Educational Insights Squishy Squashy Playfoam ~ Review & Giveaway US 5/04

Thank you to Educational Insights for providing me with products in exchange for this honest blog review. All opinions are 100% my own.

Have you ever heard of Playfoam by Educational Insights? Playfoam is squishy, squashy, moldable foam. It is perfect for hours of creative play, developing fine motor skills, as well as tactile and sensory stimulation. Playfoam is a non-toxic blend. It won’t stick to carpeting or fabric and it won’t dry out.

My daughters had the opportunity to try the NEW Playfoam GO! travel set. The set comes in a secure travel case. The case has nine interior pockets. These nine pockets are enough room to hold all eight included Playfoam colors, plus a pocket for a custom color blend. The inside of the GO travel set also has four shape molds- triangle, star, circle, and square.

What does Playfoam feel like? I don’t know how to really describe it. Can you imagine making a marshmallow cereal treat with the foam beads from inside a bean bag chair? The mixture is sticky but not at all in a gross messy way. Playfoam mainly sticks to its self…not your hands or the surface you are playing on. We did find that Playfoam will stick to your hair, but can easily be combed out.

I was a little worried that Playfoam might not hold the interest of my daughters. My girls are eight and ten years old. The suggested age on Playfoam is three-six years old. I can honestly tell you, they have had the Playfoam GO! travel set for a few days and have spent multiple hours playing with it. I can also tell you, that I am much older than six years old and have had fun playing with it too!

Just in case you are wondering, TSA told me that Playfoam GO! travel set should pass through airport security and be allowed on the airplane. (Did you know you can send TSA a message on Facebook and they will let you know if a product will be allowed through security? How helpful is that! They answered my question about Playfoam in the same hour.)

Hello, my name is Laurie. I have been married to my husband for 10 years. We have two young daughters, ages 7 and 9 years old. My family and I live in Oregon so that means we are just minutes from the beach, mountains, and desert.  We love it here and try to spend as much time outdoors playing as we can.

    We had some of this when it first came out and it was a lot of fun! Sometimes the age suggestion is just that- a suggestion. I find that kids that are allowed to use their imagination don’t follow those sorts of rules…

    My daughter loves this stuff to death. She even uses it in making slime.
