~The Invention Of Play-Doh~

5 years ago

*Image Is Not Mine*
Hey everybody ! Another kid-friendly concoction, Hasbro`s Play-Doh hit the marketplace after failing in its original intent to be a cleaning substance for wallpaper.

Created in 1956 (and patented in 1965) by Noah McVicker and Joseph McVicker, the brothers had initially cast aside their invention. Then, inspiration struck when a teacher casually mentioned her dissatisfaction with the hard, tough-to-shape clay her students used.

The soft, pliable wallpaper product began its new life when they offered to supply schools in the Cincinnati area with their squishy stuff. It was such a success that department stores took notice, leading to the formal branding and marketing of Play-Doh.
I used to love this stuff when I was a kid ! Thank goodness for accidents ! :) Have you ever played with Play-Duh ?
