PLAY-DOH Children’s Books Review & Giveaway

This review was made possible by Mom Spark Media. Thoughts are my own. I received PLAY-DOH books for the purpose of this review. Post contains affiliate links.


If there’s one thing I want my son to develop as a hobby, it’s reading. I remember when I was a kid, I loved reading my kid’s encyclopedia and even read the “For Parents” section of each topic so that I could understand the whole concept better. And I think that reading has helped me excel in my studies all throughout elementary, high school and college. So when I was given the opportunity to receive 5 PLAY-DOH children’s books, I jumped at it.

The five PLAY-DOH books I received are:

Mama’s Little Ducklings. One of Mama Duck’s eggs is on a roll! Where could it be?
My First Words. This book introduces young readers to a wonderful world of words with over 50 labeled illustrations!
Counting Bunnies. Ten silly bunnies teach kids to count from one to ten!
Making Shapes with Monkey. Monkey uses shapes to make all kinds of useful items for his friends.
Rainbow Butterflies. Butterflies in all the colors of the rainbow subtly hide for young readers to discover.


These PLAY-DOH books are published by Silver Dolphin Books, a publisher of high-quality, novelty, and activity-based books for children.

As you can see, my son and his best friend are loving it. They’re not always as interested in other books but these books captured their attention. I guess it’s because these books are very colorful and are able to bring the images to life with how vibrant they look. The books were able to clearly illustrate early learning concepts and I’m glad that such books exist that help little ones understand in an easy and fun way.

My favorite of all 5 books is “Mama’s Little Ducklings” because this particular one is not just the usual book. It has flaps that kids can open so they can reveal what’s inside.

Mama's Little Ducklings

And because these are all board books, I love that my son can’t just rip the pages off the books! I can’t tell you how many books he has destroyed because he loves ripping paper! I love that these can be passed on to other kids once he’s outgrown them. Here are photos of the other books:

  8. I love how and colorful the books are and hard for little ones to destroy! 🙂

  9. These books look wonderful, and I am about to start home schooling my daughter K4, she is a little behind and we’re not too sure if she is going to get into the local K-4 program due to limited spaces, so I need to make up a program myself to home school her. You would think that it would be easy, but not as easy when your child wants to run around trying new things. These would be wonderful.

  10. I would love to win because I think both of my sons would really enjoy them, they are both avid bookworms.
