12 Classic Toys That Still Rock

8 of 13

Play-Doh (Hasbro)

What smells like childhood? Play-Doh, according to a study of people born between 1930 and 1980. As a child, you probably played with Play-Doh straight out of the can, and also in conjunction with the Play-Doh factory – that irresistible device that churned out miles of Play-Doh snakes. (Who can make the longest one without breaking it?) Now ponder this: If all the Play-Doh made since 1956 was pushed through the Fun Factory, it would make a snake that would wrap around the world nearly 300 times. Buy a few cans for the kids, tell them to keep it off the rug (with which it seems to form an unbreakable bond), and get busy sculpting.

Ages 3-8
