Kim and I mentioned the new Play-Doh cologne in our last podcast. Hasbro has commissioned Demeter Fragrance Library to create and distribute the scent in honor of Play-Doh’s 50th anniversary. I’m not sure how many people would actually buy the stuff, especially at $19 an ounce. In fact, I read on Foxnews.com that they didn’t necessarily expect that many people would actually wear it, but rather “take it out of (their) purse or glove compartment now and then and just smell it.”
Interesting. Why wouldn’t I just buy a container of real Play-Doh for a few bucks and stick THAT in my purse or glove compartment? Then I could actually take it out and play around with it while I’m in line or backed up in traffic.
I think this is another example of how grown-ups need to throw money at something before they can justify being childlike. Reconnecting with your childlike spirit isn’t always easy, but it doesn’t need to be expensive.
