You Won’t Believe What Hasbro Just Trademarked!
Hasbro Corporation recently won a trademark for something insane!
They have trademarked the scent of Play-Doh!! That's right, according to Business Wire, they were able to apply and receive a trademark for the scent of this beloved childhood toy!
Since the PLAY-DOH brand’s inception in 1956, the distinctive smell has consistently served as a hallmark of the brand, and after more than six decades providing children with a source of imaginative and creative play, the scent has become increasingly recognizable among children, parents and grandparents alike. Throughout its history, the “recipe” for PLAY-DOH compound has remained largely unchanged, ensuring the scent fans smell when opening a can of PLAY-DOH compound, is the same scent many grew up with and now enjoy alongside their own children or grandchildren.
Hasbro has described the smell as, "sweet, slightly musky, vanilla-like fragrance, with slight overtones of cherry and the natural smell of a salted, wheat-based dough."
