      The WOW Toys one looks amazing I can tell you that and I do already love their brand. The Vtech one is also really great, I bought it for my nephew. It’s a tough choice!

      Me too! There’s something about Play-Doh that looks so fun, it might be the sparkly cans that are drawing me in ha ha. Ooh that sounds great, there’s a great nail one in Wilko this year!
