Play-Doh Plus Color Set a great gift for kids

We love Play-Doh in our house, and this Play-doh is really special. Little Lady uses it in the cupcake maker and with other specialty Play-Doh tools, I love it because it’s super soft. It’s great for little hands that have a hard time with thicker Play-doh too.
