FWIW: not only is this stuff super-crumbly and hella messy, it also makes hardwood floors slippery as all hell. As proof of which, witness the complete feet-out-from-underneath wipeout my 4yo daughter had tonight.

If your kids get some of this headache-disguised-as-modelling-compound for giftmas, do yourselves a favour and throw it right in the trash.

Oh noes! I hope the only injury is her pride.

Though i will admit a brief chuckle at them mental image of cartoony windmilling arms + banana peel feet.

sorry to hear that, glad she's OK!

passing this on to family friends who have toddlers. seriously, don't they fucking test this stuff out before selling it? I mean, you can't anticipate everything, but it's not that hard to suss out "hella messy" and "slippery evil."

(still bitter with all kids' products because I spent the weekend before last putting together various toddler furniture and toys. it was fucking terrible, WHY DO THE MANUFACTURERS HATE CAREGIVERS?)
