Play-Doh Max the Cement Mixer

When Hasbro makes a canister of Play-Doh, the company knows exactly what a child wants to do once they get that canister in their hands. A child likes to squish, stamp and cut Play-Doh into a variety of colorful designs. To help make all of that possible and still create a toy that offers a lot of fun options, Hasbro created the Play-Doh Max The Cement Mixer.

Max is a cement mixer that can turn Play-Doh into colorful play cement and then lay that cement out to be cut into different shapes. Max also has the ability to put out colorful shapes that can be made part of your child's next play road or sidewalk. Everything to do with this play set has a construction theme, and the idea is to allow kids to do all of the things with Play-Doh that they enjoy.

The only thing a parent needs to supply besides the Play-Doh Max The Cement Mixer is a clean, flat surface for a child to play on. With some imagination and plenty of different modeling clay colors, your child can create colorful and fun play concrete surfaces.

Basic Features of Max The Cement Mixer

The Play-Doh Max The Cement Mixer playset comes with Max, Play-Doh canisters designed to be construction safety markers and a stamper.

Max also has a design plate that can be used to pump out sticks of Play-Doh in various shapes. The stamper can be used to put fun designs on a flat piece of Play-Doh, and Max's roller does a great job at making sure that your modeling clay is nice and flat before you get started with your designs.

This is an indoor only toy and it is meant for children ages three years old and up. There are small parts in this playset that present choking hazards and that is why the manufacturer insists that parents follow the age recommendations when deciding whether or not this toy is right for their children.

The retail price set by the manufacturer for this toy is $27.00. Your online retailer may add costs such as applicable sales tax and shipping charges to your final purchase price.

You should check with your online retailer to determine if there is any kind of pricing discounts available for this product that would help to lower the price when you go to make your purchase.
