Mold n Play Soap Creates a Slimy Mess in the Tub

by Theresa on October 24, 2009 · 0 comments

The Mold n Play Soap Set by Kid Kleen sure looks like a fun activity for kids in the bath.  Most kids love playing at bath time and also love Play Doh so this would naturally be a fun activity set for them. I actually first saw it as a bonus gift with the Bath Blizzard.  Surprisingly, according to the majority of parents, this has got to be one of the worst toys on the market!

Stay away from the Mold n Play Soap!

Actual Comments from Parents

  1. The tools are actually quite fun to use with play dough but not for the soap that comes with the set.
  2. The soap only molds really well when everything that touches it is completely dry which kind of defeats the purpose of using it in the tub.
  3. If you actually get the soap wet it becomes a big sticky, slimy mess.
  4. You have to scrape it off the tub, the toys and your kids hands.
  5. The soap sticks to the plastic molds so bad that you literally have to get out a knife to scrape it out.
  6. If you want to use the soap after it dries it won't mold at all.

Mold n Play is a complete nightmare for ALL parents a big dissapointment for kids. I honestly can't believe that this is still on the market with it being such a disaster. It really is a great idea but the darn soap just does not mold like shown in the infomercial. Well here's something fun for kids...it's called Grow a Heads. It really reminds me of the Chia Pet but this ones looks like you can have some fun with it by  dressing it up and personalizing it! How cute...
