Playdough tools are useful in craft and construction activities. They also help with sensory and fine motor development. Playing with dough or clay can be useful for improving literacy, numeracy, and other skills. We stock items related to these areas which aren't playdough tools too.

Dough Tools was created in 2012 by Angela Starling when she left Wikia to look after her one-year old daughter. Angela and her husband, Tim, now have three young daughters who love playing with playdough. Before moving to Australia, Angela worked as an educational researcher for the National Foundation for Educational Research in England and Wales.

Dough Tools was originally a craft-subscription box company named Chalk Drop. Our focus on modelling materials came about when researching the educational benefits of playing with playdough and we changed our name to Dough Tools in 2016.

Dough Tools is located on the beautiful Central Coast of New South Wales in Australia. Our ABN is 89 939 809 086.
