    Is “all of them mixed together” a color? Cause that’s how they end up at my house. 🙂

    We love Play-Doh! Unfortunately or most common color is definitely brown! But I can’t complain when I see how much they love mixing up the colors to make new designs. I love the conveyor belt–what a crack up!

    Honestly… I love the swirled, mushed handful of colors that line through a slightly colorful ball of playdoh. Because it seems after a short while children start making little red worms with blue eyes and yellow antennae and then they squish it all up into a ball and then they start twisting and suddenly you have a blue ball with yellow and red streaks. Then the children become fascinated with seeing how many colors they can get in there!

    It’s the sign of a love and creativity with a toy that you just can’t beat.

    Blue! who doesn’t like play-doh?

  17. Purple! I like anything purple, but my daughter loves pink – of course.

  18. Katie 12/02/2010 at 9:53 am

    I remember playing with playdoh as a kid and we would mix the colors so it looked all tie-dyed even though we didn’t think about how once we do that and then store the playdoh, over time it would turn all gray/brown and be ugly instead of the bright original colors!

  20. Chacoy 12/01/2010 at 10:03 pm

    I’m going to say Green! Do you remember the old pay-doh toy that you used to put the pay-doh in the little dog and put him on a salon chair and twist it around to make the hair grow. Then you could cut the hair, so much fun!!! Maybe that’s where the joy for cutting hair came from.

  28. Lisa Kennedy 12/01/2010 at 5:06 pm

    I love the green! My son loves to play with play-doh!

  29. Els 12/01/2010 at 4:27 pm

    i love play dough. Long after all the other toys run out of batteries, play dough is still there. Sure there is clean up…. but sooo worth it!
