You can mold, stretch, and shape this clay-like compound, and it comes with four plastic tools that'll help you do just that.

How It Works
Flex-ohh is made by virtue of aqua-lock technology, and is also wheat- and gluten-free. This technology and the lack of gluten helps it stay moist for a long period of time, and also helps keep it from cracking. Hence, as long as you have some around, you'll always have a modeling compound that can be rolled, stretched, and flexed in a variety of ways without crumbling.
- Eight Shades
In each two-pound set of this modeling compound, you'll get eight different shades of compound, including black, white, purple, pink, red, yellow, orange and green. If you need a shade that you don't have, such as turquoise or brown, all you'll need to do is blend two or more other shades in order to create it.
Although you definitely shouldn't eat it on purpose, this modeling compound is non-toxic, so if you accidentally ingest a bit, it's unlikely that you'll need to go to the emergency room.
- Comes With Tools
With your Flex-ohh, you'll get four colorul tools that'll help you have fun with it and make unique things. All the tools are safe for kids five and up to use, as they're small and made of plastic. You'll get a knife that's sharp enough to cut the compound but not much else, a rolling pin, a stamping device, and a mold.
If you've made certain things with your Flex-ohh and are tired of playing with them, you can simply roll your compound back into one or more balls and use it to make new objects. It doesn't matter how much time has passed since you originally used it, because the compound will never go dry.
- For Boys and Girls
Since you can make virtually anything you want with this compound, and it comes in so many colors, it'll be equally appealing to school-age boys and girls. It'll make a great birthday gift for almost any child, and if you have a group of children coming over, it'll likely keep them busy and entertained all afternoon.
- Promotes Creativity
Besides having fun, kids will be able to develop and exercise their creative skills when deciding what things to make with their Flex-ohh. Using it may get them more interested in other artistic pursuits, and you may even discover a budding sculptor in the making. Kids can also develop their storytelling skills by having their newly-modeled objects interact.
- Makes Little Mess
Normally, clean-up won't be difficult after you use Flex-ohh. The substance won't easily flake off and stick to skin or clothing, so any children under your care will likely look just as clean as they did before they started using it. Any stray pieces of the compound can be quickly rolled up into one or more moist, sticky balls and stored anywhere, regardless of whether the room is warm or cool, for the next use.
- Not for Toddlers
Flex-ohh isn't safe for toddlers under the age of five to use. That means if you're taking care of toddlers along with older children who are busy with the compound, you'll need to find something else fun for the younger ones to do.
Play-Doh is another modeling compound that kids often have fun using, but unlike Flex-ohh, it won't stretch, and it tends to dry out fairly quickly if your cans aren't airtight. Plus, it smells quite foul, which is especially unpleasant if it ends up on your hands.
- Modeling Clay
Modeling clay doesn't smell as bad as Play-Doh, but it won't stretch either, and unlike Flex-ohh, you'll need to soften it up with your fingers a bit before making anything. You also need to be careful where you use clay, as it'll leave oily residue behind after resting on a surface.
With this or virtually any modeling compound, a blend of shades is almost impossible to reverse. Therefore, when blending shades, if you want to keep your original colors, too, it's best to blend just a bit of compound at a time.
- Keep Away From Pets
This modeling compound should be kept away from cats, dogs, or any other pets you have around, since they may think it's food and start eating it. Even though the compound is non-toxic, eating a huge hunk of it might make an animal ( or person, for that matter ) sick.
- Use Only as is
Flex-ohh is meant only to be used as is. It shouldn't be frozen, wet, heated, or otherwise altered, as this may change the compound's properites, making it not work as effectively as it originally did.
