Reactions ranged from "omg that SMELL!" to "fuck I'm so bad at art fuck."
But one thing was constant: These professional, office-job-having grown-ups were absolutely transfixed in the face of the near-mystical element.
One editor made an Illuminati symbol.
One drew inspiration from the very internet we swim in.
Some made Pokémon.
While others made Adventure Time characters.
There was a Play-Doh piñata.
And a Starbucks cup.
And a pizza angel.
Some folks showed an innate grasp of the medium.
Some turned abstract.
While others conjured up past favorites.
But only one editor used Play-Doh the way God and our childhoods intended.
National Play-Doh Day is, apparently, happening on Sept. 16.
If you are inspired to create masterpieces of your own (or happen to have [hopefully photographic] relics from yr past), add 'em in the comments.
