Plasticine makes a great toy for kids who love to craft. We check out some of the current plasticine sets and you can discover what we thought in our review here. 

Plasticine, the original modelling clay brings back lovely childhood memories for young and old and never goes out of fashion.

We were recently sent some of the current plasticine sets on the market for the purpose of an honest review. We asked our On The Go reviewer Gemma and her children to check them out. Here is what she thought.

Playing with the Plasticine Sets 

Plasticine unlike over modelling clays and dough doesn't try out or shrink and can be used over and over again. 

On opening, the Plasticine needs to be squished and squashed to soften it up. The idea sheet also shows that you can mix two colours of Plasticine to make different colours on shades.

On seeing all the sets my nine year was over the moon with all the different colours available and cutting wait to start to playing with the tools. 

She decided her first project would be an Easter scene starting with a carrot, a bunny and basket of eggs. Before moving on to making large Easter eggs.

What We Thought of the plasticine Sets

Review Plasticine sets easter eggs

My daughter has not stopped playing with the Plasticine since we got it. She has loved that it is easy to mold and smooth into any shapes and has really enjoyed combining the colours to make new ones. 

I also have really playing with it nearly as much as her. I forgot how relaxing Plasticine could be and the fact that it never dries out is a big plus.

It is great to see that all the sets offering something different with the choices off lots of colours, extra tools and cutters or little tubs for those like me who like to keep the colours seperate. 

Best of all it has been lovely to see my daughter really enjoying a non screen activity especially as Plasticine holds some great memories from my childhood.
