Play-Doh Presidents

Many presidents are easily recognized from photographs and well-known paintings, but can you identify these U.S. presidents made from Play-Doh?
I did sculpt these myself, but I’m very new to this particular medium. I've learned that it's very difficult to create sculptures that resemble their real-life counterparts. Hopefully, that just adds to the challenge! :)

I appreciate all of the positive comments!! Just a couple of responses... 1) I have now specified US presidents. 2) Regarding the sculpting time, each one took roughly an hour. The exception was Nixon. The Nixon pictured here was my third attempt, and I still wasn't happy with him. :) Thanks for taking the quiz!

All of these look pretty good except for Kennedy IMO. Hard to tell who that's supposed to be except through process of elimination knowing that you're looking for a president.

Kennedy was spot on. Washington was the hardest--figured he had to be in there, so I guessed him last.

Why do you know I'm always on every page?* Go outside.

*I'm not... and this comment was from 2 years ago. You sound like my dad who sees my aunt watching TV in the morning, leaves and is gone all day, comes home 12 hours later and sees her watching TV again, and asks why she hasn't left the house. Sometimes I think he hasn't developed object permanence. I've been commenting on this site, in my free time, for literally a decade.

Are you just making that number up or is it listed somewhere?

QM has authored 4,600 quizzes to my 200 or so. I think it's safe to say he has invested more time in this site than I have. Though I'm sure I've left more comments.

I'm glad I'm not the only one that noticed that. After being on here for a few years I have to add my 2 bobs worth. We get it, some comments on here are ridiculously stupid but sometimes not everyone needs to know your opinion on every single comment (this isn't reddit). And I get that you really want to prove your point so badly but in reality the smartest thing to do is just ignore them. Continuously arguing back in forth over petty things is futile. Some of us just want to do the quizzes without the drama.

This is really great. I got all of them without needing to guess once, so I'd say they're pretty accurate. John Adams looks like Waldorf, the shorter of the two old Muppets that heckle everybody.

Love these! I guessed Jackson on the first try, but I can see why some people had trouble with that one. Play-doh Jackson looks more likeable than any other depiction of the man I've ever seen. Seeing an almost cuddly version of such a dour person feels kinda dissonant.

This is certainly a unique quiz! Your sculptures are pretty good. My lack of familiarity with US presidents is why I didn't score well on this one, not anything lacking in the Play-Doh presidents resemblance to their real life counterparts. I thought the Andrew Jackson sculpture looked like Dustin Hoffman, though I was reasonably sure he was not a past president ;)

Impressive sculpting & camera work.

Taft/Cleveland, Adams/Van Buren, and Nixon were clear. Even Reagan and Kennedy didn't leave many alternate options.

Only one I missed first try was Grant. I should've gotten the uniform clues.
