CRAZY AARON ON THE NEWS
For as long as I can remember, I always had a penchant for putty. While I enjoyed the one that immediately comes to most people’s minds, it was created for mass market in 1957 and left much to be desired. This was 1998. I figured with all the advances in science and engineering made in the last 30 years, there had to be ways to improve it. So began my quest...
I taught myself chemistry. I learned a bit about physics. And after a whole lot of experimenting, my first batch of Thinking Putty® was born!
I quickly realized that this product was so unique and the creation process so sensitive, I was going to have to build my own factory to make it.
So that’s just what I did. And as my business grew, so did my desire to give back to my community. Now 25 years later, it has been an honor to make Thinking Putty® and Land of Dough® products whose quality, beauty, and hand feel stand above and beyond. Today, I look back stunned at how my hobby turned into an international business touching so many lives.
