Term:  Play-Doh



Invented by Noah McVicker and Joseph McVicker in 1956, Play-Doh is a wheat flour based modelling compound which is marketed as a child's toy.
It is non-toxic, non-staining, and soluble in soapy water. It remains pliable when kept in a sealed container, but hardens in about 24 hours when exposed to air.
