Welcome to the wacky world of National Play-Doh Day! Get ready to roll, squish, and mold your way to fun and creativity. This special day celebrates the beloved modeling compound that has brought joy to both kids and adults for generations.
It's national play doh day on the 16th September.
Play-Doh has a fascinating history that dates back to the 1930s when a man named Noah McVicker created a wallpaper cleaner. Little did he know that his invention would eventually lead to the creation of the iconic toy we know today.
In the 1950s, McVicker's nephew, Joe McVicker, joined the family business and discovered that children were using their wallpaper cleaner to sculpt small figurines. Recognizing the potential, Joe and his brother-in-law, Bill Rhodenbaugh, decided to reformulate the cleaner into a non-toxic modeling clay for kids.
The name 'Play-Doh' was chosen, and the product was first sold in 1956. It quickly became a hit, capturing the imaginations of children worldwide. Since then, Play-Doh has expanded its range to include various colors, scents, and even licensed character sets.
On National Play-Doh Day, let your imagination run wild! Here are some ideas to make the most of this delightful day:
