01 October 2014

It's hard to admit it, but somehow I missed National Play-Doh Day. September 16th came and went, and so did the chance for a big Play-Doh celebration. Still, I cannot just let it go by without some sort of salute to the product that got most of us started on our way to polymer claying. So, here is my small, but respectful homage to a special day that is already marked on my calendar for 2015.

The theme for NP-DD 2014 was cinematic. James Gunn, director of Guardians of Galaxy, appeared on the Today show, September 16th, where he talked about rewarding his actors, throughout the film shoot, by handing out 40 canisters of Play-Doh in total.

Here is a link to some of the creations that showcase a few of everyone's favorite teen movies: https://www.yahoo.com/movies/5-unforgettable-teen-movie-moments-in-play-doh-97653417232.html
