This is for me one of my most favorite art and craft products. This has become a great thing to bring out when the kids can't play outside and offers so much fun. They can make literally anything with Play Foam from flowers, cars, animals, insects and well so much more. You can add the colors together, the only thing which is not a big deal to me is once they are smashed together those colors will always be together. Which kind of is like Tye-dye so not a big deal. My kids I swear played with this Play Foam for hours and never got tried. When they were done all I had to do was put them in a little tote I bought to store them and back to the top of the closet they went until the next time. It was a under 3 minute clean up oh how I did love that myself. The colors are super fun and come two different ways. The four colors on the top come normal colors and the bottom four come with glitter on them. So it does give a variety. I do love the fact that this never dries out so great for over and over use and plus it is non toxic which gives parents a good feeling with letting their little ones play with it. If you are looking for a fun, very little cleanup and safe product then you should really check this out.
