Kids always want the coolest, newest toy that everyone else has. But what a about a completely unique, never-before-seen, toy that comes straight from their imagination? Child's Own Studio is doing exactly that by turning your kid's drawings into super cool plush toys.Suprise the child in your lift bringing their refrigerator artwork to life. Simply send in a copy of the drawing and within a couple of weeks your child will have inspired their very own unique toy.
More from the artist:
I understood and appreciated the need for something that my son would find reassuring in the event of an emergency. So, the idea came to me to make something that he would recognize, maybe something that he "designed" himself. And that's when I took one of his self-portrait drawings and fashioned a stuffed toy from it. He recognized it immediately when he first saw it. He said something like, "hey, that's my guy."
Child's Own Studio has a great flickr stream showcasing all their past projects, including mystical monsters, turntables, a family of hearts and a classy martini drinking frog.
Prices range between $60 and $130 CAD, and production takes about 4-6 weeks, which means you might be out of luck for this holiday season, but this is definitely a great gift idea any time of year!
