Play-Doh’s Birthday

This week on the Dullum File we observe the 50th birthday of Play-Doh.

To celebrate, the kids at Center Court Fitness daycare and I made some of our favorite stuff out of Play-Doh including a (blue) kangaroo and a pancake (in bright orange).  Our station artist, Mary Anne Muhonen, made a much more elaborate birthday cake out of Play-Doh for the 50th.         

According to Play-Doh’s web-site, a couple of the most frequently asked questions about Play-Doh are what’s in it and how do you get it out of carpeting?  The exact ingredients of the product are a secret.  But it is primarily a mixture of water, salt and flour.  It does not contain peanuts, peanut oil or any milk byproducts.  It does contain wheat.  To remove Play-Doh from carpets, do not use hot water or cleaning solutions of any kind.  Instead, allow it to dry completely and then loosen it with a stiff brush.  It may be necessary to vacuum clean or wash with gentle soap and cold water.

Now you know.

    I can think of no smell that is more pleasant than that of Play Dough. Did you know that you can make your own “play dough” out of flour, corn starch and food coloring? Well, you can. That smells pretty good, too.
