Go To Graceland With Paul Simon at American Airlines Center, Raise the Skate With Speedy Ortiz, Use Deep Ellum Spelling Bee In A Sentence at Three Links and Watch Clueless at Sundown.

Sometimes a sound, taste or a smell can bring us back to simpler days of childhood, when you didn’t have to worry about your job, social media or housing payments. A smell that takes a lot of people back to those days of childhood innocence is scent of Play-Doh.

The unmistakable aroma emitted from a fresh can of Play-Doh is now officially trademarked and owned by Hasbro. It’s hard to tell what sort of utility trademarking a smell serves, but if there is a smell that can be tied to a brand it’s Play-Doh.

The global toy and game company pretty much owns your childhood. Transformers, GI Joe, My Little Pony, NERF and Monopoly are all Hasbro-owned franchises. As if owning some of the biggest franchises in the world wasn’t enough. So if you are out there trying to re-create the Play-Doh smell and sell it on your own, you may want to find a new career path.

Check out these events and concerts happening in Dallas this week, they will be more memorable than the Play-Doh smell.
