The History of Play-Doh
Invented in the mid 1950s Play-Doh was originally formulated to be wallpaper cleaner. Due to its similarity to modeling clay and the fact that it was non-toxic, the creator Joe McVicker decided to market it as a toy for preschoolers. Originally it was only available in off-white and by 1957 it also came in yellow, red and blue. The original company created by Joe McVicker was called Rainbow Crafts. It has changed hands several times throughout the years but Play-doh is currently owned and produced by the Playskool division of Hasbro.
Play-doh now entertains many people of all ages with fun colors, toys and accessories. Over seven hundred million pounds of Play-Doh have been sold to date.
