Comments about Playfoam Combo 20-Pack - 20 per pack:

Someone actually got this for me for me for Christmas because they know that I like to have fidget toys at my computer to play with while I'm working. I opened one pod and started playing with it, and it was pretty good.
After first opening it, it's kind of tough but easy to break into. However, I found that after just a few days, the foam balls start to shrink and it becomes much smaller than before. The balls also fall out constantly and it can make a big mess. Since there's very little actual slime in it, the balls dry up quickly and it becomes really grimy and not fun to play with. I started mixing pairs of foam pods together to keep the size and I opened a new pod about once a week.
Overall, it's pretty good for playing with while it's fresh. Just don't expect it to last very long.

My daughter likes to create things with it. It's great because it does not dry out or destroy your carpet. I am a kindergarten aide and we could use it to practice making letters.

    Comments about Playfoam Combo 20-Pack - 20 per pack:

    Immediately started finding balls everywhere. Our daughter has a stuffed bunny that she sleeps with every night. The balls were so entangled in the bunny's fur that we had to wash it overnight. The balls then got all in our washing machine and dryer, and over everything else that we washed. I am not one to write reviews, but wanted to warn other parents about this!

    We used this foam for a 2nd grade habitat project. It starts off strong molding into many different shapes (we were doing coral) but eventually falls apart or "wilts" . Still it was colorful and fun and worked in the end.

      We have an almost 3 year old - we bought this last night and it was a hit - not just with our Son but with us! It allows him to be creative, make things and we don't have to worry about it sticking to the rug, floor or us! Not sure what it's made of but it stays together and allows you to make things - we even added pipe cleaners and googly eyes to make bugs! Great product - wish we had found it sooner!

        My 4 year-old loves his Playfoam! We use it for everyday fun play and during our "learning time." My son is always excited to form the Playfoam into whatever we are currently learning about; letters, numbers, animals, etc. I recently purchased the 20 pack to use throughout the coming months. I will pack a few of the individual Playfoam packets to bring on an upcoming trip for hours of mess free, creative fun. Others will be saved to use as holiday stocking stuffers and for birthday party goodie bags. My only complaint is with the sparkle packs. The glitter does come off and is a hassle to clean, but I simply save those packs for outside play. I imagine they would be perfect for princess/fairy themed play.

          I purchased this item when it was listed on Zulily for my daughter's 4th birthday. It is amazing! She has now had it over 6 months and it is still going strong. She mixed all the colors into one big mound and uses it for so many different things. She makes animals out of it, pretends it is food for her dinosaurs, makes costumes for her dinosaurs, etc, etc, etc! We keep the big pile stored in a Tubberware bowl when she isn't using it but it gets used almost daily and still hasn't dried out. The colors have faded a lot, but she doesn't care and neither do it. She also has gotten it on the carpet and even stepped on it and squished it right in. It came right up. This is one of these best inventions ever!

            My 4 year old Loves PlayFoam. She loves the variety of colors. She likes to mold it into items, shapes and designs. She really loves mixing all the colors together.

            I love PlayFoam because if it is left out, it never dries up. PlayFoam does not stick to the furniture or clothing either. It has sparkles in it so make sure it is used in the play area or on a surface you can wipe because it will be decorated with sparkles :), but they wipe off.

            Cartridge Comparison Guide
            • 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.
            What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
            Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
            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.
