In the fall of 1998, I was designing web sites for a living and, overall, having fun in the dot com world. I was always on the lookout for "the ultimate desk toy." One day I convinced a good number of my colleagues to pool our resources and buy 100lbs of Bouncing Putty from a large chemical supplier. After much convincing, cajoling, and coordinating, the shipment finally arrived.
Watching people react to Putty -- in adult sizes -- was a unique experience. Some people just looked at it, hesitant to touch something that might be "sticky" or "gooey." Other people weren't comfortable playing with a toy in front of co-workers. Eventually, though, everyone's subconscious won over, it was in their hands, and they never wanted to put it down! Squeezing, stretching, and shaping...they didn't even realize it was there! As it melted their stress away, their creative potential was unleashed!
Needless to say, not much work was done at the office that day! Very quickly, all the putty was gone. As the company grew, people kept visiting my cube asking for more. After some investment, experiments, and late nights of putty research, the word started to get around the office. I was selling putty by the pound from a box under my desk.
People would stop by. They'd pick their favorite color (which I had learned to create), and we'd weigh it out on the desk with a pocket scale and a plastic baggie. Not too long afterwards, I was officially dubbed "Crazy" Aaron.
Well, dot com's bomb and so it goes. Puttyworld was born in the spring of 2001 and we've been having crazy fun ever since. After expanding beyond the capacity of my parent's basement, we moved our production to a vocational facility in Philadelphia's suburbs. There our product is proudly Made in the USA.
After a decade of selling exclusively on our website, Thinking Putty can now be found in hundreds of retail stores nationwide and on many international websites.
