Wallpaper cleaner: This is what Play-Doh was first sold as. People could remove soot and dirt from their wall coverings by simply rolling a wad of good Play-Doh across the surface. Sadly, during these days, Play-Doh only came in one color, off-white. But once it hit stores as a toy, blue and yellow were available. Today, Plah-doh comes in nearly every color of the rainbow.
Demeter Fragrance Library: The company that worked with Hasbro to make a special 50th anniversary fragrance. This special fragrance that smells exactly like Play-Doh is “meant for highly creative people who seek a whimsical scent reminiscent of their childhood,” said Hasbro.
Play-Doh Pete: The first rendition of this little man was introduced to the world in 1960. However, Pete, as well as the logo, has changed over the years.

1986: In this year, the cardboard can was abandoned for a more cost-effective plastic container. The cardboard cans were somewhat flimsy and had a metal bottom that was vulnerable to rust. Plastic seemed like the perfect next choice to keep Play-Doh fresh and ready for fun.
