Discovered when looking for a rubber substitute during WWII, Silly® Putty was first sold in 1950 and soon became a kid favorite.©2012 The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis, Inc.

I remember using it to copy the Sunday funnies. Also it would 'walk away" if it was not put away tightly. Or was that a parent's trick? Not too sure now. - Pat, Carmel, IN
There are so many to vote for, but Silly Putty was/is still great. When we had it in the 60's, we would press it on the comic strips in the paper, capture the comic, then stretch the Silly Putty to make the faces, etc. into crazy shapes and sizes. My nephew is now 15 but Santa still puts Silly Putty in his stocking every Christmas. The tradition continues! - Laura, Indianapolis
