Play Doh By Karen
Today Play Doh is more expensive than it used to be in 1956. Today a can costs about $1.50. A 24 pack costs about $14.99. A ten pack costs around $6.49. When Play Doh first originally came out it cost about $0.18. The price has changed so much over time. Play Doh usually makes the most money during Christmas.
The Beginning
When Play Doh was invented there was only 3 colors red,blue,and yellow. Today there is so many other colors that you can buy. Today there is over 36 colors. Hasbro (the Play Doh Owners today) had a poll to see what some favorite Play Doh colors were. The results said that some favorites were rose red, purple paradise, garden green, and blue lagoon.
Play Doh Food
Play Doh is non toxic so you can eat it but most people don't like that Play Doh makes food merchandise. They are afraid that their kid will eat Play Doh. Even though some people don't agree with Play Doh food the company still continues to make food products.
What Makes Play Doh Classic
I think that Play Doh is a classic toy because it was the first modeling clay that was non toxic and for kids. I was also very popular so it became a classic toy. Since Play Doh officially became a toy in 1956 and today is 2014 Play Doh is 58 years old.

Lots of people like the smell of play doh because they say it "smells like their childhood". I came up with a Play Doh perfume called the Play-Fume! It's a toy that makes you smell just like Play Doh. It will cost $30.00

non-toxic clay for their kids to play with. The

Doh food because they don't want their kids
to eat Play Doh even if it's non toxic.
