Hey Clay Animals
Hey Clay Animals is a clever fusion of spongy, stretchy modeling clay and an interactive animated app that will teach your child step by step how to make a herd of wacky animals. The brightly colored modeling clay is not sticky, yet the sculpted parts hold together well. The Hey Clay Animals app will give your artist step-by-step directions on how to build the animals, from the selection of clay color to what type of shape to make, and where to place it. These detailed, self-paced tutorials are all your child will need to produce professional-looking models. Once his clay creation has air-dried, it is ready for display or play. Hey Clay Animals encourages fine motor skills, spatial reasoning, and will inspire your budding professional clay artist.
The Hey Clay Animals app is available at the Apple App Store and Google Play. Use the activation code inside your set to unlock the instructions for free.
Clay is nontoxic, wheat- and gluten-free, and won't stick to hands or stain other objects. Makes Piggy, Horse, Cow, Doggie, Sheep, and Rabbit.
Our product preview team noted that Hey Clay often feels stiff and rubbery right out of the tub, but within a few minutes of working the clay, it assumes a smooth, truly delightful texture.
Note: During the air-drying process (about 24 hours) Hey Clay may leave a color residue on some surfaces. To avoid this, we recommend drying Hey Clay on a piece of plastic wrap, foil, white scrap paper, or another disposable surface.

”The girls had a blast creating all of their little friends. And they love it even more that they can actually PLAY with them. Their clay creations don’t have to sit on a shelf but can actually move into the doll house and suddenly its a farmhouse doll house.”Read the Review

”The open ended play of Hey Clay is another reason to love it. Plus, just like the Legos and the Plus Plus, this is great for read aloud and quiet play. It’s the perfect choice to have out at the table for the younger kids before dinner or after dinner.”Read the Review

”Hey Clay is modeling clay like nothing you have seen before. The kids sat down popped open the vibrant colors and they were transported into an online interactive art class within seconds.”Read the Review
Our 9 yr old really enjoyed this craft! The clay was easy to use (fun even for adults to squish!) and the online (have to download an app) directions for clear and unconfusing. I did take 1 star away for the durability of the animals made. While the clay is super easy to mold, the pieces (legs, headache etc) don’t stay well attached. Some glue may be required after the product dries. There was plenty of clay to make all pictured animals and plenty left over for other fun things!
I ordered this in March and didn’t get around to using it over the summer, I pulled it out at the beginning of the new school year(end of August) and it was all dried out, still stretchable though so we tried to build with it but nothing would stick together to make the character. I then realized That the clay must of dried out, maybe 2 of the 18 cans could be used to mold a shape together, everything else was dried and had to be thrown away. My daughter was so disappointed. Also I found the app (with the step by step instructions)to be very difficult to use, it would only let me build one character and wanted me to pay for everything else.
We are so sorry to hear about your disappointing experience! There are couple possibilities as to why your clay was so difficult, the first being that you received a defective set; if so, we would like to make that right and send another set your way! The other option is the clay is notoriously stiff and difficult until warmed up. As stated on our website, 'Our product preview team noted that Hey Clay often feels stiff and rubbery right out of the tub, but within a few minutes of working the clay, it assumes a smooth, truly delightful texture,' does this sound similar to your experience? If you would like to follow up with our customer service team at email@example.com, we would love to make this right for you! Thank you for taking the time to leave this review of your unpropitious experience!

This is a high quality clay set. Best of all, it has easy to follow direction to create little animals. Great for multiple ages!
This is our second Hey Clay! Set we have tried and I love them. The online instructions are easy to follow and the build are adorable. I love the light air clay because it is easy to work with and dries feeling a bit like foam. The first kit has led my daughter into much more challenging and interesting clay work so I got this kit in the hope that my son can experience some of that learning as well.
This comes with 18 cans of air dry clay. You have to download an app that contains step by step instructions to build cute clay animals. The clay then takes 24 hours to dry.
