The Floof Zoo Babies Bucket is from Play Visions. What is Floof exactly? Well, it’s this magical stuff that is fun to play with. Technically it isn’t magical but it can be molded, squished and rolled. It’s like a really fluffy dough-like substance that is really great for sensory play. It’s for ages three years and older.
Included in the bucket
Inside the bucket you will find a good amount of Floof, three 3D zoo animal molds, a paw print roller and a roller handle. The roller snaps on the roller handle pretty easily. Even though it is easy to attach, it doesn’t come off the easiest either. Which is a good thing. I would rather not have to keep putting it back together while my son is playing with it. The animal molds come in two pieces and are also easy to use.
What does the Floof look like?
When we took it out of the bucket, it was in it’s own packaging. After we took it out and started breaking it apart and playing with it, my said, “It’s like a giant marshmallow!”. I have to agree with his assessment. As we were playing with it, we noticed a sweet scent coming from it too and he decided it even kind of smelled like a marshmallow. I don’t know if it really smelled like a marshmallow but it does have a sweet-like scent to it.
The texture is soft and smooth. When you pull it apart, it’s really fluffy!
The 3D Zoo Animals
As mentioned previously, the molds come in two pieces. The Floof is really easy to mold. Press Floof inside one of the animal halves. Then press Floof inside the other half. Fit the two pieces together afterward. You can then press in more Floof from the bottom opening after you put the molds together. Then you simply pull the mold pieces apart and you got your Floof animal! The Floof never sticks to the molds either. It’s actually the easiest substance we have ever molded.
Paw Print Roller
The Floof is non-sticky. Since it is non-sticky, the Floof may slide across the table top when using the roller on it. My son would have to kind of hold it in place on the table when running the roller over it. It wasn’t a big deal really. I actually don’t mind that at all anyway because I would rather it not stick to the table top, roller or molds. And it doesn’t stick at all. Hands may be a different story but I will get to that shortly.
Anyway, the paw print roller makes some really great paw prints in the Floof!
Firstly, Floof is non-sticky. That is huge for me. I don’t like things that stick to my table top. I like things that are easily cleaned up. Floof can be messy depending on the age of your kiddo and how they play with it. But it is very easy to clean up. I don’t know about cleaning it up off of carpets though because my son has been pretty good about not dropping any on the floor. On the table top or play area, all you have to do is use a chunk of the Floof and dab up the smaller pieces with it.
It doesn’t really stick to fingers or hands as long as your hands are clean and dry. Humidity and lotions can cause it to leave a bit of residue on hands and fingers. If that happens, all you have to do is wash hands and make sure they are completely dry. My son didn’t have any issues but I did at first. Of course I use daily lotion so after I washed my hands and dried them, I didn’t notice much residue at all.
Secondly, Floof is really easy to mold. It doesn’t matter if you use the animal molds or just mold something free handed. Thirdly, I love things like Floof because it’s great for sensory play. It’s also great for creative play as well. Lastly, the bucket can be used to store the Floof, molds and roller. Easy storage. It can be used over and over again too. The lid on the bucket stays on pretty tight and so far the Floof seems to be pretty long lasting!
We love Floof. Have your kids ever played with it before?
