PlayMais for mess-free fun for kids


It’s incredible what children will play with. Give them a toy, and they’ll play with the box. Or even the packaging material. And perhaps that’s where the inspiration for this craft toy originated.

This great new craft toy does remind me of the material used to pack fragile items for post. And just think how much children love playing with that stuff!



PlayMais is made out of corn starch, water and food colouring, so it’s safe and biodegradable. And even better, the kids don’t need to use any glue to stick it together, just a dab of water will do. The pieces can be cut and moulded, and it’s a great tactile way to craft.


The basic bucket contains more than five hundred pieces, instructions and accessories to create all sorts of interesting craft creatures. But designs are only limited by children’s imaginations – and there are some amazing examples of how PlayMais has been used.
