Product Review: Polly Plastics

   I was given some Polly Plastics to review. It came with a ten ounce bottle of white beads. It also came with some colored beads so you can make different colors. There is a color chart that shows you the numbers to make the different colors.

   To begin, you will need some hot water that is above 150 degrees Fahrenheit. If your water boils, please make sure you let it cool down, you don't want to burn your fingers. You will also want to place some parchment paper or something similar to keep the plastic from sticking to other surfaces.

   Once your beads are in the hot water, they will start to turn clear and stick together.

   You can add in some color pellets when you put them into the water. It doesn't take many to color your beads. Here are two blues and two reds.

   Once your beads are hot and melted, you can knead the plastic to make the color you have chosen. You are now ready to mold your plastic. This does cool fairly quickly and will become hard to mold. If this happens, you can place it back into the hot water and then continue. Just be careful, if the plastic pieces touch each other in the hot water, they will stick.

   Once you are done with your creation, let it cool and it will become hard. Once it is completely cooled, you can drill it, paint it, use markers, Whatever you'd like. You can also get it warmed up again and make something else if you aren't happy with your finished product.

   This was so fun to play with! The kids love making their own little toys. It does take a bit of time and patience but it's a great way to keep your kids occupied for an afternoon. There are so many possibilities with all of the colors that came with it. I can't wait to play with them some more. If you have kids that enjoy play-doh, this is an excellent way to be able to keep their project for years to come. I highly recommend this for anyone that loves to create. You won't be sorry!
