Review - Nutty Putty

Crafty kids and creative grown-ups will love the new Nutty Putty for Christmas. Made from silicone, it’s a new modelling putty that you can mould into any shape you can imagine and then bake it in the oven for 10 minutes to create glossy, rubbery models that you can play with.
Nutty Putty is also fantastic to create your own Christmas decorations. It comes in bright inviting colours and your decorations will last for years to come.

Nutty Putty can be played with for hours. Non-drying, hypoallergenic and antibacterial the putty is soft and pliable for little hands to mould and it creates wonderful, brightly coloured models that kids can keep or squash down for more creativity. Kids favourite creations can be baked in the oven for 10 minutes, creating fun, rubbery models (similar in texture to silicone utensils) that can be played with, bounced, used as key rings, jewellery and much more.

We tried out Nutty Putty on a wet weekend and our young testers decided to make their own Club Penguin models completely on their own. We used a 6 colour set.

The girls were quite keen to get started and as there were two of them we decided to use the glass chopping boards from the kitchen to work on, but the set does include a playmat for this purpose.
The Nutty Putty is easy to work with and a lot less messy and crumbly than the homemade dough we usually play with.
There are some tools with the set but we also used some of our own tools so both girls could make their own models.

The girls were keen to follow the simple instruction sheet and did so without any adult help. They started off with a butterfly each and then spotted the penguin, this gave them the Club Penguin idea and they went on to make some puffles too!

We were surprised that we had no mess to clear away at all, this would encourage me to use the product again, sometimes the thought of the mess puts us off getting out this sort of activity so this is a big bonus!

One of the finished penguins! The girls went on to make more models, we did use up all of the Nutty Putty in one afternoon but they had lots of fun making the models. It was a no mess easy activity and one we would do again but we would give them a set each so they didn't have to share the colours and instructions.
We decided to bake the models following the instructions for 10 minutes and once cool they went on to play a game for the rest of the day with them. The Nutty Putty becomes rubbery when baked and the models held together despite being thrown around and played with.
We would recommend the Nutty Putty as a lovely gift idea this Christmas. Here are some of the baked models.
