My kids are ages 7 and 9 and are no longer impressed by cutesy products geared towards the younger crowd. However, that didn't stop me from picking up three bottles of Pampers Kandoo Moisturizing Hand Soap recently. They were on sale and I had coupons - enough said.

The colorful green and purple bottle is shaped like a frog, which is just too cute, even for my older kids. They both commented on the cool bottle and had no qualms about using a soap geared towards toddlers.

Here is what I like about this product:

It lasts a long time (at least 200+ pumps) and a little goes a long way. One full pump of soap is plenty for complete coverage.


The purple color of the foam is fun, even for a grownup like me. The reasoning behind the purple color is so that youngsters know when their hands are completely covered by the soap, thus ensuring clean hands.


The Funny Berry scent is pleasant and smells like grape - yum! I can detect just a hint of the scent after my hands are washed but the smell doesn't linger long enough for a scent-hound like me. I live by the motto, the stronger the better, but realize that not all children feel that way.


The best thing about this soap, in my opinion, is that my hands feel so soft and smooth after I use it. It's almost as good as some hand lotions that I use!



Okay, so there is one thing that I don't necessarily like about this foaming soap, which is that it can leave a mess, even by a grownup like me. The foam leaves purple spots on the sink and even on the walls and mirrors if my kids get a little too enthusiastic when lathering up. I often have to swipe up purple spots that get left behind. This isn't a deal-breaker for me, but I can imagine the frustration that some parents might feel when they have to continuously clean up after their little ones.

Even though I'm stocked up for about two weeks, I would buy this again if the price is right. On sale, it costs just as much as the regular hand soap that my family uses but lasts longer, especially compared to liquid (drippy) soap.

Lastly, in our antibacterial-obsessed society, this is a nice break from antibacterial soap. Many doctors and experts have recommended occasional breaks from antibacterial products so that we don't become immune to their good properties.

Effectiveness
It does a good cleaning job and leaves my hands feeling very soft and smooth.

Scent
The Funny Berry scent smells great - I just wish that it would last on my hands a little longer.

I bought this because it was on clearance, and paired with a coupon, it was super cheap.  I usually strive for the natural/organic soaps, or I make my own foaming hand soap.  But for as cheap as i payed, why not.  I thought it smelled very good, but the smell stays on your hands for a while.  Smells nice though.  It was green foamy and was very messy.  It left green spots all over the sink area.  It did wash off with water or a quick wipe, but with 3 boys who has time to clean the sink up after they wash their hands.  It also didnt foam up good all the time.  As it sat for a while on the sink, it would shoot out a straight stream of sopa, then foam up.  Most of the time you only need 1 pump to do the trick.  I would probably not buy this anymore even at clearance.  It would work good if you dilute it with water, but then how clean are peoples hands really getting?  I however will do this with this soap.

So great for kids!

By 

from Richmond VA

Comments about Pampers Kandoo Foaming Hand Soap:

When trying to convince a wiggly toddler to wash his hands, you need all the help you can get to make it a fun experience. Kids don't really care about getting rid of germs or dirt, so it needs to be about enjoyment! Fortunately, I came across this foaming soap and decided to give it a try. We had already had great luck with the Kandoo wipes, so I trusted the brand right from the start. My son loved the bright colors of the soap dispenser, and it was so easy to push down the pump that he was able to do it himself after the first few tries! He was excited about the way the soap bubbled and foamed, and he was very happy to wash his hands every time I asked. I definitely credit this soap with making hand washing a lot easier and more fun for my little boy!

Effectiveness
This soap does a wonderful job of cleaning little hands! The foam is so fluffy and gentle that it can get into all those nooks and crannies, but it also rinses off with ease. No sticky soap residue was every left on my son's hands.

Scent
The scent is nothing special, but it is pleasant and light.

Encourages hand washing

Comments about Pampers Kandoo Foaming Hand Soap:

I started buying this when my son was around 2 and a half, and now that he's four we still use it. I tried other adult type foam soaps, but he wanted the frogs one, that was colored, so we stuck with this brand. It is a great product to introduce young kids to the idea of hand washing without buying expensive soaps they will most likely waste. It comes in a cute container with a pump. Once my son learned how to use this on his own, he always insisted that he push the pump, and Mommy couldn't help. This is fine for independence, but does make a mess. The green foam is actually kind of cool and sometimes my older kids will grab a squirt or two. I think it's great that the foam is colored because kids don't realize they are cleaning their hands, but feel like they are playing with the foam in the water. The scent is nice too, and I feel the price is average for a kids product. I feel this is suitable for kids right up to about age 7 or 8, whatever works to get their hands clean!

Pampers Kandoo Foaming Handsoap - Can and does!

By 

from USA

Comments about Pampers Kandoo Foaming Hand Soap:

I am a great fan of any brand which can encourage my two sons to wash their hands more frequently than they do. This idea from Pampers is the perfect example.

Firstly, I like the packaging and design of this brand of foaming hand soap. The nozzle is slightly larger than your average squirty soap which makes the nozzle an easier target for little hands. The biggest novelty about Pampers Kandoo soap is that the foam is such an innovative, unusual color. My sons were so enamored with both the foam and the purple color that they did rather go crazy and the first batch did not last awfully long. It is a little more expensive than other, ordinary brands so I had to put a stop to this wasteful behavior quickly. My youngest son does suffer from dry skin and eczema and in spite of the fact that he tried to wash the enamel off my sink, he still didn't get any irritation or eczema breakouts. I also couldn't resist using it as I was so intrigued by the hand washing process. It left my hands silky soft and moisturized.

If it was just a little cheaper, I would buy it more frequently than I do.

My son loves the Kandoo foaming handsoap.  He is currently potty training and he loves to wash his hands each time he uses the potty.  This soap is easy to use, smells great and a little goes a long way.  His hands come out clean and smelling great!  Love this product.  The bottle lasts a long time too.

loving the kandoo foaming hand soap

By 

from Latonia, KY

Comments about Pampers Kandoo Foaming Hand Soap:

After trying the kandoo flushable wet wipes I decided to give the foaming hand soap a try and this too gets an A+++ in our household. the kid friendly frog, colors and overall look of the container is a huge hit with my daughter....She absolutely loves washing her hands now, she loves that it foams and that it is purple and smells great. this product promotes cleanliness and is a very good value. she feels like a real big girl washing her hands by herself with her very own soap. I have a much more positive opinion of pampaers kandoo products after trying this. She went from never wanting to wash her hands to know asking me to wash her hands, it is great and i would recommend to anyone who is in need of it

Very clever product!

By 

from Epworth, IA

Comments about Pampers Kandoo Foaming Hand Soap:

**Pampers had a really great idea when they came up with this colorful, foaming hand wash! When my toddlers are first potty training and learning the importance of good hand hygiene, this product leaves them WANTING to wash their hands after every bathroom experience, before eating food, and after coming in from playing outside. The colorful foam is a great treat for little kids, and it's even more exciting that it comes in different colors, so after we go through a bottle of this stuff we can switch it up to a new color for the next bottle. The product is just the right consistency, being thick enough to cling to little hands to make sure that it gets all the germs and ickies - but not so thick that it is hard to wash off after finishing the scrubbing phase. Overall I have been very pleased with this product, and although I would not spend the money on it past the first couple years of teaching hand washing to very young kids, I think it's a great use of money to get your kids excited and enthusiastic about hand washing when they are first learning this important hygienic skill. **

Pampers Kandoo makes handwashing fun!

By 

from Tucson, AZ

Comments about Pampers Kandoo Foaming Hand Soap:

I bought this soap on a whim...I had a coupon that made it a good price and decided to go with it!  I am not for spending extra money for kids items all teh time (the soap we use is good, so what is the difference, right?)  Well, I brought the soap home and put it in the kid's bathroom. I have to say, my daughter noticed it right away!  Is that for me, she asked?  I told her it was and she wanted to use it right then.  The foam soap came out green, which is super cool in a kid's mind.  So, she washed her hands. Thsi has kept her washing her hands more reguarly, and I have to admit, I have bought more since. 

The smell is nice, not too strong, but clean! Its easy to press out and my toddler has no problems doing it herself, which is what she wants anyways.

The best part is the color of the soap. It is even helping her learn!  She likes to paint and often gets paint all over her fingers, and I will hear her washing her hands in the bathroom, while saying Grenn (the soap color) and blue make...or green and black make...and taklking about whatever color is getting rinsed down the sink.  Its our own little science project.  I think I will continue to buy it!

Wonderful for Children of all Ages

By 

from Spring, TX

Comments about Pampers Kandoo Foaming Hand Soap:

"We have plenty of little children in our home... Our oldest is four and the youngest is one.  We are constantly looking for new and inventive ways to encourage proper hygiene in our house.  With all the germs and bacteria floating around these days it is almost impossible to keep your kids well.  Thanks to Kandoo, our children and friends can handle themselves quite independently in the bathroom.  The kids love washing with the Kandoo foam soap.  The green color allows the children to know if their hands are clean and ready to be dried.  My only complaint it too much soap comes out of the dispenser at a time....Sometimes my sink is green with wasted soap.  I know this is a learning process for toddlers and preschoolers, I just wish there was a way to dispense less soap in each push of the pump.  The prices are very reasonable and the product seems to last forever.  A great purchase and a must have for any parent with small children...especially when potty training.
