Play-Doh Mega Fun Factory

Play-Doh Mega Fun Factory

Fall 2010 Toys
Ages: 3 & Up
Manufacturer: Hasbro, Inc.
Price: $29.99

Play-Doh Mega Fun Factory comes with a conveyor belt and six cans of Play-Doh. The belt is battery operated and has two different wheels. One wheel has different candy shapes on it and the other has animal shapes. As the Play-Doh comes down the belt, you push the wheel into the Play-Doh to make each shape. Once made, the objects can be used for imaginary play. Our young testers made candies and toys and then set up a store to sell them. Each time they played with this toy, it fostered imaginative play lasting for about an hour. Play-Doh is also great for fine motor skills. Storage is easy, as the conveyor belt holds six cans of Play-Doh. Though not a must have, this is a fun and wholesome toy that children will enjoy.
