Dear Mummy, at the beginning of the year we had an amazing amount of snow fall! I remember making snow angels and building snowmen. So we wanted to recreate the feeling of playing with snow (minus the cold and wetness) and we’ve found the perfect product!
Its called Floof. Almost like the real white fluffy stuff but minus the mess and we don’t need to wait for the weather to change. We originally saw this new toy at BlogOnToys this year and couldn’t wait to get our hands on this fun tactile material.
We were kindly sent two Floof kits to review, The Builder Set and the Mr and Mrs Snowman Building Kit. The builder set contains a play tray with 120 grams of Floof, two tools and a roller handle with two patterns.
The Snowman Kit contained 120g Floof as well as a play mat with a winter scene on. It would have been nice if the play mat had been slightly larger and made with a more durable material as opposed to laminated paper but it still worked ok. We had all the bits we needed to make two snowmen with 2 x hats, 2 x carrot noses, 2 x scarves, 2 x pairs of arms and lots of buttons to decorate. Watch us unbox and play with it!
The Floof was easily contained in the play tray, provided in the box, however we opted to play out of the tray as it was a bit easier! We found there wasn’t much room in the tray to roll and build and would probably be better suited for smaller little ones.
The Floof is really lightweight, almost weightless and so soft. The material was fluffy and stuck together in small bits and was mouldable too, we had fun squashing and digging and compress it into shapes. It was very different to other things we have tried before and the texture was like a cross between candy floss (without the stickiness) and marshmallows.
The Floof Builder Set is available for around £14.99 while the Snowman Builder Set is priced at £12.99. Floof is also available in smaller 40g tubs, a massive 240g bucket and a starter set too. Floof is suitable for ages 3 plus and available from Smyths Toys and all good toy retailers. So who needs real snow when you can play with fake snow in the comfort of your own home? I had such a fun time playing with Floof and it would make a great present for Christmas for kids!
Love Bella x
Disclosure: We were sent some Floof to play with, all out thoughts and snow creations are our own.

Ah man I would have been ALL OVER this as a kid. Don’t think my parents would have been impressed with all the mess I’d make though lol
It’s pretty cool stuff – even my folks got in on the action. It feels like nothing else!!
I can’t think of a better gift than this. It’s fun, festive, and it promotes creativity and imagination.
How cute for the little ones! Certainly looks like a fun toy to get kids this holiday season!
My daughter would absolutely love this and I’d not heard of it before! I’ll have to order her some for Christmas 🙂
This definitely looks like a fun toy for the little ones! Don’t have any ourselves but perhaps for the nieces and nephews!
Floof looks nice. I bet it would keep kids entertained for hours.
We’ve actually made sensory snow before and it’s super fun! My kids would love to play with Floof and make mini snowmen. Great gift idea too!
Oh wow this looks super cool, I’d have loved this when I was younger. Great fun for kids xx
I’d have liked this when I was younger! It’s a lot better than the slime craze at the moment (which has destroyed a carpet and several items of clothing in this household!) but I guess my children are a little old for this now 😦
I would have been all over this as a teacher!! What a fabulous activity. You can make a snow day on any day!

Floof sounds amazing and something I know both my kids would love especially if it does not snow at our place this year. Thanks for the lovely review and video share
Aw how fun is this?! My kids would seriously play with this all day! Bonus for me because I do not have to go out into the real cold snow 😉
Oh my gosh! That looks fantastic 🤩 I’d quite like to play with it myself. This would make a fab Christmas stocking filler I think.

I love the snowman set – we had the builders sets and the kids loved it at pre-school
Awe….this is the best! I used to do this with my littles!

I have seen a few of these snow type things in the shops lately and have been thinking about getting them for the kids, looks like so much fun
