Totally Me! A Paint Your Own Tea Set By Toys R Us Product Review

For Christmas my nieces Laura and Thea gave me a Totally Me Tea set and recently Thea and I got it out and painted it! This is a fun product and the perfect gift/project for this crafty tea loving Aunt!
Toys R US sells this set on line for $11.99 and this is a fabulous deal!  This set includes everything you need except the newspaper to paint on. The box recommends 8+ but my Three year old Niece and I had a blast painting our own cups and I took on the tea pot, creamer and sugar.
As we painted I chose a simple line design in purple and Yellow, Thea liked to use as many colors as possible!
We both had a blast painting these and recommend this set to any tea and craft loving girl or adult! While it dried we had our weekly tea and now we have a keepsake tea set!

Looking For A Great Dough Recipe For Doll Play? This One is No Bake, White and Easy to Paint!

So I was talking with one of my readers who can not use oven baked clays due to a family members health and I remembered that there is a great no bake and easy to paint clay you can make and use for doll play!
Baking Soda and Cornstarch make a great dough that is totally white and easy to paint. It is a little more fragile to work with so not great for young children to play with roughly but for those who take great care of their things especially items they make check this recipe out!

image from

Things you will need:
Baking soda 1 cup
Cornstarch 1/2 cup
Water 1/2 cup

Sift baking soda and cornstarch, and put them in a saucepan. Add water, and mix well until smooth. Place the dough in saucepan on stove and cook on medium heat.Stir constantly. When the mixture starts to boil, lower the heat but keep stirring until it takes the form of a ball. Now, remove the pan from stove and let it cool enough to touch. Grease a plain surface with cooking oil and knead the dough on it.Then cover the dough with a damp cloth until completely cool. Store the dough in an air-tight plastic bag in refrigerator.Do not eat, freeze or bake. Let the items air dry for a day or so.Then paint and varnish.

Check out for a Organic Clay Recipe and Tutorial!
 I can not wait to see what you make with these clay recipes! So please send me a photo of your completed doll play items! As with all my posts we would love to hear from you so please leave me a comment here or email me at
