It’s so not cool to say you’re jealous of your kids, right? I don’t care: all I ever got was those little plastic pots of Play-Doh. And after seeing the spring line of Play-Doh toys from Playskool, I AM jealous.
For starters, I’m being forced to live out my monkey madness through my daughter’s new Coco-Nutty Monkey, a little critter that grows Play-Doh hair and a Play-Doh tongue. Tap his cute little tail, and he starts clapping, making Play-Doh shapes out of the interchangeable molds you strap onto his hands. As if that isn’t enough of an improvement over our old Play-Doh snakes, the monkey’s island home is full of molds, including a tiki torch that sports its own hair-raising lid.
For the kids who prefer their Play-Doh as a dish served cold, the Spaghetti Factory will hit the spot thanks to a meatball maker that rolls out perfectly round balls of Doh and presses for ragged-edged ravioli. With everything they need to cook you a special dish, right down to slotted spoons and veggie molds, they’ll make you a meal that’s on the house.
