Play-Doh celebrated its 60th anniversary on Friday, dubbing the unofficial holiday "World Play-Doh Day."

To commemorate the significant birthday, Hasbro's iconic brand asked loyal sculptors what they thought the world would look like in 60 years.

Play-Doh was inducted into the Toy Hall of Fame in 1998. The organization notes Play-Doh was originally concocted as a wallpaper cleaner.

The product was sent to a school in the early 1950s after creators learned traditional modeling clay was too difficult for children to use.

Teachers and kids raved about the product, and Play-Doh was born. Learn more about Play-Doh from the National Toy Hall of Fame here.
