Hasbro has trademarked the “sweet, slightly musky” smell of Play-Doh


- Hasbro trademarked the “unique scent formed through the combination of a sweet, slightly musky, vanilla-like fragrance, with slight overtones of cherry, and the natural smell of a salted, wheat-based dough,” citing its recognizability amongst generations of people. This is unfortunate for people who sell Play-Doh candles on etsy.

- They also just bought the Power Rangers, described as a “powerhouse toyetic property,” from Saban for $522 million.

- Hasbro is apparently really getting into IP since the demise of Toys R Us.
