When I was a kid I would play with two similar things: clay and play-doh. Clay was for making little sculptures of things. Mainly monsters and snakes. Play-doh existed to be extruded into various shapes. Stringy hair, pointy stars or square french fries. It’s probably easy for an adult to do but I remember having to use my entire body weight to push down the plunger and squeeze out the dough. Then I would just ball it back up and squish it through a different shape in a never-ending cycle.
