    Question any equivalent for "Play-Doh"?

    Hi there,

    Is there any British informal or childish term for "Play-Doh"? (soft plastic stuff in colours to be formed by children)...And, is "Plasticine" the same thing? Many thanks in advance.

    play dough.

    "Play-Doh" is a trade name, and is not the same as plasticine.

    Yes, it's used by children too. Also, you can just call it 'plasticine'.
