My daughter is four years old, and was introduced to the wonderful possibilities of Play Dough around her second birthday! Since then, she’s been a fan and never tires of creating, manipulating, and constructing with play dohs sets of all kinds.
Let’s talk about the Play Doh Candy Cyclone set which offers hundreds of possibilities in creating and endless hours of fun for children of all ages. This set is really awesome for children. It allows kids to create really cool looking lollipops, candies, gum balls, and many more sweet looking treats!
The set itself looks like a cleverly constructed gum ball machine, and if you ask me, something you’d quite possibly find in Wonka factory or a story by Dr. Seuss. Included are 4 different colors of Play-Doh modeling compound, licorice presser, plastic knife, 2 dishes, 4 pop sticks, instructions, and of course the play set machine itself.
When I gave my daughter the Play Doh Candy Cyclone set, she was ecstatic and played with it for several hours before I persuaded her to do something else! I really like that the whole set it easy for her to maneuver and figure out all on her own. She’s been happily making Play Dough pretend to eat treats for her whole family.
I usually have to handle to clean up of all things Play Dough and was thrilled that even though there’s a few nooks and crannies that this set was extremely easy to clean! The back door of the machine opens up so you can clean the inside and out. Also the little licorice presser which I’ve dubbed the frosting gun, cleans out super easy too even though I was thinking I’d have issues!
Overall, I’d highly recommend the Play Doh Candy Cyclone set for children ages 3 and up! It a wonderful toy that encourages free thinking, exploration, and build up those fine motor skills. If your child likes rolling, squishing, sculpting, and molding than this set is for you!
