What is it
The Mad Mattr® dough is a modelling compound with a difference; you can press it, mould it, knead it, stretch it, squeeze it, paint it, sculpt it, float it, sink it, or just pull it slow and watch it flow. Clean up is a breeze, since it sticks to itself and not to you, plus it never dries out no matter how long it is left out. So it can be used over and over again to provide endless, fun-filled hours of stretchy open-ended play.
The unique non-toxic formula is gluten-free, casein-free and wheat-free and available in 6 six colours that can be mixed together!

What our experts think
Our testers were eager to play with Mad Mattr and were intrigued by what it actually did. Their initial thoughts were that it was a sand, but they soon realised that they could manipulate it in a number of ways. The children made all sorts of shapes: we had a boulder family, dinosaurs, squares, an island… Mad Mattr really sparked the children’s imagination and they didn’t want to stop playing!
The product felt nice to the touch and was easy to tidy up as it stuck to itself. It has the softness and mould-ability of other play doughs (without the sticky texture) and the look and feel of kinetic sand, without the mess. We loved the fact that it didn’t dry out when left out and could be used again and again. Our testers didn’t realise they could mix the colours, but we really like that this is possible to do as it adds even more creative possibilities.
