bluedominoes Activity Dough Review and Giveaway


bluedominoes Activity Dough is organic, all natural. Gluten free, soy free and has a super long play life and to top it all off it’s made in the USA!! It’s also a winner of Dr. Toy's Best Picks for New Children's Products 2009 Award!

bluedominoes creates safe lead-free art supplies that children enjoy playing with and parents approve of. bluedominoes' Activity Dough is the first art supply product to receive approval from the Celiac Sprue and acceptance by the Feingold Association. Our playdough is gluten free, artificial color free, bromine free and heavy metal free. Have fun and play safely.




Here’s their story:

Why bluedominoes.com?
We created bluedominoes for probably the same reason you're here. We had difficulty finding solutions that worked and wanted to share our experiences to help others.
Why the name bluedominoes.com? bluedominoes believes that healing starts on the inside. With all the emphasis on the external environment, we didn't feel there was enough information about how our external choices impact our bodies, health, and mind. We wanted to go one step beyond thinking "green". Our focus became looking one step further, so we needed to find something that represented the extra step: on the colors in a rainbow, blue comes after green.
We incorporated the word dominoes to demonstrate how unique each of our paths to healing is and what works for one person may not work for another. Sometimes you will find you will share a similar path to other people and sometimes you will find you're off on your own path. This reminded us of the game dominoes in which players connect on certain squares and then sometimes veer off in different directions from one another.
This is how we view our personal paths to healing - some advice was the "right domino" that allowed us to remain healthy and other paths created "issues" and were not right for us. Further, some people even stack dominoes in a line and then knock the first domino over and watch the rest of the dominoes fall into place. This is also the mindset behind using the word dominoes because often times getting on the right path and seeing the domino effect leads us to breaking down those barriers; just as the initial domino caused the momentum to keep going and extend to the other domino blocks.
Some of the paths we've gone down have been extremely helpful while others have been costly and nonproductive. Our goal with bluedominoes it to layout options and enable you to select the path you believe is right for your child in a cost effective manner.
Even though bluedominoes.com is aimed at healing children, the information provided on this site is beneficial for all of us. While some of our family members thought they were already healthy, we found we all experienced better health when we implemented strategies in our homes. For more information about Debbie's personal triumph with her son Mark, read Mark's Story.

I was sent 2 packages of activity dough to sample for this review and when I got them I turned my son loose to be as creative as he wanted to and decided to bulid himself a robot that turned out super cute ( I wish I had picutres but my camera is broke at the moment  ) He spent quite a bit of time playing with this dough it really surprised me because we can’t get him to set that still and in one spot for any amount of time with him being a toddler. I was very impressed with the texture and smell of this dough it wasn’t much like the other dough on the market and didn’t have that smell I’m not sure how to describe it but I’ve never found it appealing. I would deffantly recommed this dough to anyone looking to give their child a fun and interactive toy to get their creative juices flowing.

Giveaway:

Bluedominoes has offered to give one of my readers a full five pack of activity dough for the creative child in your life!
