Play-Doh Plus: Sweet Shoppe Frosting Fun Bakery Playset (Review andGiveaway!)

Monday, 15 April 2013

As a kid, I loved creating things out of the old-fashioned plasticine. Never mind the foul smell, and that it stained my fingers whatever colour I chose to work with. I've long since stopped playing with those, but they held some great memories of play fun growing up!

So when I was presented with the opportunity to try out the new Play Doh compound, I was terribly excited. I'm not sure how the two year old boy will take to it, but now is perhaps a good time as any to try to see if he can exercise the imagination enough to create something out of - well... practically nothing! (The husband will attest to my proficiency in that department!)


The PLAY-DOH Plus Sweet Shoppe FROSTING FUN BAKERY Playset comes with the new Play-Doh Plus compound, which promises a more engaging play due to its softer and more pliant nature. From the attractive packaging, I was excited to note that we can create realistic looking cupcakes and cakes, complete with frosting details. Now all that’s left is to see if I'm able to do so, with BabyMoo's help!


BabyMoo knows Mehmee is hopeless when it comes to setting up stuff that comes in pieces from a box, so because Daddy is not around, he's taken charge!



What's in the box: Playset, 2-piece extruder, shelf, tray, cake stand, turntable, display dome, 4 cake cutters, 4 extruder tips, cupcake liner, cake server, plate, plastic knife, fork, 2 cans of Play-Doh Brand Modeling Compound and 2 cans of Play-Doh Plus compound.

Set-up is pretty easy, because the base itself has the different sized 'holes' to affix the parts. I didn't even need to look at the instructions manual - I just tried to push the domes and parts into the appropriate places!



We put the Play-Doh Plus compound into the syringe-like 'extruder', and push it through so that the 'frosting' comes out through the tips. There are three different extruder tips, so there are 3 different frosting designs to play with. I loved the bright colours and the texture, which made it so easy to mould and shape to whatever we fancy!


What I didn't like, however, was that the extruder was too big (length-wise), and thus we had to use up quite a bit of Play-Doh to get just a few 'strings' of frosting. Furthermore, since it was so soft, most of it got stuck on the sides of the extruder, and even though I tried scraping it off, it crumbled and got stuck onto the floor instead!

I couldn't salvage it, and in the end, had to use a piece of tissue to clean the piece, wasting quite a fair bit of Play-Doh in the process. Since it came only in a 1-oz pack, we were left with practically nothing much for play on another day.


But look what Mummy we made!! I was quite proud of that cupcake, I tell ya! BabyMoo kept wanting to eat it, which just goes to show that part of it being realistic? I have to give it to the people at Hasbro for thinking up of such a delightful product!


Now... for the best part.
