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.

I love Desi Doll! These are so cute! We have the talking wooden puzzle that we are using to learn letters and some flashcards, but Yusuf LOVES playdough so maybe he’ll pick up the letters more if we have these 🙂 thank you for sharing – always helps to see more detailed photos of things.
I am sure he will love this if you get it!
This looks like so much fun and a great way to get kids interested in learning arabic!
I love play dough and one you learn with Arabic letter is so educational. Definitely only list of what to buy for my son!
So many ways to learn Arabic these days, it’s crazy ! Wish I had that when I was younger
Wow! This looks like a fun and learning activity for the kids. I think I should also look for some toys like these that Desi Doll is offering if they do something for boys as well.
They do do products that are for both girls and boys
Did you take the photos yourself? Wow! they are amazing
Yes I did thank you
This is soo cute! I’m starting a mommy and me class, will probably purchase one for the class too!
There is a ready to use clay-dough that can be shaped and then leave to dry dough. You can correct it after that if you want. In case your children wanted another level of fun dough making.
Thank you will look into it!
Well fozia, thanks for sharing , but can u plz share how to make a dough at home?
In sha Allah will do a post about it soon
Thank you so much for mentioning my blog post!
We loved this play dough set too 🙂
You are welcome!!
This is what I call fun learning ~ and its pleasing to see they are Arabic learning resources. Look forward to seeing more resources like these.
This looks like so much fun :O Forget about the kids i(aged 19) want this for myself 😀
I like that mold…creative learning….
Where can I find those toys in stock?!
Check the Desi Doll website. I think they do international shipping
Is there somewhere in the USA or California? I’m not going to spend 25 pounds for shipping on a 10 pound product 🙁
Best bet is probably to contact Desi Doll Company. They may have distributors there.
