Moon Dough Farm. She still loves making a barnyard full of animal friends! Over time she has gotten better and better at molding perfect little cow, pig, sheep, and horse. Whenever we see new sets at the store, ER's eyes always light up and she's been wanting to add to her collection. She was ecstatic when the latest and greatest from Moon Dough arrived on our door step for review.
Barn is that the way you mold the animals is different and through the use of Winder Walkers you can make your animals "move". Included in the box are: a Magic Molding Zoo, 2 Winder Walkers, 3 Animal Molds (Gorilla, Penguin, and Bear), 1 Fence Mold, and 3 Colors of Moon Dough (White, Orange, and Purple). The suggested retail for the set is $19.99.
Moon Dough inside, as ER is doing above.
Moon Dough are included so you can make several animals and also mold fences to create your zoo. ER enjoys seeing the molded animals walk as they are made, but gets the most use out of the set by taking them off the Winder Walkers and playing with them on their own. She loves to mold fences and we've added some extra Moon Dough packs so she can make plenty and still have animals.
Barn, I know with time she'll get the hang of it but I wouldn't expect most kids to be able to use it by themselves right from the get go.
What I like best about Moon Dough is that it doesn't dry out and it's soft marshmallow texture. It's great for molding and using with the various sets created by Spin Master for it. It does tend to crumble easily, which some parents might be bothered by. I happen to have a high tolerance for that kind of thing, probably because I used to teach twenty kindergarteners and painted with them all the time. The plus with Moon Dough, is that while it doesn't stick to surfaces and is easy to sweep up. The Barn also has a suggested age of 3+, but I feel the Magic Zoo is a more advanced set for kids as they outgrow the Barn, which I think is easier to use. Both are fun sets and I really like how the Magic Zoo addes another level of play for kids!
