There are also a few pictures of the “inventors” and “awards” right before you enter the Sensory Lab. The idea is you are visiting a laboratory and are going to get a backstage look at the type of tests that are conducted. That is, before, a little purple dragon by the name of Figment takes over!

Right before I sneak into the fridge for a late-night snack!
