OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Here's a way to keep your Play-Doh creations from drying out: turn them into digital creations that will always be ready to play! That's how the Play-Doh Touch Shape to Life Studio works. Kids get a traditional Play-Doh experience using the tools and Play-Doh that come with the set, but they can also scan their creations into the free iOS Play-Doh Touch app to play with their creations whenever they want in the virtual Play-Doh Touch world.

The Shape to Life Studio comes with a Studio Platform, five digital character stampers, five digital action stampers, four tools, 15 cutters, seven cans of Play-Doh, and instructions.

Shape your own Play-Doh creation, place it on the platform, and use your smart device to scan the creation into the Play-Doh Touch app. Once scanned, you can play with your creation in the digital Play-Doh world. Use the action stampers to mold and scan objects into the app that will apply special effects to your creation, such as making your creation float in the sky like a balloon or have a dance party. As you move through the app, collect sparks of imagination and find Play-Doh cans so that you can mold and scan in different objects to serve as background in the app. You'll also be prompted to use the character stampers to mold and scan in new characters, and each digital character unlocks a unique world for kids to explore.

Is It Fun?

Play-Doh Touch is a fun new play experience for kids who like molding and playing with Play-Doh. Kids are really going to like seeing their Play-Doh creations come to life within the app. And as kids shape and scan their Play-Doh creations, their virtual Play-Doh world becomes more customized and enhanced. They can continue to change things up every time they play in the app, and kids will like seeing what happens when they experiment with the action stampers and use different colors. Though you can play with the app on its own for fun on the go, this toy is really about the connection between physical and digital play. It's not one or the other. It's a nice combination of real-world physical play with Play-Doh and digital play within the app, and both aspects of the play allow kids to get creative, which is what Play-Doh is all about.

Who It’s For

The Play-Doh Touch Shape to Life Studio is for ages 3 and up, while the app content is for ages 4 and up. This is going to be a fun new creation experience for kids who enjoy molding and playing with Play-Doh.
