  1. I get the alergen free part…. but why the hell does gluten free matter here(not that it ever really does) is that just the new buzz sails line “it’s gluten free”?! am I going to start seeing this on car adds next?! I won’t get it for my kids simply because I want them exposed to allergens and germs, also because it was created by some socialist liberal hippy in northern europe, and I won’t support that! Also, this world is in a deep economic crisis! We need to be putting all the scientific knowledge and intellect into figuring a way out of this crap with our socialism! I’m just surprised they didn’t call it I’sand… what a crock!

  2. Jamie’s right: “Gluten free” is a stupid description, as applied to this product! Gluten allergies are only from *INGESTING* gluten-based products –celiac disease– NOT from merely handling or breathing it, such as some people are highly allergic to merely inhaling little bits of nut powder!

    Many people aren’t even *allergic* to gluten, but choose gluten-free due to the fact that they no longer wish to eat wheat products, which cause weight gain in a lot of people: But the way everybody holds up their figurative crosses and breathe “gluten!” in terror, you’d think the stuff is radioactive…it’s just ridiculous!

    This looks kind of like a cool play-doh substitute, but without all the chemicals/colors found in play-doh, or the mess or drying-out problem: But I think it would be a bit frustrating if you’re trying to get it to stick in any kind of sculpture, as it just falls apart! But still, a very cool-looking product!

    • Actually, there are people who have an allergic reaction to just touching gluten. For a friend of mine, this started when she was going to school to become a chef. She is working now to become a marine biologist.

  3. before i read the “children sometimes put play doh into their mouths” thing I was thinking that they might as well go thew whole nine yards and say it is GMO free, cholesterol free, BPA free, USDA organic and fair labor.

    but seriously, will putting play doh in your mouth give a susceptible child a high enough dose to cause problems??

    • ”but seriously, will putting play doh in your mouth give a susceptible child a high enough dose to cause problems??”

      i mean are there published peer reviewed studies that prove it?

      • Hasbro, who make Play-Doh, say “Children who are allergic to wheat gluten may have an allergic reaction to this product.”http://www.hasbro.com/playdoh/en_AU/faq.cfm So, no peer-reviewed studies, but the people who make it and have a financial incentive for you to buy it say that if you kid’s wheat-allergic, this may not be for you.
