ZDough is a silky play dough made of household ingredients with vibrant colors and natural scents that provides the perfect medium for people to explore with all of their senses. Young children love to squish their fingers in it, older children can spend hours sculpting and building with it, and adults will enjoy the rich scents and smooth texture.
It is an excellent tool for:
- young children to play, build fine motor skills, and explore their creativity
- adults looking to de-stress by keeping their hands busy while their minds wander
- teachers, occupational therapists, and art therapists
Unlike traditional play dough, each ZDough variety has its own scent. These come from the essential oils, spices and baking flavorings that add a new sensory experience to the fun of playing with the dough. It's perfect for young children who explore the world with all of their senses and adults who enjoy aromatherapy. Unscented versions are available by request. The vibrant colors are derived from intensely pigmented food coloring, giving ZDough a unique look that children gravitate to. I'm always creating new varieties and am happy to whip up a batch in whatever shade you need- just message me!
Each ZDough variety is available in a sleek metal tin with a clear window lid and will last for months when played with frequently and properly stored in the tin provided. That said, ZDough is chemical-free and does not last forever, especially if it sits on a shelf unused! Plan to play with your ZDough within a month of receiving it. Pre-orders, up to 3 months before a holiday or special event, are always welcome! If you're ordering ahead just specify the date by which you would like to receive your order in the Message to Seller section.
ZDough does not dry out nearly as easily as traditional play dough, but if it does become dry simply lay a damp cloth over the dough and then knead it until it springs back to its smooth consistency! In high heat and humidity the dough may become too soft. Simply pop it in the fridge for a half hour and then enjoy playing with your nice cool dough. Of course every ball of play dough does meet its end eventually, so when you've retired your dough please reuse the containers. They're excellent for storing supplies in your office, play room, classroom or kitchen.
ZDough is made from all food-grade ingredients: flour, water, salt, cream of tartar, oil, food coloring, essential oils, baking flavors, and spices. Despite this list of common household ingredients, ZDough is not meant to be eaten and can pose a choking risk for babies and children under 2 years. It is a great product for the young to the young at heart, but as with all toys, adult supervision is important for the littlest play dough enthusiasts.
If you'd like your ZDough to be dressed up and ready for its close up then this is the option for you! Whether you're giving a gift, having a themed party, or just looking to spread some cheer, a personalized gift set proves that the delight is in the details. Sets of three 8 oz. tins come in a white scalloped box. Fun Pack sets of six 2.5 oz. tins arrive in an adorable white gable box, while Party Favor sets of twelve 2.5 oz. tins nestle together in a sturdy white box. All of the boxes are hand-stamped and embellished with washi tape. If you have a preference for colors just let me know. The standard gift wrap colors are shown here but I have many options! Each set comes with a gift tag featuring your personal message. I'm also happy to stamp names, shapes, or monograms into the dough as well. Let me know what you'd like and I'm happy to work with you to design the perfect gift!
