Amazon's having a sale. You should take advantage of it. Because, let's face it, you can never have enough dough.

There are few toys kids “ruin” as fast as Play-Doh. It only takes a couple of times before every can in the box becomes a lump of brown dough. Which is why it can never hurt to stock up when the colorful clay goes on sale. Like today, on Amazon, where it’s up to 40-percent off.

While the one-day-only sale focuses primarily on playsets, it’s anchored by the basics: A discounted 24-pack of 3-ounce cans in a rainbow assortment of colors. When a few cans get muddied together, no big deal ⏤ there are still 20 more in the box. Regularly $21 for the case, it’s on sale today for $12. As for the playsets, here are three worth noting.

Touch Shape to Life Studio

The biggest deal of the day — both in terms of coolness and price cut ⏤ is Play-Doh’s augmented reality studio, which lets kids create clay characters and then virtually bring them to life on a smartphone or tablet. It comes with stampers, cutters, and seven cans of dough, and it’s marked down from $50 to $14.
