i know it's only playing, but it's all brown now

The playdoh always ends up mixed here

maybe you should not buy more than one colour play do if it irritates you that much?

i presume you are joking, right?

MrsBadger Tue 27-Oct-09 12:41:35

I don't buy it

we make it one colour at a time

Playdoh as an invention, makes me roll my eyes, bloody awful stuff. My dd and suwoo's dcs managed to cover the floor in it within about twenty seconds yesterday.

I think it's one of those hideous toys that are sent to try us. If it bothers you that much, don't buy it.

YABU. Make one colour at a time if it stresses you so much.

I make my own and so doesn't really bother me if i have to throw it away

LOL! I used to hate that too.

carriedababi Tue 27-Oct-09 12:56:53

oh god i've got to clean the burger bar now

yeah yeaah, i know you all told me not to buy it.

ocd alertgrin

I bloody hate the fact that every shoe I own has a playdough stuck to the bottom. DD has also started transporting it to every room in the house, just incase a toy requires feeding, which inevitably means lumps trodden into the carpet in our RENTED house.
And as for that burger bar.....

Still love the smell though wink

It's meant to be a sludge grey colour

I'd be worried about a pre-schooler who kept colours separate, tbh...

Carrie with no1 I was OCD like that now dc3 who will be 3 soon,
just mixed it all up and she was enjoying herself,
dc1 came home and was shocked that I had let hergrin

carriedababi Tue 27-Oct-09 13:14:05

lol imagine dd when she gets to preschool


and lining all the colours up in a very neat row


i can't make my nice neat burgers now

carriedababi Tue 27-Oct-09 13:15:06

pmsl pumpkins, what did she say?.
did she do this shock


MmeGoblindt Tue 27-Oct-09 13:15:12

I don't buy it and don't allow anyone to buy it.

They have some at school and had it at Kindergarten.

Let someone else scrub the devils stuff off the soles of all the shoes in the house and try to get it out of the dog's fur.

I hate playdoh. And I hate it when i see all the colours mixed up. Becasue then it is basically ruined. Thats why we nerver had it at home, and if it was ever bought as a present, I exchanged it.
But it never worried me, becasue I knew that ds1(now at school), and ds2 has just started nursery, both of them 2.5 days, loved it and got their fix of it.
so not a problem.
if you hate it, send your kid to nursery and let them deal with the mixed up colours. grin
I did !!

LetThereBeRock Tue 27-Oct-09 13:16:57

Playdough is the most vile substance ever. Nursery playdough is anyway.

Pumpkinbummum Tue 27-Oct-09 13:20:17

I can't believe you let her do that was her exact words,
my response was
I know niether can I grin
I was very pleased with myself

carriedababi Tue 27-Oct-09 13:32:06

pumpkin, grin
how old is your dc1?
and does he/she have any other funny quirks?

Oblomov great idea.

Pumpkinbummum Tue 27-Oct-09 13:39:54

dd1 will be 9 in March, she just follows through in my OCDness, but she is still young enough to want to play with it with the youngers ones so is not impressed it isall a strange purply brown colour

Is purply a word hmm

carriedababi Tue 27-Oct-09 13:51:38

it is in my book.

thata is the non spelling non grammer book of excellence though grin

PuppyMonkey Tue 27-Oct-09 13:55:15

Playdough is banned in my house. Horrible, stinky messy stuff. And I don't care if my dds are psychologically disturbed from not having access to it.

PlumpkinScaryBaps Tue 27-Oct-09 13:57:55

No Playdoh in this house. It stinks and makes me want to barf.

Ergo, no sludgey-brown Playdoh related woes for me.


Although, there will be plasticine related woes in the not-too-distant future. So,a YANBU on the sludgey-brown front.

browntrout Tue 27-Oct-09 14:23:24

I entirely agree. My DD (2.10) does this and whilst I know she can't really be expected to keep them apart it does irritate me. However, same goes for all these craft/baking projects. EVERY time I have a mental picture of the two of us sitting at the table happily making leaf print pictures or baking fairy cakes and the reality is that within moments I am tense and moaning and saying, 'No, not like that. Shall I do it? Please let mummy help you. Look at all this mess. WILL YOU JUST GIVE IT TO ME!!'.
