Take a quick walk down memory lane with me and think back on your own childhood for just a minute.
Do you remember any of your favorite toys? Not the ones that were big one year and gone the next, but those iconic toys that were there year after year.
Well, if your childhood was anything like mine, PLAY-DOH modeling compound is probably one of the toys at the top of that list, am I right?
Of course it is! The PLAY-DOH brand has stood the test of time because it is such a simple, yet versatile toy that has sparked the imaginations of children throughout generations since 1956!
Now, as they prepare to celebrate its 60th birthday, the people behind the PLAY-DOH brand are bringing our children a brand new way to captivate those imaginations and create their own adventures!
In celebration of this milestone birthday, the PLAY-DOH brand is taking a whole new generation of children on an entirely new set of creatable, makeable adventures that inspire creative storytelling through the use of figures, characters, and town-themed Playsets and vehicles.
While the 60th birthday celebrations will culminate on World PLAY-DOH Day on September 16, we of course, just couldn’t wait that long to start exploring the wonders of PLAY-DOH Town.
These new themed toys make it so easy for children of all ages to create their own PLAY-DOH Town adventures, whether that means they’re holding a party around the ice cream truck or chasing the fire house dog through the town’s fire station, there are endless ways to play!
Our town? Well, it seemed to be all about the firemen and their station! My kids just couldn’t get enough.
What started out as a normal day in PLAY-DOH Town quickly turned into an emergency according to the 5 year old.
A baby bunny escaped from the pet shop and quickly found himself stuck in a sticky puddle of melted ice cream that leaked out of the ice cream truck.
Of course, in a situation as dire as this, there isn’t much you can do but call the firemen! They’ll bring their water hoses and clean up the sticky mess, making sure that the baby bunny is safely returned to his home.
And as far as the almost 3 year old is concerned, as long as the firemen have their hair done beforehand, they can do anything! To the mind of a 2 year old, that includes flying and climbing up the sides of a building.
And of course, what kind of rescue would it be if everyone didn’t finish off the day with a pretend ice cream treat to celebrate?!
Of course, after having played with these Playsets on multiple occasions now, I can tell that pretty much everyday in PLAY-DOH Town is going to be a busy day, but watching as their imaginations come to life as quickly as their stories do, that makes sharing a childhood favorite of mine with my own kids even more magical.
Knowing that they’re learning and growing while crafting their own stories and creating their own adventures, priceless!
