I hated Moon Dough when I bought it.
I hated Moon Dough as I opened the package and gave it to my kids.
And then, I started to not hate Moon Dough. I actually started to like it.
Everyone despises Play-Doh for reasons known. I myself reviewed what a shitty product Aqua Sand was. Moon Sand was another horrid idea that I should have reviewed, and I figured Moon Dough was going to follow in their footsteps. I reluctantly bought it because it was one of four items on Spawn#3's Christmas list. How could I say no?
We got Moon Dough out and started making the popcorn. Amazingly enough, it was actually forming little popcorn nuggets that popped out of the maker. I assumed they'd fall apart when you touched them, like Moon Sand, but they held their shape. I still knew clean up would be a whore though- it's why everyone hates this stuff.
AND THEN SOMETHING AMAZING HAPPENED.
I'm not going to show you a picture of what the kids did to the carpet in their room, but I will tell you it was u-g-l-y. It was bad. But I'd rather savor my 30 minutes of quiet, kid-busy time then harass them about Moon Dough. I accepted my fate and got ready to scrape Moon Dough out of the carpet fibers- and the damn stuff doesn't stick. It wiped right up. And here's the other thing- it doesn't dry out. IT DOESN'T DRY OUT AND IT DOESN'T STICK TO THE CARPET. Play-Doh, Moon Dough is kicking your ass. Big time.
It's true, it's true. I love Moon Dough. You can't be as detailed with it as Play-Doh, but did you read that I said it doesn't stick to the carpet? I just vacuumed the dust right up. I still can't get over it. If you think Moon Dough not sticking to the carpet is nothing to be excited over, you are on the wrong blog and you need to quit judging me.
As always, this is not a paid advertisement or product review, because no one will give me anything. Whatever, companies. Whatever.
