Our Story

Animal loving cousins and creative duo.

Dough Animal started in early 2019 when Bianca, Founding Creator of Dough Animal, and a full time designer and creative strategist used her love for creativity, and the memory of creating imaginary worlds with the home-made play dough her mom made for her.

Dough Animal focuses on early childhood education, being an advocate for learning through play from a young age. Helping to improve fine motor skills, learn textures through sensory play, hand-eye coordination, increased curiosity and knowledge and fun all at the same time.

A few months later, Casey became the Cape Town Creator for Dough Animal. Casey is mommy to Blake, a gorgeous 3 year old with bundles of energy, the sweetest nature and a big imagination. Casey loves creativity, being kind to nature and value for money, all of the things important to Dough Animal.


I love creating, whether that’s photographing, illustrating, baking or packaging, and you’ll find me doing all that at Dough Animal.


I love being  mommy to an imaginative busy little boy who inspires me every day to create new inventions for Dough Animal.
