Play-Doh: The Iconic Modelling Toy for Kids
Do you remember sitting beside a small table with your playmates, and each of you were trying to sculpt a masterpiece out of Play-Doh? Play-Doh has created wonderful memories of our childhood, and many people fondly remember what their first Play-Doh masterpieces are. This famous arts and crafts modelling toy is a great tool to harness a child’s creativity through fun playtime experiences.
The Origin of Play-Doh
Did you know that Play-Doh was originally created as a wallpaper cleaner back in the 1930s? The makers later discovered that their supposed “wallpaper cleaner” could be a great modelling compound. Fortunately, they re-designed it to be a plaything for kids. In the 1950s, it got re-worked and marketed as an educational toy – and thus the Play-Doh that we know today was born.
Play-Doh’s Original Colour
Less than a year from the time it was first sold as an off-white modelling compound, Play-Doh eventually branched out to multiple colours. It continues to expand and evolve into the rainbow modelling toy that we know and love.
Play-Doh Is Safe for Children (and Adults too)
Play-Doh is the modelling toy that is perfect for kids because of its non-toxic features. It doesn’t stain clothes and walls. You don’t need to worry much if you are a parent!
However, don’t think for a minute that Play-Doh is only for kids. When you buy Play-Doh, you may want to consider picking up an extra container or 2, because you might find yourself tempted by the stress-relieving fun that comes with squeezing, pressing, pulling, and kneading a great-smelling gob of Play-Doh. Just don’t be jealous if your child’s work of art is vastly superior to yours.
