Play dough is a great toy for toddler to preschool aged kids. Even elementary aged kids can have fun with it!

I love play doh because it lets kids get creative, develop fine motor skills, and generally keeps them occupied for our least 15 minutes.

We have shared DIY play dough recipes and our favorite play doh tools, but today I wanted to dive into some play dough kits that kids love and sets that make great gift ideas!

A note on gendering toys for small kids

I do want to say that I think it’s important that we don’t overly gender things – if a boy wants a princess play dough and a girl wants a construction set, who cares.

But, lots of you are asking for fun play doh sets for your son or grandsons, so I did want to specifically pull sets today that are more “boy” targeted.

I just want to be clear that I think that playing with play doh is for everyone and any of these sets will work with any kids!

With that out of the way, let’s dive into some of my favorite play doh toys!
