How do I care for my Dough?
You can extend the shelf life of your Dough by playing with it often and following the steps listed below. Please note: When stored in high-heat, Dough can have the potential to mould. If your Dough becomes mouldy, discard immediately.

How old should my child be to play with Dough?
Because Dough can act as a choking hazard if swallowed, we recommend Dough for children 3+ and always with parental supervision.
Why the glass jars?
We think the world has enough plastic and we are committed to creating plastic-free products for children.
Unlike plastic (that can be recycled 2-3 times), glass can be recycled endlessly and does not leach harmful micro-plastics into the earth. To ensure your child's safety, please remove Dough from the glass jar before playtime.
Why don't you use artificial dyes or scents?
Artificial dyes and scents are derived from petroleum and have a large environmental footprint. These synthetic ingredients have also been linked to skin irritation and sensitivity.
Not only do plant-based colours and essential oils have a lower environmental footprint, but they are better for our bodies and create beautiful, natural hues and aromatic smells. We source our plant-based colours and essential oils from Canadian suppliers. All essential oils are properly diluted and safe for use in children under the age of 7.
What is Apple Leather?
Apple Leather is created using apple cores and skins that are leftover from the juicing industry. This up-cycled leather material is converted into a sustainable leather alternative that is free of animal byproducts and plastics. Our Apple Leather products are proudly made in Canada.
