Have a Blast With Hasbro This Spring!



Over the last few years I have had the wonderful opportunity to partner with Hasbro Canada, and review many wonderful products. Once again, I have been sent some great products that I cannot wait to share with you! Each product appeals to either boys, girls or adults (or all three!) and will provide hours of entertainment, get conversations going, and imagination growing! 


Play-Doh Sweet Shoppe Frosting Fun Bakery:

What’s more fun than making delicious-looking PLAY-DOH treats? Making the pretend frosting to go with them! The FROSTING FUN BAKERY playset lets you shape a cake with PLAY-DOH compound. The softer, smoother texture of PLAY-DOH PLUS modeling compound makes it easier to squeeze so you can add beautiful flowers, stars and swirls to your creations! When you finish your pretend cake, set it on its stand so it can look like it belongs in a real bakery. Then smash it up and start all over! 

Playset comes with 2-piece extruder, shelf, tray, cake stand, turntable, display dome, 4 cake cutters, 4 extruder tips, cupcake liner, cake server, plate, plastic knife, fork, 2 two-ounce cans of PLAY-DOH modeling compound and 2 two-ounce cans of PLAY-DOH PLUS compound. 


Adult assembly required.

My Review:

Once again Hasbro has shown my family and I why they are one of our favorite toy manufacturers! With this most recent product review, all genders and ages are appealed to. While the products will appeal to fans of building blocks, play-doh, games and action toys, the biggest value to me was in the educational and developmental aspects of the toys.

Children will have their fine and large motor skills tested with each of these products as they roll and squish playdough, build Transformers and become an Angry Bird! But they will also learn the power of imagination, counting, color matching, science (color mixing, smelling, etc), cause and effect and more! Each item has created countless hours of fun, and even those products that are designed for slightly older children have been fun, with the right adaptations and supervision.

Each of these items will be perfect for gift ideas for all ages, and I am sure will be on the wish list for many children for summer fun time!

I highly recommend each of these items and give them all a thumbs up!

BUY IT: You can purchase all the above products at your favorite toy retailer from Hasbro Canada
