Barack Obama and Mitt Romney Like You've Never Seen Them Before! {Play-Doh Prettiest Princess Castle Giveaway}

Play-Doh logo
With the presidential election just over a month away, you don't have to go far to find heated discussions for and against both candidates. Their platforms, their viewpoints, their issues, their morals... I'm pretty sure every possible aspect of President Barack Obama and presidential candidate Mitt Romney have been scrutinized down to the tiniest detail.

While I don't have the slightest iota of interest in talking politics, I can say that, without a doubt, this is my favorite way that I have ever seen both of these men look:

presidential candidates in play-doh

Did your jaw just hit the floor? Because mine did!

Made completely from scratch and 100% out of Play-Doh, these life-like molds of Obama and Romney took over 40 hours to sculpt and, in my opinion, turned out amazing. Ian Williams, a 21-year-old fourth year student at Rhode Island School of Design, worked tirelessly on these as he competed with fellow RISD students for the exclusive opportunity for the title of "Official Play-Doh Artist of the Year" and a $5,000 tuition stipend.

And boy did he deserve to win!

Each entrant sculpted both the Democratic and Republican Party 2012 presidential candidates using only Play-Doh compound. Entries were judged based on five criteria including realism, craftsmanship, creativity, presentation, and incorporation of the Play-Doh brand personality.

Not only did Williams receive the stipend and bragging rights, but he will now work with Hasbro (Play-Doh's parent company) to create a variety of original Play-Doh creations for use on the brand's digital channels. So keep an eye on the Play-Doh Facebook page to see what unique ideas he comes up with next!
"I'm passionate about sculpting and grew up playing with Play-Doh so I'm truly honored to be chosen as the 'Official Play-Doh Artist of the Year,'" said Williams. "Working with Hasbro is a wonderful opportunity and I look forward to sharing my creativity with the Play-Doh online community."

Play-doh

The Play-Doh brand is proud to celebrate over 50 years of colorful, creative play. Since it was first introduced in 1956, Play-Doh modeling compound has become a classic and beloved toy, used in homes and schools around the world by children of all ages.

As a testament to just how many fans Play-Doh has, they have recently celebrated the exciting online milestone of reaching one million Facebook fans! To mark the occasion, the Play-Doh brand is donating one million cans of compound to select charities to help inspire young, creative minds across the nation. I love that!

From the original canister of a single color to the many, many creative accessories, tools, toys, playsets and more that are now available, Play-Doh is one name that has a place in all of our lives. And, thanks to their generosity and in honor of Ian Williams' creativity, one person will get to set aside the ongoing Democrat vs Republican battle and instead think about something much more fun (princesses!) because...

One lucky person will win a Play-Doh Prettiest Princess Castle!
