ZDough VS Play-Doh


Who doesn't love items that keep your child entertain and it's not the iPad. For me I enjoy when my children play with items where they have to use their imagination and creative play. ZDough really stole the show in this Side by Side. From it's amazing containers to the easy accessibility of the dough from the container. We can't say enough about ZDough. 

ZDough

About:  Scented handmade play dough, made out of food-grade ingredients: flour, water, salt, vegetable oil, cream of tarter, food coloring, essential oils, baking flavors, spices.  They come in vibrant colors and natural scents. The scents are the best part! I love that my hands don't smell after playing.  My favorite scents are pumpkin spice, eucalyptus and lavender.  
Price: $7.00 for an individual 8 oz tin. 
$20.00 for a pack of three 8 oz tins 
$20.00 for a six pack of 2.5 oz tins. 
Ease of Use: Easy and fun!! 
Looks: Comes in fun colors. You can have the ZDough personalized with your child's name, or whatever you would like, so when they open the box, it will be stamped with their name. 
Found At: Online at ZDough's Etsy Shop 
Quality: I love that it doesn't dry out as quickly as traditional play dough. You just have to put a damp cloth over the ZDouh when it becomes dry, I love the texture, it is smooth and silky. I didn't notice as much film on my hands as traditional play dough. 
Best Use: Playing for kids (and adults) of all ages! (What can I say...I still love playing with play dough) The texture is great for younger children, starting at 18 months, because they can squish it between their fingers.
