I found this picture on pinterest and I have to honestly say I sort of forgot about Silly Putty.
Didn't we all love playing with it?
About the best thing it was used for was lifting print off of newspapers.
A few facts about Silly Putty:
It was introduced in 1950 (actually created in 1943).
Something that is older than me.
It was made by mistake, while trying to come up with a rubber substitute for use during WWII.
(During WWII all rubber items were rationed - I did not know that!)
But you can also break it.
It is owned by Crayola.
It is flammable.
Still sold in plastic eggs - originally for $1.
It's first target group was adults.
20,000 eggs are sold EACH day - that's pretty amazing.
It can be used as a cleaning agent in your home.
It is also used in physical therapy.
Pretty amazing stuff actually.
Who would have imagined this Silly Putty, which had a somewhat rocky start, could have so many uses and be around for so many years?
