Play-Doh Releases Scented Product Line for Adults

Play-Doh was originally invented as a substance to remove soot from wallpaper, and it wasn’t until decades later that it was marketed as a product for children. And now, in a manner of speaking, Play-Doh is returning to its roots.

The latest Play-Doh innovation is a product line entitled “Grown Up Scents,” and according to Play-Doh general manager Leena Vadaketh, it’s designed to appeal to the sensory cravings of adults. Notable examples include “Overpriced Latte,” “Lord of the Lawn,” “Mom Jeans,” and “Grill King.”

According to Vadaketh, they’re also for “anyone who loves a good laugh.” Corporate parent Hasbro has claimed that Play-Doh sales have surged during the 2020 pandemic as parents try to find more activities to do with their children while they’re stuck at home together.

Possible Preaching Angle:

Just as we are soothed by familiar aromas, God is pleased and honored by righteous conduct and holy sacrifice.
