  • Now it's MORE of an incentive to "find the purple play-doh" in the potty! Our LO loves to lick it. I guess it's salty. But the makers of play-doh know that it will be eaten, and have tried to make it as tasty as possible, LOL!

  • Look for fun colored poop - other than that, relax. It's non-toxic and won't harm him unless he's allergic to wheat.

  • Lol... im sorry but this is so funny. There are four of us and growing up we weren't allowed to play with Play-Doh because my youngest brother thought it was so delicious he would find a way to eat it every time. My mom didn't understand why he was pooping purple until one day she caught him in the act. My brother turned out fine & this happened on multiple occasions. Its quite salty and he might have a little bit of a hard time pooping I would just give him water to help with both.
