Play-Doh

Made up of a fairly simple ingredient list, including flour, water, salt, boric acid, and mineral oil, Play-Doh was first manufactured in Cincinnati as wallpaper cleaner in the 1930s. As children often do with things of a malleable nature, they began constructing sculptures out of the compound even though it wasn't initially developed for that purpose. Eventually, the product's creators took note and had Play-Doh reworked in the mid-1950s to sell the toy to prominent department stores. The rest, as they say, is history.
