Product review ~ Glo Floam

for ages 4+
bought at toysrus on sale for $3.5
can buy online just search google for glo floam

The back of the package says you can roll it, mold it, and cover it, and it glows in the dark!
So we bought it sense it was on sale for cheap and we have yet to try it. Here is our review~

for looks I give a 5 out of 5
the package is nice, looks very fun

for mess I give it a 3 out of 5
the blue was very sticky to hands and anything else it touched. (I did read the booklet that came with it and it says if sticky let it sit for 15 minutes, but seriously what kid is just gonna want it to sit for 15 mins before playing... either way we did and it was still sticky the whole time we played)
Also if you mix colors that is it you can not get them apart again, and of course my kids loved to mix the colors.

for play time I give it a 3 out of 5
My daughter played for about 20 mins before she moved on and never asked for it again....(its been about a week now)
It says it glows in the dark but for us it really did not. The green did some but not bright enough to even get a picture. It did glow some under black light (as you see in picture) but it was a little upsetting that even after we "charged" it like the box said it didn't glow in the dark. Now you can use play doh molds and make shapes and things and let them dry out to play with over and over but we did not let it dry out.

for packaging I give it a 1 out of 5
They come in these little plastic containers that have these little plastic lids you are suppose to store it in when done playing. The morning after we played I went to move them and noticed one popped open and dried out. They really could have made a better way to store it.

All in all I would not have spent more then what I did for this item and will not be buying it again.

Valentines day sensory bin for all ages!

Sensory bins are something you can really make for any age and to fit into any budget. Mine was made for my own kids (ages 6&7) and made from items bought at my local dollar store. A sensory bin is a bin that engages some if not all of the 5 senses. Mine did not include scent or taste but was followed up by Valentines day candy as a treat. Now that my kids are no longer toddlers but still love these bins I try to include things I can use later on for different crafts or decorating. So for this bin I added heart shaped buckets, shredded paper, stickers, necklaces, Valentines day clothes pins, and a heart shaped bell door hanger. Recently I have noticed my kids enjoy adding other toys to play time and I love that. Seeing what they come up with and hearing the stories change as they grow is pretty neat to see. Anyway I hope this inspires you to try a sensory bin out with your baby/toddler/or child, and have a good rest of your morning, evening or night! Bye!
