50 Best Play-Doh Toys (from a Minimalist Mom)

There’s a lot out there, and maybe you’re wondering what are the best Play-Doh toys?

Well, I’m a big fan of Play-Doh, along with the accompanying toys.  Or tools as we call them in our home.

But I’m not a fan of clutter.  I just want the Play-Doh supplies that my kids will actually use!

So I’ve narrowed down the best Play-Doh tools I could find on Amazon.

I’m going to break this list up into three parts.

The first are the essentials.  It’s the Play-Doh, the hand tools, the shape cutters.

You get the idea.

The second part is all about the fancy gift sets.  If you’re present-hunting, one of these are your ticket.

The last section are the pieces I use to keep Play-Doh neat and organized in my home.

The Best Play-Doh Toys: The Essentials

Less is more is definitely something I live by.  I don’t like to have things around that aren’t being used.  

When it comes to Play-Doh, our Play-Doh drawer is mostly filled with Play-Doh cans and smaller hand tools like rollers, shape cutters and knives.  The kids really lean into these and use them the most!  

These are some of our favorite sets that get a ton of use!

I remember loving my own Pizza Hut set from the 90s. I mean, between that and Book It, I was basically a walking Pizza Hut ad.

These Play-Doh sets make great gifts!  They are highly engaging and a ton of fun!
