About this deal
Play-Doh (also known as play doh, play dough, or playdough) is an iconic childhood sensory activity. The smell and feel of Play-Doh is a classic hallmark of growing up. It helps encourage creativity and inspires open-ended play. In 1960, the Play-Doh Fun Factory (a toy press that extrudes the compound in various shapes) was invented by Bob Boggild and Bill Dale.  The Play-Doh Fuzzy Pumper Barber & Beauty Shop of 1977 and Mop Top Hair Shop of 1986 featured a figurine whose extruded "hair" could be styled. The product line branched out in 1960 with the introduction of the Play-Doh Fun Factory, a toy press that allowed the compound to be pumped out in different shapes. Other line extensions included Animal Ark, Make a Meal Sub Shop and Dr. Drill & Fill, though none had the lasting ability of the Fun Factory, which is still sold today.

Sales soared in 1958 when Play-Doh was featured in televised ads on “ Captain Kangaroo,” “ Ding Dong School” and “ Romper Room.” Bob Keeshan, who portrayed the Captain, would talk about the product twice a week on his show, earning 2 percent of sales.
