This is a great clay set for kids. I purchased this kit for my 9 year old who is really into art and science and she loves it! It comes with 24 colors of clay that are packaged separately in their own little containers. It was easier to pick up than the mess that get's made with play doh because this clay doens' t dry out like the play doh does when left out. This modeling clay is non toxic and safe for pets and kids which is another reason I purchased it since I also have a 4 year old and dogs/cats at home too. My kids really like using this clay and mix the colors to create new ones. The best part of this product is watching them make their own creations and use their imaginations to play.
