National Play-Doh Day

National Play-Doh Day celebrates a great childhood play toy. Invented in the mid 1950s, it has entertained millions of children, and allowed them to express their creativity, both at home and in the classroom.

The invention was simple. A school teacher wanted a safe modeling clay for her pre-schoolers. She asked her brother-in-law Joseph McVicker, who worked at a chemical company, to come up with something. The result was simple….flour, water and food coloring.

Its fun and easy to celebrate National Play-Doh Day. Simply pull out the Play-Doh and ……Play! There are other brands of play clay on the market. Having raised three children, this author has never seen a better brand than Play-Doh.

Happy National Play-Doh Day! Origin of National Play-Doh Day: Play-doh was created in 1955 by Joseph McVicker of Kutol Chemicals in Cincinnati, Ohio. It hit the market in 1956, and has been a  popular play toy ever since. It was created because McVicker’s sister-in-law wanted a safe, clay-like product for her nursery school children to use. Noah and Joseph McVicker received U.S. Patent No. 3,167,440 for Play-Doh.
