Letting the creative juices flow with Play-Doh Kitchen

The making of a little chef, using Play-Doh’s Kitchen Creations

How do you tell a toddler to avoid the kitchen while Mummy’s cooking, because it’s dangerous?

Well you can’t. It’s virtually impossible.

They don’t understand the dangers of hot pans. They are, after all, chocolate-seeking, cake-eating mess makers!

Hurrah then, for Play-Doh’s latest concoction – ‘Kitchen Creations Noodle Makin’ Mania’. Basically, shorthand for messy play, cooking-style.

As an ambassador for Hasbro, I am privy to their latest toys, and as a huge fan of Play-Doh, couldn’t want to put it to the test…

Little Chef

Let me say, this is a great distraction for toddlers (3+). It keeps idle hands occupied and encourages creative play at the same time. I think it might even inspire my son to enjoy cooking that bit more.

Did I mention that it’s a handy distraction for when you’re busy rustling up beans on toast, and need a few minutes alone in the kitchen?

And the ingredients are…

To the exciting bit – opening the box.Little Chef

It comes with the following:

  • five mini tubs of Play-Doh (beige being my favourite)
  • a sausage machine-type noodle maker
  • four noodle discs
  • a ravioli book-mould
  • lasagne cutter
  • bowl, plate, slicer, knife and rollefork

Oodles of Noodles!

I defy you not to end up going into your own world making fun shapes yourself. The joy of play-doh does not stop when you grow up!

On the side of the noodle maker there’s lots of fun items to make – from bunnies to rainbows. And if that doesn’t entertain enough, then try out the ravioli maker which my son couldn’t get enough of.

 

The noodle making machine can be a little tricky to master, but once you figure it out, it’s fun all the way. Squish in the play-doh, add the noodle filter and out comes strings of spaghetti, oodles of noodles and lashings of fettucini.

It’s good enough to eat… almost.

The only bugbear is that if you have a touch of OCD, then the play-doh colours can merge into each other a little when using the noodle maker. But hey, that’s half the fun, right?
