Sensa-Dough Scented Playdough

There’s something about brightly colored and delightfully squishy dough that is just so much fun as a kid… (and actually as an adult too – as I’ve been reminded lately when playing with my almost-2-year-old!). And because this childhood favorite is also a very popular kids party activity,  I’m especially loving the fun, unique twist that etsy shop My Little Otter has introduced with their playful “Sensa-Dough“. You guessed it… SCENTED playdough!

With yummy scents like Easter Egg, Marshmallow, Graham Cracker, Birthday Cake, and more, plus 2 available sizes (2 oz & 4 oz),  this non-toxic dough is such a fun gift or party favor idea (for kids that are old enough to understand it’s still a toy, of course)! And this week at HWTM, My Little Otter is giving away TWO $50 Gift Certificates towards the Sensa-Dough of your choice… the winners can pick any combo they like!

See details on how to enter below (it’s easy!). P.S. I’m also thinking this would be a fun addition to Easter Baskets… something fun & sweet without all the sugar!

  11. carman young says:


  12. Yanneris Genao says:

    This Isn’t fair! How can I choose from all these delicious flavors. Btw, I would be the 29 year old, who doesn’t understand. Yes, I might be tempted to try it! Specially the blueberry flavor.

  13. katie says:

    Birthday cake!! Especially since my son’s birthday is this week!

  14. amyfisher says:

    My daughter and I would LOVE the marshmallow–her favorite!

  15. Ieesha says:

    The flavor of “Sensa-Dough”that i will most like to play with will be…all of them!! ^0^, But if i had to pick one I think Cotton Candy…i mean who dont love cotton candy? :0)

  16. blairwalpole says:

    Mmm….Birthday Cake or Marshmallow! YUM!

  17. scat says:

    Tangerine the citrus fresh smell.

  18. tabbygreek says:

    Ohh…cotton candy!!

  19. Danielle says:

    Mmm I would love to play with a combination of vanilla and tangerine for a creamsicle-scented squishy fun time!

  20. kathrynburgess says:

  21. krista lucas says:

    oooh, root beer or marshmallow!! :)

  22. Julie R says:


  23. Tracy says:

    The “Easter Egg” is a pretty color but I wonder what it smells like?!


    I am curious what “Easter Egg” could possibly smell like!

  25. I would love to play with “Birthday Cake”.

  26. Garda Agugliaro says:

    Playing with Sensa-Dough in tangerine would make me feel like I’m in FL picking the fruit from the trees. Love that smell! Plus it’s one of the fruits my little guy loves to eat.

  27. Lani says:

    I would love key lime

  28. Tammy says:

    Key lime all the way!

  29. Adelina says:

    Marshmallow for sure!

  33. Keshena Libbis says:

    They all sound so delicious it is hard to narrow it down to one! I think in the spirit of Easter coming up I will go with Easter Egg :)

  34. Tangerine?! That’s the best…the one thing I didn’t like about play-doh as a kid was the smell. If I could play with tangerine-scented dough, I probably wouldn’t get anything else done! :-) What a GREAT concept!

  35. Lynelle says:

    I’d love to smell the birthday cake flavor!

  36. keshenalibbis says:

    They all sound so delicious it is hard to narrow it down to just one! However in the spirit of Easter coming up I will have to go with Easter Egg :)

  37. Jennifer Lindauer says:

    I would love the birthday cake scented one!

  41. Jaime says:

    Oooh if I HAVE to choose only one then it would have to be Cotton Candy!! Nothing brings back childhood memories like Cotton Candy :o)

  43. Lyn says:

  61. Kathryn C says:

    My daughter would love Cotton Candy!! :)

  62. Amanda Webster says:

    cherry cordial and tangerine both sound like they would be fantastic!

  63. Sara says:

    That’s a tough decision… I think either Cotton Candy or Birthday Cake. But I also like the idea of playing with a s’more with Chocoloate, Marshmallow and Graham Cracker together.

  64. Jamie Litchfield says:

    I would love the play with the Marshmallow flavored Sensa-dough. Normal play dough has a sour smell and if it could smell like marshmallows I would probably play with it with my son more often.

  65. Deb says:

    I would feel *compelled* to try Graham Cracker WITH the Carrot Cake … as that’s the crust I use for my Carrot Cake Pie!

  106. Krystal says:

    Easter Egg is the perfect shade of the season!!

  107. Julie says:

    If I have to pick just one, I’d say Cotton Candy – it’s so festive and fun! But I’d also like to get my hands on some chocolate, marshmallow, and graham cracker all together – I bet that smells divine!
