The Majestic Light-up Olaf Play-doh Surprise Egg

While the boys did have fun behind the scenes of the Play-doh Disney Frozen Sparkle Snow Dome production, Feepy really was getting antsy for a chance to open another egg himself.

We had recently picked up some new surprises to review (some were awesome clearance finds!) so we loaded it with several things that we knew he’d love:
a Spider-man bobble-head, a Heroics minifigurine, a Kreo Transformers Micro-changer, a Hot Wheels blind bag, and a Lego minifigures Series 12 blind bag.  We decorated the bright-orange play-doh covered egg with a light-up Olaf Yazzle and some play-doh snowflakes.  We all thought it looked great.  Feepy declared it “majestic!”

He did a great job reviewing the toys on our YouTube channel. We thought it was really cute that he converted the Olaf Yazzle from play-doh egg decoration to an official “Toy Reviewer Badge.”

The majestic light-up Olaf play-doh  surprise egg was fairly inexpensive to create, especially for the amount of prizes.  Including all items, the egg came in around $14.  Now, mom tends to shy away from a lot of clutter, but the boys really do love trinkets.  Feepy is working on a few small collections, and both boys always have a treasure in their hands.  In fact, we kept the little one busy throughout the video shoot set-up with a small surprise egg filled with his two current favorite Sickbricks and the bouncy ball he had gotten from the dentist earlier in the day.  He took the egg with him for bedtime.

It’s no surprise now that our boys love the egg fun. Since a $14 dollar surprise is not a practical everyday eggs-travaganza, we are  incorporating surprise eggs in some other free to no-cost ways at home.  We’ll be sharing those ideas with you soon!

Play-Doh Frozen Sparkle Snow Dome

We’re really starting to have fun behind the scenes of our Youtube channel production. Planning the toy review line-up and finding ways to incorporate various toys and themes together is quickly becoming the best part of our new family endeavor. We’re hoping our excitement to play with all of the cool toys shows. Let us know what you think!

For our first big Frozen toy review, we made a frozen surprise egg to jazz up the Play-Doh Disney frozen sparkle snow dome. We put the Play-doh set Queen Elsa and Princess Anna figurines into the egg, along with a Minnie Mouse bubble necklace and two blind bags. We covered the egg in bright pink dough which really popped on camera. We decided to try something new by sticking a Yazzle blinking sticker badge to the egg. Initially we were worried that the camera might not respond well to the blinking light, but a quick test showed it was doable. Awesome! Then we pressed out some Play-doh snowflakes using the press from the set to finish decorating the surprise egg.

Next, for the most challenging part of the set-up, modeling Sven and Olaf. The Play-doh Disney frozen sparkle snow dome comes with very detailed instruction on how to make the two Frozen friends, but the tricky part is getting all of the little dough balls to stick together and making the final product stand up. Sven is created using a very small tub of brown play-doh. It was difficult to piece him together solidly enough to hold up the large plastic antlers that come in the set, and we couldn’t quite make his ears stand out sideways like they should. Olaf was a simple build, but we opted to use our own white Play-doh. The kit includes one can of special, sparkle white Play-doh, but we wanted to save that to create our snow scene and ice castle. Once the guys were modeled, we added them to the toy review set. Here we go!

We really like to start the YouTube videos with an egg surprise! Out came Elsa & Anna, the Minnie Mouse bubble necklace, and the blind bags. Inside the Littlest Pet Shop bag was an adorable pig with a flower to attach to its head and a little basket. Inside the Hello Kitty blind bag was a ballerina kitty doing a cute curtsy. Blind bag figurines are always so cute!

We tested all of the basic functions of the play doh sparkle snow dome. First we spread some sparkle white dough on the base. Then we pressed some dough through the ice castle tool. It took quite a bit of pressure to force the dough through. The dough comes out looking like spaghetti. We think a star shape or something that has more of an ice crystal shape would have made a prettier design. We added some trees and snowflakes using dough and cutters from the kit. Then we placed Elsa, Anna, Sven, and Olaf, covered the scene with the dome, and admired the magical scene. Minnie Mouse acted as Mother Nature, and a blizzard hit Arendelle. The bubble necklace made nice small bubbles to complete our winter wonderland play fun. dome. Olaf was imagining Summertime, though…

Crazy Weekend Giveaway 2

Play-Doh Marvel Can-Heads Featuring Spider-Man and Green Goblin

Play-doh Marvel Can-heads Spider-man & Green Goblin set is an excellent add-on to the Can-heads collection.  Right out of the box, the Spider-man is a fun action figure because he comes with a little blue sword.  The Spidey can is filled with blue play-doh for modeling spiders from the mold under his foot-base attachment.  Our little one was immediately in love with this particular can-head, and the mold was relatively easy for him to do.

The Green Goblin features green play-doh and a cool gold base, perfect for hovering and flying maneuvers.  His molds include a jack-o-lantern on the foot-base, as well as a hornet, a sword, and a belt on the gold base.

For some reason, the play-doh in this set seemed stickier than usual, and it took a good while of playtime for it to be molded easily.  We joined the two super heroes with the other set in our collection, Smashdown Hulk with Ironman for a great day filled with play-doh fun.  The Marvel Can-heads by play-doh are fun for the entire family.

Play-Doh Surprise Egg 1

We’re unwrapping a custom coral reef Play-doh egg filled with a wonderful surprise!

Be sure to subscribe to our youtube channel!

We love watching Youtube creators open hand-crafted Play-doh eggs, and we were so anxious to try making our own.  We decided to go with a coral reef theme to match the fun contents of the surprise inside the egg.  First we rolled out the aqua dough and applied it to the plastic egg.  Then we rolled, cut, and applied the coral, the goldfish, and the purple octopus.  Very pretty!

Our little one was on stand-by for the reveal.  He snatched the goldfish right away.  Inside the surprise Play-doh egg was a Lego Friends building toy.  It was the Seal’s Little Rock from series 6.  Again, our little one kept occupied with the Lego seal and Lego fish figurines while mom started the build.  The instructions for this set were very clear, and it was a quick assembly.  The final display is an adorable seal with a bow on her head.  She has various platforms surrounded by pink flowers.  She also has a see-saw and yellow ball for play, and a fish for play or training incentive.

Let us know if you like to see custom Play-doh eggs.  We’re excited to make more!  There are some really cool ones here:  DCTC link.

Play-Doh Smashdown Hulk

Play-doh Can-heads Smashdown Hulk with bonus Ironman play set is one of the most fun and interactive play-doh toys we’ve ever tried.  The set features and Incredible Hulk action figure with five built-in molds: a jet, a tank, a wheel, and two bricks.  Hulk’s head is a can of green play-doh.  Hulk’s arms smash down when the can-head is depressed.  The arms move well, and it is easy to crush the play-doh creations.

The Ironman can-head is a smaller companion toy with blue play-doh and fewer features, but the one stamp under his feet is an awesome fire blaster.  It was simple to create a very clean mold that kept all of the details intact.

The action figures, alone, kept the kids busy while mom had fun trying out all the molds.  We really like the bricks, as they’re easy to mass produce quickly for Hulk to smash.

We spent hours playing with this toy right out of the box, and we look forward to playing with this toy in combination with other can-heads in the series, especially Spider-man.  We really appreciate Marvel super hero toys that are appropriate for little ones.  They allow creative play battles that are innocent and non-violent, but still incorporate popular action figures doing fun stunts.

Stay tuned for our next can-head unboxing review:  Spider-man & Green Goblin.
