Play-Doh is turning 50. Get creative by playing with, and smelling like, the world's most famous modelling compound.
Play-Doh - Get Creative
You may think that your days of using Play-Doh
stopped when you became potty-trained and your parents stopped feeding you - but this long-time modelling compound is still fun for all ages
. Here's a few fun uses for Play-Doh you may not have thought of:
Stress Buster - Take a break from homework and make a Play-Doh model of your most-hated teacher. Then take out your exam-anxiety by pounding the model into a Play-Doh pancake (Can also be used to take out your anger at ex-crushes, siblings or parents).
Learning Tool - Play-Doh can be used to make models of everything from the earth's layers to the solar system to Egyptian landmarks. Use it for a science fair project or get extra brownie points by showing up to science class with a Play-Doh model of the human digestive system.
Creative Fun - Play-Doh can be used to make seasonal gifts, model vehicles or mini-figures of your favorite celebrities - let your imagination run wild!

Play-Doh - The New Scent For Summer?
If you've ever played with Play-Doh, you know that distinctive smell
it has. To help celebrate its 50th birthday, Play-Doh is bottling that famous scent in an "eau de Play-Doh"
bottle of perfume. According to Play-Doh, this fragrance is geared towards "highly creative adults"
, so it might not be a bad birthday gift for your off-the-wall mom or end-of-year present for your flakey English teacher
. What's next? A perfume that smells like macaroni and cheese? Or perhaps a body wash that smells like new sneakers
