Playdough is a popular children's toy that has been around for generations. It is a soft, pliable material that can be molded into various shapes and designs. While parents appreciate the creative and imaginative play that playdough can offer, they are often concerned about the safety of the product.
One common misconception is that "non-toxic" means "natural" and "taste safe." This is not necessarily the case. Non-toxic simply means that the product does not contain harmful chemicals that can cause harm if ingested. It does not mean that the product is made from natural ingredients or that it is safe to eat.
Many store-bought brands of playdough are made with synthetic materials, such as fragrances and artificial food dyes, which are not natural. Even though these materials are deemed non-toxic, they can still cause harm if ingested in large quantities. Children may be tempted to taste playdough or accidentally ingest small amounts while playing with it, which is why it is important to supervise playtime and ensure that playdough is not consumed.
