"For the first time ever, fans can truly bring their creations to life with PLAY-DOH Touch," said Greg Lombardo, vice president of marketing for the PLAY-DOH brand. "Since 1956, the PLAY-DOH brand has evolved to fit the ever-changing wants and needs of our fans from around the world. As we celebrate our 60th birthday this year, it was important to seamlessly infuse new technology into the classic, hands-on PLAY-DOH experience while staying true to our core values of inspiring creativity and imagination."

Kids can amplify classic PLAY-DOH playtime by sculpting their own creations and creating unique, magical worlds with the PLAY-DOH Touch SHAPE TO LIFE STUDIO set, which includes character stampers, action stampers, cutters, tools, PLAY-DOH compound, and a SHAPE TO LIFE STUDIO set. Here's how to bring sculpts to life with the PLAY-DOH Touch app on iPhone and iPad:

PLAY-DOH Touch is the newest innovation in the brand's ever-evolving collection; it encourages an intuitive creative flow that seamlessly loops between shaping physically and exploring digitally.

"The PLAY-DOH Touch app and SHAPE TO LIFE STUDIO set lets us adapt to today's evolving play landscape - while still offering that timeless, hands-on PLAY-DOH fun and even encourages kids to make even more PLAY-DOH creations," Lombardo said. "We're excited to offer our fans a new, unique way that will enhance their PLAY-DOH play."

The PLAY-DOH Touch app was developed by Hasbro with award-winning digital product studio, ustwo Nordics. The PLAY-DOH Touch app is available in the App Store starting today, and the PLAY-DOH Touch SHAPE TO LIFE STUDIO set is available now on Apple.com and at Apple Stores. Early next year, the PLAY-DOH Touch SHAPE TO LIFE STUDIO Set and PLAY-DOH Touch app will be available at additional retailers and on other platforms.
