Play-Doh Car Weighs Almost as Much as the Real ThingS

At 1.5 tons, this life-size model of the Chevrolet Orlando weighs just 369lbs less than the real thing. There's no driving this car, though. Built over two weeks by a team of eight sculptors, the car is parked on a London street as a publicity stunt for the new Orlando.

Why Play-doh? According to Chevrolet's recent survey of 1,000 Brits, it's the nation's favorite childhood toy with 19 per cent of the votes. A tenuous link, but there you go. Had Lego got 2 per cent more votes, we would be staring at a Lego Orlando right now—though I quite like that this bright blue car is the world's largest Play-doh sculpture.
