We won a competition with Desi Doll and the prize was the dough bucket. I had been considering purchasing it prior to winning, so was extremely pleased when I heard I had won it.
The girls of course immediately wanted to open it and have a go!
If your child is struggling with learning the Arabic letters then this could potentially help them learn through fun play. The girls loved using the dough to make the letters and we could talk about which letters were which. Munchkin already knows her Arabic letters but she still had fun playing with this. However this is ideal to help me teach Bee the letters when I do starting working on Arabic for the Quran with her.
Bee loved rolling out the dough and making the Arabic letters. She did struggle slightly with pressing down the shapes and then getting the letters out, but that was more to do with the fact she is impatient and then wants me to do it! We are working on that!
The tools are the right size for little hands and Bee enjoys using the rolling pin to roll out the dough and the knife.
What we loved about the Desi Doll bucket is that it is not just limited to the Arabic letters but you can make other shapes with all the tools included. The pots of dough themselves have animal shapes on the lids and the tools include making stars and hearts.
The dough comes in five colours and there is enough in each of the tubs for plenty of fun to be had. I wasn’t initially too sure about the smell of the dough but that eventually wore off. It will dry up if not put back in the tubs but then that is pretty standard for most play dough. Little ones may also find pushing the dough through the plunger a bit difficult as it does need a bit of force and effort, but this will help with co-ordination skills.
