Fun Polly Dots: A Cool Molding Toy!

fun polly dots

        I've seen this before when I first attended a Mommy Mundo Expo Kid 2013. But Rain was still too young to be playing with molding toys. But now that Rain is almost 3 years old, she loves loves loves playing with molding toys like Play Doh. I love Play Doh too. So much that it bothers me when Rain mixes all the colors together hahaha! Well, it's her Play Doh anyway)

        So anyway I'm getting off track again. Now that Rain is of age to play with molding toys, I finally bought her a pack of Fun Poly Dots during this year's Mommy Mundo Clearance sale!

        Poly Dots are basically little dots of foam that you can shape and mold and create stuff with. They are held together with some sticky substance that somehow doesn't stick to the skin. You can pull them apart, and squish them back together and it will hold in whatever shape you form them to.

        Its actually not recommended for kids below 4 years old. (Oh no! I'm a bad mom!) But in my defense, I always always supervise her when she plays this. Because they do look like candy. They remind me of the ice cream Dippin Dots, actually. Plus the colors are really attractive. So always supervise your toddlers when playing this. If for some reason you know you will be distracted, just give them a more age-appropriate toy.


Anyway, LET'S PLAY!

The sale package contains 7 pastel  colors. Of course she wanted me to open all!

        Close up. See the tiny sticky strings? They look like tiny melted marshmallows! They also won't stick to surfaces like clay so cleaning up is a breeze!

What I like about the Fun Polly Dots is that even if you mix the colors together...

        ... they will still look cute! Because the colors won't actually blend! Another thing I really like about it is you can leave it uncovered and it won't dry and it won't get stiff. Genius! I also love how light it is. It's almost as light as bubbles!

I combined pink and lavander. It's so Sofia the First!!! 

        And I'm sure you're wondering if it's non-toxic? Yes of course it is! It's also non-allergenic! Toys like these really have to be because kids like putting stuff in their mouth. Here are the other factors of Fun Poly Dots:

  • Contains no gluten, proteins, organic materials or other allergens
  • Contains no phthalates
  • Contains no latex
  • Conforms to ASTM D 4236
  • Contains no hazardous or toxic substances


        It's really cool to play with and it will really keep your kids busy. Not to mention it will exercise your child's creativity and imagination. 

        Here's what I created for Rain with Fun Polly Dots. This was before all the colors were mixed together haha! Let's face it. It's fun for parents too!:

And here's what Rain made on her own!:

Turns out, the cake was for one of her PinyPons. Apparently it was its birthday. Happy Birthday PinyPon! (No, I wasn't invited.) 


        A Fun Polly Dots block is 2.75 W x 4 H x 1.25 D inches. The box set of 7 usually costs around P700. But since it was the Mommy Mundo Clearance Sale, I only got this for P590 (I think? I'm sure it was 500+). And then he threw in another single color pack for free (which originally costs around P120) talk about big savings!

        The down side? Compared to clay, you can't really intricately shape it or make intricate details with it because they're made of tiny ball foams. (Although in the photo of the box, there are some very detailed creations there. It's actually harder than it looks) So pretty molds or cutters will be a challenge to use for this. But other than that, it's all good!
