You're Never Too Old for Play-Doh: DIGGIN’ RIGS BUZZ SAW Playset

Disclosure: I received a sample product to help facilitate the review. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


We literally played with this set for over an hour-and-a-half today.
We has us some good old-fashioned fun!

Play-Doh has been sparking imaginations for years. I played with it when I was a kid, and all four of my children have played with it too. It is one of those toys that never gets old. Tonight, my son and I sat down at his little table and took out his brand new Play-Doh Diggin' Rigs Buzzsaw Playset. We literally played for over an hour-and-a-half, and you want to talk about a running imagination...my son's definitely got one, and I love it!


He laughs at my jokes. Have I mentioned how much I love this kid? ;)

This set comes with a detachable arm, two cutting blades (not to worry, they're plastic), an extruder rail, the truck with a cute little face, and four tubs of Play-Doh (that also double as construction signs). We truly had a good old time rolling and cutting logs to load up on the back end of the truck for delivery. My son and I had a great time making up elaborate scenarios for what we were doing and where the truck was going...and he even laughed at my jokes. That's really the reason I like to play with him, but don't tell anyone (kidding!).

Cutting the logs to load on the truck for delivery was not all fun and games.
Getting the cuts 'just right' was serious business too, as you can see. ;)

The busy work of cutting the logs was taken very seriously, and if a 'log' was not up to specifications, it was smooshed and redistributed through the saw blade. Uniformity was key, and 'the boss' was settling for nothing less than perfection.

We had such a good time playing, and it reminded me that the simpler things in life, really, really are the most grand. It also reminded me that you're never too old to have a good time with Play-Doh. ;)

You can learn more about this set and other Play-Doh items by visiting the Hasbro Toy Shop.

I bet most of us have good Play-Doh memories. Do you?

Ain't that the truth! I still love to squish Playdoh between my fingers. That stuff is fun!

My youngest has been banned from Playdoh :) He somehow manages to get every piece of dirt and hair into the Playdoh within a couple of minutes! My oldest loves it though!

So much fun. I hope every little kid gets playdough from Santa. My kids had some of the early versions....I think.... Oh I don't know, it was so long ago, I can't remember. LOL

I'd totally play with that. I know hubs and I would have fun and kiddo would join it. We actually play with trucks. We have them for Barbie and Monster High and we have a lot of small ones for the Lego people.

You are right... you are NEVER too old for play doh. I still like it. Not that I am artistic, but it is kind of a stress reliever to knead it. My Grandkids would love this.

Lady Lilith said...

This looks so cool. So true. We use play dough for a lot of different therapy and sensory activities.

I used to love Play Doh when I was little! But my sets weren't nearly as neat as this!

Heather @ Girl Gone Mom said...

I loved play-doh as a kid and my kids love it now. My husband looks at me funny when I sniff it...

That looks so fun... but I hate to admit I am anti play doh around here...
In our apartment, we got it all in the carpet... (gotta love apartment living) then since we are in our house, the table has these little grooves in it that makes play doh a no go. lol... but Broxton would have a BLAST :)

Finally I can sign into my google account and reply. My seven year old would love the play do but the dump truck would need to be pink for her interest play do is a very fun sensory learning toy to play with.

I remember playing with Playdoh when I was young. Back then it was just the little containers, so I get a kick out of seeing sets like this one.

My 8 year old loves to play with play dough and so does my 13 year old. I don't think you can be too old to squish and mold colorful dough, can you?
