Lola Rovati @Lolarovati

All the children have ever played with plasticine. If they have not done so, we recommend it because it is a very beneficial activity for the development of manual skills that at the same time stimulates the creativity of the little ones.

One of the best-known brands is Play Doh, from the Hasbro company, which has just patented the smell of plasticine . If there is something for which this brand of dough is remembered to play, it is because of its smell, which incidentally smells very good. It is difficult to define exactly what it smells, but its creators have discovered it.

What does Play Doh play dough smell like?

To patent the smell of the clay they had to explain exactly what it smells in order to register the aroma. According to Hasbro, Play-Doh has "a sweet vanilla fragrance, slightly musky, with light touches of cherry, combined with the aroma of a salty wheat-based dough."

It seems the description of the notes of a wine, but it is one of the most popular toys among children around the world. The children are entertained a lot by molding plasticine and creating figures. It is a fun and stimulating activity, especially in pre-school age to help develop fine motor skills.

Is it toxic?

The good smell, coupled with the fact that children are explorers by nature, can make them take it to their mouths and want to try it. While we should try to avoid getting it in your mouth, in case of ingesting it accidentally, we should know that the brand ensures that the plasticine is made from water, salt and flour, and that it is not toxic .

Also, clarifies that special care should be taken in case of having celiac children, since it is made of wheat flour contains gluten.

What if I do not want to buy it?

The Play Doh brand is one of the most sold, with fairly convenient prices. For example, you can buy 20 cans of plasticine for 16.95 euros, sets to make comiditas for 11.99 euros or to make ice cream for 16.36 euros.

But if you do not want to buy it, you also have the option of making homemade clay with ingredients that you have at home, or salt paste, although they dry out and it is not convenient to eat them because of their high salt content.
