How long does the sensory dough last?

Our sensory dough should last for between 3-6 months if stored in a cool, dark place in the airtight tin provided and handled regularly. The formation of salt crystals on the surface is completely normal, just give the dough a good knead and they will disappear again. Likewise, if your dough starts to dry out from age, or if it has been left out, kneading it well with a bit of oil should help to restore it again. Please note that there are no artificial preservatives in our play dough and it is made from natural ingredients. This means that the play dough can go off so please be sure to handle it regularly and be careful about keeping it cool when it's not in use.

What Is the sensory dough made from?

Our sensory dough is lovingly handmade using wheat flour, cream of tartar, salt, vegetable oil and water. Food colourings and flavourings are mostly used to colour and scent the play dough although in some cases natural dyes and scents, such as cocoa, coffee and herbs are used. If you have any allergies, please contact us using the form on the homepage.

How should I care for my wooden tools and accessories?

Dried sensory dough can be a pain to clean off your tools and accessories so try and wash them immediately after use. You can use warm, soapy water to clean them but they shouldn't be soaked in water or put in the dishwasher.

How should I store the sensory dough?

Our sensory dough should be stored in the airtight tin provided when not in use and kept in a cool, place out of direct sunlight. Please note that there are no artificial preservatives in our play dough and it is made from natural ingredients. Homemade play dough can go off so please be sure to handle it regularly and to keep it cool when not in use.

What age are your products designed for?

Delivery & returns

Can I customise my order?

All our products are handmade to order so there is some scope to customise items. Please get in touch via the contact form with your request before placing your order and we will do the best that we can to accommodate it.

Can I order bespoke products?

I am always happy to discuss new projects! If you would like to create something that is completely bespoke, please do get in touch via the contact form.

Can I place an order for a gift?

Of course! Just tick the “is this a gift?” box before adding the item to your basket. At the checkout you will be able to add a gift message and the recipient’s delivery address. The really clever bit is that you can buy multiple gifts for different people all at the same time so there is no need to checkout more than once.

How are the items packaged?

We have carefully chosen beautiful packaging that can be reused and recycled with no single use plastics in sight. Our play kits come in their own gift box, tied in paper raffia ribbon and look great on their own so there is no need for additional wrapping.

When will I receive my order?

Our turnaround times are 3 weeks as everything is handmade to order. Parcels will be shipped second class via Royal Mail or My Hermes depending on their weight. If you need anything in a rush, please contact us using the form on the homepage before placing your order to avoid disappointment.
