What kind of Play-Doh parent are you?

Do you encourage your kids to build with abandon, combining colors as they see fit? Or do you not-so-secretly hope that they play with the colors separately, so they don’t turn into a muddled gray mess?

For the first time in the company’s 65-year history, Play-Doh is selling its iconic toy with several colors mixed in one bucket that weighs nearly three pounds.

Play-Doh conducted a poll and found that over half of all parents surveyed admitted to having “irrational stress” about mixing colors.





The company says they want parents and kids to embrace the mess and let loose with their new All Mixed Up tub.

“With PLAY-DOH compound, the imperfect is perfect, the mess is a masterpiece, and colors are meant to be mixed!” said Eric Nyman, Chief Consumer Officer at Hasbro. “In honor of our 65th birthday, we invite parents to take a deep breath and let PLAY-DOH happen, because just like life, play should be messy, fun, and wonderful!”

Parents tend to have strong opinions about mixing Play-Doh. Whether you’re #TeamMixItUp or #TeamKeepItClean, this new tub might be exactly what parents need after a year of raising kids in a pandemic.

It’s fun, creative, safe, and yes—a little messy. Let’s lean into the mess, mamas.
