As an Educational Insights Insider, we received this toy for review in our State-of-the-Art Toy Testing Facility here at Rock Father HQ (our house).

I've bought so much Playfoam over the years... in fact, it was the first product I ever purchased from an Educational Insights booth at the Chicago Toy & Game Fair some years back.

The kids love it, and my wife and I love it as well - a way to tap into much of the same creative play and artistic appeal as modeling clay or various "dough" products, but without the mess.

This particular set is fun, but the "undersea" vibes are really just a cool way to package it. Every parent that's ever purchased Playfoam knows that it NEVER stays separated by colors, and eventually it's all mixed together in a big ball... but that's totally fine. No matter what the shape, the kids love forming it into new creations over and over again.

My kids had fun with this for a couple days but it quickly got put aside and ignored. I think maybe the issue was that it wasn't as easily molded as Play-Doh? They had fun smushing all the colors into one rainbow colored mass, and then pushing the foam into the shapes of the packaging, but creating their own shapes didn't work as well. Overall they had fun but it didn't captivate them for long. We'll hold on to it and get it out again one day when they've forgotten about it but for our family it wasn't a huge hit.

    Comments about Educational Insights Playfoam Undersea Adventures Themed Set:

    My kids know I won't purchase Play-Doh because of the mess it makes. So when this arrived today and I told them they could open it and play, they were thrilled. They loved the texture (compared it to Rice Krispies) and that it stayed in the formation they set it. And cleanup was a breeze! Thanks to Educational Insights for the product in exchange for an honest review.

        Comments about Educational Insights Playfoam Undersea Adventures Themed Set:

        My kids have all enjoyed play foam at the library but I never knew where to get it before I saw the Undersea Adventures from Educational Insights. My two youngest immediately tore into it!

        Unfortunately they took and mixed all the colors before I could get a picture. Fortunately since they look like individual little balls, it looks just as cute mixed up! In fact it looks like it was designed that way because it blends so perfectly, unlike play doh that becomes a hot mess the instant you mix colors.

        Another bonus is that it's not as sticky and messy as play doh. Upon first touch I thought it felt sticky and just imagined it all stuck in my carpet right alongside the play doh that's been smashed in. However, your hands aren't left with sticky feeling and when you put it on something like the table, it is easily removed without leaving anything behind. I read after he fact that there is a no stick formula. It's genius!

        Last but not least, the vey best feature! It never dries out! No more wasted play doh. This stuff can't dry out so it never gets ruined. I will never go back again!

        The one downside which doesn't really concern me is my daughter tried to use her play doh molds to make things and it didn't work. However, cookie cutters do somewhat along with the rest of her play doh tools like rollers and scissors.

        The fact that it's an Undersea Adventures set seems pointless because it all gets mixed up and are just standard colors anyway. It makes for cute packaging but once you open it, bye bye undersea!

        My kids have always been fans of play doh while I have not, for all the aforementioned reasons. Now we have play foam which is the perfect alternative. Everyone wins! This set doesn't come with a whole lot but enough for the price. We will be definitely be adding to it!

            This is definitely a product for older children. Something about the texture made my 3 yr old want to try to put it in her mouth. The kids had fun playing with it, smushing it around into different shapes, but lost interest after about 10 minutes. The shapes it comes in are fun, but are impossible to recreate after the product has been played with.

              For my daughter's sixth birthday, we got her an aquarium. This was the perfect gift to go with her new pet! She had the best time creating new fish out of the foam. I would highly recommend Playfoam! Kids love it.

                My daughter is 5 yrs old and she completely had fun until she mixed the foam up, as a parents I was not a fan of the foam, hard to clean up, as she played the foam fell apart made a pretty big mess. Once she mixed the foam up she had no interest in playing so it was a one time deal and went straight to the garbage. I have a little one who's currently crawling, therefore it was not safe to keep due to that small pieces falling. I gave this 4 stars because it kept my little one entertained for a day and we probably would've kept it if it wasn't for the small pieces falling, unfortunately the vacuum did not pick up the pieces so I manually had to pick them up... Pain!

                  Comments about Educational Insights Playfoam Undersea Adventures Themed Set:

                  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 undersea and dinosaur 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 fish, stars, and eggs, 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.
