About

Play with happy hearts.

A giggly, fun way to develop their brilliant brains. And just play.

Squishy Dough was incorporated in 2014, but really started nearly a decade ago when my son was little. This little bundle of snuggles, laughs and giggles was not so full of joy when it was time to eat. He whined and yelled (ok screamed) at mealtime. Actually, he had a food aversion, and I couldn't wrap my head around it. Partly, because when I grew up, fresh air and farm fresh food was just how we rolled. I hadn't been prepared for this, and definitely didn't know what to do to change it. And his pediatrician really wanted me to change it.

But necessity is the mother of all invention, right? So, I started to play. And research.

I discovered that for some kiddos (my son), there's a relationship between messy play and a willingness to try new foods (textures). What in the what?!? (Did you know this??? I didn't)
So Pinterest is great, but I wasn't ready to break out the paints, rice, shaving cream and pasta every day. The amount of time it takes to setup, prep and cleanup is like 600 times longer than they actually play. #amiright

So I found play dough. Something I can get out, minimal mess, and pack away for tomorrow. Winning!
But the store bought stuff is just.... yuck. So time to make my own. The rest is a really boring story about finding and tweaking recipes and our pre-school teachers and friends LOVING my dough and wanting to pay me to make it for them. I'll spare you the details 'cause this is long already.
So yeah, with plenty of opportunities to experiment, my "picky eater" gradually transformed and was willing to try new foods (veggeis!!). Hooray!

In this shop, I offer a wide variety of scents, colors, and fun activities. So try it, and tell me what you think. Galaxy Dough is a favorite because it smells like a grape lollipop and has just the right glitters to mimic the night sky.
Squishy Dough gives kids a naturally fun way to learn, make silly faces and fill your hearts with happy. ❤️

Frequently asked questions
How long does the dough last?

We recommend replacing at around 6 months after purchase.

Many customers find it is still in excellent condition even after a year or more, but it will vary based on your location (humidity levels) and how often you use it.

What's in it?

Flour, salt, coconut oil, cream of tartar, food coloring and edible fragrance.
Non-toxic, Contains Wheat.

Edible fragrance? What's that?
We have different ways to make our dough smell amazing. We use a variety of sources, including: baking flavors, lip balm flavors and essential oils.
If you're not sure about a specific scent, ask us.

Every jar is labeled with its ingredients making gift giving easy.

Can you eat it?

No, it is for playing only, not eating.

Squishy Dough is made with all edible ingredients, however due to the salt content, it cannot be considered edible. And it tastes super gross.

Will it dry out?

It takes SO MUCH longer for this dough to dry out compared to store bought. But, If left uncovered, yes it will eventually dry out. The great news is that you can reconstitute dried dough with just water! We even give you instructions how to do it.

Each purchase comes with a Dough Care Card so that you can bring it back to squishable softness if it dries or stiffens.

Will it stain hands or homes?

Nope.

Mommy, can I have a snack?

Oh wait.... that's just an FAQ from my kiddos. :P

How long until it ships?

Most orders will be made, packaged and ready to ship within 3 -5 business days. Custom orders can take up to 7 business days.
We make dough all the time and most products are well stocked in our studio.

If you're unsure if your order will get to you in time, send us a message. We respond to all inquiries.

Allergen Info

CONTAINS
Wheat, Corn.

DOES NOT CONTAIN
Nuts, Dairy or Soy.
However, it is made in a facility that has all of those items so cross-contamination is possible.

Do you refund shipping overages?

Absolutely! I refund anything over $1. Every single time.

Etsy is great at figuring out shipping, but sometimes it works out cheaper once it goes to the scale, or we can use a Flat Rate Box for multiple items.
