Back when I was a kid, I had Play-Doh just like any other child growing up. Just to open the sealed can and take a whiff of the distinctive fresh smell of the stuff was quite intoxicating, if not was the anticipation of putting my hands of the mushy compound to create something. It wasn't clay, but had various colors. Looking back on it, I'm surprised that I never sunk my teeth into it, even though the label had it declared non-toxic and safe for kids. Quite honestly, it looked quite edible. Aside from stopping short of eating the molding compound, I did create quite a few things, though no one would be able to identify what I was trying to do, which in turn made me realize that I was never going to be an artist or in this case, a sculptor.
Anyway, in honor of National Play-Doh Day, here's a link to the Mental Floss website, listing 10 Fun Facts About Play-Doh.
