"Playfoam never dries out so the creativity never ends—and the secret, no-stick formula means you can take it anywhere for imaginative fun on the go!" Bought this for our two-year-old twin granddaughters (we were taken in by the display that promoted a tie-in with Jeopardy), planned to have it as a surprise for the girls to play with on 3-hour road trip. Made certain to keep it in the house until we departed, so heat wouldn't be a problem. In spite of our precautions, en route the Playfoam started crumbling, was basically unusable (the girls never actually got to play with it). Disappointing, would rate it "0" if that option were available.

Totally disappointing!

      Comments about Playfoam Combo 8-Pack - 8 per pack:

      This product was quite disappointing. The packaging is poor, once you take it off the cardboard there is no place to put it. The stuff comes apart in tiny pieces and it is quite difficult to put it back together. It was all over the place, and made a mess. Certainly doesn't come close to Play Dough. The photo on the back of the package is misleading as well. The photos shows the various colors uniformly mixed. The foam does not mix easily at all. It was exceedingly frustrating for our granddaughter.

      Not so non-stick

      By Joy

      from Charleston, SC

      About Me Parent Of Two Or More Children

      Comments about Playfoam Combo 8-Pack - 8 per pack:

      My son was very excited to play with this and I thought it was going to be great. No mess, not sticky, sounds like fun! And it was until I tried to clean it up. I cannot get the sticky residue from the glitter foam off of the table! I have used everything, even nail polish remover, and there is still a sticky layer that won't come off. Disappointing for sure!

          My daughter enjoyed playing with this. However, be warned. Unlike what the package says, this stuff sticks!! My daughter loves kitchen play and she used these as play food and put them in little cups and on plates. It stained the containers and I still can't get it out. Also, in still finding little beads everywhere in the house which is hard since I've for a crawling 8 month old. I would rather use play dough in its place.

                  Love this product! My 4.5yr old and my 2yr old love to play with it! We actually took it on a long plane ride and it worked great! Minimal mess with the same fun as playdough. The kids love hiding their toys in it, making shapes and pretending! Would definitely recommend this to all my friends!

                    This product is great because it doesn't smell and it doesn't leave sticky residue on one's hands. The downside is if you drop it on the rug, the item gets fuzzy. And once you mix the colors, there's no separating them. They're forever-mixed. Really little kids might mistake it for candy but age 4 and over should know better.

                    • Cartridge Types
                    • Ink & Toner Basics
                    • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
                    Cartridge Type
                    Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
                    Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
                    Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
                    Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.

                    Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
                    Material Liquid ink Dry powder
                    How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
                    Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
                    Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
                    Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
                    Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
