Don't Buy It Until We Try It: Lumi Dough

Posted: Updated:

Finding things to keep your kids busy is never easy. With short attention spans, parents and kids are always looking for that one toy they don't want to put down. Well, there may be a new product to occupy them all summer long. In this week's "Don't Buy It, Until We Try It," I tried out Lumi Dough.

Little hands are hard at work as the kids are creating their very own masterpiece.

"Kids love sensory play and there's so many options and there's no limits on what kind of play you can do with play dough," says Sarah Seay, Magic City Day Care Center Owner/Director.

To add a bit of a twist, we're going to find out if the Lumi Dough lights up playtime.

The kids were all ears as Miss Sarah explained the activity and opened up the box.

Each glow-in-the-dark set comes with five glowing colors and three star shape cut outs.

"I bet they could just play with it all day going in and out of the room, turning the lights off, seeing it glow and things like that," says Seay.

Within a matter of seconds, the bright colored dough was in their hands and the creativity started to stretch out.

Seay says, "I anticipate that its going to be a little bit slimier almost more like food that you would eat that would be my concern in it."

But, the texture of the magical silicon dough didn't stop the kids from making a mess.

You'll notice as the kids begin to shape the Lumi Dough, they struggle to work with it because of its firm texture.

It wasn't until after they had designed their creation that they realized the dough glows in the dark, which was big selling feature for the little artists.

So does the Lumi Dough earn a glowing review?

"It didn't move. It didn't stick together. It wouldn't smooth out. It didn't make shapes as well as play dough does," says Seay.

So, you're probably wondering what the kids thought of the Lumi Dough. They absolutely loved playing with it and were fascinated with the fact it glows in the dark. But, according to Miss Sarah, she would give it a few days before the kids would lose interest. Overall, it's a fun product that's kid recommended, but not parent approved.

So, this week's "Don't Buy It, Until We Try It," earns a thumbs down.
