Darling Dough Company
Creativity with a conscience.
The Darling Dough Company is a Manitoba made modelling dough company.
Sustainably coloured, scented and packaged.
Good for the earth and good for your little darlings.
The Darling Dough Company was founded by Mom and Teacher, Missy Taylor (that's her in the mini-van), out of the desire to provide a safe, local and sustainable play dough option for her two young children to play with.
Growing up, she fondly remembers her grandma, whom they lovingly called Mama, fostering creativity and exploration in all her Little Darlings. Being a creative mind herself, Mama encouraged play in many ways, but Missy's favourite was when she would whip up a batch of homemade play dough for her to play with. What a treat!
Fast forward to today. After leaving her job as a Middle Years Teacher to stay at home with her two kids, Missy discovered a major gap in the options for kid-friendly play dough. Most of the options on the market were full of petroleum based products, synthetic ingredients and fragrance. She was looking for a safer, more sustainable option for her kids and figured, "Mama made it, why can't I". And so, The Darling Dough Company was created, with the inspiration of Mama, and her years of showering them with love, and providing them with endless experiences to create!
Sadly, Missy lost Mama this Spring in 2020, but she finds every time she makes a batch of dough she feels close to her; and every time she sees her Little Darlings, and yours, playing with Darling Dough it brings a smile to her face!
