PAWTUCKET, R.I.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Families can now stay stocked up on their favorite playtime essentials

“NERF and PLAY-DOH are two of our most popular brands with families

said Jeff Jackson, VP of Sales at Hasbro. “We don’t want the fun to stop
when supplies run low and teaming up with Amazon allows our consumers to
keep playtime going while incorporating our brands more seamlessly into
their everyday activities.”
The Amazon Dash Button is a small, Wi-Fi connected electronic device
that makes ordering products quick and efficient. Starting today, the

In addition to the new Amazon Dash Buttons, the PLAY-DOH and NERF brands
