dunno about brand name but you can make your own with flour and water that you can bake. I'm not sure what else goes in it but you could google it

I found this at the play-dough website:

 

How can I preserve a PLAY-DOH compound creation?

PLAY-DOH compound is designed to use over and over again.

If allowed to harden (to preserve a creation) it will most likely crack. Look for oven curable clay at your local craft stores (Michael's, JoAnn Fabric, etc.) to make long lasting creations.

 

or you could just make your own playdough.....

 Keep it Clay
This mixture dries VERY hard great for making jewerly like beads ect.

1 (1-pound) box baking soda
1 cup cornstarch
1 1/4 cups cold water
Food coloring (Gel is best or leave it plain and paint later)

Mix baking soda and cornstarch together then add water. Cook and stir over low heat until consistency of mashed potatoes. Remove the dough from the heat and cover with damp towel until it is cool enough to handle. Use for play dough or jewelry shaping or roll it out and cut with cookie cutter to make decorations.

Store in an air tight container
