There are 3 colors of Moon Dough that come in the set. I highly recommend following the directions, handling a small ball of dough at a time and mushing it up yourself a bit before giving it to your child to play with. Otherwise, little bits of dough can create a bit of a mess.
Alex wanted to play with the white dough first. He stuffed it into the top of the barn,
cranked the handle back toward himself and then out the other way,
and before he knew it, he had an entire set of farm animals to play with. (By the way, when the animals are formed by the mold in the barn, the dough feels more like foam than dough. It's very neat.)
Alex played with his animals by putting them in the barn and even stuffing them into the silo that catches the overflow from the form on top of the barn. He absolutely loves his new Moon Dough and asks to play with it all the time.
