Review: Skwooshi Mixer Set

Half term seems so long ago, especially after our busy week this week but during half term we were stranded at home due to a poorly car and nonexistent public transport. So we found some activities for the little two to do as well as walks in the surrounding area. One activity that we tried and loved was the Skwooshi Mixer Set.

My children have always loved play dough, I used to make my own but found over time it went funny or would dry out too quickly. So when we were offered the chance to try out a product that is similar yet completely different we jumped at the chance.

So how did my children find the Skwooshi Mixer?

Skwooshi Review 1

They were amazed at the texture of the compound, loved stretching and molding them separately and together. They have come back to this product time and time again and I will be buying more colours to add to the original ones. You get yellow and blue plus the mixer in the pack we where sent which is a great starter but you really do need more colours to use this to its full.

Skwooshi Review 2

4/5 Great product, kids really enjoyed playing with it but with only 2 colours you can’t really see its full potential.

The Skwooshi Mixer Set is available in the art supplies of the Hobbycraft Store.

We received the Skwooshi Mixer Set to review. This was the only compensation received and all opinions are mine and my children’s.

    Looks interesting! We adore play dough, we make lots of it and have about 50 tubs of it but the texture looks really fun.

    The part that stuck with me from that is the no-mess bit! :) Seriously though great product, but you would think it came in more colours x

      There are other colours but only 2 come with the mixer. We need to invest in some more!

    My reception class would love this

    I tried it at Xmas in July and simply LOVED it. It will certainly give play dough a run for its money. x

    looks interesting, love anything with no mess lol

    Really like the fact that this is gluten and wheat free :) Looks fun, will last longer than home made and well thought out.

    F loves play dough so it would be gret to try an alternative. Would be good with more colours though x

    All the fun, but none of the mess! What a fun plaything!

    Sounds really worth checking out and I am totally overdue a Hobbycraft visit. I am intrigued that one minute it stretches and the next it flows. Does it turn into a liquid?

    Looks like a mixture between gloop and playdough. I have always been a fan of home made playdough

    We have some skwooshi which is fun although I do like making my own moon dough which is flour and baby oil and my boys love that too! x

    Oooh, I haven’t seen an activity like this before. I shall look out for it next time we’re in Hobbycraft.

    How have I never heard of this stuff before?
    My boys would LOVE it!

    This looks really interesting. My two love playdoh so I’m sure this would go down well. Would definitely be nice to see other colours too.

    I found a couple of samples of this today and had no idea what it was for……off to have some fun now!

    One reason I stopped buying playdoh was because of mess, especially on the carpet.It’s my 6 year old’s birthday next month so I’ll put this on her birthday list.

    Austin was badgering me for some of this the other day, when he saw it advertised on telly. I might just give it a try, especially if you can mix the colours together. Mine do that with Play-doh and it just ends up grey!

    This looks like a great product, I’ve not seen it before.

    It was the no mess bit that stuck out for me as well! We love playdough and this looks very interesting :)

  • http://www.belledubrighton.co.uk Lauren

    Ooh I love playdough/plasticine but at the moment my daughter would eat it! You’re right, 4 or more colours would be better!

    Looks like a lot of fun.
    I wonder if you can pick up some additional colours…
