Play-Doh Creates Inspiration-Filled Museum

Some might visit Play-Doh’s Gallery of Emerging Species and jump to the conclusion that the manufacturer of the toy modeling compound is genetically engineering new creatures to inhabit our planet. Admittedly, the Gallery of Emerging Species is considerably less terrifying than Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park. Filled with whimsical and imagination-inspiring creatures, the site looks and feels like a museum showcasing these handcrafted Play-Doh creations.

We dare you to visit this portal and not get swept up in the delightful new species and their backstories. There are just too many things to love about the site, including the thoughtful consideration of the mobile experience. It works wonderfully across a variety of devices, both big and small, and takes great care to give all users a very similar experience.

The real question here is – when will we actually see a Carwashy in real life? Who wouldn’t want a small spongy animal with a car washing obsession? And would it be legal to have one as a pet so our cars will always be clean?
