This stuff was great- My parents would always threaten to never buy me any more cuz I would get it stuck to the carpet of leave the lid off. I can see know how this is a parents nightmare.. Never buy this as a gift for a kid... The parents may never forgive you!!

If I remember correctly, this stuff was fairly tasty.

This stuff will never go out of style. I'm 20 years old and I just bought myself a pack of it at Toys R Us recently....they have colors now you could only get by mixing them when you were little.

I too loved the smell! We had the toy that molded it.

I loved the smell, texture and taste! LOL! I never actually ate it, but it was cool just placing my tongue on it. It tasted very salty.

Did anyone else have the McDonald's Play-Doh Set? It had little molds to make hamburger patties, buns, and toppings like lettuce and pickles out of play-doh. It also had a "shake" dispenser and french-fry makers which were more or less just variations on the fun factory.

Sadly... as with most of you, the first thing that comes to mind when I think of Play-Doh is of course the smell, and the taste... HAHAHA! Atleast I'm not the only one! WOOO!

Ya I had the mcdonald's one with the hamburger molds and such! My mom always made me put an old table cloth on the floor b4 I could play with it! Kept the carpet fresh! :) Its a good idea as long as the kids will keep it there!

My parents had no problem with my brother and I playing with play-doh as long as we had a sheet underneath. I had a pizza hut set and a little white oven and other things. Very fun!

Now that i think back, i took my Play-do very seriously. I think i thought i was some sort of a sculpter with that stuff. Hahaha...I also never played well with others when Play-do was around and sharing was out of the question. What was my problem?? Hahaha

The smell of Play-Doh has to be one of the best smells. EVER. IN LIFE!

My brother and I had tons of fun with our play-doh as children. We made all sorts of things. We noticed that "Santa" stopped bringing us play-doh every year once our mother noticed it caked to her carpet in the den!!!

a classic toy. I loved licking it. hours of fun.

I was never allowed to have Pay-doh, which made me think that my parents were being unreasonable by comparing me to my brother who got it all over the carpet. Now that I am a parent, I don't let my children bring it in the house.

My mom was very adamant that I did NOT mix Play-doh colors, lol. I remember having to be very neat about my playing with it, too (no Play-doh near the carpet or on the glass coffee table). I had the Fun Factory.

My mother never bought it for me. She had a recipe so she made it herself for me. And she'd dye it different colors. But I found some last year at school in the art classroom and I stole it.

I use to love the way it smelled and all of the different colors. I would even mix two colors together to make a "new" color. I even tasted it but it didnt taste good, haha.

I am a fan of play doh even up to this day!:) I remember having the burger king playset. Does anyone of you remember that?

The smell was out of this world. I used to love just taking the lid off and sticking my nose in the pot LOL. Happy days!

I loved play doh I still do its fun to play with. When I was little I did eat it. My mom used to help me make home made play doh when my play doh dried out.

This was also fun to smash into the carpet. The colour never out!

I LOVED this stuff when I was a kid. It's still around, but it's just not the same as it use to be. Did anybody else have the Ghostbusters set that came with glow-in-the-dark Play Doh? I remember thinking that was pretty nifty when I was little.

I loved Play Doh! I used to mix the colours together. The smell of it was awesome! It smelt so much better than plasticine. So many good memories. I think I've still got some somewhere but it's hard as rocks now :-(

I loved playing with Play-Doh. Now they have all different colors. Back then, there wasn't that many colors.
Meg - February 13, 2010 - Report this comment
I was ridiculously picky about my play-doh. No mashed carpets, no open lids, and especially no mixed colors-- ever! I would go so far as to squish it down to the bottom of the container as far as possible so that it would have as little exposure to air as possible. Yes, I was a very anal toddler. I even had a dedicated table in my room to play-doh and kept all the toys and molds associated with it meticulously clean. I still love play-doh. hahaha

I loved my play doh I mixed all the colours up. I used to love the smoothness of it when you first take it out of the box. You could never get the plaster smell off your hands I left mine out and it went hard my mum told me off because I dropped some then treaded it into the carpet but I still got some more it was great hours of fun.

I never tasted it, but the SMELL rates right up there with Crayola paint and a box of brand new Crayola Crayons. Those smells are pure childhood!I was also very anal about my Playdough when it was new. After a while when it got raggedy it was like "Whatever" and then I would let my friends play with it. I'm anal about my son's now. He isn't allowed to mix colors or let it sit out. It must stay at the kitchen table at all times.

Gald to see that I wasn't the only one who ate it!!! LOL!!! I thought about getting some for my 3 year old but as a parent I really wouldn't want him to eat any of the stuff. I ate soooo much I wonder if it is still in there some how!!!!

I loved playdough I played with it my entire life, and had all of the sets, including the McDonalds one, my favorite however was the troll hair cut one where you could make your own hair styles. I also vagly remember making birthday cakes however I have no Idea if that was a set or not. I use to make my brother a birthday cake for every day he was alive and pretend it was his birthday. He was only a baby so he wasn't allowed to play :D

I was really insane though, I was a really good child, and never put stuff in my mouth that I wasn't suppose to. I never ate playdough, and to this day I don't put random things in my mouth even to include new foods, or whatever. If I havn't tasted it before or it looks weird or smells weird it dosn't go in my mouth. . My parents really screwed me up.

I still have the McDonalds set, a pizza set and a Mr Potato head-like set. I use them when I babysit. Now they are hard to find. Play doh is good for developing fine motor skills.

I remember, I begged my mom and grandparents for a snack shop
