Cammie Weeks, a mother of two, and her husband, Kip, started selling their handmade art supplies at farmers markets in 2008.

It began simply, as all good things do, with the molding dough recipe Cammie's mom made for her as a child. Cammie wanted to give her kids, Jack and Maggie, the opportunity to play, create and get messy, but she didn't want to have to worry about what's hidden in their art supplies.

So, after incorporating natural ingredients into the recipe, the dough was transformed into eco-dough. Rich in color, soft in texture and with a delicate aroma like no other. From there, eco-kids® evolved.

This family business lives by their mantra —"creative play the natural way." New products are developed with this belief in mind. From the ingredients to the unique packaging, eco-kids® works with environmentally friendly companies from around the United States to bring you fresh ideas in the world of art supplies.

Jack and Maggie test it all to make sure the art supplies are fun to play with. After all, that's what it's all about.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Eco-Dough:

      The Eco-Dough was for a niece's 2 y.o. son. Gave it to him at a family gathering, looked over to see how he was enjoying it, and there was his dad, canisters open and playing with the dough! That says it all. Appeals to grown-ups and toddlers alike. The feel and smell of it is truly amazing and superior to that known brand. You can tell it's a quality product.

              My almost 2 year old son loves this play dough. It has a great consistency, very soft and malleable, very moist and I really love the colors. I wish that instead of brown there was a pinkish/ red, but otherwise no complaints. We've only been using it for two days but I suspect it will last a while.

              I bought this for my two year old sons birthday. He's still a little young for the creative play but I wanted to introduce him to new textures. The only downside (which is an upside...) is that the dough smells good - so occasionally he tries to eat a piece (thank goodness it's non-toxic!)! But, it's nice having peace of mind that if he does - he'll be fine. Great product. Very happy!

                    My kids (2&3) have a designated basket with cookie cutters, rollers, stampers, and eco dough. They play with it ALL THE TIME, and are so creative with it. I cringed at paying so much for earth-friendly play dough the first time, but after 8 months of use (and abuse) I did not hesitate on ordering a new set. I love that it't not only eco-friendly, but its also made by a mom right here in Maine. I will buy more as gifts. Love it!!

                      great christmas present, was a total hit. played with the dough and i'm happy that its totally safe and non-toxic. feels great, not sticky at all, and colors are fun.

                      i love that you can just add olive oil if it dries out -- saves money in the long run, from not throwing out all those containers of play-doh!
