Play-Doh Celebrates 60 Years Anniversary!

Today I brought my 2 kids to The Curve, Mutiara Damansara to celebrate Play-Doh's 60 years anniversary. Time flies and I still remember playing Play-Doh when I was 7-9 years old. Play-Doh has been around so long to let children have so much fun and happiness. Children are so imaginative and I am impressed how creative they are.


Visitors to the Curve this school holidays will be greeted by endless creativity and fun. Doh-llywood Wall of Fame features handprints and birthday messages of 60 celebrities and influencers, also known as Doh-Bassadors of Creativity. Launched today in conjunction with Play-Doh's 60th anniversary and World Play-Doh Day on 16th September, the event pays homage to the role Play-Doh has played in the lives of these individuals. Organised by Hasbro Toy (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd., the event will be held from 6th - 18th September 2016 at the Centre Court, the Curve, Mutiara Damansara.




Play-Doh was originally developed by a soap company based in Cincinnati, United States, to be used as wallpaper cleaner. It's a compound with three core ingredients - water, salt and flour. Play-Doh started with 4 colours red, yellow, white and blue 60 years ago and is now available in more than 50 colours!

The iconic yellow can was introduced to the world in 1956 and since then has expanded into more than 80 countries across the globe with more than three billion cans of Play-Doh compound sold - that's enough Play-Doh compound to reach to the moon and back three times! Visitors who come here will be able to meet and greet Doh Doh, the Play-Doh mascot over the weekends.


Kelly Yip, Brand Manager for Hasbro Toy (Malaysia) said, "The Play-Doh brand is known to promote the development of children's motor skills ,communication skills and creativity. Likewise, the activities during this event will encourage children to open a can of imagination - to tap into their creativity and imagination. When you open a can of Play-Doh compound, it inspires endless possibilities of what you can create with Play-Doh. I would like to extend my personal thanks to our Doh-Bassadors for agreeing to be a part of this initiative. Having been around for 60 years, Play-Doh is proud to play a part in the childhood of many of these individuals. Many of them are parents themselves now, using Play-Doh to cultivate creativity in their very own children."

At this event, children aged 3 to 6 years old will be able to enjoy many activities such as Great Bake Off, Zooventure, Go Bananas (with fruits), and Let's Go Doh-Town whereby children are encouraged to open a can of imagination and be guided to sculpt and create their own Play-Doh masterpieces. To participate in these activities, participants need to purchase a minimum of RM 36 worth of products to enjoy any 2 activities. Upon purchase of minimum RM 60, participants will be given a gift and can choose up to 3 activities besides having a chance to sit on an electronic car ride around the atrium.




Play-Doh Town  is the latest design.
