Playfoam® Pals™ Snowy Friends Make the Perfect Stocking Fillers!
It’s getting close to Christmas now and I’ve finally started my Christmas shopping! One thing I really love buying for B is the little stocking fillers. Today on the blog we’re reviewing Playfoam® Pals™ Snowy Friends from Learning Resources. If you’re looking for something fun to fill your kid’s stockings this year then read on. For more gift inspiration take a look at our round-up of STEM toys that your kids will love this Christmas! And don’t forget our full review of Botley™ the Coding Robot.
What are Playfoam® Pals™ Snowy Friends?
Playfoam Pals are cute collectibles, hidden inside squidgy Playfoam. We reviewed Playfoam earlier this year and B really enjoyed playing with it, as well as the collectibles. This new winter range introduces a whole new set of arctic friends to add to your collection. There are 13 winter friends to collect, with one, super-rare snowman!
You can see here that the Playfoam is packaged in little snowdome-shaped Pods. The collectible toy is hidden in the centre.
Let’s see what’s inside!
We got a cute reindeer and a little walrus.
Sensory fun with Playfoam
So what is Playfoam exactly? Well, let us explain.
Playfoam is squishy, non-sticky and non-toxic, and can be moulded into pretty much anything your imagination desires. We really like it because it isn’t messy. The balls cling together meaning your kids can create what they want, without the mess that you sometimes get with other sensory-based toys.
We used this new snowy-coloured Playfoam to make cozy nests and beds for our arctic friends. You can even create miniature igloos for them to hide in too! B really enjoyed doing this.
Playfoam is great for inspiring imaginations and pretend play. It creates endless opportunities for creativity. Build, squish, mould and mash your Playfoam into anything you want to. The age specification is 5 years and upwards, which I think makes sense given the tiny balls can be separated from each other. B is 5 and he’s really enjoyed playing with these new pods!
And a massive plus which I’ll say again – it isn’t messy. It squishes back together easily and leaves no sticky residue behind. The last thing I need is “stuff” squished into our new carpets!
Fill Your Stockings with the Playfoam Range This Christmas!
We reviewed the Playfoam® Pals™ Snowy Friends which are part of the larger Playfoam range. The regular Playfoam packs come with 12 cute animals to collect, with a super rare, gold one. The Playfoam comes in various different colours and you can also get glow in the dark Playfoam!
Overall we really enjoy playing with Playfoam. I’d say B prefers the actual Playfoam to the collectibles. He likes them but he much prefers to squish the foam and create whatever his imagination comes up with! If you’re looking for a stocking filler with a difference then pop some of these in!
