably end up smooshing them all together pretty quickly and once together you can't separate the colors. I love though that its unique consistency allows my sons creative play and building. It is hard to describe the consistency other than to say its like little Styrofoam pieces all together. So far my boys haven't managed to stick it or ruin anything. They actually just like to sit at the kitchen table and just squish it around in their hands! I do wish it came in containers like play-doh to store it in, because even though it won't dry out I still want it stored in something. I ended up using a plastic Tupperware container for the colors. Overall the Play Foam from Educational Insights is a great product for kids to play around with and you really can't beat the price!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money "Playfoam never dries out so the creativity never ends-and the secret, no-stick formula means you can take it anywhere for imaginative fun on the go!" Bought this for our two-year-old twin granddaughters (we were taken in by the display that promoted a tie-in with Jeopardy), planned to have it as a surprise for the girls to play with on 3-hour road trip. Made certain to keep it in the house until we departed, so heat wouldn't be a problem. In spite of our precautions, en route the Playfoam started crumbling, was basically unusable (the girls never actually got to play with it). Disappointing, would rate it "0" if that option were available.
