One of our favorite ways to play is with modeling dough. There’s endless creative possibilities! TUTTI FRUTTI the natural scented modeling dough is uber popular in Canada (since 1992), and is finally hitting the American market! Their scented modeling dough features a unique, soft recipe that’s re-hydratable. Yep, that means if your dough begins to harden, just add a bit of water to the bottom of the container and seal it overnight. It will re-soften, saving you money!
TUTTI FRUTTI is also made of natural ingredients and has a salted taste that turns kids away from eating it. They have a variety of exciting fruity scents (16 in all) including: blueberry, strawberry, vanilla, banana, watermelon, orange, chocolate, cherry, green apple and more! These inviting scents awaken senses while the kids play – they will love it!
TUTTI FRUTTI provides wonderful benefits like fine motor skills, creativity and imagination, sensory play, eye-hand coordination, and social skills.
Want to make strawberry pancakes with whip cream? You can!

The party bucket includes a variety of tools and modeling dough to keep kids entertained for hours. Both of my boys absolutely love making, molding, and playing with their TUTTI FRUTTI scented modeling dough. And it’s really easy to clean up! Just use the provided tools, like the scraper, and blot the dough on loose pieces to pick them up. It’s great for indoor and outdoor play. I recommend using a plastic tray when outdoors to avoid getting the modeling dough and tools dirty.
