The Laughing Creature appears as both an ally and an enemy Poppy’s Playtime: Chapter 3. The final Critter is DogDay, chained in the Playhouse’s prison cell. Warned by Ollie not to go there, you are forced to enter the creature information collection domain after defeating Miss Delight in the School. Trapped in a cell, DogDay’s body was torn in half. He lived long enough to contact you and beg you to finish the job.

Let’s break down everything DogDay said to determine what happened to him in the Chapter 3.

You…you are Poppy’s angel. Come save us. There’s nothing left to save, not here…You’re at CatNap’s house, angel. Their houses.” DogDay points out that there is nothing worth saving inside the Playhouse. We assume “their house” is referring to the Little Smiling Creatures that have spread inside the Playhouse like a plague, cannibalizing their own kind.

There are millions of eyes on you right now. Looking, waiting, hungry. They want nothing more than to crawl under your skin and gnaw on you little by little to fill what they feel is empty inside.” DogDay explains what might happen to the other Laughing Creatures and what he tries to avoid. But DogDay has been captured by CatNap, possibly due to red smoke. His body was torn apart and tied up to prevent him from escaping.

“The thing…CatNap. The prototype is his God, and this is what he does to heretics. These little toys follow CatNap to avoid that fate – and in return, they get fed.” The small toys mentioned The little creature smiled that you have encountered before. These people follow CatNap to avoid a different fate, possibly the Prototype taking the remains of Huggy Wuggy and Mommy Long Legs.

We tried to resist the Archetype’s control. I…am the last smiling creature.” This tells us how much power the Prototype has. Chances are it has something to do with it red smoke. It is possible that it telepathically links the Archetype with those who inhale the gas spread throughout the Playcare during Happy Hour, exerting influence to command others to “get up” and complete their tasks.

Listen to me, you need to leave this place. You need to live. You and Poppy can work this out, end this madness, this torment, this-Oh no…OH NO. Leave me alone. Please. Just go!…RUN!“This is the moment DogDay is overrun by little smiling creatures. They enter his ripped body, consuming his organs and mind instantly, then regain control to chase you.

DogDay is one of the Smiling Creatures, a group of mascots whose television show Playtime Co. with plush versions of all your favorite characters. When you play through Poppy’s Playtime: Chapter 3you’ll encounter cardboard cutouts of Smiling Critter characters, including the ominous CatNap (the third chapter’s main antagonist).

The Smiling Critter’s audio clips are normal at first, but pressing the cut button repeatedly reveals a darker history, possibly telling us what happened to each Critter inside the Playhouse. Laughing Creatures that attempt to escape or are devoured by their violent desires can be affected by the red smoke. As a result, DogDay escapes but ends up meeting his end before you.
