MUNDANE MYSTERIES: Why did they invent Play-Doh?

If you have kids you probably know the “Play-Doh trick”. If you want them to have some non-screen time, busting out the tub of Play-Doh is a perfect creative way to kill and hour or so. But it wasn’t originally a toy at all.

Play-Doh was first created as a wallpaper cleaner. Which kind of makes sense when you think of the consistency of it. Then over the years once they saw how kids were playing with it they decided to make different colors and market it to children as a fun activity.
