moon dough...

You know how smart those advertising people are?  And how they advertise things specifically for kids when they know kids will be watching?  And how they know those kids will ask over and over and over and over and over again for something until their parents buy it for them?  (mostly because they want their kids to just STOP asking?)  Do you? neither. 

BUT...I will say that when we opened our latest package from Team Mom and found MOON DOUGH inside my kids thought they had died and gone to heaven.  They had been asking over and over and over (you get the picture here) for moon dough - every time the commercial came on tv.  Well, I hadn't given in (yet), but this time I didn't have to because Team Mom and Spin Master sent us Moon Dough!

After the kids settled down enough to open the package, here's what we found:


Of course, at this point, I had to put the camera down and open the box and get it all set up for the boys. ;)


The consistency of moon dough is hard to explain. It's kind of like foamy sand.  kind of.  not really.  I don't know how to describe it.  But it feels pretty cool.

There are several ways to make the shapes - there are molds hooked in the barn, and there are these separate molds you just press the dough into and pop it out.





Apparently the dough never dries I'm guessing that also means it doesn't dry up in carpet either, which is a plus!

The kids had fun.  lots of fun.  lots of messy fun.  crumbly fun.


And when they were done, I got to have fun.  sweeping it up.  It actually wasn't too bad (cleaning it up) - it swept up quite easily.  I would imagine if you used it on carpet, it would vacuum up easily as well.


And then we just mushed all the colors together and now we have lots of green moon dough! :o)

I'm sure we'll be buying some refill dough soon:



Thanks, Team Mom and Spin Master - the kids love their Moon Dough!


You can buy Moon Dough on - there are several different toys and accessories. 

Here's a link to the Barn:


You can also buy Moon Dough Puppies:

My kids want them all!  I told them they should ask Santa. :o)


  1. LOL my son, Brodey, saw this commercial this morning and is now asking for it! Glad to see the kiddos like it and it's easy to clean up! I just might have to get him some! :)

  2. We have some of that, too! The barn and one other ;) I have to say the clean up was much easier than I exected!! Love your cute photos!
