Play-Doh Sweet Shoppe - Sundae Treats

Here's a bit of throwback post that I'd like to share with you. And because my daughter is soon turning five, I'm having a bit of "trip back to memory lane" moment now. Lol! 

When my daughter was 2 1/2 years old, she already knows how to navigate YouTube on my phone. What I'll do is key in the keywords in the search box and let her choose what she wants to watch. She's very familiar with words like alphabets, numbers, shapes, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Pocoyo, etc. And she knows what keyword to tap so she could watch the video she wants. And for some reason, she discovered Play-Doh, Surprise Eggs, and Shopkins through "related videos". 

Well, that's how my daughter's interest on Play-Doh grew. I guess, mommies here can relate to what I'm saying. You know, those videos of unboxing toys and their reviews, my daughter is really fascinated with those! I was actually wondering why she kept on watching Play-Doh videos over and over again, so I decided to watch with her. And in that moment I felt like a little girl too! *wide grin* 

So one day, knowing that it would make our daughter happy and we felt that she's old enough (at three) for clay, me and hubby decided to get one for her. 

And we bought her first Play-Doh ever, the Play-Doh's Sweet Shoppe - Sundae Treats.

Now this play set from Play-Doh's Sundae Shoppe collection pretty much consists of the basics. 

The big tub includes 4 fruit molds, 1 extruder, 2 cups, and 2 small cans of Play-Doh Brand Modeling Compound or Play-Doh clay in yellow and pink. 

We bought this at Toy Town Market! Market! for Php300 only. Not sure though if it still has the same price because we bought this two years ago. 

We also choose this set because we don't want to overwhelm our daughter with big ice cream or cupcake maker with tons of molds from Play-Doh. Instead, we'd like her to appreciate basic sets like this. Why? Because we'd like to see how her imagination would go a long way with clay tools or with any other toys. You see, it has always been "entertained AND educated" for me when it comes with my daughter's toys, so she could be creative, imaginative, and learn to innovate. 

True enough, she found a doughnut mold from one of her block's wheels. ^_^ 

Want a sundae that comes with a doughnut, anyone? ^_^
