My daughter, like many young girls, loves craft activities, and that is what drew me to Crayola’s Fragrant Garden. Your little crafter can use the multiple packs of molding dough in the kit to create their own fragrant garden over and over again. Also included with the 10 packages of modeling dough are molds to help you create your petals, flowers and three garden creatures. You can display your flowery creations inside the vase, which is also included in the set.

To craft your bouquet you simply choose your colors of dough and lay them on the leaf molds. The center of the flower is created by pressing your dough through the center of the bloom. Sturdy stems can be attached for displaying in the vase. To make your garden critters simply press the dough into them and place them around your vase.

The dough is pliable and has a rubbery texture that is unique but easy to work with and mold. The dough also resists drying out quite well giving this toy great longevity. The quality of the dough molds and the display vase will stand up well to months of creative playtime.

Another unique feature of the kit is that half of the modeling dough is scented with unique fragrances that match the color of the dough. My daughter loved making the flowers with different scents of dough to create her own unique looking and smelling flower.

The Crayola Fragrant Garden is only one item in the expansive Model Magic line. You can purchase dough packs to craft vehicles, cakes, monsters and much more. Refill packs can also be purchased online so your child can keep having fun with this unique, fun and long lasting toy for a long time to come.

I would recommend this product for children in the 4-8 year old age range. It is easy for the younger kids to play with and understand and the older children will appreciate the creative challenge of this crafting toy.
