I received this product complimentary to try out and give my honest review on. This playfoam is very fun for all ages. I received the dinosaur and undersea sets. It comes with different colors of the playfoam in different shapes. When we removed it from the package, I was hoping that the shaped package could be used as molds for it, so my kids could use them to make the eggs, fish, and stars, but the foam is a little to sticky for that purpose. It needs to be dug out of the package and you can't get it out in a good shape. The foam is sticky and holds together well to create shapes and creatures, but it's not overly sticky that it sticks to little hands. We only had to pick little balls off our hands a few times. You do have to watch and not let it fall on the floor because hairs will stick to it like crazy. Three of my children ages 6, 8, and 13 sat and played with it for hours. And I also had adults over and they sat around the table and played with it for a long time. It's almost therapeutic to sit and smoosh it. My children made all kinds of creations. Animals, ships, cakes... The foam holds it's shape for a little while and then starts to kind of fall. It is hard to make a tall creation, because there is really no support with foam balls and sticky stuff. Anything tall will fall over. The colors start out nice, but get mixed up very easily. Who wants to make a creation with only one color? All our balls of color now have bits of other colors in them. I'm just waiting until we have just one big tye dye ball. It will probably still look neat though. I would probably buy more of this for my kids. They really seemed to enjoy it.

This Playfoam product is packaged very cleverly and looks appealing with the dinosaur shapes. Initially, it intrigued my 5 year old and he said that is had "really awesome colors" but he soon lost interest.
Pros: Texture is fun, unique item, doesn't dry out or stick to things
Cons: Child plays with play dough 10 times longer because it's easier to shape into desired object

    Comments about Educational Insights Playfoam Dino Pals Themed Set:

    Play foam is one of my favorite 'crafty' toys for my kids. They can squish and mold yet it doesn't make a big mess all over. Their hands stay clean, and any stray foam pieces (which are rare) are easy to pick up.
    The Dino theme set is perfect for giving kids a jump start into how they can use and shape the foam into their own dino creatures! Plus it gives them lots of colors to play with, versus the ball sets which sometimes only have a few colors.
    This makes a great stocking stuffer or birthday gift!

      We recieved a free sample of Playfoam and it was a huge hit at our house. I love that it can be left out and doesn't dry out. My son loves all the creative uses. We have been playing dinosaur and using it as the terrain and foliage. We even use it for the dinosaurs to hatch out of. Perfect stocking stuffer for the holidays.

      Lots of Fun! Shapes are for Show, Only

        Comments about Educational Insights Playfoam Dino Pals Themed Set:

        I think if you understand that the shapes of the play foam that you buy will only last until your child starts to actually play with the toys, then you are going to be happy with the sets. The designs quickly go away because it's a product similar to play-doh in its concept, and therefore, meant to be squished, shaped and molded into something new. If your kids struggle to remember to put their designs away, that's a non-issue because this stuff won't dry out. I think it's a lot of fun and a great gift idea for birthday parties!

          These are super cute! They foam is SO not messy and easy to use. It does not get stuck on counters and table tops which is wonderful! The only slightly disappointing thing is that it only looks like dinosaurs when you first buy. After that all the colors just combine. The cool part is that this toy is ALL imagination and no batteries!

            Great for hours of entertainment for 2 & 4 year old boys. They love to take playfoam everywhere, in the car, at a restaurant or was even great on an airplane. It is not too messy but has endless amounts of fun. My boys like to put all the colors together and liked that the package was shaped like dinosaurs. Playfoam is easy to store and pack for travel. No real mess either. No smell and the colors are great.

              This was an awesome alternative to play clay or dough. We all had fun rolling it into balls and making shapes. It comes separated into dino shapes- but when you take them out of the package- they are no longer dinos. It is very easy to get the colors mixed up as the little balls are sticky. It also picks up lint, etc easily- though I feel like most of the doughs we have played with end up mixed up eventually. I think this is an activity we will use often- and plan to buy more.

                  We were given this product in return for a review. My kids ages 4 and 7 thought it was really cute and were eager to play with it. They enjoyed it for about 1/2 hour and then became bored and also frustrated that once combined it's practically impossible to separate the colors.

                    My son loved this Dino Pals play foam set. We had some of his other dinosaur toys out for him to play with along with this set and he had so much fun shaping the foam to play with his other toys. I think this toy is similar to play dough where it is more fun to add in some toys of your own to go with the them of the set. And I was pleased that clean up it simple with this. I actually need to pick up more of this because I could see this being a fun activity to get out when he has friends over as well.
