EcoMom Review & Giveaway

I'm like most of you out there. I want to do my part to help make the planet better. But I fall short, a lot. So when I find a company that has wonderful green products I will always give them a chance.

I was given the opportunity for the kids to try out some Clementine Art Organic Play Dough from EcoMom (also known as SproutBaby).Gracie was super excited. Anything crafty is her thing.She gets that from mommy.

This handmade, organic, soft dough contains six, 4 oz scented tubs: lemon, orange, key lime, blueberry, strawberry and grape.

The kit also contains two patterned rolling pins, a hammer and a roller cutter. The folks at Clementine Art Studio in Boulder are the geniuses behind this groovy art kit.

Why We (ecomom) Like This:

Kids love them because they are so cool, moms love them because they are safe and the sleek, reusable minimalist packaging rocks.

Why MY family likes this:
The smell is amazing, fresh fruity scents. Although I will say I like the smell of regular playdough. Something about it takes me back to my younger years. :) Anyways, I really liked the smell. Gracie wasn't impressed, it was all about the play for her. All I could get out of Rob was 'it's interesting' whatever that means.

It's not messy. We did have one small problem with the pink color. I don't know what happened, it was the only one. And of course Gracie being all girl this was highly upsetting. She is still mad it was too squishy and unusable. The rest were great and we've had lots of fun with those.

And then there is the organic part. It's awesome that you can find toys that are really safe for your kids. Non-toxic all the way. Matthew is still at that stage where he puts a lot in his mouth, so even though I'm not going to let him eat it...I don't have to be in that crazy, frantic rush to get it out of his mouth.

Overall EcoMom receives a big thumbs up from us!
