Flair Plasticine **REVIEW**

James adores craft activities and there is nothing much better to keep a child entertained on a rainy day stuck indoors than a day of crafts! I am in awe of James imagination and what he can create with a few simple objects and his own imagination.

So when we received a lovely bundle of Plasticine products for James to try out from Flair I knew he would be over the moon, it also brought back childhood memories for me! 
James immediately noticed the Ninja Turtle squidgems (no surprise as he is a huge ninja turtle fan!) and he was so excited at the possibility of creating his own ninja turtle.

The squidgems kit comes with the 2 colours of plasticine you require as well as thin cardboard accessories which you apply to the plasticine once you have moulded the body, head, arms etc to create all of the details such as eyes and weapons. Priced at just £1.49 these make great inexpensive activities or gifts for any ninja turtle fan. 
Also included in our plasticine bundle was this set of colourmax plasticine (rrp £2.99) which is a set of 24 tubes of plasticine in a wide variety of colours. Or if you are looking for slightly larger quantities of plasticine you can also purchase the Funtubulous set (rrp £6.99) which include 7 larger tubes of plasticine + 4 cutters. There are no instructions or limitations with plasticine which is what makes it so great! 

Here are some of the things James made with his plasticine (we used the colourmax and funtubulous plastice to create these) - 


For me Plasticine is one of those childhood toys that will never go out of fashion and even as an adult I had the urge to sit down with James and help him make little creatures. The great thing about plasticine is that it doesn't dry out either so your creations can be kept or reused later on to make something different without having to ever worry that the Plasticine will dry out and become unusable. 

We did find that one the colour's were mixed they were almost impossible to separate again however this didn't really bother James as he wanted to keep his models once they were made anyway.

If you want to find out more about Plasticine and the wide variety of products you can buy pop over to the Flair website here - www.flairplc.co.uk.

Do your kids or you love to create with plasticine too? What do your kids love to create?

  16. Play Doh seems to have overtaking Plasticine in recent years but I remember plasticine more from when I was little - and this set looks very tempting! My boys would love the turtle bits and it seems much stronger too than play doh i think! Definitely will look out for this x
