My children love Play Doh.
I on the other hand have a love-hate relationship with it. I love the scope of play it affords. I hate scooping it off the carpet!
I was really pleased to visit Hamleys recently and be privy to the introduction of Doh Vinci – the new creative range from Hasbro. Jadyn was thrilled to meet Dani Harmer and have a picture with her.
This new range is perfect for slightly older children who still love Play Doh (who doesn’t!!) and would like to do more with it.
The Doh Vinci Anywhere Art Studio is perfect for your On-the-Go ‘Da Vinci’
It includes –
An easel and storage case,
3 art boards,
2 blank design boards,
4 Deco Pop tubes in green, purple, yellow and pink
An inspiration guide
How it works –
Load the styler with the deco pop tube in whichever colour you are working with. Then press on the lever to decorate your chosen design. Leave to harden overnight.
The result – A 3D art creation.
You can either use the designs given or you can use the blank design board to create your masterpiece.
I like that it all packs into one case. There is place to hold more Deco Pop colours. It is really handy to carry around.
The styler does require a bit of getting used to and some pressure so that the deco pop comes out effectively so I think the target age is about right. It may be difficult for younger children to use.
Do wait for the colour to dry out between using another colour on your design.
This is a lovely creative kit for children over 6 years and Jadyn loves spending time with it. I have also been trying my hand at it and I enjoy it too.
I think this is an ideal way for a child to tap into their creative streak.
The ‘doh’ is a little bit thinner than the normal Play Doh so you can create beautiful designs. It is much like icing or frosting.
I think this would also be ideal for children to make as gifts for grandparents, siblings, cousins and uncles and aunts.
What we loved about it –
- Mess free
- Initiates Creativity in children
- Handy Storage included
- Can be used on the go
- Can create gifts for relatives
- Promotes hand to eye coordination
- Promotes motor skills
- More sets can be added to it for more play
The Doh Vinci Anywhere Art Studio is available for about £17.99 and it is great value for money. With the holidays in full swing, this is perfect for taking on holiday.
Thank you Hasbro for yet another creative way for keeping kids entertained. I know that I shall be making many additions to our set.
