Play-Doh has been known for years and years but it over time, improvements have been made. Among other things, there seem to always have new scents. We can now find play dough that smells like “balloon” gum, fruit, chocolate, and so on.
But now the well-known brand of play dough (owned by Hasbro) has decided to innovate again, trying to charm the adults this time. It's not really its target audience, but who knows?
With the goal of appealing to an older crowd and, of course, getting talked about on social media, Play-Doh is releasing a line of scented dough that are supposed to appeal to adults.
Among the “adult” scent, you can find : Overpriced Latte (coffee); Mom Jeans (clean denim); Grill King (smoked meats); Dad Sneakers (rubber); Spa Day (floral); and Lord of the Lawn (fresh cut grass). You have to admit its rather funny!
An initiative imbued with nostalgia, but also humor.“Overpriced Café Latte”, with its visual reminiscent of Starbucks coffees is a funny gift for coffee addicts!
At the moment, these unusual products seem to be available only on Hasbro's US Amazon store. If this dough is available where you live, will you want to go back to play dough?
Which scent would appeal to you the most, if any? “Spa Day” seems very relaxing, doesn't it? But the steak smell might scare away vegetarians! And what about Dad sneakers, do you remember what that smells like?
But if "grown-up" smells make you reconnect with the simple fun of play dough, your kids might be happy! It could be a fun activity to do with the family.
According to their website: " This 6-pack of scented Play-Doh modeling compound for adults is the semi-childish fun you deserve to have every once in a while. It's like an adult coloring books alternative!"
These "Grown Up" Play-Doh could make a great stocking gift or a great white elephant gift!
What do you think? Will you go back to Play-Doh?
