Tomorrow the Easter baskets in your home will either be with or without Peeps. I’ve always preferred chocolate eggs and never really cared for the sugar coated marshmallow confections until The Washington Post’s Peeps Show diorama contest was introduced three years ago.
Whether you like to consume Peeps or not, chances are you will be amazed at what people create out of those little marshmallow bunnies and chicks. So in honor of Easter, I present The Washington Post’s Peeps Show III as this week’s Tech Savvy Mama Website of the Week.
This year over 1,100 entries were submitted for the Peep Show III contest and the top 40 are featured on the Washington Post’s website. Top entries include notable current events like Captain Sullenberger’s emergency landing on the Hudson River, the Beijing Olympics, an inauguration scene complete with Aretha Franklin’s hat, and another depicting Purple Gate. There are scenes that delight my inner art historian like the winning entry and M.C. Escher’s Relativity, nods to the performing arts (Sweeney Todd, the Demon Barber of Peep Street), and movies scenes featuring Peeps in flicks such as Peeps of Wrath, Mary Peepins, Peep on Wire, Thelma and Louise, WALL*E, and many more. Mac fans will appreciate Steve Jobs Presents iPeep Nano and anyone who has ever lived in the DC Metro Area will appreciate the Peep Metro dioramas.
