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