When I was sent No Mess Play Foam to review from Learning Resources, I was very intrigued. Would it really be no mess? How well would it stick together? Would there be little balls of foam all over the floor?
Miss M who is 5 was very keen to try the Play Foam – she loves anything crafty and was eager to get her fingers on this new and exciting looking texture. The first thing I noticed was how pliable the balls of foam were and you can literally mould them into shapes, pull it apart and stick it back together. In fact it seemed incredibly sticky but the bizarre things was there was no stickiness on your fingers or to anything else. Wow – quite amazing, I was definitely impressed, the “No Mess” quality of this product really is true.
Mister B absolutely adored testing his fingers in the Play Foam and together they had sausage rolling races and really helped them interact and have fun. The colours will merge if you mix the individual colours together which did eventually happen to ours, but this didn’t phase my little ones in the slightest and they continued to play with this day after day.
A few days later I came home to find daddy playing with the Play Foam, creating different shapes such as a pear, turtle, duck, rowing boat!! The children were fascinated by his creations and it really spurred them on to have a go at trying different ideas for themselves.
We’ve had lots of fun with No Mess Play Foam as it really is different to anything else we’ve tried. We’d highly recommend everyone to give it a go – lots of sticky fun with no mess – what more could you ask for!!
