more at home! It is fun and challenging! ” said Eunice.

Yip, Brand Manager for Hasbro Toy (Malaysia)
said, “Play-Doh is known
as a teaching tool to promote the development of children’s motor skills,
communication skills, and sensory experience and creativity. When you open a can of Play-Doh
compound, it inspires endless possibilities and we encourage parents to
cultivate their children’s creative minds, and spend more quality time with
them while exploring different ideas. With World Play-Doh Day and Malaysia Day
falling on 16 September, it is only right to create a series of food that
carries the Malaysian identity with Play-Doh. This campaign has
attracted a lot of good entries and selecting the winner was not easy. What
gave Eunice the edge was her creativity and how she interpreted her creation.
We are happy to have Michelle and Eunice on board with Play-Doh to celebrate
this year’s World Play-Doh in a Malaysian way.”

as a media partner. As parents, it is important to foster children’s
creativity, and also to encourage them to participate in arts. We want to share
this with our readers, and The Malaysian Women’s Weekly has always been about
delivering the message to parents on the importance of cultivating and
nurturing a healthy and creative mind. We were very impressed after witnessing
the sculptures that came from the hands and minds of Eunice and Michelle.”

having it for breakfast, brunch, lunch, tea, or dinner – having dim sum is
always an occasion with my family and loved ones,” said food artist Michelle
With humble beginnings as wallpaper cleaner, the
Play-Doh brand has come a long way. Starting off with only four colours of red,
blue, yellow and white when they started, the modelling compound brand is now
available in more than 50 colours! More than
three billion cans of Play-Doh compound have been squished and squashed since
1956. Following Play-Doh’s 60th
Anniversary last year, the Play-Doh brand continues to encourage creative,
hands-on play with its various playsets such as Kitchen Creations, Food Role
Play, Shape and Learn and the brand new digital playset Play-Doh Touch.
