It’s squishy, it’s super fun and it’s celebrating a big milestone birthday. That’s right, everyone’s favourite Play-Doh is celebrating the big 6-0!
You spent hours smashing, sculpting and mashing it as a child. And now, it’s your child’s turn. After its debut in 1956, PLAY-DOH quickly became a childhood staple. The play-time favourite inspires creative play, helps kids to build fine motor skills and brings out your child’s inner artist.
World Play-Doh Day, September 16th also happened to be the 60th anniversary of the playful product. What better to do on this special day than to pop open a yellow can and get creative with some Play-Doh, right?
We all grew up with the sculptable dough. And, we all have our own special memories of playing with it. Whether it was modelling fake food for your favourite doll’s tea party, pumping neon-hued hair out of wildly wacky (and crazy cute) toys or just rolling a rainbow of dough … you had a ball.
Now it’s your turn to sit back and watch your young child do the same. Or, do you? Why sit back when you can get in on the action? Celebrate World Play-Doh Day (or really, any day) and join in on the doughy play.
With celebrations going on around the world, make sure to share your Play-Doh memories with the hashtag #Playdoh60.
That’s right – share your pics of the kids creating their own Play-Doh mountains, animals, swirls, twirls and all kinds of other dough creations. Along with your child’s (and your own) day of play, people across the globe are also celebrating Play-Doh. How? There was a 60th celebration that featured 60 people all playing with Play-Doh at the same table (and, that’s got to be a pretty long table). The 60 people are ages 1 through 60 (to recognise each year of Play-Doh’s artsy existence), and each will be wearing a shirt that reads their age (such as, “I am 1”). Check it out!
And, you thought that your child’s playgroup took up too much play-time space. Um, 60 people – that’s a bit more than the five or six preschoolers that regularly drop by (rather, are dropped off) to take over your space.
