Crazy Aaron's Putty World

For as long as he can remember, Crazy Aaron always had a penchant for putty. While he 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. He 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 his quest...

He taught myself chemistry. He learned a bit about physics. And after a whole lot of experimenting, his first batch of Thinking Putty® was born! He quickly realized that this product was so unique and the creation process so sensitive, Crazy Aaron was going to have to build my own factory to make it. 

So that’s just what he did. And as his business grew, so did his desire to give back to his community. Today, they work with seven Philadelphia-area vocational centers to employ many exceptional individuals with intellectual and physical disabilities. That's in addition to their brand new headquarters in Norristown, PA where Thinking Putty is proudly made in the USA.

People often ask Crazy Aaron how he comes up with all his cool Thinking Putty creations. The truth is that he find ideas everywhere: nature, art, science, math, and even history. He aims to keep his eyes open and he often finds what he didn’t even know he was looking for. His world is such a fascinating place that this seems to happen pretty regularly.

Have fun learning about Thinking Putty. Crazy Aaron's hope is that it inspires you to bring your own ideas to life!
